After consultation with Amy Saracoglu the International Patient Coordinator for VISITANDCARE I made the decision to travel to the Hizmet Memorial Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey for my bi-lateral knee replacement. I arrived at Istanbul Airport 6 hours later than expected due to airline delays and having contacted the hospital earlier, the driver was waiting for me. I was taken to the account desk and after depositing my payment shown to my room. Monitoring started immediately with the surgeon, doctors and nurses. Monday morning I was taken down for my bi-lateral Knee operation then awoke Monday evening in the ICU. The nurses could not have been more helpful. I was returned to my room Tuesday and kept under constant pain management and supervision. During the next 4 days until my discharge on Saturday I was given every care and concern possible by all involved, nothing was left to chance. After being given X-rays, medical reports etc. I checked into my hotel. My trusted hospital driver, who looked after me like a personal valet for my full 12 days in Turkey collected me for return supervisory visits. After 3 weeks since the operation, now back at home, I am capable of walking short distances unaided. I recommend the Memorial Hizmet and all the personnel for the treatment I received highly enough and believe with the advise given to me by (Visit and Care), the Hospital selection , although I am unable to compare with others, was the correct choice and would suggest that any persons requiring any of their available treatments should seriously consider them as an option.

What is Hip Replacement?

Total hip replacement surgery is a procedure that can help people with severe hip damage and chronic hip pain. Hip replacement operations have successful outcomes in terms of restoring pain free living. People with prosthetic hips can walk without an aid, play non-impact sports and function normally.


A Good Candidate for Hip Replacement

Good candidates for hip replacement surgery are people with severe osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or other ailments, and also people who tried less invasive treatments but were unsuccessful. Depending on the patient’s age and the severity of the pain, the doctor may recommend physical therapy and the use of a crutch before recommending a hip replacement surgery.


Hip Replacement Procedure

During hip replacement 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; a ball attached to a stem is placed into it. The hip socket is hollowed out to make a shallow cup and an artificial socket is located. The artificial part of the thigh bone can then fit into the socket. The prosthetic is typically made from cobalt chrome and titanium.
