Treatment of brain, skull, spine and spinal cord tumors with microsurgery and endoscopic techniques.
In 1995, I completed my microsurgery training at the University of Hacettepe Neurological Sciences Institute. In 1998, I proceeded my training as an observer doctor at the Department of Neurosurgery of University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA. In 2012, I attended Basic Neuroendoscopy and Skullbase Endoscopy courses at the University of Ghent in Belgium. Between 1994 and 2015, I worked at the Ankara Training and Research Hospital of Ministry of Health of Turkey as a specialist and also trained neurosurgery residents. In 2015, I retired from the Ministry of Health Ankara Training and Research Hospital. Between 2015 and 2018, I worked as a specialist neurosurgeon at the Medistate Hospital in Kavacik, Istanbul, Turkey. Between 2018 and 2019, I worked at the Al-Kafeel Super Specialized Hospital of Karbala, Iraq. I currently work in Istanbul, Turkey.

Neurosurgeons treat disorders of the brain and nervous system: meninges, skull, pituitary gland, spinal cord, meninges and vertebral column, and cranial and spinal nerves. They use minimally invasive surgery, endoscope, operation microscope, neuroradiology imaging like CT, MRI, PET. Patients may go to a neurosurgeon for conditions like hemorrhages, hydrocephalus, head or spinal cord trauma, spinal disc herniation, infections and tumors.
Patients rightfully prefer a physician with a considerable amount of experience in performing a particular procedure. Dr. Gokcek has over 31 years of experience in neurosurgery. He has worked in leading hospitals in Ankara and Istanbul, two of the largest cities of Turkey, and has performed many successful operations.
Dr. Gokcek has been using microsurgery techniques since 1995 and endoscopic technique since 2005 in his operations. He also performs operations by using neuronavigation and intraoperative neuromonitoring. He has experience in percutaneous and minimal invasive neurosurgery too.
When choosing a doctor, it may be helpful to consider other patients' experiences. As such, Dr. Gokcek has successfully treated thousands of patients in Ankara and Istanbul, and received numerous positive feedback letters from patients, showing their gratitude and appreciation.
