But now, four years after the accident, he can walk thanks to his treatment in Istanbul Medeniyet University Göztepe Training and Research Hospital. Aziz Mert Yavuz, a university student, has experienced this miracle of only one percent possibility not only through his perseverance, but also thanks to the efforts of the members of our Faculty of Medicine serving in our hospital.
