Arthroscopic surgery

Arthroscopy is a method that enables the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and injuries occurring within the joint by visual inspection of the joints using fiberoptic devices. Arthroscopy is done with a few minor skin incisions and causes a very small scar and pain, but a rapid recovery is observed compared to open surgery. The operation takes approximately 1 hour and the patient is discharged a few hours after the operation. The patient can step on his foot after the operation and drive the car 3 days later. It does not need to be removed as the stitch is thrown with fusible material. In a wide range from professional athletes to housewives; Knee-shoulder-hand and ankle arthroscopy, ligament-cartilage-meniscus-tendon operations, cartilage transplants are successfully performed using modern surgical techniques.

Lengthening and Leg Inequalities

Functional disorders caused by crooked legs, inequality between the legs, short stature are orthopedic problems that can be treated with the Ilizarov method today. Thanks to this method, which has been applied successfully Orthopedics and Traumatology Departments, the length difference in the legs; shortness compensation can be equalized by shortening the long leg and lengthening the short leg. Ilizarav method is also successfully applied in the treatment of soft tissue loss, curvatures and shortness caused by non-union in bone fractures.

Hand surgery and microsurgery

Thanks to the microsurgical technique, vessels and nerves smaller than 1mm in diameter can be operated using needles and threads that are hard to see with the naked eye. So; Organs such as broken hands, arms, feet, legs can be replaced and repair of very thin nerve fibers can make the attached limb feel and move again.

Knee Surgery And Arthroscopic Surgery

The knees are exposed to the highest load compared to other joints. Failure to prepare before starting sports and excessively straining the knees during sports lead to damage to cartilage tissue, tearing in the menus, rupture of the ligaments and impair knee health. Injuries of structures such as meniscus, anterior cruciate ligament, articular cartilage, capsule in the knee joint, intra-articular inflammation called septic arthritis, synovitis, namely thickening of the articular membrane, moderate knee joint calcification, intraarticular fractures are treated with arthroscopic surgery.
