Standards prevent patients being damaged due to the devices, medications or applications used throughout the treatment and ensure the most recent, updated and evidence-based applications.

Except the standards on patient admission, assessment and care, there are also standards on the infection control, facility management, risk management, employee trainings and qualities, general management, quality improvement and information management.

In short, accreditation includes patients, service environments for patients and service providers.Therefore, patients are provided the safest and best quality service in the institutions operating in compliance with the accreditation standards.Administration style, organizational chart and terms of references are determined. Studies are carried out in order to improve the quality and to sustain development.





Cancer therapy is comprised of a group of therapies which necessitates operation of multiple medical branches in cooperation. Here, various surgical branches work in cooperation with Radiation Oncologists and Medical Oncologists. Pathology is important during diagnosis, while Radiology and Nuclear Medicine departments are of value to support diagnosis and monitor treatment outcomes.

Medical oncology refers to branch of science which offers pharmaceutical therapy (drug therapy) for cancer. Medical oncology cures cancer patient using anti-cancer drugs (chemotherapy) on one side and tries to eliminate internal problems (infections, renal failures, heart failures, nutritional disorders etc) on the other side.

Advanced Modern Medical Technologies

In current Radiation Oncology, early identification (before cancerous tissue comprised of abnormally growing cells reaches a particular size) and direct treatment of involved tissue are possible thanks to the advanced technological devices.

Using these devices, it is possible to:

  • Treat tumors localized in breast, head, neck and lung
  • Treat deep and superficial tumors located in other organs
  • Baseline diagnosis and grading of cancer
  • Determination of extent
  • Evaluation of response to treatment
  • Determination of viable cancer cell load for planning cancer therapy
  • Planning best possible therapy for the patient
  • Ease of use in all cancer patient and ensuring highest level of patient’s comfort


Radiotherapy refers to kill or stop growth of cancerous cells using high-energy radiation. It is treatment method, similar to operation and chemotherapy, in cases with cancer,and it may be not only used alone, but it can be also combined with pre- and post-operative procedures and chemotherapy. Treatment is dependent on many significant factors including but not limited to age, overall health status,type of cancer diagnosed, grade and localization. The treatment decision is made after patient is examined by multiple physicians in relevant departments and each patient is individually considered. Therefore, customized therapy is planned for each patient even if they have the same type of cancer.

Radiation Oncology PET-CT

Radiation Oncology uses devices which enable three-dimensional conformal and dose-adjusted radiotherapy. Such devices are products of state-of-the-art technology and they ensure elimination of cancer cells and minimize the possibility of recurrence by enabling use of high therapy doses. Pet-CT is used as pathfinder when radiotherapy is planned for cancer patients in Radiation Oncology department and thus, the possibility to miss viable tumor cells is eliminated. When this method is used, even smallest tissue involving tumor cell is identified and tumor is completely targeted and involved in radiated area. This approach enhances control rate and increases survival rate.

PT-CT is most commonly used in oncologic diseases and it offers ease of use and highest level of comfort ranging from primary diagnosis of cancer, grading, determination of extent, treatment response to determine viable cancer load for planning therapy in all oncologic patients.


Recently, RadiationOncology offers three-dimensional conformal brachytherapy. Radiation sources and special applicators, which were previously placed into patient’s body, are imaged using computerized tomography device and they are transferred to planning system. Thus, accuracy of procedure is controlled and if any fault is determined, it is corrected before therapy is applied. Patient is provided therapy therapy after three-dimensional image is obtained and necessary calculations are made. This system also eliminates the risk of missing tumor.



In Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery Center, vessels occluded during heart attack can be restored with instant intervention by professional healthcare team offering 24/7 service.

High-technology64-slice computerized tomography devices hosted in their centers offers superior advantages particularly in examining heart vessels. In this method,examination of heart is completed only in 4 seconds and three-dimensional and detailed images enable rapid and efficient diagnosis. Thus, stenosis and occlusions in heart vessels are identified in pain-free and rapid manner without requiring conventional angiography.

In the hospital’s centers, angiographic procedures can be performed via arterial puncture in wrist region. Angiographic procedures originating from puncture of arterial structures in inguinal region are associated with risk of dilation (balloons formation) of vessel, inguinal swelling due to uncontrolled bleeding and extremely painful and disabling problems and these risks are almost zero percent in angiograph performed via puncture of arteries in wrist.

Pediatric Cardiology teams offers healthcare services including diagnosis and invasive procedures and non-operational repair of congenital cardiac septal defects in all pediatric age groups starting from neonatal period.

Medicana Health Centers perform kidney, liver, bone marrow and cornea transplantations at international standards. Medicana Health Group is among remarkable healthcare facilities which support donation and transplantation.

Kidney Transplantation

Medicana Bahcelievler, Medicana Camlica, Medicana International Istanbul and Medicana InternationalAnkara hospitals and their specialists undertakes success transplantation operations. Medicana Bahcelievler Hospital was awarded “Prize for Private Hospital With Highest Number of Transplantation” by Ministry of Health due to 93 transplantation operations.

Liver Transplantation

Most patient requiring liver transplantation are cases with hepatic cirrhosis. Recently, the view is recognized that patient with end stage hepatic cirrhosis and life expectancy below 1 year is candidate for liver transplantation and such patient is (or should) recommended transplantation. Half of patients with such condition dies secondary to the disease or complications. Success rate is over 80% in liver transplantations which are performed in timely manner. Organ transplantation is the only treatment method for patients with chronic organ failure. Death is inevitable for those patients if organ cannot be supplied.

Bone Marrow Transplantation

Based on criteria of European Union, adequate transplantation in a particular state implies 50 bone marrow transplantation per one million subjects. Considering this figure, there should be minimum 3500 bone marrow transplantations in our country. However,according to data issued by Ministry of Health for year 2011, 2100 bone marrow transplantations were performed in the country. Medicana Ankara Hospital has currently nine-bed bone marrow transplantation unit and it is the only private healthcare facility performing bone marrow transplantation in Ankara. The unit is licensed by Ministry of Health on February 2012 and autologous stem cell transfer was performed in 6 patients.


Surgical Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is roughly characterized as a disease influencing deeply localized structures of brain and it accounts for a substantial part of symptoms of movement disorders. Movement disorder refers to tremor particularly in arms and legs, body stiffness and decrease in velocity of movements.

Deep Brain Stimulation

Treatment of the disease involves medications and surgery. Principal active substance of medical treatment is dopamine. However, surgical treatment is performed if resistance occurs against drug in the length of time and drug-related movement disorder develops.

If a patient is well eligible for operation, efficiency will range between 40 percent and 90 percent. The efficiency rate of 40 percent implies that a patient with inability to dress and undress without support may wear garments without any support.Very mild residual tremor in single hand of patient who experienced insufferable tremor in the part and attending control visits by walking with spouse in arm despite inability to walk without support of spouse due to stiffness are examples of priceless happiness for both patient and physician.


All procedures of general plastic surgery branch are performed in our plastic surgery clinics. In addition, our clinics also host a modem lipoplasty device, which is used for all procedures focusing fat tissues and a radio frequency device which enables resection of several skin lesions. Thus, patients may be intervened at outpatient settings resulting with reduction in hospitalization period.

Briefly, aesthetic procedures involving face- and forehead-lift as well as augmentation and reduction of eyelid, nose and breast, any and all types of lipoplasty operations for loose portions of abdomen, lower leg, arm and waist, all cancers of skin, mucosa, oral cavity and jaw and all problems related with mouth jaw,facial and cranial bones.


Hair transplantation is gradually getting more popularized and prices are somewhat cheaper in comparison with prices offered n the past and accordingly, it is the most common aesthetic intervention preferred by men. When hair transplantation is performed by experts, outcomes are very positive, while it should be kept in mind that unsuccessful hair transplantation leads to extreme misery.

Recently, two methods are used for hair transplantation. The first one is FUT technique, which is the conventional hair transplantation method. In this technique, a tissue slice is obtained from hairy scalp located in bilateral post-auricular regions. Donor site is sutured. Tissue is separated into follicles and they are transferred to recipient site.

FUE method, which is regarded by patients as modern method, hair units are individually obtained from neck region and thus, suture procedure in the conventional method is avoided. The most remarkable difference of two methods is presence of suture scar. In the first contact with plastic surgeon, patient is informed in details about pros and cons of two methods and a decision is made for which method is best option for patient. Both methods are performed under local anesthesia and the procedure last approximately 5-6 hours.
