Currently, the amount of spinal surgery cases per year is more than 600. The spine team features Dr. Deniz Konya, Dr. Zafer Orkun Toktas and Dr. Baran Yilmaz; three professors solely dedicated to spinal surgery


What can a fellow expect?

As previous fellows, the new attendees are welcome to participate in the daily work along with all other occasions and social events. We offer a wide variety of spine surgeries including aging spine, deformity, degenerative, spinal oncology and intradural lesions.

Since our clinic is a referral point for elective cases, the fellow has the chance to deal with comprehensive problems of the spine.

According to regulations, the fellow can be present at clinic visits and case discussions, examine patients and scrub in for surgery. In case of special interest on a particular disease, our affiliates can offer an extended exposure. Motion analysis and anatomy labs are available for participation in research. We encourage fellows to collaborate with team members to accomplish an academic research work.

Istanbul offers a wide variety of housing and accommodation possibilities which can be provided at a reasonable cost. The stay at Istanbul is attractive for the visitors regarding the city's historic value and the hospitality of Turkish citizens.
