Knee Replacement Surgery Warsaw
Total Knee Replacement Warsaw Medi Horizon Clinic
People who constantly struggle with knee pain caused by diseases, injuries or age can undergo knee replacement surgery. When previous methods of treatment, rehabilitation or pharmacotherapy fail, knee replacement becomes necessary. This treatment not only improves the patient’s fitness, eliminates pain and is also a chance for a comfortable life. Knee joint replacement is an orthopedic implant made of body-friendly biomaterials. The use of the implant is intended to fill missing defects in the joint surface. Depending on the size of the defects in the knee cartilage, the damaged elements of the knee joint are replaced completely or partially. The result is the restoration of proper knee function.
A knee prosthesis is your chance to regain full fitness – according to research, over 90% of patients are satisfied with their functional status after the procedure.
Proper functioning of the knee joints determines good functioning and a pain-free life. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint is one of the most common diseases affecting middle-aged and older people. The disease leads to slow destruction of articular cartilage. Therefore, the joint loses its functions and becomes functionally ineffective. Knee endoprosthesis, i.e. implantation of an artificial joint, becomes necessary.
In our hospital, we perform minimally invasive knee replacement using an anterior approach.
This is an advanced method thanks to which the patient can walk on the same day and recovers faster. Additionally, there is no need for blood transfusion after the procedure. This method is used successfully all over the world. The advantages of knee replacement using an anterior approach are appreciated by all patients. This is a more advanced and minimally invasive method compared to the posterior approach arthroplasty method..
Knee replacement surgery at Medi Horizon Clinic is performed by experienced specialists in orthopedics.
