Messages from our patients...

When I was 16, I had two brain hemorrhages and was bedridden. I spent a long time in intensive care. My life was considered a miracle. I didn't give up and got better, now I'm excited to start university... I have 2 supermen. One is my sister; she brought me to the right doctor. The second one is my doctor Engin Cakar who brought me to this point.

We come from Senegal. My mother couldn't walk. As a result of the treatment she received, she can now walk with assistance and manage all her needs. We cannot thank Professor Engin Cakar and his team enough for their professionalism, meticulousness and courtesy.

The whole team was really very caring, very friendly and very sweet. It was very enjoyable to work with both my doctor Engin and his team. I would like to thank everyone in the team and of course my doctor Engin Cakar. I watched them work wonders with their experiences, not only for myself but also for many patients here, and I still continue to watch.

The entire team, especially our professor Engin Cakar, cares closely about patients and their relatives. The team energy is great. Although my patient and the patients here are difficult, the team is patient and friendly. We forgot that we were in the hospital. However, we came from the intensive care unit crying, thank God, our laughter echoes as we recover.

I was singing at the bar with my group of friends at that time. I had a brain hemorrhage and suddenly fell down. My friends took me to the hospital. I was bedridden due to a brain hemorrhage. After 4 months of physical therapy, I can walk and sing again.

I had a brain hemorrhage twice in 2018. I stayed in intensive care for a long time. When I woke up, my left side was paralyzed. I lost my arm functions and my ability to walk. If I was able to walk again in such a short time, it is a miracle and I am a miracle. The person who performed this miracle was my doctor, Professor Engin Cakar and his rehabilitation team.

As far as we observed during our 9-month inpatient + 10-month outpatient treatment process, there are many people who stand up and walk almost running as a result of the treatment (my 73-year-old husband, who has an aortic prosthetic valve, is one of them). Being very patient and involving the family is extremely valuable and proven through experience, as you suggested. May you have plenty of energy and good luck. So glad to have you!

My father had a brain hemorrhage and spent 130 days in intensive care. They told us to take him home because he would be bedridden for the rest of his life. We came here by air ambulane. It has been 7 months and my father is now walking, eating and talking. Endless thanks especially to my doctor Engin Cakar and his entire team who contributed.
