History of EMOT

The first steps of EMOT were taken in 1986 at the Hand Surgery Center established by Prof. Dr. Arslan Bora, Prof. Dr. Sait Ada and Specialist Pt. Firdevs Kul.


Turkey’s first Hand Microsurgery, Orthopaedics and Traumatology Specialty Hospital

The first replantation in Izmir was performed in 1986 by Prof. Dr. Arslan Bora at SSK Buca Educational Hospital. Under the name of Hand Surgery Group, numerous hand surgeries – microsurgical interventions and rehabilitations – were carried out in either Buca Educational Hospital or private hospitals.


As a result of the increasing number of patients of the center, a set-up similar to that of Indiana Hand Center in the USA was devised and EMOT was opened in 1991 in the Kahramanlar district of Izmir as a 10-bedded hospital with the great devotion and efforts of the partners.

In 1993, Assoc. Prof. Dr. İbrahim Kaplan and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Yalçın Ademoğlu reinforced the hospital by joining the team.

In 1996, EMOT developed into a 62-bedded hospital.


EMOT is Growing

In 1999, the number of operating rooms and beds were increased, and medical staff was strengthened. Thus, EMOT, which physically upsized as well, became the leading emergency center for Microsurgery and Traumatology. With the elective cases, it reached an average number of 3,000 operations and 10,000 outpatients annually. It improved rapidly on the course of becoming the most reliable institution in the region and in the country.


With the addition of EMOT Plus Hospital to EMOT, it has turned into a reference hospital where Musculoskeletal System diseases are diagnosed and treated in every respect under a single roof.
