Alexandra, who was diagnosed with scoliosis at the
age of 12, tells about the happy ending of the struggle she has been fighting
for about 10 years after robotic scoliosis surgery at Bursa Turan & Turan
Turan Turan Healthcare Group, as the first and only
center in Turkey that applies Major X Robotic Spine Surgery technology in Scoliosis
For the results of scoliosis surgery to be
successful, it is important that the implants are placed in the spine in the
most accurate way in 3D (3D) in accordance with the special plan and extremely
precise technical measurements must be made.
The robotic system guides the surgeon to prevent
going out of plan and possible deviations With the latest generation MAZOR X robot
used in robotic spine surgery, 99.5% and above accuracy is achieved in the
placement of pedicle screws or other implants in the spine in the robotic spine
- With the use of the O-Arm device during the
surgery, the amount of radiation exposure of the patients is further reduced.
- The recovery period of the patients after the
surgery performed with the robotic scoliosis surgery system is shorter and less
painful. During this period, patients experience an easy recovery process by
moving more comfortably.
Here is Alexandra’s story…
My name is Madelina Alexandra. I came from Russia.
I am 22 years old. When I was 12, I was diagnosed with Scoliosis and
conservative treatment was recommended. Then doctors in Russia told me they
couldn’t fix my scoliosis with a corset. I went to Germany in 2017. I had a
corset made there that took about 10 degrees. It helped with little success,
but eventually, the deformation got worse.
My scoliosis is so hard because until about three
years ago, it did not bother me, I had never suffered. Just a cosmetic
irregularity. But three years ago, everything changed. I started to have severe
pain. Half an hour of walking was a problem for me. Respiration is also lacking.
Overall, this is reflected in motor function and quality of life. Because the
pain really exists and can be quite severe.
A friend of mine recommended Turan Turan in Bursa.
We arrived at Istanbul airport and the driver took us from there with a very
comfortable car. I went to see Dr. Yunus. I had a lot of examinations, X-rays,
and other examinations, some tests were done, and we determined the plan of the
surgery. I really liked the professionalism of the doctor. I asked him many
questions about my illness, he gave me comprehensive answers. The attitude here
is very good.

Robotic Scoliosis Surgery at Turan Turan Healthcare Group
This is the first time I have encountered such an
operational approach. Robotic Surgery and the use of Major X robot in such
operations. Because I have never seen anything like this in Russia or Germany,
and naturally, this gave me an even more sense of confidence and security.
I want to start strengthening, by doing sports with
my boyfriend, running, and jogging to exercise intensely, to strengthen my
