Surgeries that enter the joints through 0.5 cm incisions and use special tools are called Arthroscopic Surgery. Arthroscopic surgery is most commonly performed on the knee joint. In recent years, it has been widely used in hip joint pathologies, hindfoot surgery, and various diseases and injuries of the shoulder joint. When performing arthroscopic surgery, tissue damage is minimal and recovery occurs very quickly.
Our Orthopedics and Traumatology Center has specialist doctors who can perform all kinds of interventions, especially in knee and hip prosthesis surgery. Our center carries out its practices by closely following orthopedic developments in the world. We use today's cutting-edge technology in the field of sports injuries at our center. Ligament injuries, meniscus tears, shoulder and ankle traumas are treated by specialist doctors. With advanced techniques, much better results are obtained with post-surgical pain control and patient rehabilitation.
Knee and Joint Prosthesis
The knee joint consists of the thigh, shin and kneecap bones. The ends of these bones are covered with cartilage tissue, and in the disease called arthritis, the cartilage tissue deteriorates. It becomes unable to function. After a while, it disappears completely and the bones rub on each other during knee movement and the bone tissue gradually changes shape, causing restriction of joint movements and severe pain.
Hip Joint Prosthesis
A painful and stiff hip can affect even your simple daily movements. Over the years, pain at rest can disrupt your sleep patterns and therefore your mental structure. However, with the operation, it is possible for your painful and restricted hip to return to its normal state. This operation is the process of replacing the damaged joint surfaces with a material called total hip prosthesis, which is made of special materials that will perform the same function.
Hip calcification is a disease that manifests itself with hip pain around the age of 50. The reason is not clear. It can occur at a much earlier age in people with congenital hip dislocation or hip development disorder. Fatigue pains are observed in the early stages of the disease. Later, the pain begins to be felt while sitting or lying down. Joint movements become limited day by day and patients begin to have difficulty reaching their feet. Walking distance becomes shorter.
Ankle surgery covers diseases such as heel fractures, flat feet, hallux valgus, and Morton's neuroma. Surgical procedures are completed with a very high rate of success by expert orthopedic doctors.
With each forward step, the foot flexes from the heel to the front and supports the springing movement of the body. It is the curve on the inside of the foot that enables this movement. The absence or insufficiency of this curve flat feet It is called.
Our big toe, which normally should remain straight and parallel to the axis of the foot, changes direction and turns towards the second toe, in other words, towards the outside of the foot, in Hallux Valgus. In this case, a swelling occurs slightly above our big toe.
Morton's neuroma is a painful disease that occurs in the front part of the foot. Pain that often occurs as a result of compression and thickening of the nerve between the 3rd and 4th metatarsal bones is called Morton's neuroma. It is 8-10 times more common in women than in men.
Scoliosis surgery is the operation of aligning the bent vertebrae properly and fusing them together. After the union, it can move like a single bone (vertebra) in the area. Generally, curvatures over 45-50 degrees continue to progress even after puberty ends and growth is completed.
A herniated disc occurs due to damage to the disc joints between the vertebrae in our lumbar region over time. The decrease in the fluid that allows movement of the vertebrae, which decreases as we get older, brings about the problem of hernia.
Kyphosis occurs with hunchback and backward curvature of the spine. When viewed from the side, the spine appears to be naturally curved forward around the fifth, sixth and seventh dorsal vertebrae located behind the chest.
spinal cord diseases
The spinal cord provides communication between the peripheral nervous system and the brain, transmits the commands transmitted from the brain to the muscles and endocrine glands, continuous movements are first controlled by the brain, and then the spinal cord takes over this task.
