- Performs specialized treatment of knee joint disorders through arthroscopic and replacement surgeries after comprehensively assessing the patient’s age, symptoms, and health conditions. Our goal is to provide the most suitable treatment method by preserving the patient’s knee joints and surrounding tissues as much as possible.
Total Knee Replcement
If the patient cannot walk normally due to various disorders associated with the knee, trauma, or aging, this surgery removes the damaged joint and replaces it with an artificial joint which suits the individual. The knee replacement surgery at the Wellton Hospital decrased the existing standard of the incision site by half from 20cm to 10cm, noticeably decreasing the pain and damage in the muscle and tendon.
> Minimal Incision Surgery The unneeded muscle and tendon damage are decreased through the minimal incision surgery, and also, the pain, bleeding, and scar are minimized subsequent to the surgery. Because the damaged site has been minimized, the synechia after surgery has also been decreased for an amicable bending motion in the knees.
> Knee Stability Maximization By considering the individual’s soft tissue condition, living environments, joint condition, gender, age, and level of activity, we provide the most suitable artificial joint to the patients. The so called, “customized artificial joint” has amazing stability where as the stress forced on the knee is decreased to maintain the function reformation of the joint and improve pain associated with the knee.
> 1:1 Cutting edge
rehabilitaion treatment After the surgery, the specialized rehabilitation therapist performs 1 on 1 customized rehabilitation treatment on the patient.
> 4 hours after the surgery,
early ambulation The early rehabilitation training accompanied by our specialized therapists prevents synechia in the surgical site and strengthens muscles.
> Live surgery scene The surgery is performed under live scene. Therefore, the patient and guardians can feel as ease during the surgery.
> Bacteria-free System in
Operating Rooms All of our operating rooms have bacteria-free systems to achieve infection rate of 0%.
Knee Replacement Surgery
In the following cases, knee replacement surgery is implemented: last stage of degenerative arthritis accompanied by severe pain and completely worn out cartilage, rheumatoid arthritis with transformation in the joint or severe joint damage, severe pain when resting or sleeping, and difficulty in walking due to stiff knees.
Degenerative arthritis/rheumatoid arthritis/degenerative arthritis from inborn deformity/arthritis from trauma related to accidents
Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
This surgery forms a 1cm hole in the knee joint site associated with problems and inserts an arthroscopy attached with a camera to monitor the joint conditions to clean out the foreign substances and damaged cartilages. However, in the case of the worn out cartilage, arthroscopic surgery is not possible and substitution of artificial joint is needed.
> 1 day arthroscopic surgery Undergoing surgery at the first hospitalization day and the patient can be discharged from the hospital in the very next day. (Subject to change depending on the type of surgery)
> Skilled Specialist’s Surgery We can ensure accuracy and safety of the surgery because our skilled specialists directly monitors inside of the joint through artho-scopy
> Minimal Bleeding,
Minimal Pain With minimal incision of less than 1 cm, the scars, bleeding, and pain from the surgery have been substantially decreased.
> Customized Rehabilitation
Program We have a systematized rehabilitation programs for effective post recovery and rehabilitation.
