Knee Replacement Surgery Option In Mexicali, Mexico
At Da La Familia, your surgeon can choose from the different knee replacement surgery options, depending on your condition. These may include:
Total Knee Replacement Surgery
The surgeon replaces the damaged parts with artificial joints, usually covering the total knee.
Partial Knee Replacement Surgery
The surgeon will remove only a part of the knee and replace it with plastic or metal components in this surgery.
You have to spend only a little time at the hospital as the recovery process is faster.
Minimally Invasive Knee replacement
Minimally invasive knee replacement surgery involves minor tissue trauma and blood loss. There is less postoperative pain and requires smaller incisions.
Sometimes an existing knee replacement or prosthetics may get damaged. It can lead to painful swelling in your knees.
Your surgeon may recommend a second surgery, which usually involves replacing it with a new artificial replacement.
The recovery period is usually more extended, lasting between several days to even weeks.
Recovering Post Surgery
At Da La Familia, your assigned caregivers will assist you in testing your new knee by walking and stretching.
Though you might feel a bit of discomfort at the beginning, the pain will usually go off in 1-2 days.
You must also choose to have physiotherapy sessions to aid your healing.
In usual cases, you may need a walker or cane for mobility for the first few days or weeks.
With regular exercises and time, you will be comfortable enough to walk without assistance.
