Guntur-based orthopaedic surgeon Busireddy Narendra Reddy performed a unique interactive live joint knee replacement surgery at Government General Hospital, which was streamed live to a group of orthopaedic surgeons who are part of an International Masters Course at Vapi, Gujarat.

Dr. Reddy performed the surgery on a 54-year-old man with symptoms of osteoarthritis, interacting with fellow surgeons and clarifying their doubts while performing the surgery. Orthopaedic surgeons from 23 countries took part in the seminar at Vapi.

Beginning with a classical incision on the knee, Dr. Reddy extricated the damaged femur and replaced with a gold implant designed to last for 20 years.

Minister for Civil Supplies Prathipati Pulla Rao, local MLA Modugula Venugopala Reddy, Guntur East MLA Sk. Mustafa later complimented Dr. Reddy for performing the delicate surgery.

Free surgeries

“The live joint knee replacement surgery has yet again showed that Guntur is emerging as a centre for knee replacement surgeries. I have decided to do at least 20 free surgeries on behalf of Unnati Trust,” said Dr. Reddy.

Superintendent, GGH, Raju Naidu, and Head of Department of Orthopedics, G. Vara Prasad, were present.
