The “TİKA Operating Room” Was Established within the Surgical Clinic in Serbia

Within the Surgical Clinic of KBC Zvezdara Nikola Spasić, located in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, an operating room was established by Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA).

The Surgical Clinic of KBC Zvezdara Nikola Spasić, which has been operating in Belgrade since 1935, carries out over 30,000 operations a year in the branches of general surgery, respiratory, stomach, cardiovascular, emergencies, orthopedics, and urology. The clinic, where approximately 300,000 patients are treated annually, also serves as the Training Clinic of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Belgrade, where medical students receive practical training as well.

Since the existing equipment in the clinic was outdated and did not meet the general surgery standards, by providing a mobile operating table, an operating light, an electrosurgical unit and a mobile surgical aspirator device, an operating room was established by TİKA to ensure that surgeries for citizens, especially those requiring operations, are carried out more effectively and efficiently.

Türkiye’s experience on healthcare is being shared with the world

During his speech at the opening ceremony of the operating room, the hospital’s director, Prof. Dr. Petar Svorcan, stated that the equipment provided by TİKA will both facilitate the personnel’s work and enhance the patients’ well-being. Speaking at the opening ceremony of the operating room, the Head of the Department of the Balkans and Eastern Europe at TİKA, Muhammed Ünal, expressed that our country has significant experience in the field of healthcare, and TİKA has implemented projects to share this experience with other countries.
