Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery is concerned with conditions associated to the musculoskeletal system. Some of the more well-known procedures are total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, total hip replacement, total shoulder replacement, hip resurfacing, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, arthroscopy, meniscal repair, and spinal surgeries.

The number of patients traveling for orthopedic procedures has increased dramatically over the past several years due to an increasingly older population in many developed nations and the significant cost savings available.

If you are coming to Jordan for an orthopedic procedure, you will need to spend between seven and twenty-one days in the area, depending on the type of procedure. Details of your treatment will depend on your hospital’s particular protocols, but in general, you will start with your preoperative exams on the day after your arrival, have surgery on the following day, then get discharged from the hospital a day or two later. You will then need seven to fourteen days to recuperate and undergo rehabilitation therapy before traveling home.
