The Turkish Nizamiye Hospital in Abuja says its Open Heart Surgery Clinic has successfully carried out 20 open heart surgeries in the past one year.

This was contained in a statement signed by Mohammed Abubakar, the public relations officer of the hospital.

He said: “The Turkish Nizamiye Hospital celebrates the success of its Open Heart Surgery Clinic in the last one year that saw it performed 20 open heart surgeries that consist of 18 coronary bypass and two valve replacement surgeries.”

The Open Surgery Clinic is headed by a renowned cardiovascular surgeon from Turkey with over 30 years experience and credited with well over 15,000 open heart surgeries in Turkey.

“We are proud of our modest achievements and pledge to continue to render quality services to Nigeria. We took the bold step to invest in a world-class medical facility in Nigeria, as a way of reducing the number of monies spent on medical tourism in the country,” he said.

“The Open Heart Surgery Team of the Nizamiye hospital can boast of some of the best hands in cardiovascular surgeries. Ours is a combination of expertise, experience and the fact that the team is resident in Nigeria within the hospital premises and operate on a 24/7 basis.”

Abubakar said there is no need for Nigerians to travel abroad for medical treatment when in most cases some of the illnesses can be treated in Nigeria.

“We have some outstanding hospitals in Nigeria that can handle most of the medical cases that Nigerians travel abroad for. The Nizamiye Hospital boasts of a functional Cathlab, an MRI machine, a CT scan machine and other advanced medical equipment. We also operate 24 hours seven days a week emergency clinic. Also looking at the issues of open heart surgery, the aftermath of the surgery is as important as the surgery itself. So why travel the long distance when you can do all of that in Nigeria,” he said.

“We made sure to bring the medical standards of Europe and America to Nigeria, and this standard we have strived to maintain over time given the fact that it is estimated that Nigeria spends $1billion annually on medical tourism.”

The Nizamiye Hospital was inaugurated in 2014 with a mandate to render quality medical services to Nigerians.
