Меня зовут Бегенч я из Туркменистана. В июне 2016 у среднего сына была травма колена. Повредил во время тренировки по футболу. Он у меня планирует заниматься им профессионально. Наши Ашкабадские врачи предложили оперировать но после нее сын пог бы позабыть о спорте. В итоге решили ехать в Турцию. Ромой подсказали нам родственники, которые были уже у них на лечении. После предварительной операции врач тоже пришел к мнению проведения оперции но в отличии колег из Туркменистана он обещал что операция (ортроскопия ) никак не повлияет на его будующую карьеру. Слово врачи сдержали. правда понадобилась двух месячная физиотерапия но результатом мы однозначно довольны. Бегенч Атамурадов

Nas djecak Hamza je bio bezbrizan i kao vecina djece igrao je fudbal sa drugarima. Nazalost jedan dan je dosao sa povredom i tada je sve krenulo naopako. Vodili smo ga u bolnicu u Sarajevo i rekli su nam da oni ne smiju izvesti tu operaciju, na vrhuncu ocaja smo saznali za Romoy. Imam samo rijeci hvale za njih, ni jedne sekunde nas nisu ostavili same i pruzili su nam neogranicenu podrsku. Zahvaljujuci vama nas Hamza opet bezbrizno trckara sa drugarima. Hvala Vam !

What is Knee Replacement Surgery?

A knee replacement is a surgical procedure involving the replacement of the faulty knee joint with a prosthetic. During a total knee replacement, the end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a plastic piece containing a metal stem. Depending on the condition of the kneecap portion of the knee joint, a plastic "button" may also be added under the kneecap surface.

 

A Good Candidate for Knee Replacement Surgery

Good candidates for knee replacement surgery include patients who may be suffering from the following symptoms:

 

· Severe knee pain that limits their everyday activities, including walking, climbing stairs, and getting in and out of chairs

· Patients who may find it hard to walk more than a few blocks without significant pain or need to use a cane.

· Moderate or severe knee pain while resting, either day or night

· Chronic knee inflammation and swelling that does not improve with rest or medications

· Knee deformity: a bowing in or out of your knee

· Knee stiffness: inability to bend and straighten your knee

· Failure to obtain pain relief from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

· These medications, including aspirin and ibuprofen, often are most effective in the early stages of arthritis. Their effectiveness in controlling knee pain varies greatly from person to person. These drugs may become less effective for patients with severe arthritis

· Failure to substantially improve with other treatments such as cortisone injections, physical therapy, or other surgeries

 

Knee Replacement Surgery Procedure

Knee replacement surgery requires general anesthesia. Once you are under general sedate, an 8-12 inch incision is made in the front of the knee. The damaged part of the joint is removed from the surface of the bones; the surfaces are shaped to hold a metal or plastic artificial joint. The artificial joint is attached to the thigh bone, shin and knee cap either with cement or a special material. When fit together, the attached artificial parts form a joint, relying on the surrounding muscles and ligaments for support and function.
