Expert joint care to help you move Better

You rely on all of your joints every day, but due to overuse or other injuries, poor mechanics, or arthritis, you may start to experience joint pain.

Opciones avanzadas de reemplazo de articulación

With advances in technology and surgical procedures, you now have even more options for joint replacement. Baylor Scott & White also offers several specialized orthopedic procedures that help lessen recovery time.

  • Reemplazo de la cadera anterior
  • Robot-assisted total hip and knee replacement
  • Robot-assisted partial knee resurfacing
  • Reemplazo de la articulación de un día

Reemplazo de la cadera anterior

For many people suffering from arthritis, hip pain, stiffness and/or limited hip movement, the only option for relief is a total hip replacement. However, many Baylor Scott & White facilities offer anterior hip replacement—a proven, minimally invasive technique that usually minimizes pain and the time from surgery to recovery.

El reemplazo de cadera anterior ofrece muchos beneficios potenciales:

  • It allows the surgeon to get to the hip joint from the front of the hip rather than having to cut and then re-attach muscles around the hip as in the conventional approach.
  • En el abordaje anterior, un cirujano ortopédico llega a la cadera trabajando a través de aberturas naturales entre los músculos. Por no tener que cortar los músculos, por lo general se disminuye el dolor y el tiempo de curación.
  • Con un enfoque convencional, por lo general hay precauciones estrictas para el movimiento de la cadera, lo que puede ralentizar la recuperación. Con el abordaje anterior, se permite a los pacientes doblar la cadera libremente después de la operación y pueden soportar el peso completo tan pronto como se sientan cómodos. Esto generalmente resulta en un regreso más rápido a la función normal.

Robot-assisted total hip and knee replacement

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple offers robotic-assisted hip and knee procedures. The robotic arm is designed for patients with degenerative hip joint disease caused by osteoarthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis or hip dysplasia. It uses real-time imaging information and images of your hip to help accurate implant placement.

Los beneficios pueden incluir:

  • Reducción de la probabilidad de dislocación de cadera
  • Mayor consistencia en la longitud de la pierna, disminuyendo potencialmente la necesidad de una elevación del zapato
  • Disminución del riesgo de que el implante y el hueso se froten anormalmente, mejorando potencialmente la vida útil del implante

Robot-assisted partial knee resurfacing

El rejuvenecimiento parcial de la rodilla es una opción de tratamiento innovadora para adultos que viven con osteoartritis temprana a media etapa que no ha progresado a los tres compartimentos de la rodilla. Durante el procedimiento, la parte enferma de la rodilla se resurge, ahorrando el hueso sano del paciente y el tejido circundante. Luego se asegura un implante en la articulación para permitir que la rodilla se mueva suavemente nuevamente.

El uso de asistencia robótica durante el resurgimiento puede permitir:

  • Posicionamiento ideal del implante para dar lugar a una rodilla más natural después de la cirugía
  • Recuperación más rápida y estancia hospitalaria más corta que la cirugía tradicional de reemplazo de rodilla
  • Menos cicatrices / incisión más pequeña
  • El procedimiento se realizará de forma ambulatoria
  • Alivio más rápido del dolor y retorno a las actividades diarias

Reemplazo de la articulación de un día

One-day joint replacement discharge is available for eligible patients undergoing total hip or total knee replacement surgery. This innovative approach means patients are discharged home within 24 hours after their surgery.

Thanks to advances in anesthesia during hip or knee replacement, patients generally wake up sooner after their procedure and without previous side effects like nausea. This allows rehabilitation to begin within hours after surgery and enables a patient to be discharged within 24 hours after their surgery.

Who qualifies for one-day joint replacement discharge?

Muchos pacientes califican para una descarga de reemplazo articular de un día, incluyendo aquellos que:

  • Están en general en buena salud
  • Tener una masa corporal saludable
  • Tener una persona de apoyo para ayudar en casa
  • Tome una clase de entrenamiento preoperatorio y revise los materiales educativos
  • Han discutido una descarga de reemplazo articular de un día con su cirujano

Si en cualquier momento y por cualquier razón un paciente que cumpla con los criterios para una descarga de reemplazo articular de un día no esté listo para ir a casa el día después de su cirugía, el paciente permanecerá en el hospital hasta que esté preparado para estar seguro descargado en casa.
