An accidental fall caused a 65-year-old patient to fracture his leg around three months ago. Immediately, the patient was admitted to a nearby local hospital. Upon examination, the doctor came to the conclusion knee part wasn’t broken.  As 2 or 3 months passed the broken knee became stiff.

Then, the patient was brought to us in the condition and earlier carried treatment was explained. “We have studied that patient’s case completely and could acknowledge the actual knee problem. Due to age other techniques are not possible to repair his knee. That is why we used special implants. They are called Intramedullary rods. We performed knee replacement using some such special techniques which helped the patient to recover fast. He was discharged and went home in just two days. Now able to walk as usual” said Dr. V.
