Ass. Prof. Fatih ARSLANOGLU

Orthopedics and Traumatology


In 2010, I graduated from Istanbul University Istanbul Faculty of Medicine, which is the oldest and best medical faculty in Turkey. I completed my specialization education in Istanbul Baltalimani Bone Diseases Training and Research Hospital, which is the only specific center in Turkey in the field of orthopaedics and traumatology. In this hospital, at the establishment I was one the founding member team of Baltalimanı Hand Surgery Clinic, which is Turkey’s first-hand surgery orthopaedics sub-branch clinic. Between 2013 and 2016, I worked as a chief assistant in hand surgery and foot and ankle surgery clinics. I improved myself by taking training from Prof. Dr. Tuna Özyürekoğlu from the USA Kleinert Kutz hand surgery clinic. I worked in the field of microsurgery and lower extremity reconstructive surgery at the Plastic Surgery and Reconstruction Clinic of Bezmialem University. In 2017, I successfully passed the Turkish and European orthopaedic board exams.

In 2017, I worked as the clinic chief of the traumatology department at the Diyarbakir military hospital for 1 year and improved myself in the field of war surgery. In 2018, I worked as a faculty member at Medipol Mega University Hospital. During this period, I successfully operated on many Libyan war-wounded patients. I improved myself by getting training in paediatric orthopaedics and deformity surgery from Prof.Dr.Michael Weber from the American Wellness Center. In 2021, I founded the NZM International Orthopaedics Team. NZM International team, which consists of physicians specialized in 9 specific branches of orthopaedics, became one of the largest and strongest teams in Istanbul within 1 year. We operate on more than 200 domestic and foreign patients per month in 3 different cities in Turkey. We are the private team that performs the most major replacement and

finger replantation in Istanbul. NZM International; It is one of the teams that perform the most surgeries in special fields such as cosmetic limb lengthening , sports surgery, deformity surgery, osteomyelitis, diabetic foot, paediatric orthopaedics, robotic knee prosthesis, cerebral palsy, congenital anomalies, war-wounded, orthopaedic oncology and spine surgery. Our team also sees patients and performs surgeries in many countries abroad. We have state-level agreements with Uzbekistan.
