“We would like to thank prof.dr.nevzat selim Gökay for his knowledge and experience for the robotic knee replacement surgery he performed on my mother. He could not use his foot for years due to the pain he had suffered from the age of 5 until this age and the accident he had.
Our teacher Nevzat both corrected the curvature in her foot and cured my mother’s pain. We are very pleased with everything he has done. We are very lucky to have met an experienced, successful, relevant, and knowledgeable teacher like Nevzat.
Thank you very much for taking a close interest in us and following every process one-to-one.”
