Once a person starts to age, it’s his/her bones which are affected the most. Talking about problems caused by bones, joint pain or knee pain is something which every old age person complaints of. While some of the cases are just seasonal and go away and come back time to time, the ones having osteoarthritis or osteoporosis have it difficult throughout the year.
Among other cases at Bansal Global Hospital, recently one 70 years old elderly person consulted our orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Suresh Bansal, over chronic pain in the knees. The medical history of the patient included:
- An old case of Spondylolisthesis with PIVD
The patient was having difficulty in walking even less than 50m of distance and was also limping while walking. Painkillers hardly helped now that the pain worsened.
A knee replacement surgery was done at Bansal Global Hospital by Dr. Suresh Bansal and his team and the results are commendable. The surgery was followed by aftercare at the hospital which included physiotherapy and timely medications.
The patient is doing well now and to put it in his words, “Dr. Sahab, you increased my age by 20 yrs.”
If you or any elderly at your home is suffering from bone-related problems, we recommend you to consult our specialists once and get their expert opinion about what can be done to minimize the pain and maximize mobility.
