Prof. Fatih Aslan, M.D.
  • He studied minimally invasive, non-surgical and advanced endoscopic techniques, such as endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for treatment of early stage esophagus, stomach and colon cancers and polyps, endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) in achalasia, in various countries, especially Japan, following his gastroenterology residency.
  • He performed most of these procedures successfully for the first time in our country and he performed more than 5000 advanced endoscopy procedures successfully.
  • The scientific outcomes of the successful procedures were granted numerous awards in national and international congresses.
