Orthopedics

The NexGen System

Here at Blue Tree Clinics, we are the leading choice for those seeking cutting-edge treatments for all manner of physical complaints. One such area that we are proficient in is orthopedic care which relates to conditions that affect the bones and joints. The knee is one of the largest joints in the human body, and its complexity is what enables us to perform functions such as walking, climbing the stairs and sitting and standing.

However, due to this complexity, when something goes wrong the knock-on effect can be extensive and in many ways debilitating. Such issues can make these basic activities incredibly difficult and often leave patients dependent on walking aids to get around. As the number one orthopedic specialists in Dubai, we have access to the very latest technologies and are well-versed in the most cutting-edge techniques.

The NexGen system refers to a total knee replacement implant that has been specially designed for joint surface erosion but only partial flexion ability. This is the preferred method in cases where preserving the joint is considered to be the higher priority.

Causes

It’s not uncommon for people to experience stiff knees and discomfort with walking at one stage or another. This is especially true as we get older and the joints become more and more worn as a result of years of use. So long as the knee joint remains intact, a knee replacement is usually not needed. However, in the event of a traumatic injury, part or the whole knee could be seriously damaged impacting the natural range of motion possible.

Other causes include auto-immune diseases such as arthritis and osteoarthritis which cause the immune system to continuously attack the joints. In situations where the patient requires only partial flexion ability, or in cases where partial flexion ability is necessary, we typically suggest the NexGen implant.

Treatment

At Blue Tree Clinics, we are committed to providing an individualised treatment plan that has been tailored to the patient’s particular needs. To ensure this, we first start with a complete physical examination as well as a review of your medical history. We will ask you questions related to your job and lifestyle in order to devise a well-suited treatment plan.

We have access to the very latest radiography equipment such as x-ray machines enabling us to provide you with a detailed diagnosis. Once we have assessed the condition of your knee, we will determine whether or not the NexGen system is right for you. We’re more than happy to answer any questions you might have as well as walk you through the procedure, so you know exactly what to expect.

The procedure itself involves attaching the various metal components of the NexGen implant directly to the bones using a specialised bone cement. This will be carried out under anaesthetic by our trained orthopedic surgeons. Once the procedure is completed, we will discuss a treatment plan that is designed to help you acclimate to the new implant as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

Testimonial

“I recently arranged an appointment with Blue Tree Clinics to discuss the NexGen system. I had heard about this through word of mouth and was eager to find out more. Dr. Ansari really went out of his way to make me feel welcome and was more than happy to answer all my (often silly) questions. As for the procedure itself, I’m happy to say that it has proven a massive success in improving my overall mobility.” – Asara
