Preparation

The artificial hip joint

The insertion of an artificial hip joint is a major operation: For this reason, our doctors provide the patients with comprehensive, expert information on preparation, procedure and after-care of the operation.

Patients can also receive prior information during an out-patient appointment. People can therefore be sure that they receive the best possible care at the Waldkrankenhaus Eisenberg.

Before the operation, our doctors carry out a thorough physical examination, which verifies once again the need for the operation. Here they determine together with the anaesthetist and if necessary with the internists, whether any concomitant internal disorders exist, for example cardiovascular problems, which may make the operation more difficult. In this way, the doctors ensure that the operation goes as smoothly and safely as possible.

In addition, these preliminary examinations form the basis for the discussion with the anaesthetist. The latter develops the individual anaesthetic concept together with the patient, adapted to his or her health condition and any previous illnesses. Here our anaesthetists work intensively with the surgeons.
