Hi Gaurav, This is very common now and few of my friends have got this surgery and are very happy now. more
thanks a lot to you both. Sir, kindly convey the contact details of Dr. Anil Arora. And if possible pls. let me know how much expenditure would be spent more
Incase pain is disabiling your father to an extent that he is not able to do his day to day activities and pain is not relieved by medicines it may be better to go ahead for knee replacement. this is a fairly safe procedure and done in expert hands can give your father a very comfortable useful painfree life. of course a full pre operative assesment would be required. more
My father is of about same age and he has undergone both knee replacement by Dr Anil Arora at Max 2 years ago at the age if 80. He is now fine and can walk about one km with out pain.
But I feel surgery should be the last resort. You try to give him Artuvedik medicines as concoction (Kadha by boing 10 fresh leAves of Hershingar in 3 cups of water till it remainsone cup of ) adding 1/2 tea spoon of turmeric powder to it. He may have relief after 2/3 months. The pain killers may be stopped once he become comfortable. Almighty shall help him. more
