Hyderabad, India, April 19, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- In a complex procedure, doctors at MaxCure Hospitals, Hyderabad, India gave a fresh lease of life to a 60-year-old female who was suffering from arthritis in both her knees. A total knee replacement was performed on both legs in order to help the woman who also had ligamentous laxity with a severe extra articular deformity (bowing) in both her femurs secondary to a childhood neurological problem.
Informing about the procedure on Wednesday, Dr Chandrasekhar, Orthopedic Surgeon at this hospitals said, "In a normal situation she would have required a complex procedure to correct the deformity by cutting the bone and also perform a complex knee replacement surgery. This would have meant a prolonged recovery and extra cost for the patient, however with a help of computer navigation surgery a femoral corrective osteotomy (cutting the bone) was avoided and an excellent outcome could be achieved by normal primary re-placement with minimal morbidity to the patient."
Dr Krishna Kiran, HOD, Department of Orthopedics, at this hospital, said, "We are certainly encouraged by the success we've seen to date with the TKR, and are very excited about the possibility to of doing such complicated surgeries in a simple way which decreases both financial burden as well as hospital stay for the patient. These kind of surgeries also give encouragement to our team to give better treatment to our patients."
