A team of doctors of Aayush Hospitals performed a rare and complicated knee replacement surgery on a woman. The 52-year-old patient is fine and doing well after the surgery. The woman was admitted with severe osteoarthritis due to synovial chondromatosis and deformity in the left knee. Joint replacement surgeons P. Sivaiah and T. Balaji performed the procedure with imported total knee prosthesis having long extension rod.
The anaesthesia team was headed by chief anaesthesiologist Y. Ramesh Babu.
Knee replacement, along with fixing the fracture in a single stage, is a very rare procedure performed in very few hospitals, said the Aayush Hospitals doctors.
