Meniscus surgery is one of leading directions in the German orthopedics. The information about clinics that offers the most effective methods of surgery is given below.
Arthroscopy is a new direction in surgery, which has a lot of advantages over old treatment methods, applicable well beyond Germany.
Arthroscopic meniscus surgeries are usually carried out without wide dissection of the joint capsule. In order to gain access to the knee structures a surgeon performs two punctures in the affected area.
Arthroscopic surgeries are often conducted using a special apparatus arthroscope. It is made as a tube, with a camera and a source of light on its end. Arthroscope camera delivers a high-quality image to the screen in front of a doctor. Having big experience in meniscus surgery, a doctor quickly and effectively performs surgery, and finishes it by stitching wounds with several sutures.
After an arthroscopic surgery, patients have fast motor activity volume recovery in the knee. What’s more important the risk of any surgery complications comes to naught.
Arthroscopic surgeries are usually performed under local or general anesthesia. Duration of surgical intervention depends on the meniscus injury degree and the type of a particular surgery.
Meniscus surgeries are intended to its recovery and are performed for fresh knee injuries. Meniscus recovery is possible only on medical grounds that take into account the time when injury happened and the degree of joint damage.
If meniscus injuries are new and located near good blood circulation areas, the meniscus surgery is carried out using damaged lips stitching.
German clinics use good suture material, which provides healing. The fact that doctors in Germany have a great experience is an advantage of this kind of meniscus surgery, because even when damage is major, German doctors successfully carry out surgeries when other doctors admit defeat.
Meniscus recovery in German clinics is conducted using arthroscopy. Our patients are able to move knee joints the day after the surgery and can easily walk a month later. Full recovery comes in 6 month after interventions on the meniscus.
Removal of the meniscus is usually seriously damaged during the surgery. In Germany doctors use sparing treatment approaches. They always try to damage as few as possible healthy knee areas, removing only devitalized tissues. That is why the result after the meniscus surgery, performed by German surgeons, always exceeds expectations.
Removal is performed through the meniscus arthroscopy intervention. In virtue of this a patient recovers quickly and can go home within a few days.
Of course, meniscus removal is not the best choice to restore knee function. For this reason Germany clinics carry out the transplantation of this structure. German doctors use natural and artificial time-proved implants. Given that every clinic in Germany yearly conducts thousands of such surgeries, so patients shouldn’t worry about the expertise of their doctors and about meniscus surgeries effectiveness.
Meniscus surgery with natural implant has more favorable outcome, because patients in this case have less rejections. In addition, the natural structure survives better and quickly ensures the normal motor activity in the knee.
Transplantation of synthetic materials that is carried out in Germany is also an extremely effective procedure. Surgical meniscus intervention using arthroscopy fastens favorable regenerative process.
