Frequently asked Questions

In this section, we have compiled the frequently asked questions…

Closed surgery is surgery performed by piercing the skin without opening the skin. By using a 5 mm endoscope, the disc is directly accessed and the hernia is removed without damaging any anatomical structure. This surgery, which provides great comfort to the patient, can also be performed under local anesthesia. Since the skin is not cut, the bleeding should not be more than a teaspoon.

– Frozen shoulder is a disease that occurs after a serious injury. It causes pain and limitation of movement. Therefore, you may experience great difficulties while doing your daily work.

– With arthroscopy, we separate the existing adherent tissues, then repair the injured and poorly healed tissues, and provide the patient with a frictionless slippery joint.

– After the operation, physical therapy is applied to the patient, and the mobility of the shoulder is regained. The aim of modern orthopedic surgery is to give weight to the patient and to provide joint movement. We work in close contact with physical therapy doctors and we rehabilitate and the patient recovers quickly.

– If you have pain when raising your arm, if you have shoulder pain that wakes you up at night, it is likely that you have a tear in your rotator cuff tendons.

Shoulder Rotator Muscle Tear is removed by closed surgery, arthroscopy. In tears that occur after shoulder compression, first of all, the leveling of the sharp bone ends that cause the muscle tear, which we call acromioplasty, is applied. Subsequently, the tear is renewed and the rupture area is reattached to the bone and the suture is completed.

Wrist arthroscopy has become the “gold standard” for both diagnosis and treatment in cases of non-healing pain, limitation of movement and loss of function, whether due to fracture or strain.

With wrist arthroscopy, the cartilage surface can be corrected today, free fragments can be removed and snags can be removed. Most of today’s arthroscopic repair materials can be used on the wrist. Ligament structures can be repaired, torn structures can be removed.

plica; Knee sprain can be injured during heavy loads such as excessive climbing stairs, squatting, running, cycling. After the injury, the knee swells, there is pain for a while.

Patients with plica syndrome feel pain when climbing stairs, cannot sit for a long time with their knees bent, and want to stretch their legs in places such as cinemas or restaurants. It is typical for them to limp out of the vehicle when they drive for a long time, sitting cross-legged is painful.

The best diagnosis can be made during the examination. In case of delay, deep cartilage losses and permanent disability as a result of abrasions on the articular cartilage surfaces are inevitable.

Plika sendromu tedavisi artroskopik yöntemlerle mümkündür. Mümkünse tamamı çıkarılacak şekilde diğer anatomik yapılara zarar vermeden, radyofrekans gibi kanamaya çok az neden olan cihazlar kullanılarak yapılabilmektedir.

Apart from neck pain, there may be symptoms of pain radiating to the shoulders, back and arms, numbness, loss of sensation, decreased reflexes in the arms and loss of strength.

In the treatment of hernia, the patient’s complaints mostly disappear with rest, medication and physiotherapy. First, rest and medication are given. Surgical treatment is planned in cases of numbness that does not decrease with treatment, recurrent neck pain, need for rest that affects daily life, pain and loss of strength, sudden complete loss of strength and paralysis.

Knee Replacement Surgery, in short, is the replacement of the joint surface.

It can be applied to people who have completely lost their joint surface, who have painful joints (knee pain), whose movements are restricted to a certain level. There is no age limit, it can be applied to anyone with these complaints. If the movement is completely restricted, it is necessary to apply a special hinged prosthesis.

The priformis muscle is the weakest of the external rotators of the hip. However, since it is activated especially during hip flexion, it can be easily injured by encountering greater loads than other muscles. Priformis injury may produce typical sciatic nerve syndrome (loss of strength in low toe and toe elevation) in the acute phase. This situation is temporary.

When the priformis edema decreases and the pressure disappears, it can disappear after 2-3 weeks of rest. In chronic cases, the piriformis is hardened and thickened. By pressing on the sciatic nerve, which passes just below it, this time it causes pain that does not decrease at rest.

Diagnosis is difficult, pressure may not be revealed with MRI. EMG can also be confused with root compression, and even lumbar hernia surgery can be performed if present. Most patients talk about sciatic pain that does not subside despite previous lumbar hernia surgery. In this case, the piriformis should be loosened and the sciatica trapped in the canal should be relieved. The patient’s complaints decrease and the nerve begins to repair itself.

Although surgical treatment is mostly open surgery, we perform the procedure with endoscopy through a 1 cm hole.

Percutaneous endoscopic piriformis release is performed under local anesthesia operating room conditions.

Trigger Finger got this name because of the finger beating like a trigger with the canal narrowing that occurs after the finger tendons enter a pulley system after the palm level. Generally, the problem is the thickening of the beam. The reason for its occurrence is generally that injury occurs in the beam during strain and this injury causes the beam to thicken as it heals. Trigger finger injuries can be seen in the thumb and other fingers.

Surgery can be performed in patients who do not respond to drug therapy and physical therapy.

The pulley is loosened by making an incision not exceeding 1 cm. It is an operation performed under local anesthesia.
