HOW DOES KNEE/ HIP REPLACEMENT IS?
The pain caused by osteoarthritis is a consequence of the wear of cartilage. The cartilage does not have nerve endings so when there is an injury it does not hurt. But when it disappears, it leaves exposed the bone that does have pain receptors and for this reason it causes so much pain and is so invalidating
Total Knee Replacement
The placement of a total knee prosthesis is to replace the damaged surfaces with a new joint that fulfills the same function. The joints are replaced both in the femur and in the tibia resting on healthy bone. Between these surfaces, a mobile material known as «polyethylene» is placed, which favors the wearing out of the new joint surfaces, which are a chromium-cobalt alloy.
The objective of placing a total knee prosthesis is to remove the pain and recover the functionality of the operated knee.
The expectation of most elderly people is that the prosthesis should not be changed for the rest of their life. It will provide years of well-being without pain, achievement otherwise impossible.
The future is very promising for those patients with a total knee prosthesis.
Total hip replacement
The total replacement of the hip is an operation aimed at replacing the hip joint that is damaged, usually by osteoarthritis. The hip joint is a spherical joint. The sphere is formed by the head of the thigh bone (Femur) and is perfectly articulated with the cavity in the pelvis (Acetabulum).
Arthrosis causes pain, deformity and loss of mobility.
In hip replacement surgery, the surgeon replaces the worn head of the hip bone (femur) with a metallic or ceramic sphere that is attached to a stem or stem, usually made of titanium. Place in the cavity of the pelvis (acetabulum) a dome made of a special plastic: polyethylene, ceramic, or metal, called a cup. The prosthesis can be anchored in the bone by means of a cement or be fixed by means of a snap fit without cement.
The materials used are designed to allow mobility similar to that of a normal joint, being durable and resistant to wear. The type of prosthesis used will depend on the patient’s age and physical conditions.
When the surgeon performs a hip replacement, it has four fundamental objectives:
- Pain relief.
- Recovery of mobility. The degree of recovery depends on how rigid the joint was before the intervention. Everyday activities should be able to be done without limitations: walking, dressing, driving a car … Depending on the age of the patient, practicing some sports should also be possible (walking, golf, cycling, swimming).
- Correction of the deformity, recovery of the length and correction of lameness.
- Maintenance of long-term results.
