How it works ?

Knee prosthesis: stop joint pain

The knee prosthesis is a surgical procedure that aims to replace, by a prosthesis, the knee or part of the knee damaged by osteoarthritis. This procedure is performed in people over 60 years of age who suffer from severe and prolonged pain. The prosthesis decision as well as the type to be used are taken by the surgeon at first, who estimates the seriousness of the situation and then by the patient. The knee prosthesis eliminates pain and ensures normal knee function.

 

What Are the Different Types of Knee Replacement Surgery?

The main four types of knee replacement surgery are:

  • Total knee replacement
  • Partial knee replacement (unicompartimental)
  • Replacement of the patella (patellar arthroplasty)
  • Replacement of the complex knee or revision.

There are several types of joint knee replacement as well as different surgical methods. Your doctor and orthopedic surgeon should help you choose the best option for you, taking into account the condition of your knee and your general health.

 

Knee prosthesis: procedure of the intervention

The placement of prosthesis is a very important intervention that requires a lot of preparations:

  • Before the operation: a meeting with the surgeon and the anesthesiologist, as well as a detailed assessment and an X-ray are required to decide the size of prosthesis to achieve.
  • Intervention: the operation usually lasts 1h30 under total anesthesia. According to the assessment already made, the surgeon chooses a prosthesis from a dozen prostheses (usually composed of 4 elements) to replace the infected area.
  • After the operation: the operated person must stay at least one week after the operation under the supervision of doctor. Rehabilitation is mandatory for two to three weeks. The resumption of activities is carried out gradually after the first month of the operation.

Postoperative complications of knee prosthesis (in the medium and long term) can be in the form of persistent pain, fracture, infection, stiffness ... but the risk of death remains very rare.
