In this video, Turkey’s leading cardiovascular surgeon talks about his specialization and experience in the field of aortic aneurysm surgery.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery is one field, which requires specialization and very good infrastructure as deals with swelling in the wall of aorta. The surgeon also explains stem cell treatment program for ascending aortic aneurysm in which multipotent stem cells of the patient are used, which has showed favorable results in improving heart function.
Following is the video narration.
“Especially the aortic aneurysms are another area and ascending aortic aneurysms……..ascending aorta. They also require specialized team and infrastructure. We are specialized in aortic surgery, aortic aneurysm surgery and many aortic replacements. The other area is of course which is major area is myocardial vascularisation procedure including the coronary aortic bypass operation. Again, coronary aortic bypass.. Operation, though there are rude things for us.
We are receiving more and more re-operation patients and complicated patients with low ejection fractions, low heart function. Different kind of myocardial vascularisation procedure including beating heart surgeries, combined surgeries for … valve repairs or valve replacement and also ….. procedure with our cardiology team.
Very soon, we will be starting our stem cell treatment programme.”
Stem Cell Transplantation for Aortic Aneurysm Surgery
“Stem cell transplantation or stem cell treatment is the programme which uses multipotent stem cells derived from patient’s own blood or bone marrow. And this research is still ongoing and the results are very variable. However the stem cell injections either interventional without surgery by catheter or during the surgery, is favourable, at least I find it favourable results in improve the heart function.”
Hospitals in Turkey
“Actually, it is really, it is one of the most difficult job. This is really a top notch hospital with all the infrastructure and equipment most up-to-date. We do everything. Actually this is very one of the few hospitals, even in including the hospitals in United States. Within its all categories, and size …one of the most advanced hospitals in the world.”
Tourism in Turkey
“Actually Turkey is a rising star now for not only for health issues however for tourism and economically and this country with its very old culture and with a huge historical background, is very close to many neighbouring countries as well as it is very close to everywhere. We have the chance to be situated in the middle of the world. And the Turkish airline flies more than 200 flights internationally over the direct flights to Istanbul.
There are flights from North America, more than I believe, 8 flights………Washington DC, Los Angeles,Toronto, Chicago and they are planning to increase their flights to Miami and Atlanta, also from South America. All over the world it is very easy to reach. Our international departments organise all the whole trip for the patients including their airport pickups, including their Visa, which is very easy and most comfortable and most countries does not require a visa to come to Turkey. Of course the people are very friendly and this is a very safe environment here.”
