The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the American Hospital is one of the first private Obstetrics and Gynecology clinics in Turkey; the department has always consistently improved its over all quality year by year and its strict ethical principles have never been compromised while delivering the very best in healthcare services. Covering all up-to-date and evidence-based practices recognized by the international medical community, the department provides “team-based services” that are perfectly in line with today’s health services requirements. The department offers a balanced blend of experienced senior physicians and dynamic energetic younger physicians with an essential duel emphasis on professional ethics and the cultivation of a team spirit ethos.
 
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the American Hospital works as a tertiary-care reference center meeting conditions that could not be fully diagnosed by third party facilities or conditions that are subject to controversies regarding treatment strategies or disorders that are jointly followed up by more than one department.

We have clinical councils that can make decisions in line with evidence-based medicine by jointly discussing these difficult cases. All these approaches clearly demonstrate the department’s forward-thinking cohesive mentality. The Obstetrics and IVF Center is also known as an academic clinic by both local and international healthcare organizations and is regarded as an important reference point in this field of medicine. We continuously consolidate this aspect with scientific meetings held at regular intervals, courses, and congresses as well as academic papers published in prestigious international journals.
 
Another unique feature of the clinic that distinguishes it from many comparable clinics in Turkey and around the world, is that patients are not charged for practices which would have positive effects on their treatment;  in other words, such practices are not offered to patients as an option. Considering each patient’s overall benefit, these treatments are included in their payment packages. The department renders healthcare services that are fully compliant to international standards and meet provisions of ethics in line with evidence-based medicine.
