Hip: Hip arthroplasty
In cases of constant pain and significantly reduced mobility in osteoarthritis, the only treatment that brings relief of symptoms is joint replacement. The surgery involves a complete resection of damaged or worn articular surface of the joint socket and replaces them with an artificial implant, made of materials resistant to wear and causing no negative reactions in the body. The patient receives detailed information on the type of prosthesis and the type of material from which it is made during their visit to the doctor's office. Depending on the patient's age and medical indications for implants, they are mounted without using adhesives - the so-called cementless prosthesis - or by using bone cement - the so-called cemented prosthesis. Currently, the age of the patients eligible for surgery with the use of cementless prosthesis has been moved to 60 - 70 years of age (patients qualified are sometimes even older). Permanent connections of cementless prosthesis are established with time, when the bone covers the porous material covering the prosthesis. During the surgery, the prosthesis is mounted using the so-called "tight fit". Arthroplasty is still a rapidly growing area of orthopaedics. Newer, more anatomical and stronger elements of artificial joints are constantly being produced. However, there are still problems with wearing of the surfaces that cooperate with each other, loosening (loss of connection with the bone) and rare cases of intolerance. In our Clinic, we use only the prosthesis made by the leading manufacturers - which is to ensure the complete safety of our patients and a long-term satisfaction after the surgery implantation of an artificial joint.
