Gleneagles Hong Kong launched a new Joint Replacement Centre in December 2018, to provide patients with a complete range of orthopaedic treatments and care.
“The establishment of the centre relies on our cross-disciplinary medical team to provide comprehensive medical care for patients with joint problems,” explained Dirk Schraven, Chief Executive Officer, Gleneagles Hong Kong. “Our specialist team uses a rapid rehabilitation surgery model with modern surgical procedures to reduce recovery time and improve surgical outcomes.”
The Centre also adopts the proprietary Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) approach, which was pioneered by Hong Kong University’s Department of Orthopaedics & Traumatology.
Supported by a multidisciplinary team of specialists in anaesthetics, orthopaedics, pain management, physiotherapy and dietetics, patients benefit from reduced surgery time, shortened hospital stays, decreased pain and speedier overall recovery.
In a study of the first 100 cases of joint replacement performed at Gleneagles Hong Kong from June 2017 to November 2018, all patients were able to stand or walk on the first day after surgery and were discharged in five to seven days.
