Knee Replacement is an orthopedic surgery that replaces the damaged knee joint (which “articulates” three bones: the upper end of the tibia, the lower end of the femur and the kneecap) using artificial materials or prosthesis.
This surgery will help you regain the mobility of your knee and increase its range of motion.
VidasPrime puts at your disposal the most qualified surgeons with extensive experience in the Knee Unit. These renowned doctors bet on the implantation of knee prostheses with minimally invasive surgeries in the soft tissue around the knee.
Thanks to this technique, the recovery is much faster than the conventional procedure, while minimizing pain, incision size and hospital stay.
In addition, in our clinics we have the most advanced diagnostic equipment and we offer you a quick access without waiting lists.
Our priority is that your recovery is as quick as possible after the operation and that you can enjoy a much greater mobility and resume your daily activities without pain.

Knee replacement surgery may be an option for you if your knee pain interferes with your daily activities and non-surgical treatments have not helped or are no longer effective.
You might consider knee replacement surgery if you have a pain that:
- Persists despite the medication you take to relieve it.
- Worsens with walking, even with a cane or walker.
- Makes it difficult for you to perform such trivial actions as dressing.
- Affects your ability to go up or down stairs.
- Makes it difficult to rise from a seated position.
- Interferes with your night´s sleep.
Minimally invasive knee replacement surgery requires a skin incision of only 3 to 6 inches.
Compared with the traditional knee replacement surgery (that required an 8 to 12 inch incision down the middle of the knee) this technique may reduce the pain and speed up the recovery.
- Minimal lesion of the vascular and periarticular nerve structures.
- Minimal dissection and aggression of the musculature, ligaments and tendons.
- Minimal bone resection.
- Minimal bleeding.
- Minimal pain and faster recovery.
In addition, it reduces the risk of infection to 50% compared to traditional surgery.
The long-term success (10 years or more) of total knee arthroplasty has a survival rate of more than 90 percent in many studies.
Expect your new knee joint to reduce the pain you felt before your surgery and increase the range of movement in the joint.
Despite this, keep in mind that you will have certain limitations and you will not have the same mobility that you had before your knee became painful.
The minimally invasive surgery can significantly reduce the length of your stay in Spain to several days.
The rehabilitation period after knee replacement surgery is approximately 3-6 months.
The rehabilitation programme is adapted to your physiological characteristics. If you wish, you can attend a complete rehabilitation course in one of our clinics in Spain.
After your return to your country, you will continue the rehabilitation programme according to the plan drawn up in Spain.
The total rehabilitation period after knee replacement may take from several months to one year.
Total Knee Replacement
How is the surgery?
The knee joint is the largest joint in the body. It is the joint that allows the leg to bend and straighten.
The knee joint is located at the meeting point of the thigh bone (femur) and the shin bone (tibia). The knee cap (patella) covers the area where the two bones meet.
During total knee replacement surgery, the damaged part of your knee is removed and replaced with an implant.
Our orthopaedic surgeon selects the components that are best for you, depending on your age, activity level, and body type.
The surgery is completed in approximately one to three hours.
You will recover in the Post-Anesthesia Unit and a nurse will assist you before you are taken to your hospital room.
The average time in this unit is approximately two hours.
