Operations on joints are conducted under partial or general anaesthesia depending on the patient’s condition and the type of operation. You will be informed about this at consultation before the operation, where there will be the operating surgeon and the anaesthesiologist. Simpler operations are conducted with local anaesthesia and more complex ones with general anaesthesia. The operating surgeon and the anaesthesiologist will always explain the procedure to the patient before the operation.
This depends on the specific operation carried out and its location. It is possible to make some general distinctions between larger and smaller scars. Arthroscopy of the knee, hip or shoulder leaves two small punctures on the sides. Total endoprosthesis causes more extensive scarring on the front in the case of the knee or shoulder, and on the side in the case of the hip.
Arthroscopy takes about 30 minutes for the knee and about one hour for the shoulder.

Total endoprosthesis takes around an hour and a half.

An operation on the spine takes around an hour and a half.

Other operations take around an hour.
