With the advancement of surgical procedures and longer life spans, joint replacements are becoming more and more common in the UK and the rest of the world. Avanti Travel Insurance provides cheap joint replacement travel insurance.
When a joint is replaced, the arthritic or dysfunctional joint is removed and an orthopaedic prosthesis is inserted as a replacement. These could include knee replacement, hip replacement (which may be covered free of charge if you call our UK-based office), shoulder replacement and ankle replacement among others.
Although you are advised not to travel long-haul for six weeks after joint replacement surgery, if you do, you should wear specialised anti-embolism compression stockings or tights to support the lymphatic drainage of the leg and, do in-flight exercises, to avoid getting a DVT (deep vein thrombosis). Also remember to take a note from your doctor detailing the procedure you have had and the medication you are required to take. You may also need to make special arrangements with the airline and/or the travel company if you need special assistance.
Many of Avanti Travel Insurance’s customers have had joint replacements and receive comprehensive joint replacement cover for hip, knee, shoulder and ankle replacement conditions, subject to terms and conditions. It is vital to declare all of your pre-existing conditions to the sales agent or online when you purchase joint replacement travel insurance so that you receive a tailored policy to suit your joint replacement travel needs perfectly.
