The pediatric surgery clinic, which operates successfully in all fields of pediatric surgery, serves patients who are deprived of easy access to treatment, particularly at our Center of Urinary-Fecal Incontinence, Pelvic Floor Training and Urodynamics Studies and Organ Transplantation Center.  

The Center of Urinary-Fecal Incontinence, Pelvic Floor Training and Urodynamics Studies offers animated biofeedback therapies in fields ranging from proper urination training, urination and defecation postures to correct use of pelvic floor muscles/sphincter. In accordance with screening results, patients are also provided with psychotherapy support. Children are evaluated with the help of UF, UF/EMG, urodynamics and USG studies at the center, where our specialized physicians aim to follow a multi-disciplinary approach to offer up-to-date and evidence-based treatment in collaboration with pediatric nephrology, pediatric gastroenterology and pediatric psychiatry departments. 

In addition to providing high-quality service, the Pediatrics Clinic of Koç University Hospital keeps in touch with the national and international scientific circles, and contributes to generation of universal knowledge.

Consisting of physicians experienced in their respective fields and boasting equipment of global standards, our center carries out international research on the basis of a scientific and ethical approach with a firm command on advanced medical technologies. Our clinic is ranked among national and international exemplary reference centers adopting the latest medical and surgical approaches in all subcategories of pediatric surgery. Above all, the Pediatric Surgery Clinic of Koç University Hospital is a center in which families put their trust for the care of their babies and children. Since the first day the clinic started serving patients, our team has been able to respond to all kinds of complaints reported among babies and children, and parents have been visiting us with their children for treatment and long-term follow-up.
