Hello! My name is Tamara, I am from Tbilisi. I applied to Bookimed with such a complex disorder as coxarthrosis of the hip. I suffered from this disorder during long time. I was born with congenital dislocation of the hip which was cured during the first three years of my life. Then, my family and I were in a car accident and my right hip was broken. I was treated during long time, had skeletal extension, then plaster, the therapy lasted two years until Dr. Ilizarov G.A. installed me Ilizarov apparatus. It was 35 years ago, since that I have finished my studies, got married, born children and grown them up. And I did not feel any inconvenience. Three years ago I felt an acute pain which did not let me neither walk nor sleep and made obstructions to my ordinary life. When I underwent a complete examination and had all tests, I was told that a surgery is the only solution. As I wanted to walk during the rest of my life without any complications and infections and had a guarantee, which our surgeons could not provide me (I don’t want to offend them), I have chosen this particular hospital. I found many clinics in Internet. Several hospitals in Germany and Israel offered me their assistance but for some reason I decided in favour of Helios Hospital in Hamburg. Medical experience of Professor Thorsten Herke inspired me confidence: he has made surgeries to many Georgian patients who can normally walk, ride a bicycle, drive and move at the moment. My choice was also influenced by presence of physiotherapist Sergei Karsten who practices all types of rehabilitation. He uses his own technique of massage and physical therapy. He knows how to develop joints to avoid stiffness of the body and to provide a full range of movements.
