Orthopedics in Turkey: Skeleto-muscular system treatment
Disorders of the functionality of the musculoskeletal system today are extremely common. They occur against the background of excessive physical exertion, sports injuries, weakening of bones and muscles, a sedentary lifestyle, congenital or acquired systemic diseases. According to WHO, more than 2/3 of the world's population are affected by pathologies of the musculoskeletal system. At the same time, there are threatening tendencies of an increase in the incidence and cost of treatment. A balanced combination of price and quality is characterized by modern orthopedics in Turkey - the specialists of this country have achieved significant success in the diagnosis and treatment of pathologies of the musculoskeletal system. The mild climate, the use of modern treatment technologies and affordability made it the best choice for patients from all around the world.
The priority activity areas of orthopedic clinics in Turkey are sports injuries, spinal surgery, arthroscopy of joints, microsurgery of the wrist and hip surgery. Along with this, the possibilities of effective treatment are offered for non-healing fractures of the arms and legs, as well as infectious lesions of bone tissue. In the departments of Turkish multidisciplinary centers and on the basis of specialized orthopedic clinics, all types of treatment for congenital deformities and displacements of the extremities, Perthes disease, bone and soft tissue problems, sports injuries, neuromuscular pathologies and others are performed.
Orthopedics diseases and methods of treatment
Traumatology and orthopedics are closely connected. Mechanical, physical, and chemical damage causes local and general changes in the body. In this case, traumatology comes to the rescue, existing inseparably with another discipline - orthopedics. Despite the historical and specific features, a single medical specialty was formed. Therefore, an orthopedic traumatologist is engaged in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of injuries, orthopedic diseases of the musculoskeletal system.
After interviewing the patient, examination and palpation, the Orthopedists prescribes x-ray studies. Radiography is carried out not only in two mutually perpendicular projections. If necessary, it is supplemented by other projections, direct image enlargement. For the diagnosis of orthopedic diseases, tomography has gained great popularity: computed, magnetic resonance, positron emission. Also use fistulography, arthrography, angiography and other methods. Correct diagnosis in orthopedics allows you to accurately determine the location of the lesion, the number of pathological foci, changes in the bone, periosteum, joints, soft tissues.
When it comes to dealing with injuries, the Orthopedists approaches differentially to the study of patients who does not have strong symptoms and patients with a severe clinical picture. The following indicators are taken into account:
- – Deformation degree
- – Crepitus
- – Pathological mobility
- – Bleeding
- – Swelling
- – Nature of pain
- – Degree of damage to nerves, blood vessels, tendons
As a result, the specialist manages to save the patient’s time, because without any damage to his health, some types of examinations are not prescribed. At the same time, the radiation dose and the cost of treatment is significantly reduced.
Advanced methods in orthopedics treatment
Many diseases that are in the competence of orthopedics can be eliminated using innovative technologies. Bone fractures are treated fast, the best methods of osteosynthesis using pins and plates are used. The patient gets the opportunity to self-care and return to an active life. The risk of complications is minimal. The cosmetic effect is excellent. Joint replacement is considered one of the most revolutionary methods of treating orthopedic diseases. It gives a full life even to seriously ill people of advanced age who could not move independently before treatment.
Arthroscopic resection of the meniscus, plastic surgery of the anterior cruciate ligament and chondroplasty are done by using minimally invasive methods. Treatment in orthopedics virtually eliminates the trauma of operations with the appearance of an arthroscope, because the device can be inserted into the joint through a micro incision.
Electrical muscle stimulation corrects movement during pathological walking. Joint function is normalized, pain is eliminated, and degenerative changes slow down. Physical and cosmetic defects disappear.
Orthopedics and traumatology conquer diseases improve the quality of life. The limitation of mobility, which is solved by orthopedics carries away a lot of problems. Body enters the conditions which are alien to him. From the muscles which do not receive enough nerve impulses to the central nervous system. Muscles stop massaging blood vessels, which negatively affects the blood circulation in the whole body. Metabolism is broken, bones are depleted in calcium. Almost all organs and tissues are affected. And in this regard, modern orthopedics is a real salvation!
