Popular Orthopedics Surgeries in Turkey
Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS)
There are numerous minimally invasive techniques. The common thread between all of them is that they use smaller incisions and cause less muscle damage. Minimally invasive techniques can be used for common procedures like lumbar decompression and spinal fusion. Decompression relieves pressure on spinal nerves by removing portions of bone or a herniated disk. Spinal fusion corrects problems with the small bones of the spine (vertebrae). The basic idea is to fuse together the painful vertebrae so that they heal into a single solid bone.
Arthroscopy (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle)
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure orthopaedic surgeons use to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint. In an arthroscopic examination, an orthopaedic surgeon makes a small incision in the patient's skin and then inserts pencil-sized instruments that contain a small lens and lighting system to magnify and illuminate the structures inside the joint. Light is transmitted through fiber optics to the end of the arthroscope that is inserted into the joint.
Generally, orthopedists explore first the non-surgical solutions to orthopedic cases. Hospitals in Turkey offer a wide range of non-surgical and surgical procedures to restore function and allow patients to be active again. However, for those who experience mobility problems due to knee pain, knee replacement surgery or knee arthroplasty may be the most effective medical procedure.
The hip is one of the body's largest joints. It is a ball-and-socket joint. The socket is formed by the acetabulum, which is part of the large pelvis bone. The ball is the femoral head, which is the upper end of the femur (thighbone). In a total hip replacement (also called total hip arthroplasty), the damaged bone and cartilage is removed and replaced with prosthetic components.
Arthroplasty is defined as prosthetic surgery that is applied to advanced calcifications after articular cartilage abrasions. PRP and stem cell injections have been successfully performed in our hospital with joint-preserving surgical treatments (open and closed operations) and joint fluid injection (knee, shoulder, ankle joint, and USG joints) in early stage cartilage erosions. Advanced limb prosthesis operations are performed on arthritis arising after cartilage erosion. Hip, knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle prosthesis operations are performed successfully in our hospital. Prosthetic surgeries are successfully performed for limb arthroplasty of the hip joint due to the protrusion of the hip that develops after the congenital hip protrusion.
All kinds of joint and bone fracture dislocation operations following injury such as accident, falling, hips fractures seen in older ages, are successfully treated with closed and open operations. The operations of elderly patients, multislip trauma patients with multiple bone fractures and patients with pelvic fractures requiring pelvic surgery are performed successfully by our orthopedics and traumatology team, especially in intensive care units.
Shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle injuries that occur after sports injuries are treated. Cartilage injuries in the knee, anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments and internal and external meniscus tears, cartilage injuries, recurrent shoulder dislocations, shoulder, knee, elbow and ankle pain are treated with closed and open surgeries. In our hospital, all kinds of open and closed joints are treated by our orthopedic physicians.
Children with congenital and post-emergent orthopedic disorders (congenital hip dislocation, cerebral palsy operations, congenital crooked feet, childhood fractures) are treated successfully.
