The patient underwent hip replacement
star star star star star

He underwent a replacement of the t / b joint. The clinic is good, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. I was with my wife, both were satisfied with the accommodation. Professor Kraft operated, it was at the highest level, he was very pleased, there were no complications, they put him on his feet that evening, on the third day he was already walking along the corridor, on the 5th day he was sent for rehabilitation. healed quickly, the pain from the suture didn’t really bother, after 3 weeks everything went away. Professor Kraft is very attentive, he came in person, answered questions, told the nuances. The junior staff did not speak English well, which caused problems. Rehabilitation is very intense and sensible. Gymnastics, fitness equipment, massages, walks, procedures - everything was selected individually and contributed to a quick recovery. Thank you Bookimed, everything is organized well, quickly and on time. I was very pleased. Проходил замену т/б сустава. Клиника хорошая, палаты удобные и просторные. Был с женой, оба остались довольны размещением. Оперировал профессор Крафт, прошло на высшем уровне, остался очень доволен, осложнений не было, в тот же вечер поставили на ноги, на третий день уже ходил по коридору, на 5й день направили на реабилитацию. зажило быстро, боль от шва не особо беспокоила, через 3 недели всё прошло. Профессор Крафт очень внимательный, приходил лично, отвечал на вопросы, рассказывал нюансы. Младший персонал плохо владеет английским, что вызывало проблемы. Реабилитация очень интенсивная и толковая. Гимнастика, тренажёры, массажи, прогулки, процедуры - всё подобрано индивидуально и способствовало быстрому восстановлению.
Спасибо Букимед, всё организовано хорошо, быстро и вовремя. остался очень доволен.
