Medical Tourists Rest Assured with Mtqua

Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA) has launched the very first system of assessment that judges medical centres in 10 key areas directly affecting a health tourist’s well-being. 

Total Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement or total hip arthroplasty is a procedure where damaged hip is replaced with an artificial one called prosthesis. The most common causes of hip damage are wear off of hip joints due to arthritis, injury, or bone tumors.

The surgery typically takes up to 3 hours. After the surgery, pain medications, physical therapy, and activity and weight-bearing restrictions are advised. Patients may be able to sit within one to two days post surgery and are discharged within 10 days of surgery. Full recovery may take anywhere between three to six months. This depends on the overall general health and participation in physical therapy.

This surgery is very safe and an estimated 120,000 such surgeries take place in the US every year.
