About the replacement arthroplasty surgery

Surgeries for replacement arthroplasty involve the implantation of artificial joints (prosthetic implants) instead of patients’ own ones. This is an extreme measure that is used when other treatment options bring no benefits. Most often the surgery involves the knee or hip joint. Less often the ankle, shoulder, elbow, and also small joints of the hand and foot are replaced with the prostheses.

The surgery is performed under spinal or general anesthesia. Duration of the whole procedure is 1-2 hours. The prosthesis can be fixed with a cement or cementless method. Usually a cementless method of fixation is used when the bone is supposed to grow into the artificial joint after the surgery. But On the contrary, in patients with osteoporosis it is recommended to use a special cement compound to fix the prosthetic implants reliably.

The operation allows the patient to return to an active lifestyle within the shortest terms. A patient will no longer suffer from chronic pain. The mobility of the limb will be restored fully. In six months people will not even remember that an artificial joint is present in their body. Patients get the opportunity not only to walk without a cane and crutches, but also to be engaged in any kind of sports.

Indications

  • Osteoarthritis is the most common indication for replacement arthroplasty of any joint.
  • Bekhterev's disease (Marie-Strumpell disease)
  • Fracture of the femoral neck in elderly patients or in presence of osteoporosis.
  • Consequences of injuries.
  • Oncological diseases.
  • Irreversible joint damage or chronic pain syndrome due to any diseases: infectious, autoimmune, dysmetabolic.

Recovery

  • During the first day after the intervention a person moves with the help of a wheelchair. Bed rest regimen is indicated to the patient, although active movements in bed are allowed. Patient may start eating the same day in the evening.
  • During the first 2 weeks the patient stays in the hospital. He/she can move with the help of crutches or walkers. Doctors provide care for the postoperative wound. At the end of the early postoperative period seams are removed.
  • Within few days after the operation special exercises should be performed to speed up the recovery. Therapeutic physical training is used during all phases of rehabilitation, which lasts from 2 to 6 months.

Advantages of replacement arthroplasty in Germany

  • Availability of the newest and most reliable prosthetic implants that can serve for decades. Therefore, in the future you will not have to go through a re-intervention to replace the worn-out artificial joint.
  • Low risk of complications. Doctors in Germany make cuts of minimal size. For instance, the incision for the hip joint replacement is usually about 25 cm long. Modern interventions make it possible to place an implant with a cut of only 10 cm. Such a wound is healing much faster, and blood loss during surgery is minimal.
  • Quality of the post-operative care. Doctors and nurses carefully watch patients to avoid postoperative complications and speed up recovery. In the future a person can go through the orthopedic rehabilitation, which provides an opportunity to return to the active life in the shortest period of time.
