Rehabilitation packages

One of the most important factors for a quick and full recovery after surgery is proper rehabilitation. Rehabilitation helps recover after surgery as well as prevents formation of blood clots and helps avoid most of the postoperative complications and side effects. We offer two different rehabilitation packages:

11 reasons that make us the most popular orthopaedic clinic abroad

One of the most important factors for a quick and full recovery after surgery is proper rehabilitation. Usually, clinics are not able to offer this due to costs savings. Our patients can choose between two inpatient and outpatient options: rehabilitation with a physiotherapist of the Lithuanian national basketball team, prof. L. Siupsinskas or rehabilitation at a medical SPA.

Our team of 5 orthopaedic surgeons has 10-20 years of experience in the field in total performing over 1.000 different orthopaedic surgeries per year. Moreover, our surgeons are members of various prestigious surgical societies both Lithuanian and international. Our leading joint replacement surgeon S. Tarasevicius is an author of 150 scientific publications in different medical journals, who has performed more than 3.500 joint replacement surgeries during 15+ years of his professional experience.

Members are welcome to share experiences about their visit to the clinic and to discuss all surgery-related matters. No other orthopaedic clinic can offer such group support.

Being a true member of the International Society of Arthroplasty Registries, Lithuania is one of the leaders in low joint replacement revision rates, as only 9% of surgeries in Lithuania require revision in 10 years after surgery. Moreover, with the implants used at our clinic, only 2-3% of surgeries require revision in 10 years after surgery, while revision rates in some other Western countries, for example, USA, is as high as 17% in 10 years after surgery. The implants used at our clinic have been evaluated by other countries’ registries as those ensuring longest implant life, as compared to products of other manufacturers. Moreover, thanks to our active participation in collecting data for the registries, the surgical technique used at our clinic ensures best surgical outcomes.

Our clinic works according to the highest standards set by the European Union. This helps to guarantee the quality of medical services. We care about the safety, comfort and successful results of our patients from all over the world.

Orthopaedic surgeries

Hip replacement

hip replacement, also known as a total hip arthroplasty, is an orthopedic surgery performed in order to restore hip motion and relieve pain of the hip joint. During this surgery a dysfunctional hip joint is changed into a prosthetic implant. Note that hip replacement surgery is performed when all other treatments have not provided enough pain relief. Read more about hip replacement

Knee replacement

Knee replacement surgery, also known as arthroplasty, is generally regarded as an effective treatment for end-stage knee arthritis. It results in an improved knee function and significantly relieves severe pain caused by degenerative joint diseases. All knee replacement procedures are generally divided into 2 major groups, depending on whether the knee is replaced totally or partially.  Read more about knee replacement

Shoulder replacement

Shoulder replacement is a last resort treatment for severely damaged shoulder joint. Physiologically, joint surface is lined with smooth and strong cartilage which allows movements through a wide range of motion. However, due to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or severe joint trauma, lining cartilage becomes thin and rough. As a result, it is painful to move and it limits and disturbs daily activities. In such case shoulder replacement is an option. Read more about shoulder replacement

ACL reconstruction

ACL is usually damaged because of quick turns and sharp movements during sports which require sudden moving out of one place to another, and sudden stopping (e.g. basketball, gymnastics, football, skiing). If a damaged ligament is not treated it can lead to long-term pain and instability of the knee. When ACL ligament is damaged a person usually has trouble putting pressure on the knee, walking, and playing sports. Read more about ACL reconstruction

Rotator cuff repair

Even though some rotator cuff tears may be treated with conservative methods, there are cases that require surgical intervention. There are three main ways  to surgically treat a rotator cuff tear, and the choice of the best method depends on various factors, including the severity of the tear and the unique elements of your shoulder anatomy. Repairing the rotator cuff involves using suture anchors (small rivets), which are used to attach the tendon to the bone. Read more about rotatory cuff repair

Knee arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is a surgical technique that allows a surgeon to view the inside of the knee and treat the damaged ligaments of the knee joint. It is a limited risk procedure with a number of benefits for a patient. Arthroscopic knee surgery is usually chosen instead of other surgical procedures because of shorter healing time, fewer stitches, less pain, and a lower risk of infection due to the smaller incisions. Read more about knee arthroscopy

Hallux Valgus

Untreated hallux valgus causes inflammation, pain, and misalignment of the toes. The symptoms often worsen when wearing uncomfortable shoes. Since the structure of the bones and soft tissue changes, bunions may also be responsible for a decreased sensation around the bunion. Fortunately, it is possible to treat hallux valgus through surgery, and thus, regain pain-free and aesthetic feet. The surgery helps to straighten the big toe, correct claw toes, and remove the ball of the foot (if one is present). Read more about Hallux Valgus surgery

Articular cartilage repair

Articular cartilage can be imagined as a lubricated cushion that covers the ends of the joint-forming bones. It reduces friction and provides a smooth surface for the joint as it bends and transmits weight. When articular cartilage is damaged, one will experience stiffness, pain, inflammation, and reduced range of motion. If left untreated the breakdown of the cartilage will get increasingly worse, eventually leading to osteoarthritis. In some cases the pieces of detached cartilage may get stuck in the joint and become locked leaving the joint motionless for some time. Read more about articulate cartilage repair
