Orthopedics and Traumatology Department- Diagnosis and Treatment Services
We usually encounter trauma by surprise due to incidents such as accidental falls, sports injuries, work-related accidents or traffic accidents. The damage incurred may vary, depending on the severity of the trauma, from simple soft tissue injuries to segmental fractures in major bones.
Treating a patient who has sustained heavy traumatic injuries requires the right equipment, a well-established organization and teamwork.
Trauma centers must always be ready to receive critically injured patients at any time.
Artroscopy and Sports Injuries (Knee-Shoulder)
Menisectomy or meniscus repair; reconstruction of arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament , posterior cruciate ligament, medial and lateral collateral ligament and combined ligament injuries; microfracture or osteochondral cartilage transplantation in cartilage injuries; arthroscopic bankart repair subacromial impingement syndrome, shoulder joint osteoarthritis, labral tear excision-repair, cartilage operations and rotator cuff repair in shoulder dislocations include within arthroscopic knee operations.
Conditions addressed by Spinal Surgery include congenital or acquired spinal deformities such as scoliosis, kyphosis (also known as a round back or hunchback), Scheuermann's kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, spinal degeneration due to aging, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoporosis (bone loss), bone fractures, dislocations, spinal injuries and spinal infections.
Pediatric Orthopedics and Traumatology
This unit addresses follow-up and treatment of conditions such as congenital hip dislocation, pes equinovarus (clubfoot), cerebral paralysis, myelomeningocele, congenital deformities, pes planus (flat feet), tumors, developmental disorders and bone fractures of children under the age of 16.
Foot and Foot Ankle Surgery
This unit addresses treatment of conditions such as degenerative diseases, sports injuries, bone fractures, ligament raptures and cartilage injuries of the foot and foot ankle.
This unit addresses medical and surgical treatment of all tumors of the extremities, particularly, muscles and soft tissues.
Shoulder and Elbow Surgery
It provides arthroscopic and open surgery surgical treatment for conditions such as arthrosis of the shoulder and elbow, rotator cuff disease, and diseases associated with overuse or trauma.
It provides treatment for gonarthrosis and coxarthrosis, hip-knee prostheses, revision operations in infection and loosening of prostheses, oeriacetabular and high tibial reconstructive osteotomy.
It deals particularly with arm and leg bone lengthening operations, bone deformities, bone non-union, bone infections and external fixation implementations.
They are among medical conditions which particularly occur after traumas experienced by senior patients, and which require treatment.
Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery
It addresses diagnosis as well as planning and implementation of treatment for patients who experience problems with their hands, wrists, elbows and arms.
Clinical activities of the Upper Extremity Surgery include intensive assessment, coordination, diagnosis and treatment of acute soft tissue traumas of the upper extremities (tendon cuts, peripheral nerve cuts, skin and muscle tissue losses due to crushing or compression, etc.), amputations (replantation, revascularization, etc. performed by using microsurgical techniques), and bone fractures of the hands, wrists, forearms, elbows and arms.
Upper Extremity Surgery
This unit undertakes arthroscopic surgeries of the wrist-elbow for late reconstruction of neuromuscular diseases due to trauma or calcifications, and treatment of tumoral states, small joint prosthesis, tendon transfers and microsurgical tissue transfers.
