Developing World and Orthopedics

Orthopedics is one of the most fast cruising and step forwarding branch in the world of medical sector. With the contribution of both biotechnology and industry, orthopedy really has become very advanced. Now we know that best treatment close the original one is biological treatment. So far, treatment ways that we have put in place or synthetic materials which way we deal with treatment using the support of the synthetic material began to transform the way treatment with biological material. Especially in the last 5 years a lot of studies are made and maintained on these issues very seriously.

Human life which is prolonged every day in our country has reached an average 74-76 years. In some advenced developed countries this number has reached 90 years of age. And people being active, playing sports and spending effort for healthy longevity. But the prolongation of life and more active life bringing along some problems and impairs the articular cartilage which we use. Recommendations on these problems which we say like ‘When your age is advanced we will apply prothesis’ has changed now. With early application problems associated with cartilage can be corrected and will be able to return to a normal quality of life as well.

As it is true with any disease, early diagnosis is valid at orthopedic treatment. It is very important on treatment of the meniscal tears, anterior cruciate ligament injuries that happen in young ages and especially reparation of cartilage lesions. Both it will raise the quality of your life, allow you to stay at the same level and will prevent the deterioration of it.
