Hip Replacement:

Surgery in Poland with the best hip replacement materials designed in the UK from DePuy Orthopaedics.

We recommend and offer 2 types of Hip replacement surgery because these are the very best in terms of comfort, performance and durability.

1. DeltaMotion® - the world's first truly large diameter ceramic-on-ceramic bearing offering for the first time the potential of life-long hip replacement surgery (£7,900)
2. Birmingham Hip™ Resurfacing System - hip resurfacing intended for active patients who are under 60 years of age, in need of a hip replacement and where the bone is in good condition (£7,700)
Our highly skilled surgeon can fit any other type of hip replacement you may request, but would not fully endorse alternative choices owing to the advantages of our 2 recommended options. Prices include all peroperation checks,the operation and guildence on phyisotherapy after the procedure.
The 2 recommended options:

1. DeltaMotion® - the world's first truly large diameter ceramic-on-ceramic bearing offering for the first time the potential of life-long hip replacement surgery in a once only procedure (£7,900)

The demands of modern hip replacement are many: They must be durable and stable and offer high comfort and safety. The DeltaMotion® joint allows a large range of motion and is therefore, a recommended solution for active patients with high standards.

Natural anatomy is the model for the new DeltaMotion® hip joint. Prior to surgery, our surgeon uses x-ray images to select the appropriate and specific size of your new anatomically shaped hip joint, which is closely modelled to your natural body structure.

DeltaMotion® is the first real ceramic / ceramic hip replacement – which is a unique innovation using a large diameter ball head with larger contact surfaces to provide greater stability and range of motion, which was previously possible only with metal / metal bearings and cups. Therefore, this is a recommended choice offering more security, durability and maximum mobility owing to the new ceramic–on–ceramic joint.

In the production of our joint prostheses, we use advanced materials. .These are extremely durable and stable. .The ceramic nature of our components prevents abrasion and promotes the highest quality of life for the recipient.. Our surgeon will select the best implant for each specific individual client to enable the transition back to a safe, healthy and natural lifestyle.

The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. During the operation our surgeon fits the anatomically matched joint precisely and the shaft is anchored in the bone without cement. The socket is also cement-free. The ceramic fittings are extremely strong and do not produce any debris and are therefore safer than metal-on-metal surfaces.

As a result, clients can look forward to an implant that produces no debris and has the capacity to last a lifetime and so can go back quickly to fully normal activity. The combination of strength from delta ceramic and mobility from the large sized bearing surface have given it its name, “Delta Motion®”.

In consultation with our surgeon and under the guidance of a physiotherapist, you will learn to gain confidence in moving your new hip joint from the first day after surgery. Initially you will move around with the aid of crutches and will be able to walk unaided within 6 weeks.

During the rehabilitation phase, you will have learned a number of physiotherapy exercises to continue at home in order to keep your new hip fit and active.After or aerobics are permitted. You can enjoy a normal life with freer movement and without pain.that low-impact sports such as swimming, cycling, walking
2. Birmingham Hip™ Resurfacing System - hip resurfacing intended for active patients who are under 60 years of age, in need of a hip replacement and where the bone is in good condition (£7,700)

BIRMINGHAM HIP™ resurfacing (BHR) is only possible in cases where the bone is still in good condition and is intended for active patients who are under 60 years of age and in need of a hip replacement. Adults over 60 who are living non-sedentary lifestyles may also be considered for this procedure. However, this can only be further determined by a review and confirmation of good bone quality. The BIRMINGHAM HIP™ is also proven to successfully treat hip arthritis in younger, more active patients.

Unlike total hip replacement, the BHR resurfaces just a few centimetres of bone, preserving your original joint. The BHR can be compared to having a cap for a tooth.

Because this technologically advanced surgical procedure resurfaces rather than replaces the end of your femur (thighbone), you may participate in physical activity with an implant that is potentially longer-lasting and more stable than traditional total hip replacements.

One recent study of nearly 1,000 patients showed the patients who received hip resurfacing experience less thigh pain and therefore function at a higher level of physical activity than patients age, gender and activity level who received a traditional hip replacement.of a similar

The worn cartilage and damaged first layer of bone are removed and a fresh, low-wearing metal surface is installed. The socket is prepared by shaving off the damaged cartilage and the first layer of bone. A suitably sized replacement socket is pressed into the bone with bone cement used to fill any gaps and holes in the bone. For the BIRMINGHAM HIP, this socket has a new low-wear metal surface on the inside. The BHR Hip takes advantage of one of the orthopaedic medical industry’s most technologically advanced bearing surfaces. The surfaces of the ball and the socket are made from materials that dramatically reduce joint wear when compared to traditional hip implant materials (cobalt chrome metal and polyethylene).

While the implant closely matches the size of your natural femoral head, it is substantially larger than the femoral head of most total hip replacements. This increased size translates to greater stability in your new joint, and it decreases the chance of dislocation of your implant after surgery.

Because the BIRMINGHAM HIP loads the bone more naturally, normal bone loading is enabled and higher levels of activity are typically allowed. Therefore, your surgeon will most likely allow you to gradually return to most activities, including impact activities, following a proper healing and rehabilitation schedule.

3. Standard total hip replacement surgery - the same as that offered on the NHS, using Polyethylene Polpe (18000PLN) - no longer offered by us

This is the traditional method of hip replacement surgery still used in NHS treatments. It is suitable for patients who accept the risk of potentially undergoing further surgery 10 years post operation, as this treatment has a limited lifespan.

These fully cemented metal-on-polyethylene total hip replacements have continued to be the norm in most countries of the world. They are best suited to older, less active patients. When used in young and active people they can loosen within ten to fifteen years and require more complicated repeat surgery. Further, patients with these implants are discouraged from sporting activities and from sitting on the ground. These implants are also difficult to revise after they become loose. Additional restrictions on activities are also likely owing to the risk of dislocation as a result of the small head size.

Owing to these drawbacks, this traditional hip replacement method is declining in popularity and we no longer offer this type of total hip replacement. We recommend one of the modern hip replacements as seen in options 1 and 2 above.

Our Surgeon:
Dr Leszek is a highly experienced consultant surgeon. He has worked internationally and between1994-96 was a consultant surgeon at the world renowned ‘Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic’ in Los Angeles. This clinic is a world leader in the diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic and sports medicine, injuries and illnesses. He then came to the UK and became one of the first surgeons to be trained in the BIRMINGHAM HIP™ by Dr Derek McMinn. After this he practiced as a consultant surgeon in Germany and has recently moved to Poland.
