The department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation adopts a holistic approach and aims to enhance individuals’ quality of life by means of preventing, diagnosing, treating and rehabilitating conditions that cause pain and disability.  

The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation department of Koç University Hospital employed evidence-based medical practices to assist patients without compromising their preferences. Empowered by an outstanding, academically-recognized and specialized team, we strive to provide innovative and leading healthcare services. 

Our Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians plan tailored treatments by leading and coordinating a team consisting of physiotherapists, physiotherapy technicians and rehabilitation nurses.  

Exercise is an integral part of the process of physiotherapy. Exercise programs customized for each patient are performed during therapy sessions in the presence of a physiotherapist.

Ultrasound-guided injections into the musculoskeletal system allow target-specific applications. Therefore, the majority of injections are administered under ultrasound guidance. 

Complaints reported by patients are addressed in a holistic manner, while treatment processes are closely and constantly observed at our department. During the course of physiotherapy, each patient’s current condition is reviewed by physicians and physiotherapists at joint council meetings. If necessary, treatment programs are modified as required.
