Orthopedics and Traumatology

The Department of Orthopedic Traumatology, which is one of the very wide sections of medicine, has many special branches in its own. Each of these branches requires separate features, techniques and experiences. In Gazi Hospital, orthopedics and traumatology department are built on the basis of these thoughts.

Orthopedics And Traumatology

Sports injuries, work accidents or traffic accidents

Trauma; mostly surprises us occurring with falls, sports injuries, work accidents or traffic accidents. Depending on the severity of the trauma, damage can range from simple soft tissue contusions to fragmented fractures in large bones. Treating a severely traumatized patient requires good equipment, serious organization and team work. The trauma center needs to be ready at all times as it is not known when the trauma patient will arrive. Gazi Hospital has at least one orthopedic and traumatology specialist for this purpose for 24 hours. After the trauma patient is accepted and the first intervention is performed by this specialist, radical treatment is performed by the orthopedic trauma subspecialist as soon as possible.

Approaches and surgical methods in the treatment of fractures are constantly being renewed. In parallel with technological developments, better, more modern and more harmless treatment methods and equipments are being developed. The aim is to return the patient to daily life as soon as possible without any problems.

In the department;

Arthroscopy and Sports Injuries (Knee-shoulder); Arthroscopic knee surgeries; meniscectomy or meniscus repair, Arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, internal-external side ligament and combined ligament injuries reconstruction surgeries, arthroscopic microfracture or osteochondral cartilage transplantation in cartilage injuries; arthroscopic bankart repair in shoulder extrusion; subacromial impingement syndrome, shoulder joint osteoarthritis, labral tear excision-repair, cartilage surgeries, rotator cuff repair are done with arthroscopic closed methods and the patients return to work and sportive life in a short time.

Spine Surgery (Spinal surgery) Lateral bending of spine that is congenital or acquired (scoliosis), bending forward or kyphosis (humping) and Schuermann kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, degenerative (calcification) problems due to aging of the spine, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoporosis-related humping and fractures and their treatment with vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, vertebral fractures and dislocations resulting from accidental injuries to the spine, infections of the spine of all kinds, tumors of spine, and their treatment. The team that has surgeries and interventions entered the textbooks in international magazines and books with the highest knowledge and experience at international level in the treatment of all these subjects. In this area, the most complicated anterior and posterior surgeries, instrumentations, disc prostheses, etc. applications.
