PUNE: Giving respite to those suffering from knee pain, Ruby Hall Clinic, Wanwadi is celebrating ‘Total Knee Replacement Month’.
The hospital is set to offer an attractive package of Rs 1.75 lakh, all inclusive for total knee replacement, along with 20 per cent discount will be offered to patients for expert screening, consultation and further investigation on arthritis and joint replacement.
When one suffers from bone and connective tissue disorders, traumatic knee injury or arthritis, the damage, inflammation and pain can limit the ability to flex and extend one’s knees. Over time, the deterioration of the joint and surrounding tissue can make it difficult to perform basic daily activities. Providing dramatic relief for over 90 per cent of those who have undergone this surgery, total knee replacement is considered one of the safest procedures in orthopaedics.
Dr Ashraf Khan, a consultant orthopaedic specialist at Ruby Hall Clinic, Wanwadi, said, “The goal of total knee replacement surgery is to relieve knee pain and increase knee function by resurfacing the bones that meet at the knee joint. We remove damaged portions of bone at the end of the thigh-bone and top of the shin-bone and replace them with prosthetic components.”
Dr Harish Keswani, consultant orthopaedic specialist at Ruby Hall Clinic, said, “Understanding that the cost of such procedures is what causes people to think twice before getting it done, we are motivating to celebrate total knee replacement as a month-long activity wherein patients can avail exclusive and attractive offers that will take them towards an active tomorrow.”
