Prosthetic Surgery

Here the operations performed in outpatient clinics, that is interventions that do not require hospitalization and with a quick postoperative recovery:

  • Knee arthroscopy
  • Shoulder arthroscopy
  • Small interventions on the hand and foot.


Here the interventions we perform in day-hospital, providing a short observation and discharge in the same of the operation or the following day:

  • Cruciate ligament reconstruction
  • Rotator cuff open surgery.

 

1,127 admissions in 2014
661 prostheses

The main clinical activities include the major prosthetic surgery.

For hip prosthetic interventions we perform traditional operations with traditional back-lateral access approach, with minimally invasive anterior access; we use uncemented, hybrid or totally cemented implants; surfacing prostheses; we use metal-polyethilene, metal on metal, ceramic on ceramic and ceramic-polyethilene.

 

The revision of hip prosthesis are carried out with revision materials or with antibiotic cement spacers, if results of septic phenomena are present.

As far as knee prosthesis are concerned, we carry out total prosthesis with median peripatellar incision, minimally invasive incision for unicompartmentmental knee prosthesis (locked and unlocked plate), femoral-patellar prosthesis.

For the prosthesis of shoulder we perform interventions with anatomic or reverse prosthesis depending on the type of osteoarthritis.

For prosthesis interventions we have a Recovery Room where patients can be observed after the intervention.

 

Evaluation of postoperative blood loss after total knee prosthesis surgery using Aquamantys tool for intraoperative coagulation.

Compared evaluation of gonathrosis treatment analyzing two groups of patients treated with infiltrative therapy with hyaluronic acide and infiltrative biological therapy (PRP). Evaluation study on a group of patients undergoing total hip implantation with biological treatment of stem cells of bone-acetabular interface.
