With a population of more than 70 million, Turkey has a large demand for neurosurgery. Neurosurgery is provided by a socialized health care system partly supported by private institutions. There are more than 1200 neurosurgeons practicing in Turkey, and sophisticated surgical procedures are performed in most large cities. Residency training is provided at universities and training hospitals, and the quality of care is supported by two neurosurgical societies.
