My experiences at the 2015 3rd Annual Mediterranean FUE Workshop Istanbul



Staff member
Arriving at the Radisson Blu Istanbul hotel and registration.

Each morning started off with a nice breakfast

Dr Koray Erdogan.

Alex Ginsburg, MD .. Koray Erdogan, MD .. Jose Lorenzo, MD

At the lectures in the morning. The workshop was held over three days. Each day consisted of lectures in the morning at the hotel conference room. Once lectures were over for the day, everyone boarded the coach shuttle buses to the clinic. At the clinic patio, we were served delicious lunches. Then the well organized Live Surgery viewing was held for second half of the day on day one and two.

Waiting for Shuttle to Clinic

My first impression on arriving at Asmed clinic - clean and modern. I was greeted by the staff who were friendly and fluent in English.

Inside the clinic - ultra modern with a very smart look.

I met with Sevinj who coordinated my arrival. She gave me a tour of the clinic, which looked sleek and well maintained. The surgery rooms were equipped with state of the art equipment.

At the Clinic - options to view on screen or go with assigned group to view live surgery. There were approximately 200 doctors and techs in attendance. There were 4 live surgeries to view by the various faculty doctors. Some were using motorized drills whilst others used manual punches.

The groups took turns to watch the various doctors extracting and planting the grafts with their preferred techniques. Overall it was a very well organised workshop, very educational. Feedback from other attendees were also very positive.

I`d like to thank Dr Koray and his team for organising a memorable workshop. Many of us believed that no expense was spared and the attention to detail throughout the workshop was phenomenal!!

It looks very impressive.

How many of the faculty doctors were performing live surgery? Were the patients operated on by single or multiple doctors?


Staff member
There were approximately 6 doctors performing surgery and they rotated so the patients had more than one doctor working on them.
