Description

The development of the hip replacement operation counts as one of the great success stories of modern medicine. Yet the operation still involves difficult practical choices for the patient and there is little real guidance available. This book equips you with all you need to know about hip replacement and the alternatives. A key question is when to opt for surgery. As this book reveals, much can be done to relieve the pain of arthritis through painkillers, physiotherapy, alternative medicine and useful aids. Once you have taken the decision to have the operation, this book also helps you make crucial choices between an un-cemented and a cemented prosthesis, private versus public care and explores the option of treatment abroad.
