During my training, I worked in pediatric and adult cardiovascular surgery department and had the opportunity to work with Professor Dr. Sait Aslamaci and Prof. Dr. Atilla Sezgin. Also I found opportunity to observe Prof. Dr. Emre Belli and Alain Sarraf in Paris.I was exposed to a wide range of congenital cardiac diseases in both children and adults. In addition to this I participated fully in the adult cardiology and cardiac surgical meetings. During this attachment I was trained to perform both adult and paediatric cardiac emergencies. I participated fully in the frequent team meetings and multidisciplinary discussions. I have performed over 250 open and closed pediatric cardiac procedures in 2007 as a primary surgeon and over 300 cases in 2008. In 2009 and later I have performed over 400 adult and mostly congenital cardiac cases per year. I have performed over 200 cases of Arterial Switch and too many neonatal procedures also involved 34 cardiac transplantation and have performed two in pediatric age and 1 in adult. I have operated patients coming from abroad (especially from middle east) more than 2000 patients. Since than I operate routinely patients from asia, africa and europe. Overall congenital mortality is around 5%, adult is around 1%. 

I am also experienced in minimally invasive pulmonic valve insertion, all kinds of conduits types and insertions.I am also interested in genetically engineered biomaterials used in cardiac surgery and have enough clinical experience to pioneer in some certain cases for introducing to the cardiac surgeons in Europe. 

I took part in the weekly cardiology review meetings where the adult and congenital patients are discussed. I have experience of the pre-operative investigation and assessment of patients with coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease and diseases of the thoracic aorta. I have also participated and performed the techniques fully in the peri-operative management and postoperative follow-up of such patients. All kinds of adult cardiac surgical patients, minimally invasive valvular surgery, valvuloplasties, arcus aorta surgery, full arterial coronary revascularisation, etc. are my routine daily activity.

I have gained useful and varied experience in managing adults and children with wide range of congenital and acquired cardio-respiratory diseases, in the surgical and paediatric intensive care units this has included the management of ventilated patients with congenital and acquired cardiac and respiratory disease including the resuscitation of patients with duct dependant cyanotic heart disease , ischemic heart disease thoracic and cardiac trauma dissection of the thoracic aorta. I have also gained experience in the postoperative management of the children and adults following numerous cardiothoracic and vascular surgical procedures and all procedures about long term ECMO applications. I am proficient in the insertion of arterial, central venous, haemofiltration and pulmonary artery catheter and endotracheal intubation in adults. I am also highly experienced in the insertion of the arterial and central venous lines, haemofiltration and peritoneal dialysis catheters and endo-tracheal intubation in children and neonates.

I teach regularly in my own institution, both as a didactic lecturer and practical guide. Since 2004, I have become even more committed to teaching and have developed a digital data of cardiac operations performed at Baskent University, Ankara, Turkey. This has created a valuable teaching archive which might be developed into a web-based resource. We have developed the necessary archiving software and acquired appropriate digital video editing techniques. The films we have made have been well received at international meetings. 

I am a committed and enthusiastic teacher. My teaching sessions always evaluated well. In addition to the informal teaching of medical students and more junior medical staff on the wards, in the ICU and operating theatre, I have also been involved in formal lecturing both on the cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia. I also performed database collection and informed our data to European Database for Congenital Cardiac Surgery system annually and verified them. 

Patients are routinely being consultated to me from different centers especially from abroad. I like to go abroad to give support both for surgery itself and managing for establishment cardiac surgery clinics. This creates a great oppurtunity for sharing our experiences, new ideas, some educational facilities and new friendships.
