ICJR Meet for Direct Anterior Approach in Total Hip Replacement Surgery

The smooth surface of the artificial implants just like normal knee, can allow for easy, painless movement.

Navigation (Orthopilot) uses infrared camera, computer with sophisticated software to provide the real time, patient specific information during surgery while virtually eliminating expensive and radiation intensive CT & MRI scans before the surgery.

Proven in U.S.A., Europe and Asia-Pacific for more than 100,000 knee implementations, Navigation (Orthopilot) enables the surgeon to consistently achieve results those are far more accurate that via conventional methods.

How does Navigation (Orthopilot) work

At the beginning of the operation surgeon strategically positions small transmitters on the patient’s leg. The surgeon then guides the leg through a series of prescribed movements which, in turn, are recorded by navigation’s infrared camera and transmitted to computer.

The Computer analysis those positions to create an anatomic “drawing” of the knee and updates this information throughout the procedure, displaying for the surgeon all relevant axes, angles distances. Analyzing and providing this constant data, navigation (Orthopilot) helps to guide the surgeon through bone cuts, implant positioning, soft tissue ligament balancing, and more, depending upon the operation. As our mission of continues improvement in surgical skills with all possible latest technology, we strive to make people to live normal life.

The Implants

The various parts of the implants are similar to your own knee. The tibia component sits on the top, and covers the tibia and similarly femoral component covers femur & patella component covers knee cap. The smooth surfaces of these components work together, as they glide and rotate and give pain free movements.

Total knee replacement surgery is performed on people suffering from severe arthritic conditions. Most of the people in the world who have artificial knees are over 55 years of age, but this surgery can be performed on younger patients also. The following indications suggest for total knee replacement surgery.

  • You have daily pain

  • Your pain is severe enough to restrict normal work and ordinary activities of daily living

  • You have significant stiffness in your knee joint

  • You have significant instability of your knee

  • You have significant deformity (bow legs of knock knee)

Preparing for total knee replacement Surgery

Medical Evolution: If you decide to have total knee replacement surgery, you may be asked to have a complete physical check up by your family physician several weeks before surgery to assess your health and to rule out any condition could interface with your surgery.

Tests: Several tests, such as blood samples, a cardiogram, and a urine sample may be needed to help your orthopedic surgeon plan your surgery.

Preparing Your Skin and Leg: Your knee and leg should not have any skin infection. Your lower leg should not have any chronic swelling. Contact your orthopedic surgeon prior o surgery if either is present for a program to best prepare your skin for surgery.

Blood Donation: You may be advised to donate your own blood prior to the surgery. It will be stored in the event you need blood after your surgery.

Medications: Tell your orthopedic surgeon about the medications you are taking. He or she will tell you which medications you should stop taking and which you should continue to take before surgery.

Dental Evaluation: Although the incidence of infection after knee replacement is very low, and infection can occur if bacteria enter your bloodstream. Treatment of significant dental diseases (including tooth extractions and periodontal work) should be considered before your total knee replacement surgery.

What is hospital stay after Knee Replacement Surgey  ?

  • Average hospital stay for 5 to 7 days.

  • Immediately after your knee replacement you may place your full weight on your new knee. Doctor will begin your therapy the day of your surgery and emphasize walking, regaining your range of motion and strengthening exercises.

  • Transfusions are occasionally needed during or after surgery. Your pain is controlled with injections and later by pain pills. Your discomfort should significantly decrease by the third day and only require pain pills before performing therapy.
