Patients of arthrosis (calcification), which can be defined as the aging of the joints, can be treated with robotic technology, specialized navigation systems and total joint replacement surgeries performed with the help of computers, so that they can return to daily lives very quickly.
Prosthesis surgeries necessary for freedom of movement and pain-free life, which become even more important as our lifespans are getting longer, are performed by experienced specialists with the use of advanced technology.
In Yeditepe University Hospitals, cartilage transplantations can also be performed in cases with extensive cartilage damage and in cases where other treatment methods have failed.
