Orthopedics and Traumatology
All of the diagnosis and treatment methods recognized in modern orthopedics and traumatology are practiced by our Orthopedics and Traumatology Departments.
Our department of Orthopaedic Surgery focuses on patient care of these orthopaedic subspecialties:
- Adult spinal disorders, musculoskeletal tumors, foot and ankle conditions. Reconstructive surgery (osteoarthritis, joint replacements, limb curvature, adult hip dislocation).
- Sports injuries and arthroscopy, shoulder, arm, forearm, wrist and hand (upper extremity) injuries and disorders.
- Adult Pediatric: musculoskeletal diseases and injuries, congenital or developmental disabilities (hip dislocation, clubfoot (pes equinovarus), etc.), protective hip joint surgeries, deformity corrective surgery, external fixation practices and pediatric spinal disorders

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure during which a camera, light and surgical instruments are inserted through tiny incisions. Our orthopedic surgeons perform arthroscopy to examine and treat joint conditions. Arthroscopy can be performed on the shoulder, elbow and wrist to treat ligament, tendon, muscle, cartilage and bone injuries.
Arthroplasty is surgery performed to relieve pain and restore range of motion by realigning or reconstructing a dysfunctional joint.
Arthroplasty is performed on people suffering from severe pain and disabling joint stiffness. Osteoarthritis (OA), a degenerative joint disease, is the most common condition causing joint destruction with pain and impaired movement. Other causes include rheumatoid arthritis (RA), hemophilia, synovitis, and rare bone diseases, which are all known to destroy cartilage. Joint resection, rather than joint replacement, is more likely to be performed on people with rheumatoid arthritis, especially when the elbow joint is involved. Joint replacement is usually reserved for older patients, because of the limited longevity of benefits. The younger the patient, the greater the reliance on medical treatment.
