The doctor operated on my mother, a meningioma was diagnosed in the left temporal lobe. Endless thanks to Professor Thure, his team, as well as Drs. Kaan Bey, Bihter Khanym and all the medical staff, and especially Dilara, Selma, Ban, Sedat, Baris and Mehmet.

traumatic brain injury
During a tourist trip, I received a head injury. I was offered the Yeditepe clinic, it was nearby and has a good reputation. After the examination, I was diagnosed with an intracranial hematoma. I got a consultation with Professor Ture, who explained everything to me and an operation was scheduled. Neurosurgeons used an endoscope to remove blood through a small hole. I felt an improvement in my condition almost immediately after the operation. Signs of damage to the nervous system are gone! I want to note that the doctors in Yeditepe are very professional, and the staff is attentive. And of course, thanks to Professor Ture for his time.

consultation
The consultation with Professor Ture went well. I received answers to all my questions from the professor. He explained the treatment plan to me in detail, which was not done in other clinics. There is an operation ahead and I think everything will be fine.

Ugur Ture on white matter dissection

About the doctor

Dr. Ture has a particular interest in the development of new surgical techniques and shares the desire to expand the boundaries and limitations of modern neurosurgery.

 

Special Achievements

The series and results of successful surgeries performed by the Honorary Chairman of the World Federation of Neurosurgery, Prof. Dr. Ugur Ture and his team are featured on the cover of the August 2021 issue of the Journal of Neurosurgery. It is the most prestigious journal in the field of neurosurgery in the world.

A cover story published on the journal titled “Removal of thalamic tumors with microneurosurgery” presents the results of operations performed by Prof. Ture and his team. They used specialized techniques developed for operations on the thalamus, one of the most inaccessible areas of the brain. The success of the surgical methods developed by Prof. Ture himself, as well as the latest technological developments, are widely publicized throughout the world. This study by Dr. Ture, which will serve as a guide in the field of neurosurgery, is also vital in terms of determining the latest advances in this field and gives hope to patients.

 

Improving the White Matter Dissection Technique

Dr. Ture developed a particular interest in white matter dissection after being introduced to the technique in 1991 in Zurich. He worked on this topic, using a microscope and a suction tube for the first time, and developed a step-by-step simple method of teaching. After perfecting this technique, he introduced it to the neurosurgical community, teaching neurosurgeons from all over the world, giving seminars and visiting international laboratories. Through these courses, more than a thousand neurosurgeons worldwide have been trained in white matter dissection.
