knee-replacement-infection

Infections are rare with knee replacement surgery in Mexcio and rarely involve primary infection, late onset infection or even a superficial infection.

Knee replacement surgery Mexico is conducted in an advanced hygienic operating room with sterile instruments. Antibiotics are given to the patient before, during and after the operation to lower the risk for infection.

Even with typically precautions by our team, infections can occur. The risk for infection is increased in patients with rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes, patients who have been taking cortisone for prolonged periods, patients whose joint was previously infected and patients who had infection in another part of their body during surgery.
