Prince Court Medical Center Has Earned Its Royal Name

The Prince Court Medical Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is making a big name for itself. In 2013 the facility fell at number one (#1) in the world for medical tourism hospitals! This was the first time the MTQUA gave the top spot to a Malaysian hospital. 

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.
