a-1 osteoarthritisSome of the most common health conditions leading to hip replacement surgery include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors, osteonecrosis, injuries or fractures.  Hip replacement surgery is meant to improve mobility, eradicate or relieve pain, and enhance the hip joint.  On average, over 200,000 seniors in the United States fracture a hip every year.  Within a year of injury, about 30% of fall victims pass away.  For those who survive a hip fracture, AARP reports that 66% of the elderly won’t be able to use the toilet without assistance; 31% cannot get out of bed without assistance; and 20% won’t be able to dress themselves.  Hip replacement surgery is for candidates who cannot function on a daily basis without severe pain.   A-1 Home Care prepares families in La Mirada for post-surgery care when their elderly loved one returns home.

When discussing about treatments for prostate cancer, first option that often suggested by doctors are radiation or hormonal therapy.  However, a new study suggests that surgery, in the form of a  prostatectomy, has a extremely high 10-year survival rate at 92%.  In earlier days, doctors did not think surgery was particular a good option for those with advanced/aggressive form of prostate cancer.  However, surgery is not believed to be a good long term control option for such form of the cancer according to this article in the AARP.  If you or your loved ones are living with prostate cancer, speak with doctors about prostatectomy surgery being an option during your next visit.
