New Life to the Knees of a 77-year-old patient
Mr. S.K Verma, a 77-year-old male presented with chronic knee pain for 10-12 yrs. He had developed deformity of both knees and his quality of life had deteriorated to the confines of his home. He had tried all modules of treatment like sandhisuddha, brace, holistic etc but had to take medications for pain relief.
After initial consultation, doctors at Chandan Hospital advised him to go for surgery of both knees together because the risk of surgery increased with increase in age. He was operated and was able to stand on the third day of operation.
His post-operation physiotherapy continued in the hospital and he achieved the movement from 0 degrees to 90 degrees within 4 days. He could walk with the help of a walker on the 4th day. The patient was discharged on the 5th day of and was kept on modules and physiotherapy.
