Orthopedics and Traumatology unit working on musculoskeletal diseases. It deals with major areas such as arms, legs, pelvis area, spine and bone, muscle, vessel, nerve, spinal cord connections. The Orthopedics and Traumatology unit, which works in coordination with other units such as Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, operates in a wide range of areas from hand surgery to prosthetic procedures. The procedures performed in the Orthopedics and Traumatology unit are as follows:
Spinal Surgery (Spine Diseases and Surgery): The most common spinal curvatures and fractures are the main treatment areas. Diagnosis and treatment of congenital or acquired scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, Schuermann's kyphosis, spinal injuries, dislocations and spinal infections in the spine are performed.
Knee Surgery: The incidence of problems is higher in the knee, which is exposed to the highest load compared to other joints. Especially not warming up before starting sports and forcing the knees excessively can cause damage to the cartilage tissue in this area, rupture of the ligaments or tear in the meniscus, which may impair the health of the knee. Injuries of areas such as the meniscus, articular cartilage, anterior cruciate ligament and capsule that occur in the knee joint, septic arthritis (intra-articular inflammation), synovitis (thickening of the joint membrane), calcification of the knee joint and fractures occurring in the joint are treated with arthroscopic surgery.
Ankle Surgery: In the area called talus dome, diseases such as compression of the distal end anterior of the tibia, osteochondral damage, FHL tenosynovitis are treated. In ankle operations performed with the arthroscopy method, using fiberoptic instruments, the inside of the joint is visually examined, and the diagnosis of the diseases and injuries can be easily detected. A few small skin incisions are made with arthroscopy. This scar, which is very small, heals much faster than open surgery. The operation takes an average of 1 hour and the patient is discharged in a short time. You can step on your feet or even drive a few days after the surgery.
Shoulder Surgery: Problems such as SLAP lesion (biceps tendon damage), frozen shoulder, impingement (pain caused by bone elongation), shoulder joint dislocation, tennis elbow and radial head dislocation are treated with closed or open surgical operations.
Leg Inequalities and Lengthening Treatment: Uneven height problem in the legs or crooked legs are orthopedic problems that can be treated with the Ilizarov method. It can be equated with shortening the long leg or lengthening the short leg with the Ilirazov method.
