Orhan YÜCEL, M.D. Associate Professor of Thoracic Surgery

I was born in Ankara in 1970. After graduation from medical faculty, I worked for the Health Ministry as a general practitioner. Then, I applied for the military doctor occupations of the Turkish Armed Forces. Since then I served as a first lieutenant field general practitioner for 3 years in several battalions. At the end of this period, I passed the qualification examinations for the education period of the thoracic surgery clinic at GMMA. Since 2013 I have been an associated professor.

I have to deal with lung transplantation, all blunt chest traumas, gunshot injuries, chest wall reconstruction surgery, lung cancer surgery, etc. except lung transplantations.

Besides these, I am interested in and have experimental studies especially about lung transplantation, reexpansion pulmonary edema and antioxidant therapy on these cases, chemical warfare agent damage combined with blunt chest trauma which simulates war field, and lung transplantation surgery.


I am interested in the subjects such as ischemia-reperfusion, graft failure and opportunistic infections on lung transplant recipients
