100 examined in knee, hips problem camp: Karnal, October 30: As many as 100 people were examined in a free knee & hips related problems camp at Puran Hospital, Taraori near here on Wednesday. The camp was organized by Alchemist Hospital, Panchkula.
In camp, Dr Sandeep Kumar Jindal, consultant orthopedics & joint replacement surgeon and Dr Veenu Sharma, physiotherapist from Alchemist Hospital examined patients and gave consultations.
The 30% discount on X-ray, free blood sugar and free BMD test were also offered during camp.
Speaking during occasion, Dr Jindal said that every year, more than 800,000 people undergo total joint replacement surgery worldwide.
Primary candidates are individuals with chronic joint pain from arthritis that interferes with daily activities, walking, exercise, leisure, recreation and work, he remarked.
The surgery aims to relieve pain, restore patient independence and return him or her to work and other daily activities. Knee replacement patients recover quickly. Patients will be able to walk the first day after surgery. Generally, patients can return to driving in four to six weeks, he asserted.
The aim of the camp was also to develop a comprehensive planned course of treatment, he informed.
“We believe that the patient plays a key role in ensuring a successful recovery. Our goal is to involve the patient in his or her treatment through each step of the program. This patient guide will give them the necessary information needed for a safe and successful surgical outcome,” said Dr Sandeep.
Knee joints problems are higher in women as compared to men because the hormone changes that occur in menopause directly affect bone density, he informed.
