Orthopedics and Traumatology, It is a branch of science that examines both congenital and subsequent traumatic disorders in the human skeletal structure. From childhood, developmental anatomical problems can appear. In this process, Pediatric Orthopedic Specialists organize treatment programs to make the process comfortable.
General Orthopedics and Traumatology Specialists deal with bone disorders and traumas experienced in the general life process. In general, the ailments that orthopedic specialists are interested in;
- traumatic fractures,
- bone tumors,
- joint disorders,
- complaints related to rheumatic joint disorders,
- prosthetic surgery applications in knee and hip joint disorders in advanced ages
Sub-branches related to Orthopedics and Traumatology
Orthopedics and Traumatology, like many other branches, are also divided into sub-branches. The data obtained during the development or deterioration of the human skeletal structure according to different times provides a serious source of information for the next process. Other sub-branches in orthopedics and traumatology are listed as follows.
- Pediatric Orthopedics: Diagnosis and solution of the elements related to the deterioration of the skeletal structure or developmental problems during the developmental period
- Hand-Wrist Surgery: The unit that produces the necessary interventions and treatments for the elimination of traumatic or congenital disorders related to the forearm and wrist
- Spine Surgery: Implant surgery attempts to correct the developmental disorders of the spine structure, mostly in scoliosis surgery
- Artoplasty / Joint surgery: Interventions for the application of prostheses, which are generally used in knee and hip surgery interventions
- Arthroscopy: Advanced treatment protocols on cartilage tissue, meniscus, cruciate ligaments for knee functionality and mobility
- Tumor Surgery: Surgical interventions on bone tumors
- Trauma Surgery: The unit that performs the necessary implantation surgery interventions in all kinds of traumatic bone fractures
Congenital Hip Dysplasia
Hip dislocation (Congenital Hip Dysplasia) is usually seen in infancy. The cause arises from the anatomical defect of the bed (acetabulum) of the femoral head in the pelvis. In addition, hip dislocation may develop due to careless handling of the child by the parents during infancy.
In general, hip dislocations detected in the early period do not require surgical intervention. Such cases can be treated with medical methods and rehabilitation techniques.
