Introduction

Mr. Syed Ismail had been suffering from painful knees and the issue of reduced mobility for a while. His age has been an important factor in compounding the condition of his knees.
This led Mr. Syed Ismail, a 63-year-old Singaporean national working in Dubai to realize over time and consultations with specialists that a bilateral Total Knee Replacement was the answer to his condition. He started out by reaching out to MediGence and the professionals at the organization immediately swung into action. They made sure that the patient got the right suggestions and recommendations by talking to the best orthopedic specialist in the field. The duly planned and organized consultations also led him to decide upon an exceptional healthcare facility called the Burjeel Hospital Dubai.

His appointments and the stay were planned and organized by MediGence with due consideration to the patient’s needs, requirements, and choices. At least the hospital stay for the patient was planned for 22 September 2020 and this is how he spent 5 days in Burjeel Hospital Dubai.

Pre-Treatment & Process

After the first consultation, Dr. Richard Knebel suggested going with one side first for better recovery, lower risk of complications, and shorter stay in the healthcare facility which would be an advantage to Mr. Syed Ismail. It was the first side surgery that was planned first and the patient decided in consultation with the doctor that he will undergo the second side procedure after 6 months. This translates to the fact that a Staged Bilateral Total Knee Replacement was planned for the patient.

As soon as the patient got admitted to Burjeel Hospital Dubai, UAE, a series of tests were planned for the patient prior to the procedure. These tests were CBC, ESR, blood sugar fasting, blood group, and Rh factor, kidney function tests, liver function tests, test for HIV, test for Australia Antigen, test to rule out Hepatitis C, and a routine examination of stool and urine. Post the initial checkup and evaluation of the patient’s overall health condition which was also checked on the basis of these tests, the specialist and his team prepared for the procedure which lasted for two hours. Post the anaesthesia, the femur bone end was removed and a metal shell was put in its place. Also, the lower leg bone (tibia) end was removed and a plastic piece (channeled) having a metal stem was put in its place.

Dr. Richard Knebel was a true professional as he guided Mr. Ismail really well so much so that the patient was truly appreciative of the specialist in particular. Dr. Richard Knebel is a Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in Knee and Hip Replacement procedures. His qualifications include MD, Orthopedic Surgery (United Kingdom), Drs., Arts, Orthopedic Surgeon (The Netherlands), and Leg. Läkare, Orthopedic Surgeon (Sweden). The doctor has over 25 years of experience in performing hip and knee replacement procedures. He started working for Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery in Dubai in the year 2020 and in addition to the aforementioned procedures also treats patients having hip and knee osteoarthritis.

Post Treatment

The procedure was completed successfully without any complications. The patient did abide by the advice given by the doctor regarding the follow-up care to be undertaken and also stayed in touch with the doctor during the post-treatment period.

The patient went for the procedure on his own unaccompanied by an attendant and MediGence helped the patient in all aspects. One of the important ones was that the patient had insurance so all the coordination with respect to insurance approval was done by the organization. This helped the patient in focusing on getting back to good health with the rest already being taken care of by MediGence. This also included appointment coordination, follow-ups after treatment, and arranging for routine checks during recovery.
