Medicana Neurological Sciences, Spine and Orthopedics Center
Neurosurgery, Neurology, Orthopedics and Traumatology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Radiology and Anesthesiology Departments work in collaboration in Medicana Neurological Sciences, Spine and Orthopedics Center.
Incidence of neurologic and orthopedic diseases and spinal problems is high almost in all societies. Mono-disciplinary approach is usually inadequate for said diseases and they necessitate coordination of multiple medical branches and multi-disciplinary approach. At this specific center which deals with treatment of diseases originating from spine and involves multiple medical disciplines including Neurology, Neurosurgery, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Radiology-Anesthesiology and Orthopedics and Traumatology, patients are offered all cutting-edge technological means, treatments and contributions made by relevant departments.
Multidisciplinary approach reduces time loss in diagnosis and treatment and prevents the need of patient to apply to multiple healthcare facilities to have further examinations and interventions. Thus, correct diagnosis and treatment is made and all details about the patient can be monitored by the center since records are retained. In the simplest term, for a patient applying for lumbar pain and found to have disc herniation as indicated by MRI, multi-disciplinary approach may reveal out that the pain originates from a disorder located in knee and said disorder can be treated using surgical intervention or Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation procedures.
In the center, Epilepsy Unit, Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors Unit and Cerebrovascular Diseases Unit are put into service for Neurological sciences. Know-how and training agreements are made by Wooridul Group, which among leader centers worldwide in the field of spine diseases. Endoscopic lumbar herniation operations are performed in operation rooms which are specifically designed for spine diseases.
Arthroscopic surgery, prosthesis surgery and peripheral nervous surgery procedures are performed in Orthopedics and Traumatology Unit. A comprehensive Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Unit was established to offer pre- and post-operative rehabilitation services to patients in Orthopedics and Traumatology, Neurosurgery and Spine Surgery departments. In addition to conventional Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation procedures, spine reinforcement robot and Red-Cord system are put into service for diseases of lower back region and all joint diseases, respectively.
The aim of Medicana Neurologic Sciences and Spine Center is to offer multi-disciplinary healthcare service to all patients. For this purpose, details about each patient are retained in a common database and they may b evaluated by all physicians of the center. Operation decisions are reviewed by joint council and patient is operated only if the decision is approved. Thus, it is not only ensured to prevent wrong diagnosis and treatment, but it also enabled to discuss alternative treatment methods.
