Arthroscopic surgery for traumatic injuries and diseases of the joints
- these are surgical interventions through several punctures of the skin above the joint under the control of a video camera.
An enlarged image of the internal structure of the joint is displayed on the monitor, and the orthopedic surgeon uses special tools to perform manipulations inside the joint with high accuracy and minimal tissue injury.
Arthroscopic operations are best performed because:
✔ surgical intervention more precisely ✔ tools for small-size arthroscopic operations, which improves the quality of the operation and reduces injury to the joint tissues ✔ operation without contact of the joint with the environment-reduces the risk of postoperative infection ✔ without injuring soft tissues with surgical hooks for diluting the edges of the wound ✔ accelerated healing period and hospital stay ✔ postoperative scars are much less noticeable after healing – women will be able to wear short skirts without stress.
The vast majority of surgical procedures in our center are performed arthroscopically.
Preparation for the operation in our center
✔ the patient is assigned a date of hospitalization ✔ before the operation, the patient: passes tests and makes examinations, the full list of which is determined individually ✔ hospitalization on the morning of the operation ✔ examination by an anesthesiologist, making a decision on the optimal method of anesthesia ✔ the patient is taken to the operating unit, the anesthesiologist performs intravenous administration of anesthesia or spinal anesthesia.
In our center there are 2 anesthesiologists who know all the methods of anesthesia and are focused on working with orthopedic patients. The optimal method of anesthesia is chosen by the anesthesiologist taking into account many factors and is previously discussed with both the orthopedist and the patient.
The use of anesthesia in our time is not dangerous for the patient's body.
During anesthesia, the doctor constantly monitors the vital signs and the amount of drugs, depending on the duration of the surgical intervention.
It is impossible to wake up during the operation.
After the operation, after a certain time, the effect of the drug ends, and the patient wakes up.
During spinal anesthesia, a local anesthetic solution is injected into the subarachnoid space located in the spinal canal. As a result, there is anesthesia of the lower half of the body or one leg. The introduction of a local anesthetic is carried out below the end of the spinal cord, the injury of the latter during spinal anesthesia is excluded. The dose of the anesthetic is so small that it can be compared to anesthesia in dentistry.
3-7 minutes after the introduction of a local anesthetic, there is a temporary blockage of the nerve fibers that innervate the lower half of the body or one leg, which is accompanied by a feeling of warmth, numbness, decreased sensitivity and relaxation of the muscles of the lower extremities. The duration of action, depending on the chosen anesthetic, can be from 4 to 6 hours.
