Dental Implants Abroad Can Save You up to $3,000

A dental implant in the U.S. costs around $4,000— $3,500 in the U.K. The same procedure can be done in Thailand for as little as $1,500, Turkey: $1,000, Mexico, Costa Rica and Colombia: $850.

Hip Resurfacing

Hip resurfacing surgery is replacement of damaged femoral head (top of the thigh bone) and sometimes the socket where the hip meets the thigh bone with artificial implants. The major advantage of hip resurfacing is that it requires less bone removal compared to hip replacement. This makes any revision surgery in the future easy.

Patients are usually discharged home within three days of surgery. Physical therapy is advised and pain medications are given. At six weeks, patients regain full hip movement and can attend to the essential activities of daily living. Eventually, patients can return to sports and heavy labor after full recovery. Full recovery takes anywhere between three to six months after surgery.
