1. What is joint replacement surgery (arthroplasty) and will I feel uncomfortable or unable to move normally after surgery?
Joint replacement is a surgery involving the removal of damaged bone and cartilage, the repair of the bone surface and the fitting of an artificial joint made of metal or plastic. It replaces the original cartilage to reduce the pain caused by the degeneration of the patient’s knee joint. Rehab exercises and appropriate ice packs are necessary to reduce swelling after the surgery. Patients need to be actively involved in rehab exercises under the instructions of their doctors and generally can return to normal life within 1-3 months. If in doubt, it is advisable to seek help from your doctor.
2. How long does a joint replacement last?
Today’s artificial joints generally have a life expectancy of over 20 years. In many cases, with proper care, artificial joints can last a lifetime. Patients do not need to undergo frequent surgery.
3. Should I pop my dislocated shoulder back into place?
Shoulder dislocations are prone to recurrence. It is likely to repeat habitually once you have experienced the bone slip. The attempt to relocate your dislocated shoulder would not be helpful. If you find that your shoulder joint is dislocated, you should seek medical help to restore it to its original position.
4. Do I need a referral from a general practitioner to make an appointment for orthopaedics?
Specialist consultation at Specialists Central does not require a referral from a general practitioner. You can call our clinic directly and make an appointment with our orthopaedic specialists.
5. Can I have orthopaedic consultation and treatment on the same day?
An appointment is required for our specialist services. You are advised to contact us to make an appointment. We will schedule medical consultation for a doctor to understand your condition before arranging appropriate exams and treatment.
6. What are the medical fees? Do specialist clinics accept health care vouchers? Can I pay via medical insurance?
Medical fees are determined based on the severity of the patient’s condition, his/her health status, the complexity of the treatment or surgery received, and the postoperative care services.
Health care vouchers can cover some of the costs. Please feel free to contact us for further information.
The medical policy and coverage of each patient vary. Please check with your insurer for the claims process, costs and other details before receiving our specialist outpatient services.
