An important milestone was achieved at the Pediatric Heart Center of Konya City Hospital, one of the prominent medical centers in Turkey. A historic record was set with the number of challenging surgeries performed in just two days. Eight infants born with congenital heart conditions were successfully brought back to life through the surgeries that were carried out with success.
Thanks to hours of surgery carried out by the team led by Dr. Murat Şimşek and Dr. Hüseyin Dursin, the infants managed to cling to life.
It was noted that the unit, which has become the 'Heart of Central Anatolia' for the infants, received patients from cities such as Denizli, Antalya, Diyarbakır, Sivas, Kayseri, and Şanlıurfa through 112 emergency services and air ambulances.
The Konya City Hospital, inaugurated by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in the year 2020, is gaining widespread recognition through the successful surgeries performed there.
