As Anadolu Medical Center, we provide services in 8 operating rooms with modern medical equipment in all branches, meeting patient and employee safety requirements.
The central sterilization system, ventilating system and the state-of-the-art devices in the operating rooms create ideal conditions for patient safety. All operations including microscopic, endoscopic, arthroscopic, laparoscopic and robotic surgery operations are performed successfully at our operating rooms.
Operating room staff
We give priority to performing an operation under the best conditions and give great importance to team work. Our operating rooms serve on a 7/24 basis, and consist of experienced staff including 7 anesthesiologists, 2 of whom are in the team on duty, 20 surgical nurses, 3 recovery room nurses, 12 anesthesia technicians, 2 perfusionists, 9 sterilization technicians, 11 operating room technicians, 1 depot and material management staff member and 2 operating room patient clerks.
Technical equipment in our operating rooms
Two types of sterilization devices are used in our operating rooms according to the physical characteristics of surgical instruments: Steam autoclaves, ethylene oxide sterilizers. After sterilization, quality controls are performed by physical, mechanical, chemical and biological methods, and the results of these methods are recorded. There are elevators, including dirty and clean elevators, between the operating room and sterilization room. The operating rooms and associated areas are ventilated with a sterile ventilating system. In our fully-equipped operating rooms, there are central oxygen, nitrogen, protoxide, vacuum and air-conditioning installations, by means of which operations are performed at optimum conditions.
In our operating rooms, all systems, instruments, devices are suspended from the ceiling (pendant) to prevent ambient pollution. Moreover, anesthesia procedures that represent the most important and vital part of every operation are performed with utmost care by a specialized team at our hospital. All vital signs and medications of our patients are digitally recorded from the time they arrive at the operating room until the time they leave the operating room. The existence of a Coronary/Cardiovascular Surgery Intensive Care Unit, General Intensive Care unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit constitutes vital assurance in all operations. In all operating rooms, there are computers from which test and imaging results of our patients can be viewed.
As the dental unit and gastroenterologic instruments can be carried to the operating rooms, dental treatments, and interventions such as gastroscopy, colonoscopy and ERCP can be performed under general anesthesia / sedoanalgesia.
Post-operation - anesthesia follow-up
When the operation is over, patients are awakened and transferred to the recovery unit. Here, we continually follow up the vital functions of our patients, and provide pain treatment. We monitor our patients closely until they are transferred to their rooms at the clinic.

I want to learn more about the operating room!
After deciding on surgery with our surgeon; our anesthesia team completes necessary preparations, examinations and tests, and then it is time for the surgery. After your admission procedure is completed, you are sedated with a medication administered to you in your bed.
Transfering to the operating room
In the operation room where you are brought in the company of your nurse, the anesthesia team uses a special form and verifies some details, notably, your identity details, your operation, your operation site, and takes you to your special operating room. In this room, the operating team (your surgeon, surgical nurse, operating room technician, anesthesiologist and anesthesia technician) uses surgery break form and reviews again important information such as identity details, surgery, special conditions and materials to be used.
You are transferred from your bed to the operating table with the help of linen with a special slide. A blanket connected to a warm air blowing device is used to protect you from cold.
In the meantime, medications to be used in anesthesia and surgery are dispensed on a special station called pyxis.
Surgical intervention starts after anesthesia. The anesthesia and surgery team is present throughout the surgical process. At the end of your surgical procedure, you are awakened and taken to the recovery room within the operating theatre so that you recover yourself under the observation of the anesthesia team. Here, your vital signs are observed and you are provided with pain therapy. When you meet the necessary safety conditions (vital signs, respiration, heart rate, blood pressure), i.e. conditions for discharge from the recovery room, you are guided to your nurse by the recovery room nurse.
