About Me

He is experienced in performing minimally invasive procedures, including laparoscopic surgery and hysteroscopic surgeries for reproductive organ issues.

In research, Dr. Cakmak develops better strategies for treating infertility, particularly by improving ovarian stimulation protocols and embryo selection techniques. He also investigates the molecular causes of implantation failures and miscarriages.
