Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın is leading a revolution in spinal health, providing unparalleled medical expertise and heralding a breakthrough in the treatment of back pain through his committed practice and deep-seated experience in spinal surgeries.

Boasting an impressive repertoire with over 2800 aneurysm interventions and more than 400 AVM treatments, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın is celebrated for his bespoke patient care approach, placing a premium on patient well-being and satisfaction through their treatment odyssey.

The Aydın Spinal Technique

The Aydın Spinal Technique, devised by Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın, is a cornerstone in the evolution of spinal surgery, delivering targeted therapies for spinal stenosis and spinal cord compression without the deployment of metals, thereby minimizing tissue damage. This includes same-day services for disc herniations, non-operative options for cervical disc herniation, and effective approaches for spinal canal stenosis due to cervical calcification.

Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın’s adoption of a unilateral route for bilateral decompression in spinal stenosis has seen successful applications in over 4,000 cases across 23 years. “Our goal is to preserve the natural structure and mobility of the spine while providing more room to squeezed spinal nerves,” he remarks. He sheds light on the ubiquity of spinal stenosis in the elderly and the surgical penchant for instrumented methodologies, which entail extended, invasive surgeries, thereby delaying patients’ return to their routine lives. He endorses shorter, less invasive surgeries for senior patients to curtail post-surgical complications, accentuating the significance of immediate postoperative mobility.

“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 modality also accommodates multi-level stenosis through a singular incision, without undermining the spine’s structural fortitude.

Forming a Natural Passage on the Spine’s Aspect

Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın’s strategy for treating spinal stenosis introduces a unique method that circumvents the issues inherent in traditional screw and rod systems. While these standard practices are effective for treating traumatic fractures or spinal complications from tumour growth, they can disrupt the spine’s natural biomechanics, often necessitating further interventions.

Armed with the experience of conducting over 10,000 surgeries, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın’s technique involves fashioning a natural conduit on one side of the spine to undertake necessary procedures without compromising spinal stability. This technique safeguards joint flexibility and wards off the advent of adjacent segment disease, with patients typically being discharged within a day of their spinal operation.

Accelerated Healing Through Minimally Invasive Methods

“The key to successful spinal surgery lies in respecting the integrity of the spine’s supporting structures,” Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın points out. Through the application of sophisticated surgical instruments like the high-speed drill and Kairison bone cutter, these operations can be executed in a manner that is less invasive, diminishes blood loss, and enhances efficacy. Moreover, by preserving the yellow ligament in microdiscectomy, the procedure reduces tissue damage, thereby lowering the probability of nerve adhesions and the incidence of failed back surgery syndrome.

Patients treated with these advanced spinal techniques can expect significantly shorter hospital stays, with many being discharged on the day of or the day after surgery. Nearly all patients return to their normal activities within 15 days, underscoring the minimally invasive nature of these surgical practices.
