Narrow canal disease is an important disorder that can greatly reduce a person’s quality of life. During periods when the narrow canal discomfort is not yet very advanced, it is normal to consult a family doctor when there is only low back pain. But if the patient’s quality of life does not improve with non-surgical treatments, it is the right choice to go to an orthopedic or neurosurgical specialist doctor in Turkey to make a clear diagnosis.

When the narrow canal disease progresses and pain hits the legs, numbness and weakness in the legs begin to appear, major and minor ablution control deteriorates, quality of life decreases, and walking distance shortens, surgery is in question. It is necessary to apply to a neurosurgery specialist doctor for a narrow canal patient who has become like this.


The spinal canal through which the spinal cord and nerves pass naturally narrows more and more every year. As the canal narrows, the walking distance becomes shorter and shorter, and the quality of life decreases more. There are such patients that they can’t even go from one room to another comfortably in the house. When such a narrow canal patient applies to a brain and neurosurgery specialist doctor (neurosurgery specialist doctor), the doctor will listen to the patient’s story in detail, perform the examination meticulously, and make the final diagnosis by requesting the necessary examinations and analyzes. A neurosurgery specialist doctor will diagnose narrow canal disease using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and clearly reveal how advanced the narrow canal is. As a result of all these examinations, the specialist doctor will clearly decide whether surgery is required for the narrow canal.


If a person with narrow canal disease needs surgery, it is useful not to delay it. Because the sooner the narrow canal surgery is performed, the more face-pleasing the results obtained are. When surgery is required for a narrow canal patient, it is very advantageous to perform this by Internal Decompression method with Microtechnology, which is a screw-less method. Because when the specialist doctor performing the narrow canal surgery uses the Internal Decompression method with Microtechnics, the canal is expanded from the inside by entering the spinal canal with microtechnics. In this case, the stabilization of the spine does not deteriorate. Therefore, it is not necessary to attach screws and similar-style instruments to the spine, the stabilization of which does not deteriorate. The fact that the specialist doctor works in this way, that is, the operation is performed without screws, and as a result, no foreign body is placed in the body, is a great gain for the narrow canal patient.
