Knee Replacement Surgery in Israel

It is a common misconception that conditions such as arthrosis (cartilage damage), osteoarthritis (common among senior patients), and arthritis can be treated by means of physiotherapy, acupuncture, massages, or managed by medications. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Non-invasive methods of treatment can provide only short-term relief. Only a knee replacement surgery will get you back on your feet.

Technological advances (such as high-teach biologic joint prostheses and biological adhesives) made Israel the leading destination for this treatment. During the operation the surgeon will remove the damages parts of your knee joint and replace them with biocompatible prostheses, ensuring smooth and painless joint motions from then on. The exact sizes and type of the prostheses will be determined by your surgeon during your preoperative exam.

Knee replacements have a higher success rate than most other orthopedic surgeries. Another advantage of the knee replacement procedure is that there is no need for rehabilitation! The only exercise you’ll need to do is bending/straightening the knee for the first 4-6 weeks following the surgery. This is done at home, and there’s absolutely no need for you to go to a rehabilitation center.

If you are an elderly patient suffering from:

  • Knee joint pain
  • Limited knee joint mobility
  • Cartilage damage
  • Wear of joint surfaces

You may require a knee replacement surgery.

As time is of the essence when dealing with this type of condition, we urge you to contact as ASAP. If you already have an X-ray scan, you can attach images to a contact form. It will allow our specialists to assess the damage to your knee joint. Also, please provide us with as much information as possible about the symptoms you are currently experiencing. This will help our Israeli orthopedist draft a diagnostics program in advance of your arrival. The long distance consultation is FREE OF CHARGE. If you did not previously undergo a high-resolution scan will take place after your arrival in Israel. You will also have an orthopedist consultation, following which they will draft a treatment program for you.

Please note that if you require bilateral knee joint replacement you will first undergo replacement of the more worn joint. The second knee can be operated on 4 to 6 months later.

Treatment Program

The knee replacement surgery in Israel program takes place at the state-of-the-art Assuta Medical Center in Tel Aviv. The cost of the program will include:

  • X-ray of knee joints (in different projections)
  • Routine blood tests
  • Pre-operative preparation (ECG, Chest X-ray, anesthesiologist consultation)
  • Orthopedist’s exam
  • Joint prostheses
  • Surgery (lasts approx. 2.5 hours) and up to 7 days of hospitalization at a semi-private room at Assuta’s Orthopedic Department
  • Disposable materials

You’ll be able to start walking again within a couple of days following the surgery. Provided everything goes to plan, you will be released from the hospital 7 days after the operation and will be able to travel back home after two additional weeks. We will keep in touch with you after you leave Israel to make sure your recovery is going to plan. If needed, you can always contact us or your treating physician with any questions/concerns you have.

Please Note

The suggested treatment (by a specialist recommended by us) will take place at Assuta Medical Center, which is the best hospital in Israel. If you would like, we can instead arrange treatment for you at one of Israel’s public hospitals. In such case, the cost of the surgery (not including the logistics package) will be lower by 20 to 30 per cent. However, while we can guarantee that the surgery will be performed by one of that hospital’s top experts, the decision regarding which physician will depend on the hospitals’ schedule.

Sadly, the pain caused by a worn knee joint will not go away on its own, and it can’t be treated by medications or physiotherapy. The constant pain will eventually grow stronger, to the point it cannot be controlled by painkillers, and affect your day-to-day activities more and more. But that’s not even the worst part – the sedentary lifestyle it will force you into is dangerous and will lead to development of heart and lung diseases.
