Scoliosis Surgery in Turkey


What is Scoliosis?

Scoliosis is the name given to the three-dimensional curvature of the spine. Scoliosis occurs when the vertebrae slides to the left or right and rotates around them, so spine deviate from the midline. When looking at the X-RAY images of a patient with scoliosis, the spine is “S” or “C”.

Why Does Scoliosis Occur?

Congenital scoliosis (Congenital scoliosis)

Muscular and nervous diseases (Neuromuscular scoliosis)

Degenerative scoliosis (Scoliosis, usually seen at the age of 40 and above)

Scoliosis of unknown cause (Idiopathic scoliosis)

What is The Anesthesia Ttype Of Scoliosis Surgery?

  • General Anesthesia

How is Scoliosis Surgery Performed?

Scoliosis surgery can be performed by removing the rib cage with the anterior approach (front), intervening by the back with the posterior (back) approach, or using both methods. In scoliosis surgery, curvature in the spine is corrected with the help of implants.

During this operation, accurate positioning of the implants is ensured by using advanced technology O-ARM imaging technology and neuromonitoring. In this way, the likelihood of undesirable conditions such as nerve damage (stroke risk) is almost zeroed.

What is The Recovery Process After The Scoliosis Surgery?

Daily actions can be done during the first six weeks. However, spine-damaging behaviors such as bending and sudden movements are avoided during this period. During the second six weeks, activities such as sightseeing and going to school can be done. However, as during the first six weeks, bending and moment movements are not performed. After the third month, swimming can be done. But from this period until the end of the sixth month, very careful attention should be paid and compelling activities should be avoided by protecting the spine well. At the end of the first year, the patient completely returns to his normal life.

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.
