60 year old housewife came to our clinic with severe pain & limping and severely bent knee deformity(Varus). She was walking with the support of walker in her house.
She was advised Knee replacement by many orthopaedic doctors but was hesitant to do it partly because of fear of surgery and partly because she had nobody to look after her as her son was working in USA. After seeing her elder sister got operated at our clinic and had was walking well and doing all activites without any difficulty. She finally decided to come to laud clinic for surgery .She wanted to do the surgery when her son comes to India on leave.
