The first meeting of Yücelen Hospitals Group, which stands out with its work in the field of health tourism in Dalyan - Dalaman - Ortaca destination, which is among the favourite centres of tourism, was held at Ortaca Yücelen Hospital with foreigners living in the region.
The informative meeting started with the presentation of Chief Physician of the hospital, Surgeon Alper Boz, and continued with the presentations of Nutritionist Ebru Daşgın and Psychologist Yasemin Arslan Sürücü.
The treats prepared between the "Coffee Break" in order to make healthy nutrition the motto of our lives were highly appreciated by the guests.
General Surgeon Alper Boz, who also explained the surgical procedures performed, stated that obesity is a major worldwide epidemic.
The only treatment option for morbid obesity is surgical operations. The most common operations are gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy, which we call the gold standard. These operations can be performed at our group of hospitals. Stating that obesity causes metabolic diseases such as blood pressure, diabetes, fatty liver, asthma, sleep apnea, gallbladder stone formation, reflux, cardiovascular diseases, he said, "We recommend bariatric surgery in patients with a body mass index of 40 and above and a body mass index of 35 and above, as well as diabetes, cholesterol, hypertension, joint diseases, who have previously tried diet attempts but have not achieved results."
Turkey is the favourite of Health Tourism

Svetlana Borzenkova, one of the previous patients of Surgeon Alper Boz, who ended her speech by saying that the desire of the patients to get rid of their weight, the desire to change their lifestyle and eating habits is as important as the success of the operation, stated that obesity is a serious health problem that deeply affects human health and psychology, and that she felt lighter and felt eased with the 24 kilos she lost.
