Here are the explanations

Hospital accreditation and comfort

All of our private hospitals for hip replacement surgery are JCI Accredited, the gold standard for international hospitals. These are owned by large international hospital groups, with one being the fourth largest in the world. As Thailand’s medical travel industry was worth over 6.5 Billion dollars in 2015, no expense is spared in making these hospitals safe and comfortable for travellers like yourself.

Our hip replacement patients say the hospital reminds them of a luxury hotel, and not like a cold and clinical environment. All surgeons and senior nurses speak a high level of English.
Australian patients can enjoy private recovery rooms, skyline views, flat-screen TV’s with movies and free WiFi. The hospitals are overstaffed with nurses who love their job, and a sponge bath or shampoo is just a call button away. Our patients enjoy healthy fresh ingredients in their cooked meals. You can even order great coffee from the café or stock up on treats from the 7 Eleven on the ground floor.
More than half of our patients use their hip replacement cost savings toward extra treatments like dental and optical care whilst recovering.

Specialist training and expertise

Our hip replacement specialists are members of the Royal College of Orthopaedic Surgeons. This is their national governing body and ensures the highest standards of training the latest techniques whilst collaborating with other countries.

Just like Australia, training to become an orthopaedic surgeon takes 12 years in Thailand. Surgeons are encouraged to take an ‘international approach’ to expanding their knowledge, and our hip replacement surgeons have each completed over 4 fellowships. This involves many months learning from very senior surgeons in overseas orthopaedic centres in Germany, USA, the UK and more.

We only partner with the most awarded Thai orthopaedic surgeons. This ensures we can be certain they’ve delivered great surgical outcomes for many previous Australian and New Zealand patients.

We encourage every hip replacement patient to do thorough research on their surgeon and private hospital, so we’re happy to present our surgeon’s CV’s for discussion with your trusted GP here in Australia.

Quality of hip replacement implant

Your orthopaedic surgeon in Bangkok will only use the highest quality hip replacement implant. These include the Zimmer and DePuy Synthes brands, which are preferred by most surgeons in the USA and Australia.

Even though Australia’s first robotic assisted hip replacement was carried out in Brisbane in April 2016, this service has been offered in American and Thai hospitals since 2013! This allows more accuracy when placing the hip prosthesis. Our goal is to offer the highest level of quality and technology to patients without increasing their hip replacement cost.

Low Risk of Infection

Hip replacement surgery should be taken seriously. We’re proud to say after 5 years and hundreds of patients, our primary and secondary infection rate is under half the published world average of approx. 2% for this procedure.

You may have heard of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) before, which can be a complication of hip replacement surgery. Every patient’s risk level is personally addressed, and you’ll be taught how to continue any medications to minimise the risk of DVT during your recovery.

Since hip replacement patients are usually over the age of 50, some my have heart problems or other underlying conditions. These can make them unsuitable for serious surgery. Our medical travel experts coordinate all of your pre-travel health tests with the hospital specialists in Thailand and your GP at home. Everyone’s priority is your safety as a patient.

After your hip replacement the doctors and surgeon will keep a close eye on you for any abnormalities. You can have peace of mind our team will be in regular contact with you, your hospital and your hotel throughout your journey.

Rehab after hip replacement surgery

Within the first day after surgery, hip replacement patients are recommended to start moving their new joint. Your physical therapist will use massage and other manual therapies to help with circulation, and you will have daily sessions in the rehab centre to learn how to walk confidently. You can also perform your exercises in a weightless aquatic environment in the hospital’s in-house hydrotherapy centres.

As well as supervising your exercises, your instructors will prepare a program for you to continue with your physiotherapist at home. Our main focus is to see you back in action and living a healthy life!

Bringing family or friends

We understand you’ll likely be nervous about surgery. This is why we encourage you to bring family or friends for support. They can even stay in the same building, only a few floors away in the hospital’s own Medi-Hotel. This means they can keep you company without missing out on a proper night’s sleep.

There’s plenty to do around the hospital, with relaxing massages or pampering at the wellness centre, coffee shops in the foyer, free wifi to stay on track with work, or visiting a nearby shopping centre.

Over 50% of our hip replacement patients take family or friends. For the independent traveller, they can also recover at the hospitals in house Medi-Hotel after discharge. This means they don’t have to travel far to continue their rehab, and can still stay within the medical precinct. Solo patients have peace of mind that attentive nurses will still be on call around the clock.

What happens when I arrive home?

This is the biggest concern for patients returning from surgery overseas. Prior to coming home from your hip replacement, you’ll be assessed by your surgeon to make sure your surgery site has healed and you’re moving confidently on your new hip joint.

After your flight home it’s important to visit your trusted family doctor within the first few days. Our team will make sure you have all your surgical and hospital records to give your GP for safe keeping. This ensures you receive the best follow up care. We also recommend to talk with your doctor about DVT precautions and continuing your rehab sessions with a good quality physio.
