Pioneering Spinal Health with Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın’s Microdiscectomy and Spinal Canal Stenosis Surgery
Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydins innovative surgery transforms spinal care into a new era of back pain relief, providing top-notch medical services to his patients with a dedicated career and experience in spinal surgery.
ISTANBUL, TURKEY. 14th March, 2024 – Having performed thousands of complex interventions such as over 2800 aneurysm surgeries and more than 400 AVM surgeries, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın stands out for his individualized approach to each patient, prioritizing patient satisfaction and health throughout the treatment process.

The Yunus Aydın Technique
The Yunus Aydın Technique, pioneered by Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın, represents a breakthrough in spinal surgery, offering targeted treatments for spinal stenosis and spinal cord compression without metal use, resulting in minimal damage. It includes outpatient herniated disc treatments, non-invasive approaches for cervical disc herniation, and effective solutions for spinal cord stenosis due to neck calcification. 

Prof.Dr.Yunus Aydın applied a unilateral approach, bilateral decompression for spinal stenosis. He used this technique in more than 4,000 cases over 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 says. Spinal stenosis occurs in older people; almost every surgeon prefers instrumented techniques which are prolonged and bloody operations, and the patients cannot return to normal life in a short time. He says, “The operation in older patients should be short, bloodless, and can walk right after surgery to avoid complications.” 

“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 technique can be applied to multi-level stenosis through the same incision and doesn’t violate the weight-bearing capacity of the spine.

Creates a natural window on one side of the spine
In treating spinal stenosis, Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın employs a unique method that avoids the complications associated with traditional screw and rod systems. These systems, while being effective in treating traumatic fractures or spinal issues due to tumour growth, can change the biomechanics of the spine, often leading to additional surgeries. 

The approach of Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın, having top-level experience with more than 10 thousand surgeries, involves creating a natural window on one side of the spine, performing necessary procedures without violating the stability of the spine. This technique preserves joint movement and prevents the development of adjacent segment disease. After spinal surgeries, patients are discharged within one day.
Less invasive procedures lead to faster recovery 
“The key to successful spinal surgery lies in respecting the integrity of the spine’s supporting structures,” explains Prof. Dr. Yunus Aydın. “By using advanced tools like the high-speed drill device and Kairison bone cutter, we can conduct these surgeries in a less invasive, less bloody, and more efficient manner. Also, by preserving the yellow ligament in microdiscectomy, we ensure minimal tissue damage, thereby reducing adhesions around the nerves and lowering the risk of failed back surgery.” 

Patients undergoing these advanced spinal surgeries can expect significantly shorter hospital stays, with many leaving the hospital the same or the next day. They all return to their normal activities within 15 days, a testament to the minimally invasive nature of these procedures.
