The orthopedics and traumatology department provides services for the treatment of congenital or existing diseases in the musculoskeletal systems of the human body. We apply treatment methods for orthopedic diseases in cooperation with our doctors from other branches in our medical center, and provide solutions to patients with medical treatment and/or surgical treatment methods when necessary. Our patients, who receive orthopedic health services from Özkaya Medical Center, are examined by our expert orthopedists and are restored to their health with state-of-the-art methods.
Orthopedics and traumatology clinics offer solutions for different orthopedic diseases. The treatment of congenital orthopedic diseases is carried out at Özkaya Medical Center, as is the solution of orthopedic problems that develop due to the factor of aging or after trauma. Health problems that are generally treated in the orthopedics and traumatology department are as follows:
Arthroscopic surgery is a method that is used to visually examine the interior of the joint by using fiber optic devices and to diagnose and treat injuries and diseases in the inner parts of the joint. In the arthroscopy procedure performed by our orthopedics and traumatology doctors, a few small incisions are made on the skin of the patients first. In this method, which causes a low pain sensation and scarring, a better and more rapid improvement is observed than in open surgery.
Arthroscopic surgical procedures generally take about an hour and patients are discharged on the same day after the procedure. After this procedure performed by our specialist orthopedists, our patients are able to get on their feet and continue their daily lives after three days.
In arthroscopic surgical procedures performed by our expert orthopedists at Özkaya Medical Center, dissolving sutures are placed on the patients. Therefore, there is no such thing as suture removal. This operation is often performed on professional athletes when necessary, but everyone can benefit from this surgical method. Knee, hand, shoulder, ankle arthroscopies, which fall under the scope of orthopedics and traumatology are carried out in a healthy way in our medical center.
Sports traumatology is a field of medicine in which injuries that occur during sports are dealt with and treated. Sports-related injuries can be detected and treated by our orthopedists, who are experts in sports traumatology. Our orthopedics and traumatology specialists working at Özkaya Medical Center offer the most effective treatment options and plan the treatment process for their patients who come with injury complaints.
Sports is an activity that increases the body’s resistance, but before starting to do sports, the body needs to be prepared for it and warmed up. Beginning a sports activity without warming up the body can sometimes lead to sports injuries. At this point, the necessary treatment methods in the field of sports traumatology are applied to our patients.
Usually if beginning a sports activity without warming up, the knee joint is the most affected and injured location. In addition to the knee joint, injuries can occur in the hip, groin, ankle, elbow and wrist. In this case, all sports-related injuries are handled and treated in sports traumatology within the extent of orthopedics and traumatology.
Conditions such as limb length inequality, bow legs and knock knees are set and treated by our orthopedists serving at Özkaya Medical Center. In addition, we offer solutions to problems caused by congenital characteristics such as short stature, accompanied by necessary surgical interventions in our medical center.
Microsurgery is an advanced surgical technique and is frequently used by orthopedists today. Ozkaya Medical Center orthopedists recommend the application of microsurgery methods to our patients when necessary. Because with this method, it is possible to repair nerve fibers that are quite thin. Vascular and nerve surgeries can be performed easily with this technique by our orthopedic and traumatology specialist doctors. Microsurgery method is frequently used in cases such as acute soft tissue traumas, hand, arm, leg, finger rupture, and the damaged organs are restored to their former health. In such health problems, microsurgical methods are used to ensure that there are no movement restrictions and that the organs survive and can fulfill their functions.
Knee surgery services are provided by Özkaya Medical Center to our patients who have various knee joint problems. After the necessary examinations are carried out by our specialist orthopedists, imaging techniques are used and the necessary treatment is started. Knee surgery, which is one of the most intensive areas of the orthopedics and traumatology department, is generally applied due to sports injuries. Because during sports, meniscus tearing may occur due to various reasons, cartilage tissue may be damaged, and ligaments may rupture.
Apart from all these situations, knee surgery is supported in cases of moderate calcification of the knee joints, thickening of the joint membrane, and intra-articular inflammation. Our orthopedists perform interventions for our patients who apply to our medical center due to these problems and initiate treatment with arthroscopic surgery.
Our orthopedics and traumatology department mostly supports our patients who have suffered damage due to an accident, namely trauma. With orthopedic disorders that develop as a result of trauma, modern and useful techniques that give the fastest and best results are used in our medical center and our patients are restored to their health. In general, the methods we apply in health care services applied as a result of trauma are functional fixation technique, prosthetic surgery, bone stimulators, Arthroscopic operations and radical major surgical procedures. In orthopedic problems caused by trauma, methods that do not require surgery are applied first by our orthopedists. In this context, functional fixation technique, which is less rigid and does not interfere with the performance of muscle functions, is used instead of hard plastering.
