I was born in Izmir in 1965. I got into Ege University Medical Faculty after completing Izmir Atatürk High School.
Exercising is good for you, but sometimes you can injure yourself when you play sports or exercise. Accidents, poor training practices, or improper gear can cause them. Some people get hurt because they are not in shape. Not warming up or stretching enough can also lead to injuries.
Our surgeons are experts in diagnosing and treating sports medicine injuries. Our doctors have advanced training and are not only board certified in orthopaedic surgery, but some have received further board certification specifically in sports medicine as well. We treat a wide rang of sports injuries in a wide range of patients.
Our patients benefit from the most up to date treatments and therapies. Non-surgical techniques are used when possible and surgical options are discussed a necessary. Minimally invasive are arthroscopic techniques are used to get our athletes back to activities as quickly and safely as possible.
The most common sports injuries are:
- Sprains and strains
- Knee injuries
- Swollen muscles
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Pain along the shin bone
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Fractures (broken bones)
If you get hurt, stop playing. Continuing to play or exercise can cause more harm. Treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery.
