DEPARTMENTS

Orthopedics

The main characteristic of the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at “Acibadem Sistina” that makes it unique is its multidisciplinary approach, resulting incollaborative teamwork of the orthopedic surgeons and surgeons-traumatologists. Prof. Dr. Jordan Saveski, a team member, is aleading traumatology expert in the region. . Our team provides orthopaedic diagnosis and treatment to patients of all ages – from infants (treating injuries and fractures), to geriatric trauma patients (injuries typical to the elderly population).

Endoprosthetics

Endoprosthetics – joint replacement surgeries of the hip, knee and other joints by using the newest prosthetic implants. Such interventions play an important role in orthopedics and traumatology. Resulting from the advanced level of treatment, they put an emphasis on prevention as well as on the high expectation of patients for a better quality of life. We are particularly proud  to perform  ceramic hip endoprostheses implantations and shoulder replacement implants.

Pediatric orthopaedics

The Department offers surgical interventions in children and adults  with acquired and hereditary defects of the locomotor apparatus, putting the emphasis on the correction of congenital bones and joints abnormalities. Soft-tissue deformities are also treated and muscle and tendon repair surgeries are performed at the Department. Surgical interventions offered to patients with cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions must be noted too.

Osteoporosis

Prevention and regular screening for osteoporosis is made possible by the newest densitometry apparatus. Conservative treatment of these conditions in adult patients, as well as treatment of osteoporotic fractures is performed. Vertebroplasty – a procedure treating compression fractures in the spine is one of the surgical interventions carried out by our team.

Orthopedic Oncology

Some of the interventions performed by our team include surgical removal of musculoskeletal tumors. Furthermore the implantation of revision prosthesis and tumor prosthesis is provided to patients who require such intervention. Surgical removal of bone and spinal metastases is also performed at our clinic.
