  • Muscle relaxation at the back of the heel and leg (Achillotenotomy-gastrocnemius relaxation)

    Gastrocnemius muscles are located at the back of the leg and Achilles tendon is located behind the heel. Increased spasticity due to strained muscles disturb walking biomechanics and cause a series of problems that may lead to tiptoeing, failure to step straight and bent knees. Upon evaluation of paediatric orthopaedist, achillotenotomy can be used toRead more →
  • Muscle relaxation operation behind the knee (Hamstring tenotomy)

    Hamstring muscles are located at the back of the knee. Increased spasticity due to strained muscles behind the knee disturb walking biomechanics and cause a series of problems that may lead to squat walking, hump and hip dislocation. Upon evaluation of the paediatric orthopaedist, hamstring tenotomy is practiced by relaxing the muscles at the back

  • Thigh area muscle relaxation operation (Adductor tenotomy)

    Increased spasticity due to strained thigh muscles disturb walking biomechanics and cause a series of problems that may lead to hip dislocation. Problems arise in sitting, standing and walking and providing personal hygiene and upon evaluation of paediatric orthopaedist, Botulinum Toxin or relaxation is applied to thigh muscles. In surgical practice a scar of 1

  • Tendon transfer from behind the ankle (Tibialis posterior tendon transfer)

    Tibialis posterior tendon is located at the back and inside of the ankle. Muscles strained due to increased spasticity disturb walking biomechanics and cause a series of problems that may lead to tiptoeing, failure to step straight and bent knees. Upon evaluation of paediatric orthopaedist, a portion of the tibialis posterior tendon is moved to

  • Congenital Arm Paralysis – Brachial Palsy

    The brachial palsy is defined as a muscle weakness or paralysis of different severity degrees, which develops in the arm, forearm and hand on the respective side during dystocia, due to the stretching in the nerve structures starting from neck level of the spinal cord of the infant and extending to the hand through the

  • Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip

    The congenital incongruence between the bones constituting the hip joint is called “developmental dysplasia of the hip.” Conditions ranging from a simple incongruence between the bones to the very later stage in which a hip dislocation is seen fall within the developmental dysplasia of the hip. This condition, which was defined as the congenital hip
