About the Total Knee Replacement B/L

Total knee replacement, also known as Total knee arthroplasty. It is a surgical procedure in which a damaged or diseased knee joint is replaced with an artificial joint or prosthesis. This procedure is typically performed to alleviate pain and improve the function of the knee when conservative treatments have been unsuccessful.

Total knee replacement surgery is generally effective in relieving pain and improving the quality of life for individuals with severe knee joint problems.

A bilateral knee replacement surgery is performed when both knees are damaged or diseased. If only one knee is affected, then the surgeon recommends the patient undergo the replacement of just one knee, a procedure known as unilateral knee replacement surgery.

Following are some of the indications for bilateral knee replacement surgery

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Knee deformity
  • Vascular necrosis
  • Swelling
  • Inflammation of the cartilage surrounding the knee

How is Total Knee Replacement B/L performed?

Bilateral knee replacement surgery can be approached in two ways: either both knees are addressed in a single surgery or each knee is operated on separately in distinct procedures. Opting for simultaneous surgery is often favored for younger patients with overall good health. In contrast, individual surgeries may be recommended, with a gap of a few hours to days between them.

Administration of Anesthesia: In the course of bilateral knee replacement surgery, patients are administered either general anesthesia for unconsciousness or spinal anesthesia to induce numbness. The knee is then accessed, either through an open incision or a small one in the case of minimally invasive procedures.

Type of Knee Implants: The surgical process involves the removal of the kneecap and the extraction of damaged or diseased knee components. These are substituted with implants crafted from metal, plastic, or ceramic materials, chosen based on the surgeon's assessment. The fixation of implants can be cemented or cementless, and the incision is meticulously closed using stitches. This comprehensive approach aims to restore knee function and alleviate discomfort, promoting a smoother recovery for individuals undergoing bilateral knee replacement surgery.

Typically lasting between 1 to 2 hours, knee replacement surgery involves a series of precise steps by the surgeon. This includes making a strategic incision over the knee, skillfully removing diseased and damaged bone and cartilage while preserving healthy bone, and finally, expertly implanting replacement components into the thighbone, shinbone, and kneecap. This meticulous process aims to restore function and alleviate pain, paving the way for improved mobility and quality of life.

Recovery from Total Knee Replacement B/L

Bilateral knee replacement surgery is a major procedure and therefore, recovery may take time. You are likely to experience pain for the initial few weeks. However, it goes away gradually as you start performing physical exercises recommended by the doctor.

You should keep your wound dry and clean to prevent infection after the surgery. In addition, you should elevate your leg often for reduced pain. Talk to your surgeon if you experience redness, swelling, or inflammation around the knee.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the average cost of Knee Replacement in Spain ?

Knee replacement is usually done to relieve any disturbance or pain in the weight-bearing joints, that is, the knee. It can involve minimally invasive surgical procedures and go up to total knee replacement. Therefore, the cost varies between 6000 USD to 20000 USD for a knee replacement in Spain. The highest this can go is to 55000 USD.

  1. Knee Replacement - Minimally Invasive Surgery can cost around 6000 USD to 8000 USD.

  2. Knee Replacement - Revision Surgery can cost around 11500 USD to 14500 USD.

  3. Knee Replacement (Total Knee Replacement) Surgery can cost around 13000 USD to 19500 USD.

What are the factors affecting the cost of Knee Replacement in Spain?

Like any other surgical treatment, the cost depends on presurgical requirements, operation costs, and post-surgical requirements. Presurgical costs include pathological tests, radiological investigations, and any additional assessment prescribed by your doctor. Surgical costs include the instruments required for the surgery, implant cost, hospital cost, and the cost based on the consultants involved in the case. Post-surgical costs include medical bills for the drugs, follow-up consultations, and the cost of any supportive equipment or medical gear.

What are the types/approaches to Knee Replacement available in Spain and their associated costs?

The knee replacement procedure is also known as arthroplasty. It involves the process of exchanging a damaged and weakened knee joint with an artificial one. It is performed for various arthritic knee diseases such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis mostly brought upon by old age. Other causes include ligament tears, joint dislocation, meniscal tears & cartilage damage.

Following are some of the most common types of Knee Replacement available in Spain -

  1. Partial Knee Replacement - It is done when only part of the knee is damaged or has any defect. Any damaged tissue structures or bony particles are removed while the rest of the knee is preserved and protected. The average cost of partial knee replacement in Spain is USD 6,000.

  2. Total Knee Replacement - The knee joint is a typical hinge joint and joins the thigh to the lower portion of the leg. The lower portion of the thigh and upper portion of the lower leg constitute the knee joint. In a total knee replacement, the damaged portion of the joint is replaced with artificial material such as a biocompatible implant or polyethylene post. It is usually recommended in cases of severe arthritis. The average cost of Total Knee Replacement in Spain is USD 13,000.

  3. Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement - This method uses modern equipment that is usually smaller in size when compared to other orthopedic instruments. Smaller incisions are made to access the knee joint and treat the damaged or affected portion of the knee joint. This surgery is usually done by experienced surgeons and shows better results in terms of avoiding capsular damage. It is also less painful post-surgery and recovery time is shorter. This type of surgery costs around USD 8,000 in Spain.

  4. Revision Knee Replacement Surgery - After a total knee replacement, a revision surgery might be needed for cases where the implant gets infected or becomes loose. Since the knee joint is frequently used, the implant might also incur wear and tear due to the friction. A part or total prosthesis or implant might have to be modified during this surgical process. The type of arthroplasty undertaken depends on the degree of damage to the knee joint. Revision Knee Replacement costs around USD 12,000 in Spain.
