Knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure that allows to replace the damaged parts of the knee joint with an artificial one and to return the range of motion necessary for a good lifestyle.
This method is used in situations where there is irreversible damage to the cartilage with persistent pain syndrome and restriction of movement. Diseases such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, post-traumatic injuries, and high-energy intraarticular fractures are indications for this manipulation.
Of the many operations, total joint arthroplasty is the main one, in which the surgeon removes the damaged joint components of the femur and tibia, implanting in their place the necessary elements of the endoprosthesis, which are selected according to the size of the patient individually. We use prostheses of such companies as DePuy Synthes (USA), Waldemar Link (Germany), MedActa (Switzerland), which have established themselves in the world market.
The rehabilitation period at the patient will pass actively for fast restoration as it concerns one of the main principles of restoration after endoprosthetics, thus accurately observing all recommendations of the doctor.
