Mehmet Serhan Albayrak, 64, living in İstanbul, was walking in pain, doubled-up on his crutches, due to the wear on his hip joint and cartilage. Albayrak, who suffered severe pain, recuperated after hip replacement surgery.
Prof. Dr Faik Altıntaş, Orthopedics and Traumatology Specialist, said “around 100.000 hip and knee replacement surgeries are performed annually in Turkey. And, around 40,000 hip replacement surgery is performed in a year.”
“I Came on the Crutches with Doubled-Up Position, Walked Out on Foot”
Severe pains of Mehmet Serhan Albayrak started precisely two years ago. Mehmet Serhan Albayrak, who told that he had difficulties in sitting, getting up and walking, stated his experiences with the following words: “I could not walk for a long time. I had pain after walking. When I was sitting, getting up and walking, I felt pain, like a knife stabbing. My quality of life was reduced. This situation also caused pain in other parts of my body. My doctor approved prosthesis surgery for me. I entered the hospital on crutches in a doubled-up position. My advice to patients is to consult a doctor immediately in such a situation. They should not be afraid of hip replacement. Right now, I feel very well. From now on, I will have life comfort. I could not do many activities before surgery. Now I can walk, thanks to the prosthesis, very comfortably."
