Hip replacement surgery is often recommended to alleviate severe joint arthritis. In the past, this surgery required a stay in the hospital and months of recovery. With advancements in medicine, hip replacements are oftentimes day surgery. You would arrive at the surgical center in the am, and be discharged in the late afternoon.
It is unfortunate that medical wait times in Canada for joint replacement are months even years long. Depending on your pain level and how long you are able to wait, you may want to consider a private hip replacement. Paying out of pocket for medical care may be against our national pride in the Canadian “free” healthcare system. But as one of our clients put it “I could have gotten a new car or a new hip. My new hip is 100 times more precious to me than a new car. “
So how does a private hip replacement process work? We first have a conversation with you, and determine what your preferences are and where you are in your health journey. If you have a recent set of XRAYs and/or have seen an orthopedic surgeon here in Canada we can start right away.
We try to provide you with more than one option for your private hip replacement. Safe outcomes, affordability, and ease of travel are usually at the top of our clients’ concerns. We discuss these options in detail. Once you settle on a location, we collect your medical records and submit them for a specialist’s review. A consultation usually takes place shortly thereafter.
If you decide to proceed, we start working on all the details of your travels so that nothing is overlooked or missed. This step usually takes a few days to complete and at the end, you will have a detailed medical travel file that is sent to you with all the steps and information you need to follow. We are also available throughout your travel to find answers to your questions and make your travel for a private hip replacement a less stressful event.
There are private facilities in Canada and the US for private joint replacement and both are an option if you choose us to help you. For more information and detailed inquiries please reach out to us toll-free 877 344 3544 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
