Knee Surgery

Knee Surgery at CortoClinics

Your orthopedic surgeon will be implanting a new knee in a surgical operation. At CortoClinics, the surgery takes about an hour. You will be anesthetized for the duration of the surgery with either local (epidural or spinal) or general anesthesia.

The orthopedic surgeon starts by removing the damaged bone and cartilage. He then reshapes the bones of the upper and lower leg so that the implant fits them perfectly. The surgeon bonds the metal components of the knee prosthesis with fast-curing bone cement. He will also insert a plastic disc between them. After that, the incision is stitched and bandaged.

Latest Healthcare Technology Used for Knee Replacements

CortoClinics deploys robotic-arm assisted technology in its knee surgeries: the Mako system. This robotic arm helps the orthopedic surgeon accurately position the knee implant, producing results with a margin of error of less than a millimeter. The Mako robotic arm has another important advantage: the knee implant can be placed using minimally invasive surgery. With this technique, the incision needed is smaller than with traditional knee replacement surgery. Equally important, there is less damage to the surrounding soft tissue, such as tendons and muscles. That means you recover faster.

How long does knee surgery take?

The knee replacement procedure takes about an hour. You then spend the night at the CortoClinics clinic, before immediately returning home the next morning. To achieve optimal results from your knee surgery, you must work on your recovery at home. You will do this together with your physical therapist.
