Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

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
