Sadettin Karacagil

M.D., PhD

1957 yılında Ankara'da doğdu. 1981 yılında Ankara Universitesi Tıp Fakültesini ve 1986 yılında da aynı fakültenin Genel Cerrahı Bilim Dalında genel cerrahi uzmanlığını tamamladı. 1984-85 yıllarında Londra Charing Cross hastanesi damar cerrahi bölümünde ”vascular fellow” olarak çalıştı. 1986 yılından 2001 yılına kadar İsveç’te Uppsala Üniversitesi hastanesi damar cerrahi ünitesinde damar cerrahı olarak çalıstı. Bu hastanede 1990 yılında PhD tezini başarı ile verip 1992 yılındada Doçent oldu. Aynı üniversite hastanesinde 5 PhD talebesine supervizörlük yaptı. 2001 yılında Västerås Merkez hastanesine geçerek, İsveç’in ilk bağımsız Damar Cerrahi Departmanını kurdu ve 2006 yılına kadar bu departmanın şefliğini üstlendi. Son 25 yılda sadece damar cerrahı olarak çalıştığı için her türlü damar hastalıklarının tanı ve tedavisinde çok geniş tecrübe kazandı. Son 16 yıl içinde damar ultrasonu konusunda 40.000 den fazla vakada geniş tecrübe kazanarak dünyanın bu konuda en önde gelen experleri arasına girdi. Kalp dışı damar sertliğinin ve anevrizma hastalıklarının tanı ve tedavisinin dışında varis hastalıklarının tanı ve tedavisinde de İsveç’in en önde gelen isimlerinden olan Dr. Karacagil’in 80'in uzerinde tanınmış uluslararası dergilerde yayını bulunmaktadır. Avrupa Damar Cerrahisi dergisinin editörler kurulunda da bulunmuş olan Dr. Karacagil, halen İsveç’te devam etmekte olan bir çok arastırmayı Västerås Klinik Araştırma Merkezinde ziyaretci Profesör olarak yürütmektedir. Ocak 2006 da Istanbul Cerrahi Hastanesinde çalışmaya baslayan Dr. Karacagil, bu hastanede damar cerrahisi ve varis merkezini kurmuştur. Kasım 2011 yılında bu hastaneden ayrılarak özel olarak çalışmaya başladı. Perifer damarların ultrasonla taranması, boyun damarlarının cerrahisi, karın içi aort cerrahisi, böbrek ve bacak damarlarının cerrahisi ve varis hastalıklarının minimal invaziv tedavisi özel ilgi alanlarıdır.
