Have you heard the news? That total hip replacement surgery is possible in one day? Yes! As surgeons say, “if you come to the hospital at 10 am in the morning, you can confidently take discharge at 6 pm, the same day.” When I got the information, I literally jumped on my bed in amazement. My husband needed a hip replacement surgery and that’s when my ‘curious to know’ instinct was raised.
Well, getting into this one-day affair:
Unlike the traditional method, hip replacement surgery today can be performed in a procedure that reduces pain and fastens healing time; the patient gets his normal strength back quicker.
While existing method is to cut through muscles and ligaments that required days of therapy in the hospital to recover, this one-day total hip replacement surgery approach follows the minimally invasive anterior method. However, the ultimate purpose is restoring your movement problems and permanently treating that source of pain.
Isn’t that wonderful? Best part is you can recover in the comfort of your home, amidst your own people. Moreover, the additional hospital charges will be reduced.
How is the total hip replacement procedure?
Giving you a brief on this anterior approach of total hip replacement surgery – the surgeon makes an incision from the front of your knee in a way that your ligaments and muscles don’t get cut or disturbed. He very carefully replaces the damaged portion with an artificial one.
There are mainly two techniques –
- Single incision
- Two incision
One of the benefits of this new practice is, it reduces your post-surgical pain as well. Believe me; it is very simple approach and my husband is walking perfectly now.
Hip Replacement Surgery Recovery Time
This may vary with different individuals. While you can get back home on the same day of surgery, driving can be allowed after two weeks only. If golf is your favourite pass time, you can confidently play after 6 to 8 weeks. I would suggest you to consult with your surgeon for hip replacement surgery recovery time and post-treatment care.
Walk around, breathe the air in and enrich your living!
What more? Let’s talk about the cost!
Yes, Cost! To most of us, money is the 1st thing that comes to mind after we decide to avail the treatment, right? Well, in Australia, this new surgery procedure is certainly available in few places, but problem is cost of hip replacement here is much expensive. Are you ready so spent huge?
Perhaps not! Then, flying overseas is the finest and most convenient alternative you have now. Some foreign countries like Thailand, Singapore, India have already proved their excellence in the field of medical service. They have state-of-the-art infrastructural set-up, world-renowned doctors and surgeons, trained and skilled team to attend patients.
Be it Australia, UK or USA, one major issue is the long waiting list; but in overseas countries, there’s no waiting time.
Bringing the context of cost again;
As expense is your worry, let me tell you that hip replacement surgery cost is shockingly cheaper, compared to Australia. That’s because the cost of living in those countries is also low. However, low expense doesn’t mean low quality. Today, like you and me, more and more people are looking forward to or travelling overseas to avail this wonderful package of “cheap rate and high quality.”
You can save around 70% in hip replacement surgery cost in countries abroad.
Now, truth is you won’t be able to visit a foreign land, find out a good surgeon and avail cheap cost of hip replacement. So, as we did, you can hire a medical tourism company who would assist you throughout your trip. They will help you get the best country, best doctor and of course, best treatment.
