ligament knee outpatient (or day hospitalization)
Traditionally, surgical reconstruction of knee ligaments required hospitalization for several nights at the clinic. The average term in France for this type of surgery is 3 to 5 nights.
HENCEFORTH, WE OFFER OUR PATIENTS ACHIEVE AN INTERVENTION ligamentoplasty OUTPATIENT.
That is, to have the possibility to arrive the morning of surgery at the clinic and leave home that night.
The expected benefit is an improvement in the patient’s overall care.
This is made possible through the collaboration of the surgeon, anesthetist and paramedical team (physiotherapist, nurse). All criteria to treat pain and improve recovery of autonomy are optimized.
The surgical technique must be mastered, minimally invasive, arthroscopic necessarily, with a short, little bleeding. The perioperative analgesia is also optimized with the use of local anesthetic, loco regional analgesia and analgesic drugs with effective synergistic action.
Indeed, the short-stay strategy is possible due to the progress in the accompaniment of patients operated.
TODAY, THE SURGERY IS POSSIBLE IN MOST CASES FOR ligament.
Our team conducted a study to demonstrate the feasibility and safety of this support. We compared two groups of patients were operated in traditional hospitalization are ambulatory. There were no complications in both cases. Patients who have returned to their home consumed less pain medication that hospitalized patients.
