It is a Total Knee Replacement also known as "Outpatient Knee Replacement", "Rapid-Recovery Knee Replacement,", and "Ambulatory Knee Replacement.", where patient can be discharged home on the same day after surgery. The post-surgical recovery is fast with minimal pain and complications due to the minimally invasive technique.
The surgery is performed by using a minimally invasive technique where the muscles and tendons surrounding the knee are spared while inserting a knee replacement implant through a 3 to 5 inches long incision. Patient is discharged on the same day after surgery and prescribed pain medications to avoid any complications and discomfort.
Same-Day Knee Replacement is not an age specific procedure. The procedure is suitable for anyone suffering from constant knee pain, inability to walk or stand and limited knee movement after failed medication therapy and physiotherapy.
The preparation of my surgery was easy, Just like any Day-Case Operation. I did not expect to walk so soon and immediately after the surgery. I only heard about it on the news. The traditional operation comes with a lot of suffering. You would not be able to bend your knee for months after the procedure, Maybe years, Even. Now, thankfully I can bend my knee and walk immediately after the operation
I had immense pain in my left knee, due to which I was unable to offer prayer without a chair. I could not do my daily activities and had sleepless nights. I visited Dr Muthana Sartawi at Adam Vital Hospital, and he explained to me his new technique for Knee Joint Replacement surgery. This new technique preserves the muscles and tendons surrounding the knee, decreasing post-surgical pain and accelerating recovery. Immediately after 2 hours of the surgery, I could pray without the chair and discharge from the hospital on the same-day.
