HIP REPLACEMENT SURGERY

 

Hip Replacement Surgery in Israel

Hip joint replacement in Israel is one of the most prevalent orthopedic surgeries, facilitating complete restoration of mobility impaired due to age-related changes or hip fracture. Replacement of large joints is the primary technique of radical treatment of irreversible changes (arthrosis), impacting motor function and patients’ quality of life.
 
By employing innovative surgical techniques Orthopedic Department specialists at IES, the leading private medical center, have achieved impressive outcomes in hip replacement surgery in Israel and have greatly expanded indications for this surgery.
 

IES Private Medical Center serves as a model of unrivalled quality standards of medical services which also encompass the professionalism of the medical staff; physicians and nurses, and the comfort and humanitarian treatment they offer patients.

 
Structure and function of the hip joint
The hip joint is the largest joint of the human anatomy, connecting the head of the femur to the pelvis. Its unique anatomical structure enables achievement of a high range of motion in three axes (flexion and extension, abduction and adduction, external and internal rotation of the hip).
 

Every joint is subjected to tremendous loads from walking, physical activity and conveying heavy loads.

Strong joints and ligaments provide power and stability of the compound. The articular surfaces are covered by hyaline cartilage, providing smooth motion and preventing friction. The presence of major anatomical structures requires a good blood supply to the joint, which provides an outlet for major pelvic and hip arteries. Disruptions occurring in one or more elements can cause lasting damage, often resistant to preservative treatment.
 

Indications for hip joint replacement surgery in Israel


A number of diseases (e.g. arthrosis), as well as age-related changes, can lead to disrupted function of the hip joint. Preservative treatments of inflammatory and degenerative processes do not eliminate their cause, have a transient effect and considerable side effects, narrowing indications for their long-term use. Endoprosthesis is capable of permanently solving the problem and ensures the normal functioning of the joint. The principal indications for hip replacement surgery in Israel are:

  • Age-related changes in the hip joint and the emergence of progressive arthrosis. Degenerative cartilage modifications lead to increased friction at articular surfaces, causing chronic aseptic (non-infectious) joint inflammation, accompanied by increased pain while walking. Consequences of osteoarthritis and age-related changes are the primary indication for a routine replacement
  • After-effects of rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis and infectious diseases 
  • Traumatic disorders, specifically hip fracture. The majority of hip fractures, in both young and older individuals, is accompanied by a displacement of the femoral head, which causes acute disturbance of blood supply and risk of necrosis. Risk of post-traumatic avascular necrosis of the femoral head is an indication for hip surgery in patients of all ages.
  • Non-traumatic circulatory joint disorders 
  • Cell tumor originating from bone or joint capsule
 
Diagnosis of diseases of the hip joint in Israel

Medical experts at IES Private Medical Center developed an individual patient screening program with the aim of outlining indications for surgical treatment. The main diagnostic methods for hip-joint diseases in Israel are the following:

  • Different Radiographic Projections
  • Hip Joint Ultrasonography (USG) 
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Angiography employing a contrast agent
  • Isotope bone scan
  • Diagnostic perforation
  • Blood and synovial fluid analysis for diagnosis of inflammation or other pathologic process
 
Hip joint replacement in Israel
Orthopedists at IES Private Medical Center conduct all kinds of hip joint replacement surgeries, including partial or complete replacement.
 
During the surgery, high-quality biologically neutral implants are installed which are accepted by the human body. Hip surgery is performed under general or spinal anesthesia. During partial hip replacement, the surgeon removes the femoral head and neck, which are replaced with a prosthesis. If the surgeon performs a complete replacement, along with the femoral prosthesis, the entire articular surface is replaced. In the postoperative period, patients undergo complete rehabilitation in order to return to a normal lifestyle.
 

Orthopedists at "IES" Private Medical Center guarantee a personalized approach for each case of hip surgery, providing complete information about recommended surgery and the advantages and disadvantages of each method. Top-quality professionalism and accountability for the treatment outcomes are the fundamentals of IES.
