The orthopedics center offers innovative surgical care. Eligible patients can benefit from the principles of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS). This novel, comprehensive approach to care, delivered by a team motivated by the patient as a stakeholder in his or her own recovery, enables:
- enhanced comfort and improved recovery
- a decreased duration of hospitalization
To guide patients and help them prepare for every step of their ERAS healthcare journey, the center offers a treatment education session delivered by the chief preoperative nurse, as well as physical therapy support. This organization has been certified as a GRACE reference center (Francophone ERAS Group, Groupement Francophone de Réhabilitation Amélioré après Chirurgie), recognized by the HAS.
Arthrosis of the hip, joint diseases, loose prostheses, etc. Each of these conditions requires a specific hip surgery whose goal is to optimize mobility and joint comfort.
Total hip prosthesis
Arthrosis of the hip, which corresponds to cartilage erosion, leads to a loss of mobility and pain. To address this, orthopedic surgery can be used to implant a hip prosthesis: this replaces the joint, restoring its mobility and eliminating any pain.
Artificial hip replacement
To resolve arthrosis of the hip, a prosthesis is installed. Sometimes, this prosthesis gets worn out and starts to loosen, or causes inflammation around the joint: to avoid pontifical complications and treat any discomfort, total replacement of the artificial hip is required.
Hip capsular repair
Sometimes the hip joint can lose mobility due to extreme movements or some athletic activities, which is exactly what occurs in the case of anterior hip conflict. The hip socket and the femur do not interact smoothly due to excessive contact between the different elements of the joint.
In the event of a bulge lesion or if a foreign body is introduced into the joint, hip arthroscopy is required. This intervention enables resolution of the problem at the source using a slim device, thus avoiding having to surgically open the hip.
Conservative hip surgery
When hip dysplasia is diagnosed, the therapeutic objective consists of avoid premature wear of the cartilage and the entire joint. By directly addressing the hip anomalies, the surgeon can rebalance the joint.
Femoral neck fracture
When the surgical risk is deemed acceptable, the operation consists of implanting an artificial hip (or a plate, depending on the type of fracture), often under epidural anesthesia. In young patients, surgical treatment is most commonly based on solid bone synthesis (stabilization of the fracture with a pin, a plate, etc.) after perfect reduction. But if the fracture is significant, an artificial hip may be implanted as first-line treatment.
