I was born in Izmir in 1965. I got into Ege University Medical Faculty after completing Izmir Atatürk High School.
Our pediatric orthopaedic specialists evaluate and treat musculoskeletal (bone, joint, muscle and deformity) problems in infants, children and teens, such as scoliosis.
Children’s musculoskeletal systems are still forming, so their response to injuries are often different than those seen in an adult. Growth plates are typically located at the end of the bones. Pediatric orthopedic surgeons protect and promote healthy bone growth while treating skeletal disease in children.
Orthopaedic injuries found in children are fractures through the growth plates, commonly around the wrist, knee, ankle and shoulders. Injuries are also common around the elbow, or supracondylar fractures.
Our team provides care for traumatic injuries and fractures as well as the management of chronic disorders, such as:
- Leg length discrepancy
- In-toeing and out-toeing
- Bowed legs and knocked knees
- Developmental delays
- Cerebral palsy
- Spina bifida
- Developmental hip dysplasia
- Bone and soft tissue tumors
- Foot Problems
- Walking Problems
- Muscular pain
- Congenital Syndromes
Prompt orthopedic care can help children prevent pain and injury later in life, so we emphasize early treatment where possible. The earlier a condition is diagnosed and treated, the better the chances for a good outcome.
Many traumatic injuries, such as bone fractures and ligament tears, require surgical care. If your child has a chronic condition, such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, or spina bifida, surgery to lengthen or move tendons can reduce pain and improve quality of life.
We provide surgical care at Eren Hospital, as well as specialized care for musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders at our Center.
Our orthopedic specialists also provide nonsurgical care. When possible, we take a conservative approach to treatment that includes splinting and casting to limit movement. This treatment aids healing for injuries such as fractures, sprains, strains, and joint dislocations.
Both surgical and nonsurgical treatments are followed by rehabilitation therapy. Our physical therapists and occupational therapists, specialize in helping your child regain his or her strength and get back to an active life.
