I'm working as consultant neurosurgeon in Sisli Florence Nightingale Hospital and Istanbul Bilim University. Although I attend all kinds of neurosurgical procedures, I am especially interested in pediatric surgery and stereotactic and functional neurosurgery. I'm working in Istanbul Bilim University Spina Bifida Center and performing operations like myelomeningocele repair, tethered cord releasing, lipomyelomeningocele repair, type 1 and 2 split cord releasing, ventriculoperitoneal shunt operations, neuroendoscopic procedures. In spina bifida center, average number of operations is nearly 200 per year. I also perform intrauterine myelomeningocele repair in our center. After performing 4 fetoscopic procedures in 2015, we started to perform open fetal surgery for myelomeningocele in 2017. Now, we are proceeding our fetal surgery project with open fetal surgery.  I'm also attending all operations like deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, baclofen pump insertion, selective dorsal rhizotomy in stereotactic and functional neurosurgery section. Beside these, I'm giving lectures in Istanbul Bilim University School of Medicine.
