Author: Prof. N. Reha Tandoğan, MD Total Knee Replacement is a very successful operation if performed properly. However, you should remember that the recovery period is long and the progress is gradual. Here are a few things you should know about your recovery. Pain and stiffness Your knee will feel slightly warm and stiff, especially in the mornings up to 6 months. Cold packs are helpful for the pain in the first 3 weeks. Your surgeon will prescribe a set of different painkillers (called multi-modal analgesia) to control your pain. A moderate amount of pain, especially at night is expected in the first month, but will get better gradually. Depending on your pain threshold, you might need regular pain medications up to 2 months after surgery. A small amount of swelling in the operated leg is expected in the first few days, this should resolve with placing a pillow […]
Author: Dr. Tuna PEHLIVANOGLU, M.D. Vertebral Body Tethering is a new, revolutionary treatment method for scoliosis. By using this method, we can avoid the traditional fusion surgery, which is stopping the remaining growth of patient, so that the entire motion capacity of the spine is lost and a motionless, length-fixed spine is created. As a result of vertebral body tethering however, the spinal column continues to grow, and this growth potential combined with the implants is yielding a gradual, very successful correction of the scoliosis. This is why vertebral body tethering is classified as a growth modulating treatment option. a:Pre-op, b:Post-op 1st Year c:Post-op 3rd year In addition to growth preservation, this method also preserves the motion of the entire spinal column, including the instrumented segments. Therefore, patients can move freely after surgery, which is impossible if traditional fusion surgery is undertaken. This method is also applied to professional […]
Author: Prof. Reha Tandogan, M.D. Partial (unicondylar) knee replacement is a surgical treatment for patients who have end stage cartilage damage confined to a single compartment of the knee. Your surgeon resurfaces only the damaged parts of the knee joint while preserving your ligaments, cartilage and menisci in the uninvolved part. Is partial knee replacement suitable for me ? This surgery is for patients over 50 years of age, when other joint preservation techniques such as osteotomies and cartilage regeneration are not feasible. Mostly performed for osteoarthritis (cartilage wear), partial knee replacements are also an excellent choice for osteonecrosis of the knee (bone infarct and collapse of a part of knee). (Figure 1) Your surgeon evaluates your X-rays and MRI’s to see if this surgery is suitable for you. If you elect to undergo robotic surgery, computed tomography (CT) scan of the whole limb is also necessary for the […]
Arthroscopy is a closed surgery method used in the treatment of joint problems, which does not require to make large incisions, and allows the diagnosis and treatment of the joint by camera imaging. Arthroscopy, which is the most commonly used treatment method in the orthopedic field, is based on the principle of sending camera and auxiliary treatment tools through holes of approximately 0.5 cm and monitoring the damaged area from an external monitor. The images taken with the tiny camera can be enlarged to see the inside of the joint to the finest detail. Arthroscopy can be used in all joints. The most commonly used one is knee arthroscopy. Shoulder arthroscopy is the second. Hip arthroscopy, ankle arthroscopy, and elbow arthroscopy are also preferred methods. Arthroscopy could not be done very frequently in the past because of the problem of vascular and neural networks in the elbow area and problems in the […]
Arthroscopy is a closed surgery method that allows diagnosis and treatment by means of a high-resolution camera and monitor system, which can be entered through small holes of 0.5 cm instead of making large incisions. As in open surgery, large incisions are not opened and the damaged area is not looked at with the naked eye and intervened. Camera and special instruments are inserted through small openings to help the treatment and monitor the operation area. It has many advantages such as the comfort it gives to the patient and the surgeon during the operation and also to the possibility of rapid recovery after the operation. Arthroscopy can be preferred for knee, shoulder, wrist, ankle and hip joints. However, unlike other joints, hip arthroscopy is technically more difficult and requires experience because the joint is deeper, the joint capsule is thick and the range of motion is limited. Hip Osteoarthritis and […]
Arthroscopy is a closed operation method where both imaging and treatment are performed through approximately 0.5 cm holes. Instead of making large incisions, like in open surgery, the procedure is performed through several small holes. A special, high-quality fiberoptic camera is inserted through one hole, and the other hole is used to insert arthroscopy-specific mini-size repair tools. The surgeon performs the treatment by viewing the area on the opposite high-resolution monitor. The biggest advantage of arthroscopy is the rapid and comfortable postoperative process. The small incision is effective in this process. On the other hand, it provides both patient and surgeon comfort and extra security during surgery. Arthroscopy is frequently used for knee, shoulder, hip and ankle diseases. You can read our articles about knee arthroscopy, hip arthroscopy and shoulder arthroscopy for information about other methods. As the ankle is a small joint, ankle arthroscopy requires special experience. The joint size is increased using pressurized fluid to […]
Arthroscopy is the preferred minimal invasive method for the treatment of joint problems. Instead of making large incisions on the joint, it allows processing through small holes of approximately 0.5 cm. Tools necessary for repair and a high-resolution fiberoptic camera for imaging are inserted through the holes. The surgeon performs the diagnosis and repair by looking at the image projected on the monitor opposite. Arthroscopy, which has many advantages especially due to the small incision, can be used in the problems of the shoulder, knee, hip, ankle, and wrist. The shoulder is the most flexible joint of our body. It has a structure that allows the arm to move in almost all directions. It is more susceptible to trauma due to its 360-degree movement capacity. The shoulder joint, which is the basis of the bones, allows the muscles, tendons, and ligaments to hold together, keep intact, and provide a range […]
The knee joint is a hinge joint between the femur, the tibia, and the patella. The balance of the joint is provided by static and dynamic structures. These structures consist of capsules and ligaments, muscles and tendons. The knee joint that carries the whole load of the body is essential for the range of movement. The muscles in the knee joint have a certain strength and must be balanced. Some problems in the joint may occur as a result of overloading the knee, sporting activities, and age-related knee wear. As the knee joint plays a major role in walking, sitting and standing, bending and straightening, it is exposed to traumas. Arthroscopic surgery is used in most of the knee problems due to the variety and pathologies of the knee joint. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical method. It is also referred to as closed surgery because it is performed through very small holes. It […]
Arthroscopy, which is the method used to examine and treat the problems in the joint, is applied to the knee joint as well as the shoulder, hip, wrist and ankle joints. In arthroscopy surgery, it is aimed to provide the most benefit with the least effect on the body integrity of the patient. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery. Large incisions are not made on the skin, instead treatment is provided with the smallest incisions. Therefore, it is also known as closed surgery method. The most important advantage is that it provides a chance to recover in a very short time, especially after the surgery due to the small incision, less pain and a comfortable process for the patient. In arthroscopy which is performed by entering through several holes of approximately 0.5 cm in size, special treatment and imaging devices are used. On the one hand, the instruments to be […]
