Structurally, the Ankara City Hospital, with which we have a contract, is the largest hospital in the world, which was built in one go.

On the basis of countries, patients came from Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Ethiopia, Ghana, Germany, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Iran. Incoming patients came for eye, hair, dental, plastic, obesity and IVF treatments.

Turkish doctors, who keep up with the ever-evolving technology in terms of solving the problems, not only provide their services in European standards at a cheaper price, but also find solutions to diseases that cannot be solved in many countries of the world. The simplest example of this is finding a cure for diabetes in Turkey.
