Some of our routine surgeries we perform for our patients in <location> are meniscus repair and debridement, biceps release, chondroplasty and rotator cuff repair. One of the hardest surgeries though is a complete knee and shoulder replacement. Since the first knee replacement surgeries in the late '60s, there has been enormous progress and improvement in the surgical techniques and medical devices, that are being used to replace damaged bone and cartilage in the knee. Nowadays the procedure takes about 2 hours. After the surgery, you will be moved to the recovery room, where you will remain for several hours while your recovery from anesthesia is monitored. After that, you will be taken to your hospital room. The basic surgical steps that knee and shoulder replacements have in common are the bone preparation, the installation of the metal implants and insertion of a spacer. In shoulder replacement much like knee replacement, the damaged parts of the shoulder are removed and replaced with artificial components.
Every surgery requires some preparation. Removing the anxiety is one of our top priorities, from medication and home planning to recovery and rehabilitation, our team of orthopedic physicians are here to help and will guide you through every step.
The All Island Orthopedics team wishes its patients in Kew Gardens a speedy and full recovery.
