Prof. Dr. Olcay Güler, MD
He completed his medical education at Istanbul University, Istanbul Faculty of Medicine (CAPA) between 1995 and 2001.
Between 2001 and 2006, he completed his residency training in the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at Istanbul University, Istanbul Faculty of Medicine (CAPA).
He worked in the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology of Medipol University Faculty of Medicine between 2012 and 2017, and in the Orthopedics and Traumatology Department of Altınbaş University Medicalpark Bahçelievler Hospital between April 2017 and October 2020.
Since October 2020, he has been working as an Orthopedics and Traumatology specialist in the Orthopedics and Traumatology clinic of Memorial Şişli Hospital.
Prof. Dr. Olcay GÜLER, MD works in the field of diagnosis and medical and surgical treatments of joint diseases. Robotic Prosthetic Surgery in particular is his main area of interest.
He has experience in robotic (MAKOPLASTY) implant surgery. With the MAKOPLASTY robotic system, he performs implant surgery on his patients.
The most important difference of the MAKOPLASTY robotic system from other systems is its robotic arm system.
The MAKOPLASTY robotic system is one of the most up-to-date robotic systems equipped with a navigation system and a robotic arm system. It provides us with both zero-error surgical planning and the possibility of zero-error bone incision with the help of a robotic arm.
Robotic Prosthetic Surgery is most commonly used in knee and hip joint replacement surgeries. Robotic knee replacement surgery, half (unicondylar) knee replacement, and patellofemoral joint replacement procedures are performed on patients with advanced wear and tear (calcification) in the knee joint. In addition, robotic knee replacement procedure is performed with MAKOPLASTY robotic surgery on patients with deformity-curvature due to previous fractures.
Our most important goal is to restore the knee functions of our patients, by planning the most suitable implant option for their anatomies with the help of the robotic system.
Robotic hip replacement surgery is most commonly performed on patients with advanced wear and tear (calcification) of their hip joints. In addition, MAKOPLASTY robotic hip replacement surgery is performed to treat avascular necrosis of the femur head (decay), calcification due to hip dislocation, and hip fractures.
In robotic hip replacement surgery, minimizing the risk of hip implant dislocation after surgery and avoiding leg length problems are of great importance for the success of the treatment. Next year, the robotic system will start being used in shoulder implant surgery.
