Au bout de combien de temps serai-je capable de marcher à nouveau ?

La reprise du plein appui après une ostéotomie se fait généralement 1 mois après l’intervention.

Si je n’ai plus de douleur, ai-je le droit de diminuer ou supprimer un des traitements ?

Suivez les recommandations prescrites sur l’ordonnance qui vous a été remise. En cas de doute, veuillez contacter votre médecin traitant.

Puis-je prendre mon traitement habituel associé aux anti- douleurs prescrits ?

Oui, sous réserve d’avoir indiqué l’intégralité de votre traitement habituel au cours de la consultation d’anesthésie. Il ne faut pas associer d’autres anti-douleurs.

Quel suivi est mis en place après mon intervention ?

A la sortie d’hospitalisation, vous aurez la date du rendez-vous de consultation post opératoire (J+30 environ). Vous êtes de plus en contact permanent avec votre chirurgien via le site Orthense.

step 01
The anesthesia consultation

Anesthesia is a set of techniques that allows the realization of a surgical act by suppressing or attenuating the pain during and after the intervention in optimal safety conditions.

On the day your surgery is scheduled, an appointment for an anesthesia consultation will be made. If you do not have any particular medical history, this can be organized remotely during a teleconsultation.

This consultation contributes to the pre-anesthetic evaluation of the patient's condition, justifying the prescription or not of additional examinations and possible specialized consultations, allowing an assessment of the operative risk.

step 02
The radiographic assessment

We perform all osteoarticular radiological assessments according to the medical prescription.

EOS radiography allows the study of lower limb deformities (especially hip and knee joints), providing precision and practical information on patients.

In the management of prostheses, it allows for improved computerized preoperative planning to control the good surgical execution and correction of deformations.

step 03
Hospitalization before surgery

You will be welcomed on the day of the surgery at the Pierre-Paul Riquet Hospital admissions office.

The programming department will have informed you of your place of reception. You will then be accompanied to your room in the orthopedic surgery department. A nurse will collect your treatments, X-rays, and documents to be signed.

For the pre-operative preparation, you will be asked to take a shower with antiseptic soap and to wear a blue shirt provided by the establishment.

step 04
Hospital discharge

Once you have been operated on and if there have been no complications, your hospital doctor will set a date for your discharge from the hospital, and the medical secretary will prepare all the necessary documents for a proper discharge.

Before leaving the hospital, take the time to check everything and, if necessary, ask the doctor any questions. You will receive a "discharge voucher" that must be sent quickly to the health insurance fund and your employer to claim your rights.

It is also possible that your hospital doctor will prescribe a new work stoppage for the time they consider necessary for your recovery.

The day before

It is imperative to respect the rules of hygiene.

Hair removal in the area to be operated on should be done exclusively with clippers, as requested by the surgeon.

If you do not have clippers, the hair will be removed at the hospital.

The use of a razor is to be avoided.
