Frequent Questions

Frequently asked questions about orthopedic and trauma

Can I have surgery on both knees?

Some large hospitals have the equipment to replace both knees. However, I won’t recommend it since the risk of trans-surgical complications increases.

What is the minimum age to get knee surgery?

There is no restriction regarding age. It is usually recommended for patients over 55 years old, although if a young person has a disease, we can order a special prosthesis.

When would I be able to walk again?

Patients with a cemented prosthesis can walk with assistance the next day. If you got uncemented or hybrid prostheses, you would start walking that week.
