The Deputy Medical Director, The Nigerian Turkish Nizamiye Hospital, Abuja, Dr. Atilla Emiroglu, has said that the health facility is set to commence services for heart valve replacement and coronary artery bypass grafting otherwise known as open heart surgery.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the hospital, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, in Abuja on Sunday.
Emiroglu noted that the hospital decided to start the open heart surgery in Nigeria to help reduce the cost of foreign medical treatment for heart-related ailments.
To achieve this, the DMD said the hospital had brought in five surgeons from Turkey to reside permanently in the country to facilitate the initiative.
“Our surgeons are resident in Abuja and work here fulltime at the hospital. With what we have in place, there is absolutely no need for patients to travel abroad for treatment of whatever illness.
“Our watchword has been proper diagnosis. The hospital policy ensures that all surgical procedures in the hospital are carried out using international standard and best practices.”
He said, “The Nigerian Turkish Nizamiye Hospital decided to commence this service after a careful analysis of the spate of heart diseases prevalent in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja.”
