About the department

The department of obstetrics and gynaecology at Memorial Sisli Hospital Istanbul provides quality diagnostics and treatment for the full range of diseases of the female genital organs. The competence of the department's specialists also includes the comprehensive management of pregnancy, including high-risk pregnancies and multiple pregnancies, obstetrics and postpartum care for mother and child. State-of-the-art ultrasound equipment allows doctors to monitor the development of the fetus in the womb effectively. Childbirth takes place in cosy and modern delivery rooms, equipped with an obstetric bed and various aids for a successful delivery. Doctors use acupuncture, aromatherapy, massage, relaxation baths, epidural anaesthesia, and other methods to relieve pain during childbirth. If necessary, obstetricians can perform a caesarean section. After delivery, the mother and newborn receive competent care and get advice on nutrition and caring for the baby.

Of particular interest to the gynaecologists of the department is the treatment of oncological pathologies of the female genital area. Cancer treatment is based on an interdisciplinary approach - all the necessary specialists from related fields are involved in the therapeutic process, including oncologists, radiation therapists, chemotherapists, surgeons and others. In addition, the department deals with treating diseases of the pelvic organs. Provides effective therapy for all types of urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The clinical practice involves using only modern and most effective methods of treatment that achieve excellent results both in simple benign pathologies and particularly complex forms of cancer. During surgical interventions, great attention is paid to preserving reproductive function in young women.
