DEC, 2014 :
NP 51 years old gentleman presented with deformed knee. Whenever the patients try to walk he would give way. As a result the patient almost became bedridden for the last 1 yr. Patient had a history of trauma 22 years back and uncontrolled diabetes. Because of the trauma the ligaments which give stability to the joint had been completely damaged. Thus he could not undergo conventional Total Knee Replacement. Previously such patients were advised a knee fusion in which patient is unable to move the knee. This patient underwent Left Total Knee Replacement with special implant (Rotating Hinge Knee). With this special implant we have relieved him of pain as well as given him a good range of movement of the knee. Patient is comfortable and walking pain free with full weight bearing.

Total Knee Replacement 60 years old lady has been suffering from Rheumatoid arthritis for last 30 years. Both her knees got deformed and became painful because of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Her left knee became stiff in a bent posture as a result of which it would not touch the ground. She managed on the painful right knee for last 5 years because she thought that the condition was untreatable. Due to excess load and the arthritis the right knee became very painful and stopped taking load. Because of this she became bedridden . One of her friends who had undergone Total Knee Replacement at Parmanand brought her to us. She successfully underwent replacement of both her knees at the same time.
SpecializedKnee replacement implants and latest surgical techniques helped us to make her knees mobile and straight again. She is now proudly standing on both her feet after months. She came on a stretcher and was able to walk back to the exit of the hospital. Another proud moment for all of us at Sant Parmanand Hospital.
