More than 90% of people who have total knee replacement surgery experience a dramatic reduction of knee pain. They also experience a significant improvement in the ability to perform common activities of daily living. The rest of the recovery depends on how you choose to live after this procedure. A healthy, active lifestyle makes it easier for everyone to heal better. With appropriate activity modification, knee replacements can last for many years.

Knee Transplant package in Turkey compared to knee transplant in India:

Turkey offers a very convenient and economical package which includes multiple services for you.

It includes;

  1. A sponsored visa
  2. Ticket for two people – you can bring along any individual to accompany you.
  3. Domestic travelling from the airport to the hotel, hospital and any other place required regarding your treatment.
  4. Accommodation for two people.
  5. Breakfast and lunch for the days you stay there.
  6. Almost all the medical expenses which include lab tests, medicines and other essentials and all other medical expenses.

The exact amount is calculated according to your condition. There are only a few countries which offer this treatment. That includes India too. But people prefer travelling to turkey because of their welcoming nature and hospitality the show towards Pakistani people. Whereas in India, it has become difficult for the people of Pakistan to stay, travel or adjust in their environment. Their lack of cooperation for the family visas and facilities have convinced people to route to turkey instead of India. Most importantly, when you pay for this treatment in India, it covers hospital facilities only. For the rest of the services, you’re on your own. Turkey is undoubtedly the most comfortable place to travel.

Procedure:

Knee replacement surgery is not a complicated procedure. Thus it requires you to come to the hospital on the same day your treatment is scheduled. After getting admitted to the hospital, you’ll be put to sleep through anaesthesia which is decided by the team of doctors dealing you. The procedure itself takes approximately 1 to 2 hours. Your orthopaedic surgeon will remove the damaged cartilage and bone and replace it with the new metal and plastic implants to restore the alignment and function of your knee. You’ll only stay in the hospital for a couple of days. The after effects include a bit of pain which is a natural process of healing, your doctors and nurses will keep you under observation and if there’s any unusual pain, you can notify your doctor about it.

Currently, more than 90% of modern total knee replacements are still functioning well 15 years after the surgery. Following your orthopaedic surgeon’s instructions after surgery and taking care to protect your knee replacement and your general health are important ways you can contribute to the final success of your surgery.

Preparing for life after transplant:

If you’re worried about the complications of this procedure, they’re less than 2% chances for any type of infection or procedure failure and have not occurred to any patients in the near past. But if you’re concerned about the after effects of this, there are no significant after-effects of this treatment but obviously, it being your new knee might behave a bit different. Improving your knee activity is the best and fastest way to recover from the surgery but the restoration of full motion is uncommon.

The movement and response of your knee replacement after surgery can be predicted by the range of activity you had in your knee before surgery. Most patients are able to fully straighten the replaced knee and to bend the knee sufficiently to climb stairs and get in and out of a car. Kneeling is sometimes uncomfortable, but it is not harmful. Most people feel some numbness, stiffness, particularly with excessive bending activities. Moreover, many people also feel or hear some clicking of the metal and plastic with knee bending or walking. This is normal.
