About the Department of Pediatric Cardiology at Gaziosmanpasa Hospital of Yeniyuzyil University

The Department of Pediatric Cardiology at the Gaziosmanpasa Hospital of Yeniyuzyil University offers the widest range of diagnostic and therapeutic services for children with congenital and acquired heart diseases. The treatment of young patients is provided in close cooperation with the Department of Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery. Due to the excellent technical equipment, the availability of effective therapy methods and a high professionalism of doctors, the department is ranked among the top medical institutions of this kind in Turkey. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Cenap Zeybek.

The department's specialists carry out a long-term monitoring of young patients with congenital heart defects. As they grow up, they regularly undergo all the necessary diagnostic examinations in order to detect changes in their health. Should the state of health worsen, children and adolescents will undergo the optimal regimens of drug therapy to eliminate the symptomatic manifestations of the pathology, and thereby to improve their quality of life.
