Total Knee Replacement
Listen to Dr Shriram Krishnamoorthy, Consultant, Department of Orthopaedics, talk about arthritis, which is a very commonly used term, and explain what post-traumatic osteoarthritis is.
He shares an example of a patient, Mrs Chitra. When she was in her early twenties or thirties she had an accident, but there was no immediate effect. But 15-20 years down the line, at the age of 58, she started to develop knee pain that made it difficult for her to keep up with her routine activities. As a permanent fix, a total knee replacement was suggested. After a successful surgery, she was able to walk well the very next day and able to climb stairs on the second day . Mrs Chitra thanks MGM Healthcare and is grateful to have been taken care of by the doctors and medical staff here.
This World Arthritis Day, let’s stay vigilant of these injuries and get them treated before they come back and cause harm during the later part of your life. At MGM Healthcare, we always endeavour to give the best patient care and continuously strive to improve the quality of life for all our patients.We aspire to keep doing more, better.
