Hello! Currently, for hip replacement surgery, there are many methods of anesthetic analgesia that are applied to surgery and to reduce postoperative pain:
The first is a combination of spinal and epidural anesthesia. The anesthesiologist will use a specialized tool to poke the spine to inject anesthetic and insert a small plastic tube (called a catheter) to continue the continuous infusion of local anesthetic after surgery, which can last 48-72 hours. hours after surgery, ensure no pain.
The second is a combination of spinal anesthesia and lumbar neuromuscular blockade. Spinal anesthesia ensures a smooth, painless surgery. Anesthesia of the lumbosacral muscles will reduce pain that persists after surgery. The anesthesiologist will use an ultrasound machine to identify the lumbosacral muscles to inject the anesthetic accurately, the doctor can also insert a small plastic tube (catheter) to continuously infuse the anesthetic after surgery, ensuring the area The hip joint will be slightly numb and no pain will be felt. Patients will easily move after surgery to practice rehabilitation after surgery. Best regards!
