They lead a very painful life till they are able to arrange money for an expensive surgery.

You can get a Hip Replacement/ Resurfacing surgery in India at very low cost by expert and vast experienced doctors and at a world class hospital.
Total hip replacement (THR) is most suited and one of the most common surgical procedures for people with very late stage degenerative hip disease. Some of the important benefits of a THR are, marked reduction in pain and improvement in sleep, most people regain range of motion, physical ability, and quality of life.
A Total Hip Replacement (THR) is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials. It involves surgical removal of the diseased ball (the head of the thigh bone) and socket (acetabulum of the pelvis) and replacing them with a metal ball and stem inserted into the femur (thigh) bone and an artificial plastic cup socket.
The metallic artificial ball and stem are referred to as the ‘implant’ or the ‘prosthesis’. Upon inserting the prosthesis into the central core of the femur,it is fixed with a bony cement.
Each Prosthesis is Made Up of Two Parts :
The femoral component is made of a metal stem with a metal ball on the end. Some prosthesis have a ceramic ball attached to the metal stem. The acetabular component is a metal shell with a plastic inner socket liner that acts like a bearing. The type of plastic used is highly cross linked ultra high molecule weight Polyethylene which is wear resistant.
A cemented prosthesis is held in place by Poly Metha Acrylate (PMMA) cement that attaches the metal to the bone. An uncemented prosthesis has a fine mesh of holes on the surface area that touches the bone. The mesh allows the bone to grow into the mesh and “become part of” the bone.
It is a set of methods, that use computer technology for pre-surgical planning, and for guiding or performing surgical interventions. The computer guides the surgeon in precisely planning the exact amount and angle of bone to be removed during surgery.
When you’re undergoing joint replacement, whether it’s for a hip or a knee, physical therapy plays a critical role in every stage of the process. Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation services help the patient to return back to normal activity quickly after the surgery.
Before you leave the hospital, your physiotherapist will show you a variety of exercises designed to help you regain mobility and strength in your joint. You should be able to perform these exercises at home. You will be shown how to safely climb and descend stairs and how to get into and out of a seated position once you return home. It is a good idea to enlist the help of friends or family once you do return home.
“I just wanted to let you know how things are going with my new hip. I’ve been discharged from PT and have started seeing a personal trainer. Both my PT and trainer are amazed at what I am able to do after my hip replacement in India. I also am thrilled.
I am stronger than I was before and twice as determined to keep things going the right direction! I sent along a few pictures…don’t worry, none of this is beyond my ability and none of it causes any pain?if it did, I wouldn’t be doing it! I’m biking,swimming, using the elliptical machine, and about 2 times a week doing a short run on the treadmill?I hate running so I won’t be pursuing any silly marathon goals or anything.
When I find out if I can hang out upside?down, I’ll send a pic of that too!
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK AND THEN SOME!
Please tell everyone on your staff how amazing I feel and grateful I am for having decided to come to you with my problem! Also if you wouldn’t mind, could you please tell the nurses up on the 11th floor I think?
How wonderful they were and that I’m doing well.
Feel free to inform anyone you think would like to know how I doing that things are fantastic and I am happy as can be! Thanks and will keep you updated on my progress!
