Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın: Transforming Spinal Health with Advanced Microdiscectomy and Spinal Canal Stenosis Interventions

Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın is at the forefront of spinal health innovation, providing exceptional medical care and introducing a new era in the management of back pain through his extensive experience and dedicated approach to spinal surgery.

With a commendable history of over 2800 aneurysm interventions and beyond 400 AVM treatments, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın is renowned for his patient-centric approach, ensuring the highest levels of patient satisfaction and well-being throughout their treatment.

The Aydın Approach to Spinal Surgery

The Aydın Approach, pioneered by Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın, marks a significant breakthrough in spinal surgical techniques, delivering focused treatments for spinal stenosis and spinal cord compression without the incorporation of metal, thereby reducing tissue damage. This strategy includes outpatient services for disc herniations, conservative treatments for cervical disc herniation, and effective remedies for spinal canal stenosis caused by cervical calcification.

Employing a unilateral method for bilateral decompression in spinal stenosis, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın has successfully implemented this approach in over 4,000 cases throughout the last 23 years. “Our goal is to preserve the natural structure and mobility of the spine while providing more room to squeezed spinal nerves,” he explains. He discusses the commonality of spinal stenosis among the elderly and the typical surgical inclination towards instrumented methods, which involve protracted and invasive procedures, prolonging the patient’s return to everyday life. He advocates for more concise, less invasive operations for the aged to minimize post-operative complications, emphasising the necessity for immediate ambulation post-surgery.

“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 is also applicable for multi-level stenosis through a single incision, without affecting the spine’s load-bearing capacity.

Developing a Natural Opening on the Spinal Side

Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın’s treatment for spinal stenosis incorporates an innovative technique that avoids the complications associated with the conventional screw and rod systems. Though these traditional methods are adept at treating traumatic fractures or spinal conditions due to tumour growth, they can interfere with the spine’s biomechanics, often leading to additional surgeries.

With an extensive experience of more than 10,000 surgeries, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın’s procedure involves creating a natural passage on one side of the spine to perform necessary surgeries without compromising spinal stability. This approach retains the mobility of the joints and prevents the occurrence of adjacent segment disease, allowing for patient discharge within a day post-surgery.

Quicker Healing Through Less Invasive Techniques

“The key to successful spinal surgery lies in respecting the integrity of the spine’s supporting structures,” Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın emphasizes. By deploying advanced surgical tools such as the high-speed drill and Kairison bone cutter, these surgeries can be conducted in a way that is less invasive, reduces bleeding, and increases efficiency. Additionally, by conserving the yellow ligament during microdiscectomy, the procedure limits tissue damage, thereby reducing nerve adhesions and the potential for failed back surgery syndrome.

Patients undergoing these cutting-edge spinal procedures can anticipate markedly shorter hospital stays, with many being discharged on the same day or the following day. Almost all patients resume their normal activities within 15 days, attesting to the minimally invasive nature of these surgical interventions.
