Nikolazi, who is only 7 years old, faced the danger of losing his leg as a result of a traffic accident while on holiday with his family. He came to Yeditepe University Hospital after being told that there was nothing that could be done for treatment in his country and that his leg could be amputated. After the challenging operations and treatment performed by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Uğur Anıl Bingöl, who is Plastic, Reconstructive, Aesthetic Surgery Specialist, his foot and leg recovered.
The summer holiday, which had began extremely enjoyable last August, ended with an unexpected accident for the Edilashvili Family. While Little Nikolazi was walking on the road with his grandmother on an ordinary day, because his family called out to him, Niko suddenly run away from his grandmother and jumped on the road. At that moment, a truck hit Niko and ran over his leg. His mother explains the rest of the incident as follows:
“I can't remember how we reached the accident site as soon as we heard the news. A few minutes lasted as if they were hours. At that time, hundreds of scenarios passed through my mind. Thank God, Niko was alive. But, his leg was in very bad shape. We immediately took him to the hospital. They said that all his foot bones were broken, and there were bruises between his knee and toes. The primary bad news came later. Because they explained that it may be necessary to have his foot amputated. Can you imagine, a 7-year-old boy who has not experienced anything yet could lose his leg. ”
After this news, his father, Iakob Edilashvili, who is the First Vice-President of the Georgian Presidency, was on the quest to recover his son to health. Niko was brought to Yeditepe University Hospital in Turkey about 15 days after the accident.
