Frequently Asked Questions:
What is total hip replacement?
Total Hip replacement in Poland via the direct anterior approach is a surgical procedure that involves the use of an artificial joint (endoprosthesis) in the affected area. Thanks to this, the natural functions of the joint are restored, and the patient regains freedom of movement, gets rid of pain and returns to normal functioning after a few months. The surgery involves removing the used hip structures and replacing them with a hip prosthesis. Endoprostheses are made of safe metals that have no effect on the body, so the risk of implant rejection is minimal. The total hip replacement consists of a stem – which is inserted into the medullary canal of the femur, and a spherical head is mounted on it, intended to replicate the acetabulum. It allows you to perform movements in all planes.
What are the indications for total hip replacement?
- advanced degenerative changes of the hip joint of various causes,
- fracture of the neck of the femur,
- pain, problems with movement,
- accidents, injuries, comminuted fractures,
- congenital hip dysplasia,
- pathological changes occurring as a result of diseases – rheumatoid arthritis, gout,
- femoral bone necrosis,
When should you decide to undergo total hip replacement surgery using an direct anterior approach?
Patients who come to Medi Horizon Clinic Warsaw Poland complain of pain in the groin and hip, which occurs when walking and after getting up from a sitting position. The longer the patient delays hip replacement surgery, the more the pain begins to intensify and may radiate to the knee. The pain also appears at night when lying down, so it accompanies the patient all the time. Over time, a patient with hip degeneration tries to protect the painful leg, and thus begins to limp (with a characteristic gait) and has problems with movement. This should be a final signal for the patient that the intervention of an orthopedic specialist regarding hip replacement is necessary.
In such cases, it is important to consult an orthopedist when the above pain symptoms occur.
How does the procedure of hip endoprosthesis implantation with an anterior approach proceed?
At Medi Horizon Clinic Warsaw, our motto is, above all, patient safety at every stage of treatment. Therefore, qualification for the procedure depends on adequate preparation, which includes performing the necessary tests to eliminate possible contraindications. When the doctor determines that the patient’s health condition is appropriate, he sets a date for the procedure.
Total hip replacement direct approach surgery is performed under general or spinal or general anesthesia and usually takes about 2 hours. The orthopedist cuts the skin and fascia, and the muscles are opened – without damaging the muscles. After selecting the appropriate size of the hip prosthesis, it is placed in the appropriate place and the muscles are released. On the day of the procedure, the patient undergoes the necessary antithrombotic prophylaxis.
After the surgery, he remains in the clinic under the care of qualified medical staff who supervise every stage of his recovery. The next stage is rehabilitation, which takes place in stages – the patient gradually puts weight on the operated limb, learns to perform everyday activities, so as to return to full fitness in a dozen or so weeks. It is very important to strictly follow the doctor’s recommendations in the postoperative period.
What is the recovery like after the total hip replacement?
Thanks to total hip replacement surgery with an anterior approach, the recovery and rehabilitation time is much shorter compared to hip endoprosthesis surgery with a posterior approach. Properly conducted rehabilitation is very important in the entire recovery process. It begins almost immediately after the surgery. Already on the first day after anterior approach hip endopiotesoplasty, the patient is placed in an upright position and learning how to load the operated limb and walk properly begins.
