Fri, Jun 7 10:51am · conformis hip replacement device in Joint Replacements

Just information, had the Conformis total hip replacement May 20th 2019, and so far pleased only pain is at incision, only burning at times. No hip pain, which is so great, as I waited for 18 months for a physician who would use the conformis hip. I chose that device as I have scoliosis, and research had proved that just any device "off the shelf" would NOT be appropriate for my spinal deformity, although the 5 orthopedic surgeons I consulted denied that fact . In essence, telling me that the research, and my common sense were totally in error, only they knew the facts. will keep sending results as I heal, for more information to those considering THR. thanks martha

Thu, Feb 14 9:55am · Has anyone had sharp thigh pain after hip replacement in Joint Replacements

Hello, I have followed all posts since June 2018, as I needed THR, and was so concerned regarding all the issues, which were not addressed by the surgeons in a meaningful way. Research indicates that the Conformis Hip addresses many of the issues of misalignment, as the device uses 3D printing to make a custom fit for patient. I found a surgeon using Conformis Hip, and surgery is soon. I will post my experience to help inform on the device, as I am saddened by everyone's suffering when by all accounts of THR WAS TO BE THE SOLUTION, NOT MORE PAIN.

No, not TENS, the PEMF was developed by NASA during space program to ward off loss of muscle, bone integrity, when astronauts were suspended in space, also Russia worked on the principal and uses it NOW in their healthcare system for many diagnosed ailments, many studies published from around the world on its uses in cell experimentation, just google and PUBMED will show many successful studies. I am going to purchase a device and see what happens, google orthofix for a start, used for bone stimulation of non healing fractures, also.
