History: 76-year-old female with gross deformity in her right knee.

Treatment: Opting for an ‘extension stem’ procedure is always advisable for obese osteoporotic patients; Dr. Amyn Rajani performed exactly the same on this particular patient. While it adds to the cost, it prevents periprosthetic fractures, which could lead to surgical complications as well as financial ramifications in the future.
