IF KNEE OR HIP PAIN THAT DOES NOT GO AWAY

The hip and knee joints, which pull the whole load of the body while standing and allow you to perform actions such as sitting, getting up and bending down, are among the most commonly used body areas in daily life. For this reason, knee and hip joint problems appear as problems that significantly reduce the quality of life.

Pain in the knee and hip can occur for different reasons. Sometimes medication, a needle, or physical therapy may be sufficient to solve these problems, and sometimes surgery may be required. Robot technology, which has become the leading technology in hip and knee joint prosthesis surgeries in recent years, makes significant contributions to the patient with higher patient comfort and faster recovery time. Turkey Medicals member and hospital department head Specialists of the Department of Robotic Prosthetic Surgery gave information about knee and hip problems and treatment methods.

KNEE AND HIP PROBLEMS CAN BE EXPERIENCED DUE TO MANY REASONS

Osteoarthritis muscle popularly known as decalcification, is one of the causes of knee pain that can also occur as a result of incorrect shoe selection, obesity, weak muscles, unconscious sports. In addition, rheumatic diseases, infections, cartilage problems, knee ligament injuries and meniscus damage can also cause knee pain. Hip pain can be caused by osteoarthritis (calcification), osteoarthritis (joint calcification), trauma and fractures, muscle problems, hip dislocations and various infections. Although knee and hip problems are usually seen at an advanced age, they can occur at any age for various reasons.

.
TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT SHOULD NOT BE DELAYED IN PATIENTS WHO NEED SURGERY

Arthritis, hip dislocation, and the shifting of growth plates, such as childhood diseases, rheumatic diseases, sequelae of inflammation, tumors, blood flow problems in the presence of advanced age with hip fractures after bone necrosis, joint wear, which is seen in the early stages of drugs, physical therapy, PRP, stem cell, such as intra-articular injections, such as the use of a cane treated with surgery, according to the complaint, and the state of progress of the disease can be applied. However, total hip replacement surgery should be performed without delay for non-surgical treatments that cannot be achieved or for advanced hip joint abrasions (calcification). Because both knees, which are intact when treatment is delayed, run the risk of serious calcification and deterioration in the other hip and even waist area. Since more load will be placed on intact areas, delaying the operation also creates the possibility that these places will be operated on in the future.

.
TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT FOR PATIENTS WHO DO NOT BENEFIT FROM MEDICATIONS, PHYSICAL THERAPY APPLICATIONS, PRP OR STEM CELLS

Knee pain is especially common in middle and old age. If knee pain does not go away despite non-surgical treatments such as medications, physical therapy applications, intra-articular injections such as PRP or stem cells, cane use, a total or partial knee replacement may be a suitable option. Total and partial knee replacement is defined as a surface coating technique consisting of special alloy metals and a compressed special implant of the worn knee joint. The purpose of knee replacement surgery is to cut off contact between the decayed joint surfaces; the fact is that the patient can walk as much as he wants, without suffering from pain, and climb up and down stairs.

.
ROBOT TECHNOLOGY CAN BE APPLIED IN ALL HIP AND KNEE SURGERIES

Today, with the help of robot technology, it can be applied in all basic joint prosthetic surgeries called total hip, total knee and half (partial) knee in the field of orthopedics and traumatology with robot technology. It is also expected to be used in shoulder, spine and tumor surgeries in the near future. “The robotic arm-Assisted orthopaedic surgery system is defined as” the method of computerized control and routing module to the main unit with camera and display stand three of thanks, physicians, case for patient-specific pre-surgical planning by doing a practice in addition to accurate and precise, and to be able to get the same result after each case, the rapid improvement of the patient, such as improvements in quality of life has many advantages.

.
IT OFFERS SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGES

The advantages of “Robotic Prosthetic Surgery” are listed as follows:

– The patient’s own CT (Computer Tomography) scan is created on a 3-dimensional model made on the basis of advanced preoperative planning specific to the patient, which helps to position the implant most accurately in the patient. This, in turn, ensures greater protection of soft tissues in the patient compared to the classical method.

– Implant (prosthesis) placement is provided in the best way.

– For physicians, thanks to the advanced haptic feedback technology it contains, incorrect and extra incisions are prevented, as well as providing more precise control and confidence to the physician himself.

– It is ensured that patients achieve better and faster mobility after the procedure compared to classical (manual) surgical methods.

– It is expected that the life of the implants placed in the patient will be higher than in classical surgeries. In other words, the risk of wear and loosening of the prosthesis may be less.

– Robotic arm-assisted orthopaedic surgery system, classical (manual) technique is used less pain medication in the postoperative period compared to less soft tissue damage and patient satisfaction is higher.

– Surgeries performed with robotic arm supported orthopedic surgery system have advantages for the patient and the physician separately compared to classical surgeries. Patients may have a higher chance of insertion with greater mobility than with conventional methods. On the other hand, physicians can perform more controlled surgery thanks to the robotic arm.

– It is expected that the quality of life during the recovery period will be higher and the return to daily life will be shorter.
