Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın is revolutionizing spinal healthcare with his unparalleled medical expertise, ushering in groundbreaking advancements in back pain treatment through his profound experience and commitment to spinal surgery.

With an impressive accomplishment of conducting over 2800 aneurysm and more than 400 AVM surgeries, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın is acclaimed for his individualized patient care approach, with a steadfast focus on patient well-being and satisfaction throughout their healing process.

Aydın’s Revolutionary Approach to Spinal Surgery

The Revolutionary Approach to Spinal Surgery by Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın constitutes a significant progression in spinal surgical practices, offering specific solutions for spinal stenosis and spinal cord compression without the application of metal, thus significantly reducing the risk of tissue injury. This approach comprises outpatient services for disc herniations, non-operative measures for cervical disc herniation, and potent interventions for spinal canal stenosis induced by cervical calcification.

By adopting a unilateral strategy for bilateral decompression in spinal stenosis cases, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın has proficiently applied this approach in more than 4,000 cases over 23 years. “Our goal is to preserve the natural structure and mobility of the spine while providing more room to squeezed spinal nerves,” he elucidates. He highlights the widespread incidence of spinal stenosis among the elderly and the general surgical preference for instrumented techniques, which involve long, invasive procedures, thereby extending the patient’s recovery period. He advocates for more concise, minimally invasive surgeries for elderly patients to reduce post-operative complications, emphasizing the critical need for early post-operative ambulation.

“By using a unilateral approach, on the symptomatic side, we can decompress the spinal canal stenosis and clean disc herniations effectively, minimizing the risk of ‘Adjacent Segment Disease’ and ensuring a faster return to normal life for our patients.” This method also proves effective for addressing multi-level stenosis through a single incision, without affecting the spine’s ability to bear weight.

Pioneering a Natural Access Technique on the Spinal Side

In his treatment of spinal stenosis, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın introduces a pioneering technique that overcomes the challenges associated with conventional screw and rod systems. While these traditional methods are effective for treating traumatic fractures or spinal conditions caused by tumour growth, they can disrupt the spine’s natural biomechanics, potentially necessitating additional surgical procedures.

Drawing from his vast experience of over 10,000 surgeries, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın’s technique entails creating a natural access point on one side of the spine to perform the requisite surgical interventions without compromising spinal stability. This method ensures the maintenance of joint function and eliminates the possibility of adjacent segment disease, with most patients being discharged within a day of their spinal surgery.

Facilitating Swift Healing with Less Invasive Methods

“The key to successful spinal surgery lies in respecting the integrity of the spine’s supporting structures,” Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın notes. Utilizing cutting-edge surgical devices like the high-speed drill and Kairison bone cutter, these procedures can be conducted in a way that is less invasive, minimizes blood loss, and increases procedural efficiency. Moreover, by conserving the yellow ligament during microdiscectomy, the surgery reduces tissue damage, thereby lowering the risk of nerve adhesions and the occurrence of failed back surgery syndrome.

Patients undergoing these state-of-the-art spinal surgeries can anticipate considerably shorter hospital stays, with many being discharged either on the day of or the day following the surgery. Nearly all patients return to their normal activities within 15 days, underscoring the minimally invasive nature of these surgical practices.
