Long waiting times in UK…

Because of long waiting times in UK hospitals due to Covid19, I hit upon the idea of having my bilateral hernia surgery done while on a 2-week holiday in Antalya. After making inquiries through Yasmin, I had a short but comprehensive consultation with an eminent surgeon Prof Alihan Gürkan and my operation was scheduled for a day halfway through my stay in Antalya. It went well with keyhole surgery, I stayed in overnight and was discharged the next day, which gave me 6 days to recover before my flight home to Scotland. Yasmin kept in touch throughout, making sure I had transport to and from the hospital, and a special thanks to Fatma, my mentor and guide at the Memorial Hospital on my day of tests and examinations. I telephoned my surgeon a few days after the operation for advice on removing my plasters and he was most helpful and reassuring about my complete recovery. I was not too fond of the breakfast, but considered it as another form of medicine! My flight home was amazingly comfortable without painkillers, although they were definitely needed for a few days after my operation. In conclusion, I would be happy to have other treatment like this, though in a nice sort of way I hope never to set eyes on the Memorial Hospital again. 🙂

A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

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.

Back To Work

4 to 5 months

Back To Sports
