Ethiopian Patient – Golden Knee Replacement
Treatment: Golden Knee Replacement
دکتر: دکتر راجو وایشیا
Condition: Austro Arthritis
بیمارستان: بیمارستان اداپراستا آپولو
An Ethiopian patient came to India with her son to undergo a knee replacement in India. In most cases, a medical professionals in Ethiopia, are outsourced from other countries. And even the outsourced doctors are unable to provide appropriate medical services because of the lack of machines and medicines at the hospitals.
The patient was suggested by their Ethiopian doctor, to come to Apollo Hospital in New Delhi where golden knee replacement surgery was performed on her.
“Golden Knee Replacement has several advantages”...”One it is not allergic, second since the wearing surface is very smooth, the wear of the plastic by the metal is very low, and hence the life of this prosthesis is considered more than the conventional prosthesis. And hence she has high BMI, so, we performed a Golden Knee Transplant on her” said Dr Raju Vaishya the head of Orthopedic Department at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital.
Within one week after the surgery, the patient was able to move her knees.
