Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

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.
