FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence

Istanbul

With a premises covering 4,500 square meters, “Acıbadem Sports”, the first and only holder of the FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence certificate in Turkey since 2012, is situated in Istanbul and located next to Acıbadem Fulya Hospital.

The centre, led by experts in sports medicine and science offers preventive medicine, diagnosis, treatment and athletic performance-management services in accordance with international standards. The fundamental philosophy of the staff is to use highly developed technology and expertise in the development and implementation of injury-prevention programmes and to educate athletes.

“Acıbadem Sports” is integrated with the adjacent, fully equipped Acıbadem Fulya Hospital which offers expertise in many branches, including sports traumatology, arthroscopic surgery, hand surgery, spinal surgery, foot and ankle surgery, cardiology and cardiovascular surgery, endocrinology, internal medicine, all types of radiology imaging and resources for surgical implementation. Prof. Ömer Faruk Taser, director of our centre, is the Head of Orthopedics at Acıbadem Fulya Hospital as well as Head of the Health Commission of the Turkish Football Federation (TFF).

From the moment of injury until return to play, athletes are assessed by a range of experts in different fields including sports physicians, physiotherapists, sports scientists, S&C coaches, nutritionists, podiatrists and psychologists. All our medical experts collaborate to maximise the success of the healing process and to ensure rapid responses to any health issues that arise. Athletes who return to train and play are assessed through periodic evaluations and load monitoring to minimise reinjury risk. Centre serves many national/international football teams and national associations through the official medical sponsorship of Acıbadem Health Group. Medical sponsorship services include carrying out and authorising pre-participation examination licences of all members from all mentioned associations/teams.

Acıbadem Sports has launched the “International Conference on Football Science (ICOFS)” to create an annual global network for football professionals to share scientific knowledge and expertise. ICOFS 2016 was held on Jan 2016 in Antalya, Turkey with nearly 1,000 attendees and more than 30 speakers from world’s best football teams and organisations.

The centre, together with Acıbadem University has recently started to focus on research on football medicine and science. Acıbadem University already has a faculty of medical sciences and will establish faculty of sports sciences in 2017. Also, in collaboration with the university and the TFF, the centre will start to give certifications for match and performance analysis and athlete monitoring which will be accredited by the Turkish Football Federation.
