How Long Does It Take to Recover After Knee Endoprosthesis Surgery?
How long before I can walk after knee endoprosthesis surgery? – is one of the most frequently asked questions by individuals considering knee replacement surgery in Warsaw. With the right surgical approach, a properly conducted operation, and guided patient rehabilitation, individuals typically regain functionality within approximately 2-4 weeks. The recovery duration depends on the patient’s health and progress in rehabilitation exercises prescribed by the physiotherapist.
Knee Endoprosthesis – When to Consider the Procedure?
Candidates for knee endoprosthesis are those suffering from knee joint degeneration or damage due to congenital or acquired factors. Those experiencing persistent knee pain should promptly seek a consultation with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Andrzej Suwara, who specializes in such procedures. Bringing knee X-rays or an MRI to the consultation aids in determining the appropriate treatment method and selecting the right knee endoprosthesis tailored to the patient’s lifestyle.
Knee Replacement Surgery – What Does the Procedure Involve?
After a consultation with specialist Dr. Andrzej Suwara, the patient undergoes qualifying tests (blood tests, EKG, chest X-ray) and consults with an anesthesiologist to choose optimal anesthesia. At Medi Horizon Clinic Warsaw, a focus on patient pain prevention is emphasized. The procedure, usually lasting around 2 hours, is performed under spinal or general anesthesia. Following the surgery, patients stay at Medi Horizon Clinic Warsaw for 3-4 days, receiving specialized care and daily rehabilitation exercises supervised by a physiotherapist. The patient is stabilized on the same day as the surgery. After leaving the hospital, continuing physiotherapy exercises 2-3 times a week for at least 2 weeks is recommended for full knee rehabilitation and a swift return to daily activities.
