Frequently asked questions

Is it possible to avoid the surgery with joint infiltrations or alternative therapy?

Some cases may improve, but some won’t. Joints with advanced damage will only get better after surgery.

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.

How long does the knee surgery last?

It takes approximately an hour and a half and requires a night of hospitalization.

When will I be able to walk again?

Within a week, you will be able to start walking.

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.
