Reconstructive Arthroplasty Surgery

Putting Things Back Together Again

“Arthritis” is probably a word that you’re well familiar with, but perhaps not quite sure what it really means. Simply put, arthritis is joint inflammation. There are two major types of arthritis that people experience:

  • Osteoarthritis: Inflammation from simple “wear-and-tear.”
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: A degenerative disease in which the body’s immune system does not function properly.

Regardless of the type of arthritis that you suffer from, the pain is same. What may begin as a minor annoyance can quickly change into debilitating pain that turns even the most basic everyday activities into painful labor. When simple tasks like walking, standing up, or sitting become difficult, one may want to consider reconstructive arthroplasty at miVIP Las Vegas.

The root word “arthro-“means joint, while “-plasty” represents the molding, grafting, or creation of a specific part. That’s exactly what you get with an arthroplasty procedure. Your miVIP surgeon will either revise or reconstruct the current joint, or replace it with a synthetic prosthesis. Recent advances in surgical methods and technology allow patients who receive this procedure to live pain-free while also experiencing increased mobility.

How Arthroplasty is Performed

A reconstructive arthroplasty procedure involves your miVIP surgeon making an incision in the joint itself and removing any damaged or deformed tissue and/or bone. Once that’s completed, the surgeon will then either insert plastic or metallic parts to help rebuild the joint, or completely replace it with a prosthesis.

At miVIP, we offer minimally invasive arthroplasty. The incision into the joint is smaller and the surgeon uses an arthroscope to visualize the internal structures rather than creating a large incision to see them directly. Tools are threaded around muscles and tendons rather than cutting directly through them. This allows for a much faster recovery time and less post-operative pain.

Why Choose miVIP?

We at miVIP realize the only way to guarantee extraordinary patient outcomes is to work with extraordinary surgeons. Our surgeons have been recognized by their contemporaries as being among the best in their respective fields. Each brings impeccable credentials as well as numerous certifications and accolades to every case that they handle. When you choose to work with miVIP, you truly are receiving world-class care.

What to Expect During Recovery

Because we offer only minimally-invasive surgery, you can usually return home the same day as your procedure. Like with any surgical procedure, you will experience some post-operative pain. Take only the medications prescribed by your doctor to deal with such pain, as certain over-the-counter medications may cause bleeding. Depending on the location of the procedure, your age, or the nature of your pain, recovery can range from a couple of weeks to several months.

The Costs of Reconstructive Arthroplasty

Procedures done at miVIP are covered by most PPO and PPS insurance plans. We employ a dedicated patient advocacy staff that handles all of our pre-authorization and claims resolution. If you have any question regarding your coverage, feel free to schedule an appointment with any one of our patient advocates.

Other information

It should be remembered that reconstructive arthroplasty does not cure arthritis. However, it does help provide relief should your pain progress to the point of not responding to medication and of affecting your daily activities.
