Patient Recovers After Partial Hip Replacement Surgery
A lady who suffered from a hip fracture and was bedridden for 6 months has made a full recovery after undergoing a partial hip replacement surgery at Chauhan Medicity hospital in Pathankot.
The patient, identified as Mrs. xyz (not possible to share name as per GDPR), had fallen down at home and fractured her hip. She was unable to walk or move around without assistance and was confined to her bed for 6 months.
She was then referred to Dr. Hakam Singh, a leading orthopedic surgeon at Chauhan Medicity. Dr. Singh performed a partial hip replacement surgery on Mrs. xyz. The surgery was a success and Mrs. xyz was able to walk next day. Most patients are able to walk immediately after surgery.
“I am very happy with the results of my surgery,” said Mrs. xyz. “I can now walk and move around without any pain. I am grateful to Dr. Singh and the team at Chauhan Medicity for their excellent care.”
Symptoms of a hip fracture include pain in the hip, thigh, or groin, difficulty walking, and swelling in the area around the hip. If you think you may have a hip fracture, it is important to see a doctor right away.
Treatment for a hip fracture depends on the severity of the injury. In some cases, the fracture can be treated with a cast or splint. In other cases, surgery may be necessary.
A partial hip replacement is a surgery that replaces part of the hip joint. The ball or socket of the hip joint is replaced with a metal or plastic implant.
A partial hip replacement is a less invasive surgery than a total hip replacement. It is also a less expensive surgery.
The recovery time for a partial hip replacement is shorter than the recovery time for a total hip replacement. Most patients are able to walk with the help of a walker or cane within a few weeks of surgery.
Mrs. xyz is one of many patients who have benefited from a partial hip replacement at Chauhan Medicity. Dr. Singh and his team are experienced and skilled surgeons who provide excellent care to their patients.
If you or someone you know is suffering from a hip fracture, please consult with Dr. Hakam Singh or another qualified orthopedic surgeon. With proper treatment, you can make a full recovery and get back to your normal life.
