My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Overview

Hip replacement surgery involves replacing the hip joint of the patient with the prosthesis. There are two main types of surgery:

● Total hip replacement 
● Partial hip replacement 

Even if they have the same procedure, they are performed to treat different conditions.

Total hip replacement generally is used for the treatment of bone diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Total hip replacement surgery is performed because these two diseases have the risk of affecting the hip socket (acetabulum) and femur.

In addition; hip replacement surgery is performed for the treatment of patients with a broken femur. In this surgery, the head of the femur is replaced with a prosthetic implant.

Hip replacement surgery, which is the most common orthopedic surgery of today, is a solution for patients with hip fracture and arthritis pain. In 2014, 332,000 people had this operation in the USA alone.

Preparation

Patients should stay away fromomega 3 food supplements or capsules, herbal or green teas, anti-inflammatory drugs, and aspirins or any kindof blood thinners 15 days before the surgery.

How It Is Performed

Total Hip Replacement 

The operation is performed under general anesthesia, and the incision is made to reach damaged joints. Then the surgeon starts to remove the forum head and continues to engrave the acetabulum (hip socket). When these parts of the hip removed, and the femur is ready for the implant, the surgeon will start to place the implant, the femoral stem firmly adheres to the patient's femur. The surgeon verifies the patient's range of motion when the patient is implanted. When the desired result is obtained, the surgeon closes the incision, and the healing process can begin.

Partial Hip Replacement 

Partial and total hip replacement surgeries are similar but to some extent. The only difference is that the acetabulum is not engraved and there is no replacement with a prosthesis. During this operation, only the femoral head is replaced.

After surgery, the patient should stay in the hospital for 4 days. The patient can stand, walk, or sit within one to two days. The average healing time of hip replacement surgery is 4 to 5 months.

Recovery

From the first day after the operation, the patient is required to receive physical therapy. For the operation to be successful, continuous exercise and consultation with the therapist are necessary. During the healing process, sports such as tennis, running, and basketball should be avoided.

Risks

Complications of a hip replacement can include: 

● Infection 
● Hip dislocation 
● Hip loosening 
● Osteonecrosis 
● Periprosthetic fracture 

It should be noted that hip replacement problems are rarely observed,and complications are few.

Side Effects

The patients may experience some pain in the operation place after a few days from surgery. Also, patients may have nausea due to anesthesia, bruising, and some bleeding.

Success Rates

The success rate of replacement procedures is around 90 and 95%, 10 years after the surgery.

Faq

- Are there any alternatives to hip replacement surgery? 
Yes, a minimally invasive technique called hip resurfacing. Eligibility for this procedure depends on the patient’s type of injury. 

- How long does the prosthesis last?  There is a 90 to 95% success rate at 10 years after the surgery, but some hip replacements can last up to 30 years. 

- What are the main types of hip replacements? 
There are three main types of hip replacements, each having advantages and disadvantages: ● Metal on plastic ● Ceramic on plastic ● Metal on metal. The material choice is usually made with the help of your surgeon.
