What is Orthopedics and Traumatology?

Orthopedic surgery is concerned with conditions involving the musculo-skeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical procedures to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. Our orthopedics department uses multidisciplinary approach to provide a complete range of services for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with orthopedic conditions.

Our orthopedic surgeons who are among the Turkey’s most successful orthopedic surgeons and perform hundreds of procedures every year. Our highly trained orthopedic surgeons are specialized and experienced in all the latest musculoskeletal surgical and non-surgical options in every orthopedics subspecialty – including bones, joints (total knee and hip replacements), ligament, tendons, muscles, and nerves.They equipped with state of art equipment to provide patients with the most modern care.

During the consultation to determine the most appropriate surgical options for the patient’s individual situation, our surgeon provides the information about the planned operation and post-operative care and the recovery process. Recovery time of orthopedic surgery can vary greatly, and depends on the type of operation.

Total Joint Hip Replacement Surgery

Also known as the hip arthroplasty, total hip replacement (THR) is a relatively common surgical procedure which rebuilds a deteriorated hip joint. Hip replacements are most commonly needed due to extreme arthritis in the hip joint, a condition which is often the result of natural aging, severe trauma to the hip joint or a congenital deformity of the hip joint.

Hip replacement involves the removal of arthritic bone ends and damaged cartilage and replacing them with prosthetic implants that replicate the hip joint. Hip replacement can help relieve pain and get you back to enjoying normal, everyday activities.

Most patients will be able to leave hospital 4 to 10 days after the procedure.

Total Joint Knee Replacement Surgery

Also known as total knee arthroplasty, knee replacement surgery is used to restore the function of diseased knee joints and relieve the pain associated with them. Knee replacement is a surgical procedure in which a diseased or damaged joint is replaced with an artificial joint called prosthesis. During the operation, the surgeon removes the damaged bone and cartilage from the affected area and replaces it with an artificial joint constructed from high-tech metal alloys and polymers. Knee replacement is one of the safest and most successful types of major surgery. A few days after surgery, most patients can return home.

Arthroscopic Surgery (Shoulders, Knees and Ankles)

Arthroscopic Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used for the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting joints. The whole procedure takes around 2 hours and leaves virtually no scarring. This is an outpatient procedure, patients can go home about 2 hours after the surgery. The recovery period from arthroscopic surgeries is much shorter than traditional open surgeries.

Rotator Cuff Repair

The shoulder can often become dislocated or slip partially out of the joint, a condition known as subluxation. This often develops as a result of a traumatic injury. Procedure performed under general anesthesia and aim to reattach the tendon back to the arm, along with removing any loose fragments from the shoulder area.
