Revision Total Knee Replacement to the Rescue!

History:

85-year-old lady was operated elsewhere by another surgeon 5 years back. She complained of lot of pain and it became very difficult for her to put weight on the operated leg.

Treatment:

A friend then suggested that she visit Dr. Amyn Rajani for the treatment. A clinico-radiological examination showed a failed Total Knee Replacement, with a big lytic lesion in the femur. There was a big bone lost in the lower third of femur, which caused a major defect and the implant too had become loose.

Dr. Amyn Rajani performed a Revision Total Knee Replacement with a mega prosthesis to address the bone defect. 

The 1-hour marathon surgery was a success and the patient started walking immediately from the 2nd day of surgery.
