Artificial Hip Joint - Total Hip Arthroplasty

            Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty:

Minimal invasive Technique: Smaller skin incision compared to standard procedure. No detaching of muscle insertions around the hip.

Revision-Surgeries:

Revision surgeries are needed if patient already had one or more unsuccessful hip surgeries. Some causes for revision could be: instabilities (dislocation of the hip), deep infections, aseptic loosening of the prosthesis, metal allergies etc.

For the revision the reconstruction of the revised hip is done by the use of different kinds of cups, bone preserving techniques, back filling of different bone defects by means of metal wedges and special made individual 3D printing prosthesis.

 

Artificial Knee Joint - Total Knee Arthroplasty

            Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty:

Patient specific cutting blocks - this is a surgical method using image based navigation together with an individual customized cutting block.

Standard procedure with standard instruments 

 Revision-Surgeries:

Revision surgeries are needed if patient already had one or more failed total knee arthroplasties. Some causes could be: instabilities (insufficient ligaments), deep infections, aseptic loosening of the prosthesis, metal allergies, periprosthetic fractures etc.

In case of a revision surgery the usage of stemmed prosthesis for better bony fixation is preferred. To reconstruct insufficient ligaments, this kind of prosthesis has different couple mechanisms (degree of constraint). For bony reconstruction, different metal blocks (augments) can help to cover bone defects.
