Modern treatment concept for joint replacement
The patient as partner
The Schön Klinik Endo Active programme actively involves you in your treatment from the start. Even before the procedure, you’ll receive intensive training on exactly what will happen. At the same time, you’ll discover how you can best prepare for the operation. In preliminary talks, you’ll also get to know your therapy team, who’ll take care of you during and after the procedure. The surgeons, anaesthetists, physiotherapists and nurses are always happy to lend an ear for any questions, thoughts or concerns.
Our Endo Active programme also includes gentle anaesthetic procedures, small incisions and individually adjusted pain therapy. All of our measures support a faster recovery. You’ll be mobile enough to start follow-up treatment or rehabilitation around five days after surgery on average.
Pain therapy for fast mobilisation
The pain therapy as part of our Endo Active programme is based on the very latest scientific findings. Instead of general anaesthetic, you’ll typically receive a highly tolerable spinal anaesthetic and sleeping pills. We treat the wound region with painkillers even during the operation. In addition, in contrast to conventional joint replacement, we don’t use catheters or wound drains. This helps us minimise the amount of pain you feel after surgery. We always individually adjust the quantities and types of medication you need to your requirements. Just a few hours after the joint operation (knee TEP, hip TEP, second operation), you’ll be on your feet again and able to walk independently after a few days.
As part of the Endo Active programme, you’ll typically receive a tolerable spinal anaesthetic. The advantage: you’ll quickly be fit and healthy again after joint replacement surgery and able to start exercises early.
High quality of treatment = satisfied patients
Around 35,000 patients chose our Endo Active programme in the last six years - and for good reason. On average, our patients are mobile a lot earlier than with conventional joint replacement procedures. This early mobilisation limits complications such as thrombosis or circulatory issues.
In general, you can leave the clinic again and return to your everyday life after five days. Most everyday activities can be completed again without issue just three months after surgery.
After rehab, we also support you in implementing the exercise programme into your daily routine.
