Orthopedics and Traumatology

At Yeditepe University Hospitals Orthopedi ve Traumatology Department, the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal problems are conducted by experienced specialists.

Joint injuries, which are frequently encountered in daily life and sports performances, can be solved with modern arthroscopic surgical techniques. Injuries that are present not only in the knees, but also in various joints such as the shoulders, ankles, elbows, hips, and wrists can be treated with arthroscopic surgical methods, which are performed completely enclosed and allow patients to return to their daily lives in a very short time, often without the need for hospitalization.

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. In this way, potential problematic situations such as serious calcification and prosthesis at a young age or later are prevented and the health of the joints can be preserved.

Spinal fractures, infections, tumors, congenital or acquired curvatures can also be successfully treated with modern surgical techniques.
