Accurate measurements are taken before the patient is hospitalized and an operation plan is drawn up. For this, a computer program is used that models the anatomical structure of the joint in three-dimensional space. With its help, you can perform operations for the complete or partial restoration of the joints. Dr. Benkovic is one of the pioneers in this field.

Diagnosis: partial knee replacement

At Sheba Clinic, I had a partial knee replacement surgery. Thanks to the use of robotic systems, the prosthesis was chosen very accurately, on the third day I was already walking, now the knee is working normally, there are no problems.

Diagnosis: knee replacement

It just so happened that I seriously injured my knee. I went to Ichilov for treatment, where Aaron Menachem operated on me. The operation was more than successful, because all this time I was in the hands of an experienced professional. Now my new knee is working very well, so I am now quite active.

Diagnosis: knee replacement

Due to deforming osteoarthritis, my knee almost completely stopped bending. In addition, it constantly hurt, so I always had to take painkillers. In Assuta, I had an appointment with Ilya Pekarsky, who recommended that I put in an endoprosthesis and explained why it was important. The operation went well and I can walk without limping.

Diagnosis: knee replacement

During a car accident, I seriously injured my knee and the question arose of removing the joint completely. In our country, I did not dare to undergo such a serious operation and, in search of an alternative solution to the problem, I turned to the Sheba clinic. I was offered to put an endoprosthesis. After knee arthroplasty, I got up on my feet the very next day. Now I lead an active lifestyle, as before the accident.

Diagnosis: knee replacement

In my 80s, I led an active lifestyle: I worked in the garden, went fishing. But when I started having problems with my knee joint, I could not find a surgeon who would perform arthroplasty. The main argument was that a person at that age may not be able to undergo surgery. My granddaughter turned to the Assuta clinic – and Israeli orthopedists did not find any contraindications for the operation in me. A month later, I successfully underwent knee arthroplasty surgery. A few months later he returned to my usual way of life. Thanks to the entire staff of the clinic, especially Ilya Pekarsky.

Sincerely, Valentin Borisovich.

Endoprosthetics of the knee joint in Israel is a modern surgical intervention in which a damaged or worn joint is replaced with an artificial one. This procedure helps people suffering from chronic knee pain, arthritis or injury.

The operation can significantly improve the quality of life and restore activity.

Israeli medical centers attract patients from all over the world due to the high level of professionalism of doctors, the latest generation equipment and innovative technologies.

What are the advantages of arthroplasty in Israeli clinics?

knee arthroplasty surgeon in Israel

The country is famous for its level of medical services and advanced technologies, which ensures high standards of quality and safety of the procedure. Endoprosthetics of the knee joint in Israel has several significant advantages:

  1. The surgeons have a high level of qualifications and extensive experience and regularly improve their professional training.
  2. The use of the most modern technologies and materials to manufacture and fix endoprostheses. They provide high biocompatibility with body tissues, wear resistance, and durability.
  3. Individual approach to each patient. Specialists use computer modeling, taking into account the anatomical features of the joint.
  4. The operation is carried out under the control of an MRI machine, which contributes to the high accuracy of the manipulations.
  5. The use of minimally invasive surgery. Thus, it is possible to reduce postoperative recovery time and minimize potential complications.
Indications for arthroplasty

Indications for arthroplasty

Replacement of a damaged knee joint in Israel is carried out with age-related changes and pathological conditions, which are accompanied by in tense pain and limited mobility.

Among the main indications for the procedure are:

  • osteoarthritis, causing acute pain and stiffness in movements;
  • rheumatoid arthritis – leads to erosive-destructive changes in cartilage tissue;
  • traumatic injury to the joint, which is not amenable to conservative methods of treatment;
  • severe joint deformities that limit physical activity and cause severe pain.

The decision on the need for this surgical intervention is made by a specialist after a thorough examination.


Modern types of prostheses

Modern types of knee prostheses

Today, modern orthopedics uses endoprostheses that quickly integrate into living tissues.

In Israeli clinics, knee arthroplasty is performed in the following ways:

  1. Complete or total. The surgeon replaces a worn or damaged joint with an artificial implant. This method is used in severe forms of arthrosis or arthritis, when all three joint surfaces are damaged.
  2. Partial. In this case, only the damaged parts of the joint are replaced. This surgical procedure is more gentle on the tissues than a full denture and may be more suitable for patients with minor injuries.
  3. Revision. This procedure is performed when a previously placed prosthesis needs to be replaced. Indications for surgery may include implant wear, infection, bone destruction, and other problems with the prosthesis.

The selection of the type of prosthetics depends on many factors and is determined by the doctor after a comprehensive diagnosis.

How to prepare for the surgery?

Preparation for knee arthroplasty in Israel

In Israel, an orthopedic surgeon examines the patient before planning the knee replacement surgery. The specialist takes the patient’s medical and life history, assesses the symptoms and conducts a physical examination of the affected joint.

Further, the specialist prescribes laboratory and instrumental diagnostics to assess the condition of the knee joint. Among the most requested:

  • a detailed blood test with biochemistry (determination of infectious processes, metabolic disorders);
  • general clinical urine tests (detection of inflammatory processes, infections);
  • X-ray examination (estimate the degree of wear of cartilage and bone tissue);
  • MRI (assess the condition of the muscles, ligaments, tendons and meniscus).
Surgery progress

Knee replacement in Israel - surgery

Knee replacement in Israel is usually carried out through arthroplasty surgery, and includes the following steps:

  1. The surgeon makes an incision in the front of the knee.
  2. Removes damaged tissue.
  3. Produces implantation of the prosthesis (full or partial).
  4. Implant fixation with special glue or cement.
  5. For accurate installation of prosthesis elements, the procedure is performed under the control of an MRI or X-ray machine.

Upon completion of prosthetics, the patient is transferred to the ward. Monitoring of his condition is carried out by medical personnel around the clock. In the next few days, the patient is prescribed painkillers, as well as drugs to prevent blood clots.

Rehabilitation period

The duration of rehabilitation varies from 2-3 weeks to several months. Rehabilitation tactics are made by experienced physiotherapists and rehabilitation specialists individually for each patient. Treatment is aimed at restoring knee mobility and physical activity in general.

The rehabilitation program after knee replacement in Israel includes:

  • physical therapy;
  • gradual increase in activity and physical activity;
  • training in the correct positioning of the foot and the use of assistive devices;
  • pain control and prescription of the latest pain medications;
  • care instructions;
  • support and accompaniment of the patient during the entire rehabilitation process.
Expected results after treatment

Results after knee replacement

Knee joint replacement in Israel is an effective and safe procedure that allows you to achieve a number of positive effects:

  1. Reduction or disappearance of pain. Most patients report significant relief a few days after surgery.
  2. Restoration of mobility and function of the joint. Patients can return to normal activities such as walking, climbing stairs and gardening. It is also possible to resume light sports such as swimming, cycling, golf. In this case, it is necessary to follow the recommendations of the doctor and avoid excessive stress on the knee.
  3. Duration of operation. The service life of the prosthesis can reach 18 or even 25 years, depending on the type of prosthesis and the lifestyle of the patient. Modern implants are made from high-quality materials that ensure their durability and biocompatibility. This is the ability of a prosthetic material to interact with body tissues without negatively affecting their functioning.
New technologies and methods of prosthetics in Israel

Prosthetics of the knee joint in Israel is carried out using modern technologies that increase the efficiency and safety of the procedure, prevent complications and reduce the rehabilitation time. The most relevant include:

  • Cement-free fixation of prostheses. The prosthesis is attached to the bone without the use of special cement, but due to the natural ingrowth of the bone into the porous surface of the prosthesis made of titanium or other material;
  • Individual prostheses. They are made according to the individual size and shape of the patient’s joint using computer modeling and 3D printing.
  • Navigation system. Allows the doctor to control the position of the prosthesis relative to the bone during the operation using a computer and sensors.
