Last year, travel of a patient from Ankara to Batman was considered to be a story. However, travelling from Batman to Eskisehir is more difficult in my estimation. In the last 3 months, many of my patients came from the Southeast for surgery. Uncle Serdin came yesterday. He had surgery hurriedly in the afternoon. We placed 8 screws and 2 cages into his lower back. We switched off the pacemaker before surgery, and then we switched on it again. We had a walk the next morning.
