Frequently Asked Questions:
When you should decided to do revision knee replacement?
Knee realloplasty is performed in four key cases:
-When part or all of the endoprosthesis has loosened
-When cracks appear around the denture
-When the denture has moved (feeling of falling out)
-When infection occurred as a result of implantation.
All these situations cause many different pain sensations for the patient, they may include: pain in the knee area, problems with moving, problems with sitting and getting up. A patient who already has a knee prosthesis knows perfectly well what movements he can perform and which ones should be avoided, however, there are situations in which a patient with a prosthesis has an accident or injury and then a knee replacement is required.
What are the benefits of revision knee replacement surgery?
Revision knee replacement is a chance for a comfortable, pain-free life.
Knee joint revision is performed without complications in 95% of cases and is successful for many patients. It can be expected that the replaced knee prosthesis will reduce pain and increase the mobility and function of the knee joint. A well-performed procedure and, above all, post-treatment rehabilitation can enable the patient to be able to walk, swim or ride a bike comfortably.
What are the diagnostics for knee replacement surgery?
During the consultation, the orthopedist will answer all your questions.
At the Medi Horizon Clinic Orthopedic Clinic, the patient is referred primarily to a consultation with an orthopedic specialist. Therefore, for complete diagnosis, we recommend performing an X-ray examination of the knee joint in two planes. During the consultation visit, the orthopedic surgeon diagnoses the patient in detail and conducts the entire surgical procedure for replacing the knee joint endoprosthesis. Once the patient has been qualified for knee revision surgery by an orthopedic surgeon, he or she is asked to perform a full set of diagnostic blood tests and is then referred for a consultation with an anesthesiologist. Medi Horizon Clinic patients have the opportunity to undergo tests qualifying them for knee replacement surgery on-site at the Clinic.
How is revision knee replacement performed??
The Revision knee replacement procedure is performed in the operating theater.
Replacement of a knee prosthesis is a surgical procedure that involves replacing the damaged knee prosthesis that the patient already has with a new prosthesis. This procedure is much more difficult and demanding for the orthopedist, due to: to the fact that it is a replacement of the prosthesis. The revision knee replacement surgery is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes about 2 hours. On the day of the procedure, the patient receives full antibiotic protection and antithrombotic prophylaxis. After the procedure, the patient stays in the clinic under the care of qualified medical staff and receives painkillers to be able to recover comfortably after the procedure.
Convalescence after revision knee replacement
Recovery after surgery is an individual matter for each patient.
After revision knee replacement surgery, it is recommended to cool the knee area to reduce post-operative tissue swelling and pain. Fast recovery after surgery is related to the recommendations of the orthopedist and rehabilitation. After the procedure, there may be swelling in the joint, causing discomfort that disappears within a few days after the procedure. Knee rehabilitation involves improving the range of motion in the joint and strengthening the muscles. Already on the second day after the procedure, the patient is stabilized and begins rehabilitation exercises. Medi Horizon Clinic cooperates with experienced and qualified physiotherapists who constantly improve their competences. Thanks to close cooperation between the orthopedic doctor, the rehabilitator and the patient, rehabilitation after endoprosthesis surgery brings very good results and helps patients regain full mobility faster.
