Total Hip Replacement B/L

Total Hip Replacement B/L is an operation in which both hips are replaced. It is usually applied as a result of joint degeneration over time. Since the hip joint is a ball and socket type joint that allows the movements of the legs, it is extremely critical in terms of mobility.

The Procedure

In Total Hip Replacement B/L surgery, both hips are replaced with artificial prosthetic implants. This treatment is used to relieve hip pain and stiffness caused by hip arthritis. Sometimes it can be applied to treat a fracture or improperly growing hip problems and other conditions.

The hospital stay for Total Hip Replacement B/L surgery made under general anesthesia is 3 to 5 days.

Benefits

Total Hip Replacement B/L

  • Total Hip Replacement B/L surgeries are generally one of the most successful surgeries.
  • It can be an effective, safe, and permanent way to treat many of the problems that come with severe hip arthritis.
  • Almost all patients experience complete or substantial relief from arthritic hip pain.
  • In addition to reducing pain, it also provides significant benefits in terms of mobility. The healed hip will help the legs fulfill their function.
  • The data provided by the studies on this operation show that 80-85% of hip prostheses are still working within 20 years after insertion.

Risks And Side Effects

Total Hip Replacement B/L

  • It can not make possible some of the range of motion that the natural hip offers. Some extreme positions are not optimal because of the risk of hip joint dislocation.
  • In some cases, it can be seen that the lengths of a leg are not equal to each other after Total Hip Replacement B/L. However, these will be minor differences.
  • As in all surgeries, complications, excessive blood loss, blood clot, nerve damage are possible in Total Hip Replacement B/L surgery.

Total Knee Replacement B/L

The Total Knee Replacement B/L is a procedure in which both knees are replaced with an artificial prosthetic implant. The knee joint, which consists of various bones, ligaments, and cartilage, is of great importance in terms of leg movements as it connects the lower and upper leg bones.

The Procedure

Total Knee Replacement B/L is an orthopedic surgery made to replace the knee on both sides with artificial material. This surgery is often needed when osteoporosis or arthritis is severe enough to destroy the knee joints. Generally, this procedure is applied in case of cartilage abrasion.

Advantages

Total Knee Replacement B/L

  • The success rate of Total Knee Replacement B/L surgeries is extremely high.
  • Patients after surgery can easily perform daily activities such as walking, going up and down the stairs.
  • It is possible for the pains to heal or decrease significantly.

Risks and Side Effects

Total Knee Replacement B/L

  • Some extreme movements are limited according to the natural knee structure. For example, the squatting movement is not a desired movement, although it may be possible with some types of prostheses.
  • Clot formation may occur due to the decrease in blood flow rate in the veins. However, some measures are taken to prevent this situation, such as blood thinners.
  • Although it is very unlikely, there is also a risk of inflammation of the prosthesis.
  • As in all surgeries, complications, excessive blood loss, and nerve damage are possible in Total Knee Replacement B/L surgery.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction

The anterior cruciate ligament may be ruptured as a result of trauma, sometimes resulting in chronic knee instability. There is no possibility for spontaneous healing of a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.

The purpose of anterior cruciate ligament ligamentoplasty is to stabilize the knee, allowing sports and professional activities, and to protect it from arthrosis degradation too early.

The average hospital stay for the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction procedure made under general anesthesia in RECMED is 24-48 hours.

Advantages

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction

  • After the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction surgery, the patient can have normal knee function. Generally, sports and other physical activities that require a steady knee can be allowed.
  • This operation has a great success rate.

Risks and Side Effects

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction

  • Patients who do not follow the instructions after the surgery may need to be operated on their knees again in the future.
  • There may be allograft risks, including infection from tendons because of taken from a cadaver donor.
  • Growth problems may be observed after surgery in children whose growth plates are not closed. Therefore, it may be necessary to postpone the surgery to allow the growth plates to close.
  • Surgical risks are possible including bleeding, blood clots, and infection of the surgical area.

Disc Replacement (Cervical/Lumber)

Disc replacement is a surgical procedure in which damaged discs in the spine are replaced. When the discs between the vertebrae that make up the spine and that allow back movements are damaged, there will be pain and limitation of mobility.

The Procedure

The damaged disc is replaced with suitable material and thus pain is alleviated in Disc Replacement surgery. After the procedure is performed under general anesthesia, RECMED offers the best medical care facilities.

Advantages

Disc Replacement (Cervical/Lumber)

  • Disc Replacement (Cervical/Lumber) surgeries provide protection and maintenance of normal neck movement.
  • Damage and degeneration of other discs can be prevented significantly with Disc Replacement (Cervical/Lumber) surgery.
  • A little painful and a short recovery period is observed.

Risks and Side Effects

Disc Replacement (Cervical/Lumber)

  • Rarely, there may be implant complications.
  • Surgical risks are possible including bleeding, blood clots, fracture of the vertebrae, and infection of the surgical area which are also possible in other surgeries.
  • Rarely, the vertebra may break when the implant is placed or the vertebra may fracture in the postoperative period. If this occurs, corset immobilization may be sufficient, or revision surgery, including possible transformation into a spinal fusion, may be required.

Knee Arthroscopy

The Knee Arthroscopy technique is used for the diagnosis and treatment of problems such as torn anterior or posterior cruciate ligaments, meniscus rupture, damaged cartilage, bone fractures, and knee cysts.

The Procedure

It is a surgical technique in which a small camera called an arthroscope is inserted through a small opening in the knee. The Knee Arthroscopy procedure is used for the diagnosis and treatment of knee joint disorders. The procedure is followed by applying local or general anesthesia.

Advantages

Knee Arthroscopy

  • The recovery rate is extremely high.
  • It is effective in relieving knee pain and increasing mobility.

Risks and Side Effects

Knee Arthroscopy

  • Although the risk of complications is quite low, they are possible.
  • Depending on the condition of the patient and the joint, there may be risks such as swelling, stiffness, bleeding, blood clots, and infection in the joint.
