Alternative Surgical options to consider before undergoing Total Knee Replacement »

About half a million Americans alone require knee replacement surgery every year, and this number is expected to increase significantly due to the desire of many older Americans to maintain and prolong active lifestyles. There are many reasons why one may need to undergo knee replacement surgery, such as

  • Osteoarthritis – a disease associated with aging where joint cartilage degenerates until there is no cushioning between joints. About 21 million Americans suffer from this disease annually.
  • Obesity – too much body weight places excessive stress on the hips and knee joints
  • Prior Injury
  • Weak Muscles
  • Nerve Injury
  • Overuse of the knee from strenuous work or sports
  • The desire to remain physically active

Knee replacement surgery normally requires a 12-inch incision and hospitalization on average for a week. Damaged bone and cartilage are removed from the shinbone, thighbone and kneecap. An artificial joint made of ceramic, polymer and metal alloys is implanted to refashion the joint. The patient will require the use of crutches or a walker for a period of 4-6 weeks. Full recovery can take anywhere from three to six months. The replaced knee should last up to 20 years. Read the rest

Top 10 tips before you take a medical trip overseas »

Here are 10 tips you should be aware of before you seek medical treatment overseas.

  1. Be absolutely certain of your medical procedure: you should obtain exact, written details from your primary care or U.S. doctor that detail your diagnosis and preferred method of treatment.
  2. Research your overseas doctor as much as possible: do everything you can to obtain as much detailed information as you can about your doctor: certifications, medical training, etc.
  3. Interview your overseas doctor on the phone: ask anything and everything and ensure you are are comfortable with your choice. If not, choose someone else.
