Orthopaedics & Joint Replacement

Medaz Hospital’s orthopaedics & joint replacement department is a specialized unit that focuses on the surgical replacement of damaged or diseased joints with artificial joints. These procedures are typically performed on joints such as the hip, knee, or shoulder.

The process of joint replacement surgery typically begins with a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon. During this consultation, the surgeon will assess the patient’s medical history and perform a physical examination to determine the best course of treatment. If joint replacement surgery is deemed necessary, the surgeon will discuss the details of the procedure with the patient and answer any questions they may have.

Before the surgery, the patient may need to undergo certain tests, such as X-rays or MRI scans, to assess the condition of the joint and help the surgeon plan the surgery. The patient may also need to follow certain pre-surgery instructions, such as stopping certain medications or avoiding certain foods or drinks.

On the day of the surgery, the patient will be given general anesthesia to make them sleep through the procedure. The surgeon will then make an incision over the joint and remove the damaged or diseased joint. The artificial joint, which is typically made of metal or plastic, is then placed in the joint and secured in place with screws or cement. The incision is then closed with stitches or staples.

After the surgery, the patient will be taken to the recovery room to be monitored until they are awake and alert. They will then be transferred to a hospital room for further recovery. Physical therapy may be started shortly after the surgery to help the patient regain strength and mobility in the joint.

The length of the hospital stay after joint replacement surgery can vary, but it is typically around 3-5 days. After being discharged from the hospital, the patient may need to continue physical therapy as an outpatient for several weeks or months. The patient will also need to follow certain post-surgery instructions, such as avoiding certain activities or taking medications as prescribed.

Overall, the orthopaedics & joint replacement department of Medaz Hospital is responsible for performing surgeries to replace damaged or diseased joints with artificial joints. These procedures can help to improve mobility and reduce pain in patients with conditions such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
