Arthroscopic surgery
Arthroscopy is a method that provides the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and injuries that occur inside the Joint by video examination of the inside of the joints using fiberoptic devices. Arthroscopy is performed with a few small skin incisions and causes a very small scar and pain, but a rapid recovery is observed compared to open surgery. The operation takes about 1 hour and the patient is discharged a few hours after the operation. The patient can step on his foot after surgery and drive after 3 days. There is no need to remove it, as the seam is discarded with fusible material. From professional athletes to housewives; knee-shoulder-hand and ankle arthroscopies, ligament-cartilage-meniscus-tendon operations, cartilage transplants are successfully performed using modern surgical techniques.

Sports Traumatology
Sport is an activity that increases the organic resistance of the body, improves the physiological capacity of the systems, maintains and maintains this capacity. But not preparing enough before starting the sport also brings injuries. Among the areas exposed to sporting trauma, the knee joint ranks first with 32.9%. After the knee joint, most injuries during sports are seen in the ankle, hip and groin area, shoulder joint, thigh area, spine, elbow joint, wrist and hand. Emergency diagnosis and treatment of all sports injuries are carried out in the Department of Sports Traumatology.

Lengthening and leg inequalities
Crooked legs, functional disorders caused by inequality between the legs, short stature are orthopedic problems that can be treated by the Ilizarov method today. Thanks to this method, which has been successfully applied in the orthopedics and Traumatology Departments of IstHealth Health Group, the difference in length in the legs can be equated with brevity compensation, shortening of the long leg and lengthening of the short leg. Ilizarav method is also successfully applied in the treatment of soft tissue loss, curvatures and brevity caused by boiling in bone fractures.

What Is The Ilizarov Method?
It is a system that can give controlled movement to bone fragments with the help of hinges and rods (rods), in which bones are detected by thin wires and circles. Surgical interventions can be applied to child or adult patients with arm and leg disparities that develop after congenital diseases, bone loss and trauma (such as premature closure of growth cartilage). In this process, a low-energy fracture is created in the bone and gradually extended (1mm / day). An extension of up to 80% of the original length of the bone can be achieved in the Extension zone. In parallel with the implant technology developed in appropriate cases, the use of alternative new techniques and technology to ilizarov technique is also carried out.

20. as described by Ilizarov in the century of the revolution of the science of Orthopaedics “distraction osteogenez,” well, of creating new bone by stretching the tissue between broken bone ends to help repair technique and the resulting lengthening with the concept, the restructuring of bone cavities, treatment of nonunion of the main solution methods are used in orthopaedic surgery today. With an instrument called an Ilizarov external fixator, acute shortening and extension from the boiling area performed in conjunction with new bone-forming applications by stretching the tissue that helps repair applied, and from another area in the same bone. With the Ilizarov method, the patient’s daily activities are not restricted, joint functions are maintained, boiling is performed and curvature is corrected and length is restored. Thanks to this technique, closing bone cavities and other structural and functional disorders that can cause disability in the patient, such as infection, are eliminated, as well as brevity is compensated.

Currently, patient comfort stands out in the treatment of boiling

In the treatment of hard-to-boil bones, short treatment time is very important for patient comfort. By using combined techniques developed for this purpose, the advantages of the external device are taken advantage of and the time of the device attached to the bone attached to the outside of the body, called the “external fixator”, is shortened by an average of half. Combined methods for extending the bones associated with the hip and tibia are currently used in orthopedic surgery. For short periods after trauma, an extension can be made through intramedullary nails. The combined use of intramedullary nails and external fixator also reduces recovery time and increases patient comfort. This combination has been successfully used in the treatment of brevity, bone cavities and boiling of bone fractures.

What Diseases Is Ilizarov Method Used To Treat?

Closed and open fractures,

In fractures that do not boil,

Bone extension treatment (height extension, polio sequelae, post-trauma, post-infection, shortening due to premature closure of growth cartilage and leg length disparities),

Correction of curvature of arms and legs,

Bone loss (usually occurs after a tumor, trauma, or infection),

Treatment of untreated developmental hip dislocation,

Foot diseases,

Bone infections,

Joint movement restrictions,

In metabolic diseases,

It can be used for bone structural disorders.

Child Orthopedics and Traumatology
IstHealth Health Group children’s Orthopedics and Traumatology Department is one of the rare centers in Turkey. Follow-up and treatment of walking disorders, foot problems, congenital deformities, brevity, developmental hip dysplasia and spine disorders of children under 16 years of age are carried out by our experienced orthopedists.

Hand surgery and microsurgery
Thanks to microsurgical techniques, vessels and nerves smaller than 1mm in diameter can be operated using needles and threads that are difficult to see with the naked eye. In this way, organs such as severed hands, arms, feet, legs can be replaced and very thin nerve fibers can be repaired and the inserted limb can feel and move again. Acute soft tissue trauma (blood vessel, tendon and nerve cuts, bruising and skin tissue loss and amputations as a result of Nov and jamming), hand and wrist pain, trigger finger nervous, jams, tennis elbow, ganglion cysts in the best way your problems such as the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment are performed.

Knee surgery and arthroscopic surgery
The knees are subjected to more stress than other joints. Failure to prepare before starting Sports and excessive forcing of the knees during sports leads to damage to cartilage tissue, tearing of the meniscus, tearing of the ligaments and disrupting the health of the knee. Injuries to structures such as the meniscus, anterior cruciate ligament, articular cartilage, capsules in the knee joint, intra-articular inflammation called septic arthritis, synovitis, that is, thickening of the joint membrane, moderate knee joint calcification, intra-articular fractures are treated with arthroscopic surgery.

Trauma
Fast and good results in very common injuries are possible only with modern and effective treatment methods. To mention them briefly;

Functional detection technique: a new plaster technique that allows shorter, semi-rigid, early load and muscle function instead of classic hard and long plaster in cases that do not require surgery. The casts used here do not cause itching, allergies, they also allow you to easily bathe or even enter the sea-pool.

Bone stimulants: especially in stress fractures and small bone fractures, the time of bone healing is shortened by half by ultrasonic wave.

Closed Intramedullary Nailing techniques: these are techniques that are applied in most fractures of long bones in legs and arms (simple-segmented) and hip fractures, made from 2-3 cm incisions without opening the fracture line and shortening the fracture healing time.

Small interventional operations with arthroscopic assistance: these are techniques that allow the detection of fractures in some of the intra-articular fractures without opening the joint, thereby reducing the possibility of joint stiffness that may occur after surgery, shortening the time of physical therapy and achieving full function.

Prosthetic surgery: these are applications that give older people the chance to apply more than the types of hip and shoulder fractures, and allow them to walk the day after surgery with new prosthetic designs.
