Cardiac surgery

Cardiovascular surgery is all of the surgical procedures performed for the treatment of diseases in the cardiovascular systems. These procedures are an effective method in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases are among the deadliest diseases worldwide. Therefore, cardiovascular surgery is a life-saving treatment method. Cardiovascular surgery includes different techniques and methods used in the treatment of different types of diseases. Techniques such as open heart surgery, closed heart surgery and minimally invasive heart surgery are used in the treatment of heart diseases. Open heart surgery is the opening of the heart by opening the thorax and surgical intervention. Closed heart surgery is a method used in the treatment of heart diseases without opening the thorax. Minimally invasive cardiac surgery is a technique in which heart surgery is performed by making small incisions. In the treatment of vascular diseases, endovascular surgery and open surgery methods are used. Endovascular surgery includes interventions performed by entering the vein with catheters from outside the body. Open surgery methods, on the other hand, refer to surgical interventions made by cutting the skin. Cardiovascular surgery includes surgical procedures as well as non-surgical treatments such as lifestyle changes, diet, exercise and drug therapy. These treatments can be applied before or after surgical procedures in the treatment of diseases. In conclusion, cardiovascular surgery is an effective method in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Techniques and methods are determined by the severity and type of the disease. Therefore, a different treatment plan is determined for each patient. It is important for patients to follow their doctor's advice before and after surgical procedures.


Bypass surgery is a surgical method used for the treatment of heart patients. During this surgery, it is aimed to remove or bypass the blockages in the coronary arteries that feed the heart of the patient. Bypass surgery is usually performed by opening the sternum and the patient's heart is stopped. Thus, the surgeon can repair the blockages in the coronary arteries or create a new pathway (bypass). These new pathways allow the patient's blood to flow through the coronary arteries that feed the heart.

Heart Valve Surgery

Heart valve surgery is a surgical procedure to correct problems in the main valves of the heart. Heart valves are important to keep blood moving in the right parts of the heart. However, over time, the covers may become damaged and become unable to perform their functions. In this case, heart valve surgery is done to repair or replace the valves.

Aortic Surgery

The aorta is the main vessel leaving the heart and carries oxygenated blood throughout the body. However, in some cases, the aorta may enlarge or rupture, which is serious. Aortic rupture is a life-threatening condition that requires immediate intervention. Aortic enlargement can enlarge over time, leading to conditions such as heart failure. Therefore, aortic surgery is an important issue in the field of cardiovascular surgery.

Cardiovascular Occlusion Treatment

Carotid artery occlusion is a disease caused by blockages in the cerebral vessels. These blockages reduce or block blood flow to the brain, which can affect brain function and even cause paralysis. Treatment of carotid artery occlusion depends on the cause and severity of the occlusion.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure and requires a detailed health assessment and preparation before surgery. It is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes an average of 2-4 hours. During the surgery, the skin and fat layer is loosened and the muscles underneath are tightened. Excess skin and adipose tissue are removed, and the abdominal area gets a tighter and smoother appearance.

Ear Aesthetics

Ear aesthetic surgery is an operation that is usually performed under local anesthesia and takes about one to two hours. During the procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision to reach the ear cartilage. The cartilage is then reshaped or removed, using stitches as needed. When the procedure is completed, the ears are wrapped with bandages and it is recommended to wear a special cap for several days.
