Joint replacement is one of the most frequently performed operations in orthopedics. This intervention is necessary in case of complete destruction of the hip or knee joint; the other joints of the upper and lower extremities are replaced less frequently. The most common indication for arthroplasty is severe arthrosis, a degenerative disease involving the destruction of articular cartilage.

Hip joint replacement

Hip arthroplasty in Germany is most often performed in patients with coxarthrosis. This disease develops very slowly, but steadily. It affects mainly the elderly people. The joint simply wears out. The cartilage is damaged, and its ability to regenerate is limited due to the lack of sufficient nutrition. There are no blood vessels inside the cartilage, and the nutrients are supplied through the joint capsule and synovial fluid. Therefore, metabolism in the cartilage tissue is extremely slow.

Hip arthroplasty in Germany is performed also for other indications. These may be a hip fracture in elderly patients with osteoporosis, traumatic injuries, and tumors.

Kinds of arthroplasty

The essence of the hip joint arthroplasty is that the person’s own tissues are removed and replaced with a prosthetic implant (endoprosthesis). This operation can be done by various methods. Hip replacement in Germany can be:

  • subtotal: when an artificial cervix and femoral head are installed, but the patient's own acetabulum remain (this articular surface is located on the pelvic bone);
  • total: the acetabulum is also replaced.

According to the method of fixation of the prosthesis, the hip joint arthroplasty can be cemented or cementless. The latter technique with the bone slowly growing into the endoprosthesis and fixing it is more common. However, in some patients the regenerative potential is limited, which is often due to the osteoporosis in the elderly. In such cases, cemented fixation is used where the implant is fixed to the bone with a special solution.

In Germany, arthroplasty can be both primary and secondary. Primary arthroplasty is the operation performed for the first time. Secondary arthroplasty is used in patients who have already undergone joint replacement earlier but for some reason the endoprosthesis is no longer functioning properly. The implant replacement in Germany is usually performed in cases when the first prosthesis installed was poor-quality, outdated, etc. Prostheses service life is about 10 years.

Replacing of the previously installed endoprosthesis is a much more difficult operation. It is not always successful. Therefore, it is crucial to choose a good clinic and a good doctor. In addition, it is necessary to install prosthesis of the best quality, with a service life of several decades.

Preparing for surgery

The patient undergoes a series of tests: routine clinical laboratory testing, infectious disease testing, ECG and photofluorography. Before arthroplasty, he undergoes a CT or MRI scan of the joint with the three-dimensional modeling of the area to be operated. This allows doctor to better plan the operation, reduce its duration and achieve better results.

Operation

Joint arthroplasty is performed under general anesthesia. The patient lies on his side. An incision is made along the joint. If a person is treated in Germany, he can expect that the soft tissue will be minimally damaged. Muscles are not dissected, but separated in a blunt way.

The surgeon removes affected joint structures. At the second stage of the operation, he installs an endoprosthesis. It consists of a head, leg, and the cup and liner. All sizes are selected for the patient individually. After the surgery both limbs must have equal length and the range of motion in the artificial joint should be full.

At the end of the surgery, the wound is sutured in layers. It is rinsed with antiseptic solutions to prevent infectious complications. In the postoperative period, a person receives antibiotics and anticoagulants to prevent thrombotic complications. On average, the whole operation lasts about 2 hours.

Treatment of knee joint in Germany

Often, it is necessary to replace the knee joint with an artificial prosthesis. This is indicated in gonarthrosis, joint destruction caused by rheumatoid arthritis, tumor or traumatic injuries.

In Germany, the treatment usually starts with less radical methods. There are various techniques for restoring the articular surface. They are effective for the second, and even sometimes for the third stage of osteoarthrosis. Cartilage is repaired with the use of stem cells or with transplanted ex-vivo-cultivated autologous (own) chondrocytes fixed on a collagen matrix.

However, patients with completely destroyed knee joint are treated in Germany only by the total knee replacement. Doctors implant high-quality endoprostheses that restore the full function of the limb after surgery. The fixation by cemented method is most commonly used, because it is more reliable.

Benefits of hip arthroplasty in Germany

Joint replacement surgery is available in almost all countries of the world. However, those people who can afford quality medical care try to be treated in Germany. And this is despite the fact that in German clinics prices for treatment are higher than in most European countries.

Medicine in this country is developed better. Arthroplasty in Germany has the following advantages:

High-quality implants. Modern joint implants with a service life of 30 years or more are used. Even if a hip replacement in Germany was performed at a young age, a re-operation is very likely to be never required. High wear resistance allows a person to stand any load after surgery, play sports, and at the same time maintain a high level of the artificial joint functionality.

Functional results. In the process of arthroplasty in Germany, prostheses are implanted ideally. As a result, a person can make all those movements that could be performed if he had his own joint. The only difference is that now he does not feel pain, crunch, and nothing more restricts physical activity of the patient.

Low traumatic operations. An artificial joint for arthroplasty in Germany is implanted through a much smaller incision than anywhere. This contributes to a faster healing of soft tissues. The early postoperative period is shortened. It is much better tolerated by the patient. In addition, blood loss and risk of infectious complications decrease.

High-quality rehabilitation. After replacing the hip joint in Germany, the patient can go through all the stages of recovery. Due to the early load on the operated limb, the implementation of special procedures and training, a person recovers much easier and faster. He quickly restores mobility, ability to self-service and working capacity.

Travel to Germany for treatment

The patient, who has decided to undergo arthroplasty in Germany, will face many difficulties. After all, he needs to choose a good clinic, a good doctor.
