Why is the cost of orthopedic surgery in Budapest, Hungary so much cheaper?

Medical researchers in the U.S. recently went undercover to study the cost of hip replacement surgery.  Most hospitals did not want to release the total price of hip replacement surgery, but the ones that did had a wide range of prices:  the cheapest surgery was $11,100 & the most expensive was $125,798!

Who is a candidate for knee replacement surgery?

Sometimes, knee pain can’t be relieved with an alternative diet, pharmaceutical medication or physical therapy.  Painful knees may be the result of repetitive abuse, such as playing sports or suffering a work related injury.  But you might also need knee replacement surgery to relieve the pain of regular wear & tear from knee joint degeneration caused by age or arthritis.    


If you suffer from:

  • knee pain or joint pain caused by a repetitive injury or everyday wear & tear
  • arthritis of the knee, including swelling & pain when walking or using the stairs
  • knee stiffness, including limping, limited range of motion or weakness in the knee joint

If you are suffering from these indications, the first step is to see your local orthopaedist.

           Your second step is to contact BeautyHungary for more information!
