I knew I needed to start the treatment immediately, or I would have serious complications. I have worked in Prague for two years, and decided to be treated here.

Review: hip replacement

Having fallen down, my mother aged 65 stopped walking because of the hip fracture.

We were recommended the replacement in Germany for about 15-20,000 EUR. My colleague told that the Czech Republic would be cheaper.

I contacted the medical center by myself and received the prices. All the procedures including the diagnostics cost 2 times cheaper.

After arriving we immediately noticed that the medical center was modern, the nurse and the doctor spoke Russian and the meals were quite good. It came out after the surgery that we could use the implant of Czech production, which would have been even cheaper.

My mom stood up on the second day after the surgery, and started walking in a week assisted by the walking stick.
