Strabismus in Turkey


In strabismus, your eyes are not aligned, they look in different directions, and parallelism is distorted in simultaneous eye movements. A surgical procedure to cut a muscle or ligament to correct strabismus is called a strabotomy.

When Is Strabotomy Applied?

In cases where glasses or other strabismus treatments are not preferred in both pediatric and adult patients, the surgical methods can be used. The doctor decides whether the eye is suitable for the surgical method.

How is Strabotomy Applied?

Strabismus surgery in children is performed under general anesthesia. Before surgery, children are usually given medication to relieve anxiety when separated from their parents. Administration in adults is performed under general, or local anesthesia. In either case, the patient should not consume any food/drink for approximately eight hours before the procedure. Therefore, surgery for pediatric patients is usually scheduled in the early morning hours.

The eye is never removed from the eye socket for surgery. The eyelids are kept slightly open with a lid. A small opening is made in the surface of the mucous membrane of the eye to access the muscles. Then the muscle is weakened, strengthened or moved. Most strabismus surgeries take less than one to two hours; however, the patient remains in the operating room for several hours, including preoperative and postoperative care.

Spine surgery isn’t for everyone. In fact, 90% of patients don’t actually need neck surgery to get back to normal.

If you’ve seen a neck doctor elsewhere who recommends spine surgery, make sure your diagnosis is correct before saying yes or no. Make an appointment with an OrthoIndy spine specialist and find out what’s really going on back there.

My aunt had a knee replacement surgery on both her knees and we've seen an incredible progress eventhough it's only been 2 weeks. Doctor is amazing, hospitality is another level, nurses and all procedures are highly professional. As someone who has been to many big hospitals in Turkey, I must say this one is by far the best cause they're health-oriented as opposed to money oriented. Definitely recommend it to anyone especially for orthopedic surgery and physiotherapy.
