Knee Replacement Package in Abano Terme, Italy

Knee replacement surgery is typically performed in patients suffering from various forms of arthritis. The intervention consists of replacing the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint with artificial, metal components in order to relieve pain and restore mobility. Depending on the severity of the arthritis, the choice can be made to replace the whole knee or only part of it.

Knee replacement procedures

  • Total knee replacement  surgery
  • Partial knee replacement surgery

Total knee replacement surgery: The procedure requires the replacement of the damaged cartilage of the knee joint by cutting of a little bit of the bones that make up the joint, and replacing it with an artificial prosthesis. After the prosthesis is set into place it is fixed to the bones using a special cement, and then the muscles and tendons of the knee can be repaired.

Partial knee replacement surgery: This variation of the procedure requires the replacement of only one part of the knee joint. Depending on which part needs replacing, the procedure can be done either on the inside (medial) or on the outside (lateral) part of the knee.

Procedures and Clinics

Policlinico Abano Terme, Abano Terme, Italy

The Abano Terme General Hospital is accredited by the National Health System and it is divided into three operative areas: Medicine, Surgery and Rehabilitation. The multi-specialized center offers both inpatient and outpatient medical care and it also has an important Emergency Department and its own Analysis Laboratory.

Traditional knee replacement surgery - $19,220 (minimum stay of six nights)

  • The first step is the exposure of the front of the knee
  • The quadriceps muscle is detached from the patella, and the patella is displaced to one side of the joint, allowing exposure of the ends of the femur and the of the tibia
  • The ends of these bones are then accurately cut to shape using cutting guides oriented to the long axis of the bones
  • The metal prosthesis is then impacted onto the bone or fixed using a special cement.

Robotic technique - $27,800 (three nights hospitalization)

  • Robotically-assisted surgery is used to enhance the capabilities of open-surgery.
  • Also, the robotically-assisted surgery has been developed in order to overcome the limitations of minimally-invasive surgery
  • In the case of robotically-assisted minimally-invasive surgery, the surgeon uses one of two methods to control the instruments(direct telemanipulator or through computer control)
