(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Overview

Total hip replacement surgeryis an orthopedic operation that is frequently performed around the world in hospitals. Last year, more than 332.000 total hip replacement surgeries were performed in the USA. 

During the total hip replacement operation, the prosthetic implant is used to modify the patient’s hip. Many patients who are suffering from bone diseases such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis undergo a total hip replacement operation. These diseases are likely to have an effect on the femur in addition to the acetabulum, in other words, the hip socket. Surgeons replace both structures with prosthetic implants during the total hip replacement surgery.

Preparation

Before the total hip replacement surgery, patients should not be taking any aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, Omega 3 capsules and should not be smoking for at least 2-3 weeks.

How It Is Performed

Total hip replacement protocol states that patients are first administered general anesthesia. When anesthesia starts showing its effect, the doctor makes an incision in order to reach the hip joint, which was damaged by disease.The femur head is carefully removed, and the hip socket or acetabulum is hollowed out with the use of special tools. When this procedure is completed, the implant is replacedwith the femoral stem cemented into the patient’s own healthy femur. The patient’s range of motion is checked in order to make any necessary corrections. If these stages were completed successfully according to the surgeon, the incision site could be closed, and it is time for the recovery period of total hip replacement.

Recovery

The initial recovery period of total hip replacement surgery is about 4-5 days. After this process, the patient can leave the hospital. Regularly the recovery time for total hip replacement operation is around 5 months, which is also affected by the patient's initial state of health.

Risks

There are several risks and complications regarding the total hip replacement surgery, which are periprosthetic fractures, osteonecrosis, loosening hip, dislocating hip, and infections.

Side Effects

Patients may experience pain, bleeding, nausea, and bruising, after the operation.

Success Rates

Patient reviews set the average total hip replacement procedure success rate at 90 to 95%, 10 years after the surgery has been performed.

Before And After

After the surgery, patients should wait for several months before starting to play basketball and jogging. There is physical therapy and exercises included in the rehabilitation program of total hip replacement operation.

Faq

How long before I need to change the prosthesis?  Over 90% of patients go without revision surgery for at least 10 years, and some prosthesis can last up to 30 years. 

Are there any alternatives to a total hip replacement procedure? 
There is an option of hip resurfacing for some of the patients, but if the hip is damaged severely, surgery should be performed.

When can I return to work? 
Many of the patients can go back to work and their daily activities in about 4-5 months.
