Hi Dulcie
This might help for the doctor.

For the dentist, you just go to any (preferably on recommendation if you don't want too much pain!!)

Bonne courage!

Hip replacement

Post by Mike »

An update for you on hip replacements following my previous query.

I have recently had my right hip replaced with a metal/ceramic total prosthesis by Dr Mouttet. The results were almost immediate. After 5 weeks I am walking unaided, although I use an ordinary walking stick outside for safety - walking 3 to 5 km a day for exercise. An absolutely brilliant result that I attribute to the exceptional skill of the surgeon and to the excellence of the physiotherapy and treatment at the Centre Helio-Marin in Banyuls-sur-Mer.

Dr Mouttet uses CAD taken from the scan to plan the op in detail with great accuracy. I have a scar of only 12 cm (4.75 inches). His fees are above the convention rate, so you should be prepared to pay the extra or have a good mutuelle top-up assurance.

I cannot recommend him sufficiently highly.
