Prof. İnan and his colleaque Associate Prof. İlker Sarıkaya emphasizes the relation in between selection of the right surgical approach according to the diagnosis and the success of the surgery. Dr. Sarıkaya states that there many different techniques in surgery but underlines the importance of “deciding on the optimum surgery technique” and explains why this decision should be given by a “well-experienced” and “specialized” surgeon.
