Turkey is an excellent choice as a destination to have hip replacement surgery. The country’s health care standards have risen steadily with its aspirations to join the European Union, and the country is clearly ahead of many EU members in respect to various aspects of its medical services. Costs are well below similar service costs in the West, English is widely spoken among the educated team members, and many hospitals have international accreditation such as Joint Commission International, certified on an American-level standard of care.
Patients who have chosen to have hip replacement surgery and other orthopedic surgeries in Turkey often observe that they receive warmer and more personal attention than they have at hospitals in the UK and USA. Total hip replacement may be a suitable option for patients with severe hip damage and chronic hip pain. Hip replacements in Turkey and elsewhere tend to have a high rate of success in terms of restoring pain free living. Individuals with prosthetic hips can walk without a cane, play non-impact sports and function normally.
Patients should be prepared to stay 7-10 days in the vicinity of the hospital when undergoing a hip operation. Treatment will begin with a pre-op exam to confirm the necessity of the operation, which may take place as early as the next day.
During the operation, an incision is made on the outer aspect of the hip, 4-6 inches down the length of the leg. The top end of the thigh bone is removed and a ball on a stem is placed into it. The hip socket is hollowed out to make a shallow cup and an artificial socket is placed into it. The prosthetic is typically made from cobalt chrome and titanium.
After the operation, physiotherapy is required. The stitches from the incision can be removed 2 weeks after the operation. The tissues around the hip will take about 2-3 months to heal, during which time you should be careful not to exert too much stress on it, especially when getting up off the floor or out of low chair.
Those coming to Turkey for a hip replacement can expect to find a very modern and advanced health care and tourism infrastructure. Although the required rest and relaxation after the procedure tends to prohibit tourist activities that require mobility, patients can still enjoy world-renowned Turkish cuisine, and do some memorable sightseeing by car. Historical sites such as the Bosporus straight, the ancient city walls and the seemingly unending number of beautifully constructed Mosques can be comfortably appreciated with the help of a experienced driver.
