What is it Like to Undergo Total Knee Replacement Surgery in Mexicali, Mexico?
During a Total Knee Replacement Surgery, the damaged joint is replaced with a prosthetic implant made of metal and plastic components, restoring motion and mobility to the knee. This surgery is typically performed to relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis, other knee diseases, or to repair severe joint damage.
The surgery itself takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete, and patients are usually placed under general anesthesia or spinal blockage during the procedure. We prioritize the use of FDA-approved knee implants, such as Biomet and Smith & Nephew, ensuring your safety and peace of mind.
The day after the surgery, our team will assist you in starting to walk and stretch your new joint, which is crucial for adjusting to the replacement. It's normal to experience some mild discomfort initially, but the pain is minimal, and the recovery from knee surgery is relatively quick.
Physical therapy is recommended after the surgery, and you have the option to stay in Mexicali for some sessions or return home after a couple of days. You may also choose to undergo physical therapy at your own location.
