My Areas of Expertise


Knee Treatments

The knee joint is our most frequently injured joint. When we are tired, we say that our knees no longer carry us. Such a central joint also has its own characteristics. Therefore, unlike other joints, most of the society recognizes knee joint structures. Few do not know the terms such as meniscus, anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, lateral ligaments, kneecap cartilage, cartilage melting. Among knee diseases, there are situations that can happen to everyone, such as congenital conditions, sports injuries, meniscus tears, anterior cruciate ligament ruptures, cartilage meltdowns. An important part of bone and cartilage tumors are seen in the bones around the knee. Knee diseases can be progressive. Congenital problems such as directional deformities of the leg bones and friction disorders of the kneecaps also affect daily life. There are complaints such as pain when going up and down stairs, difficulty in praying, difficulty in getting up after squatting, swelling of the knee, tripping in the knee, locking of the knee joint.

Most knee pains are mechanical problems. Meniscus tears, knee ligament injuries, cartilage injuries are mostly treated with closed arthroscopic surgeries. Arthroscopy allows us to see most of the joint directly with the camera, and when many procedures are performed with closed surgery, recovery is also facilitated. We use open surgeries for conditions such as tumors and prosthesis.

On this page, I tried to give answers to frequently asked questions about the knee joint.
