  • Surgery approach

    Total knee replacement, also known as knee arthroplasty, offers a transformative solution for those battling conditions like osteoarthritis. The procedure involves replacing damaged bone and cartilage in the knee with high-quality artificial implants made of metal and polyethylene.

    Under spinal anaesthesia for your comfort, the surgery employs the Subvastus approach. Your knee is bent at 90 degrees, and a 15-25 cm incision is made to expose the kneecap. The surgeon then moves the kneecap aside to access the joint, meticulously removing the damaged cartilage and bone from the femur and tibia.

    High-quality metal implants are affixed to the femur and tibia, recreating the joint surface. A polyethylene spacer is inserted between these components to mimic natural cartilage, reducing friction and enhancing movement. If the kneecap has deteriorated, it’s resurfaced with a polyethylene implant.

    Post-surgery, damaged tissues are repaired, and excess fluid is drained. You’ll be transferred to the recovery area, where you’ll wake up from the spinal anaesthesia in a controlled environment. Our mission extends beyond mere pain relief; we’re committed to top-notch orthopaedic care, empowering you to return to an active lifestyle.

  • What´s included

    Online Meeting: Before your surgeon consultation, you’ll meet with our Patient Experience Manager to address question and to request your medical history, needed to ensure that both the surgeon and their team can thoroughly assess your case.

    Online Consultation: After a thorough review of your case, you’ll discuss surgical options, benefits, and risks during your initial consultation with your surgeon. Upon mutual agreement on the treatment, our Patient Experience Manager will outline contracts and payment details.

    Preoperative Preparation: Surgeon’s team will guide you through preoperative steps, including educational courses, tailored physiotherapy exercises, follow-up meetings and advice on preparing your home environment for post-surgery recovery.

    Surgical Procedure: You’ll undergo pre-admission tests to confirm readiness. Once cleared, your surgery will take place. After the procedure you’ll start your recovery in the Post-Anaesthesia Care Unit before transitioning to a private room for further evaluations and tailored therapy sessions.

    Rehab and Follow-Up: Post-discharge, you’ll attend scheduled rehab appointments and a follow-up visit for stitch removal. Online sessions with the surgeon and physiotherapist will be available to ensure smooth ongoing recovery.

FAQ's

How long does a knee replacement last?

A knee replacement typically lasts between 15 to 20 years. The longevity of the implant can be influenced by several factors, including your activity level, weight, and overall health. Regular check-ups and maintaining a balanced lifestyle can help prolong the life of your knee replacement.

What does arthritis in the knee feel like?

Arthritis in the knee can lead to persistent aching pain, stiffness, and swelling. These symptoms might become more noticeable after physical activity or after periods of rest. Weather changes can also exacerbate the discomfort, with many patients reporting increased pain during colder months.

How long to recover from knee replacement?

Recovery times can vary, but generally, you may be able to resume light physical activities 3 to 6 weeks post-surgery. Full recovery can take from 3 to 6 months, or even up to a year in cases where extensive physiotherapy is needed. It’s important to remember that each individual’s recovery journey is unique and influenced by their overall health and commitment to the rehabilitation process.

How long does knee replacement surgery take?

Knee replacement surgery typically takes about 1 to 2 hours. The exact duration can vary based on the complexity of the patient’s condition, the surgical technique used, and the patient’s overall health. This timeframe does not include preparation and recovery time.

How bad does a knee have to be before replacement?

Knee replacement is usually considered when severe knee pain or stiffness interferes with daily activities like walking or climbing stairs. If you experience moderate to severe knee pain while resting, either during the day or at night, it might be time to consider knee replacement. Always consult your healthcare provider for a personalised evaluation.

What are knee replacements made of?

Knee replacements consist of three main parts: a femoral component made of a cobalt-chromium or titanium alloy, a tibial component which includes a metal platform and a plastic insert made from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, and, if used, a patellar component made of durable plastic like polyethylene. These materials are chosen for their strength, durability, and biocompatibility.

What are the signs of knee replacement failure?

Signs of knee replacement failure may include increased pain or swelling, decreased mobility, knee stiffness, or a feeling of instability. It’s essential to contact your surgeon if you notice any of these signs as they may indicate a need for medical intervention.

When will my knee replacement feel normal?

Most patients experience a significant improvement in pain and function around six weeks after surgery. However, it may take up to three to six months for the knee to feel ‘normal’, as your body adjusts to the new joint and healing progresses.

Can you damage a knee replacement?

While knee replacements are designed to be robust, they can be damaged by severe impacts, falls, or excessive wear and tear. To help prolong the life of your knee replacement, it’s beneficial to maintain a healthy weight and be mindful of your physical activities.

What happens if you wait too long for knee replacement?

Delaying a necessary knee replacement can lead to decreased mobility and a reduced quality of life due to persistent pain. Additionally, prolonged suffering can make the surgery more complex or less effective as the joint continues to deteriorate. Early intervention can enhance outcomes and hasten recovery.
