Hip Replacement Surgery in Turkey


What is the Hip Replacement Surgery?

Hip replacement surgery is the replacement of the hip joint with an artificial joint called a prosthesis (a kind of implant) due to the wear and damage of the hip joint over time as a description of the surgery briefly.

The hip joint carries body weight, like the knee joint. Therefore, it is one of the most damaged joints. Hip replacement surgery is preferred when other treatment methods are not a solution to hip pain. The most common cause of hip replacement is arthritis.

How is Hip Replacement Surgery Performed?

Firstly, a detailed examination may be performed and tests such as blood tests and x-rays may be required before the operation.

Secondly, the surgery is planned by evaluating the movements and muscle strength in the hip joint.

During the operation, the damaged bone and cartilage are removed and the damaged joint is replaced with a prosthesis under general anesthesia by making an incision in the hip area. The operation takes about 2 hours.

After Hip Replacement Surgery

The hospitalization after hip replacement surgery is usually 2-3 days.

After the surgery, you are asked to walk with support such as crutches. Thus, your movements increase, and the risk of blood clotting decreases. Exercises that you can do in the hospital and at home and physical therapy program are will be recommended to accelerate recovery and gain joint movements and muscle strength. Usually, significant improvement occurs within 4-6 weeks. The healing process depends on how much recommendations given by doctors and physical therapists are followed.

After the operations performedpatients can stand up on the same day with physical therapists.

My aunt had a knee replacement surgery on both her knees and we've seen an incredible progress eventhough it's only been 2 weeks. Doctor is amazing, hospitality is another level, nurses and all procedures are highly professional. As someone who has been to many big hospitals in Turkey, I must say this one is by far the best cause they're health-oriented as opposed to money oriented. Definitely recommend it to anyone especially for orthopedic surgery and physiotherapy.
