71 yrs. old man from Chatarpur (M.P) had been suffering from Osteoarthritis both knee for last 10 years. In the early stages of his advanced disease he was advised to undergo knee replacement surgery in his native place but he didn’t agree as he was mentally unprepared. The disease gradually progressed and his condition worsened to a stage wherein his knees became severely deformed and crooked.

His body posture became stooped like a 90 yrs old man and he became dependent on other persons or a quadruple stick to ambulate even a few steps that too with immense pain and difficulty. By this time the surgery had become complex owing not only to the severity of the deformity but also to advancing age. Correction of both knees in single sitting was a time taking and complex procedure. Due to lack of adequate facilities and expertise it wasn`t feasible in M.P and hence patient chose to come to Jaypee Hospital, Noida to have his knees replaced by Dr Sanjay Gupta, Additional Director- Joint Replacement and Orthopaedics.


On examination, patient had severe fixed deformities in both knees 35 to 40 degree Varus and 25 to 30 degree flexion. After a thorough preoperative anesthetic check up and detailed preoperative planning, patient was taken up for both knee replacement surgeries under regional anesthesia in single sitting.


Surgery was undertaken by Dr Sanjay Gupta and his team. It was a complex procedure requiring a lot of precision and meticulous craftsmanship as it involved not only correction of fixed deformities but also giving him a stable knee joint.

The surgery was successful. His height increased by 2 inches after the surgery as his legs became straight and within four week's time he started walking independently and was able to carry out activities of his daily living without any discomfort. He is delighted with the outcome of his operation. His post op X ray and clinical photos are attached.
