Orthopedic Spine Care

Back pain isn’t normal – but you don’t have to suffer. When back pain keeps you from doing your job, getting a good night’s sleep, going on that dream vacation, or playing with your grandkids, it’s time to see a back doctor. The first step is to identify what is wrong!

Our spine team uses non-operative therapies and advanced surgical techniques to treat all spine problems. At Turan Turan Hospital, we treat a wide variety of spine-related injuries and conditions, including:

  • Neck Pain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Cervical Radiculopathy
  • Disc Disease
  • Pediatric Spine Problems
  • Scoliosis, Kyphosis
  • Herniated Discs
  • Sciatica
  • Back Injures
  • Spinal Deformity
  • Spine Fractures
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Spondylolysis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Vertebral Tumors

Every patient is unique. After our spine team’s experts accurately diagnose what’s causing your back pain, we’ll create an individualized treatment plan to help you heal and feel stronger.

Most of the time, getting rid of debilitating back pain doesn’t require surgery to help you start to feel better. Your needs are always at the center of our approach at Turan Turan.

Your doctor will work with you, considering your goals and lifestyle needs.Then, we’ll develop a back pain treatment plan designed to help you get a normal back—whatever your normal looks like—using proven, non-surgical treatment.

Treatment options including:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Medications
  • Exercise Program
  • Spinal Injections
  • Orthoses, Braces
  • Surgery

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Spine surgery has advanced in the last ten years thanks to new minimally invasive techniques. Surgeons that perform minimally invasive spine surgery use special tools to access the spine and hold tissues out of the way without damaging them. As these technologies have advanced, minimally invasive spine surgery has become more common.

By using the latest imaging and navigation tools, spine surgeons can treat complex spinal conditions with millimeter precision and greater ease. In addition, unlike traditional surgery methods, the assistance of interoperative navigation requires a much smaller incision and reduces pain in recovery, all of which lead to improved outcomes and quality of life after surgery.

Endoscopic discectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove herniated disc material that is causing pain in the lower back and legs (lumbar), midback (thoracic), or neck and arms (cervical).

Endoscopic discectomy is the least invasive and most effective surgical technique for treating spinal disc herniation patients. With endoscopic spine surgery, surgeons do not need to remove bones and muscles to remove herniated discs. Surgeons can see the spine with a camera smaller than a smartphone camera through a minor surgical port (tube). Large incisions are avoided. The procedure does not traumatize your spine as traditional spine surgeries do. The whole process of disc herniation takes about 30 minutes. The patient goes home in 2–3 hours when the surgery is done in a surgery center.

Another groundbreaking technology is Mazor X. Turan Turan is the first hospital in Turkey to introduce the Mazor X Guidance System into its spine program. Highly-skilled surgeons—like the team at Turan Turan—hhave now replaced the majority of their traditional spine surgeries with minimally invasive procedures, as the outcomes for patients are so much better.

Minimally invasive spine surgery generally results in less post-operative pain and a shorter recovery than traditional spine surgery. When compared to traditional surgical methods, the benefits of minimally invasive spine surgery include the following:

  • Faster surgery
  • Less blood loss
  • Less muscle and tissue damage
  • Less pain after the operation
  • Shorter hospital stay (most patients go home within 24 hours)
  • Decreased risk of infection
  • Less need for narcotic pain medication
  • Faster recovery/return to normal

Turan Turan Spine Robotics Program

Spine surgery can be a scary prospect for many patients. Worries about the accuracy, patient outcomes, and recovery time are common. You can rest easily when it comes to spine surgery performed with the Mazor X Guidance System.

Turan Turan is the first in Türkiye to add the Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance System to its spine program. We choose the Mazor X System to provide our surgeons with a pre-operative assessment of a patient and intra-operative trajectory precision when treating that patient.

As spinal surgery has evolved, more focus has been placed on minimally invasive techniques, which is where the Mazor X System can deliver its greatest technological benefits.

Surgical spine treatment requires careful planning and precision, accounting for a patient’s unique anatomy. With Mazor X’s 3D planning, your surgeon creates a highly customized surgical plan prior to entering the operating room.

During the procedure, your surgeon uses mechanical guidance to implement the procedure with unparalleled precision– providing consistent results and optimal outcomes for patients.

Your surgeon will select the best treatment for your specific condition. Based on your CT scan, your surgeon will use the system’s advanced 3D planning software to plan the optimal surgery customized for your anatomy and diagnosis.

Once in the operating room, Mazor X guides your surgeon precisely to the preplanned anatomical location where intervention is necessary. Mazor Robotics system is not independent and does not cut or perform any action on your body. Only your surgeon performs the required procedures, such as placing implants.

Your surgeon is always in full control of the system. Also, at any stage, your surgeon can decide to continue without the assistance of the Mazor X.

Who is a candidate for Robotic Spine Surgery?

If you are among the many suffering from a debilitating spinal condition or back pain, you may be a candidate for spine surgery with the Mazor X System. Surgery with Mazor Robotics technology provides increased safety and precision for various spine procedures and, in some cases, allows for minimally invasive surgery.

Turan Turan spine surgeon may use the robot to perform a number of surgeries, including:

  • Scoliosis
  • Herniated Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Kyphosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spine Fractures
