60-year-old Kevin, national of South Africa, complained of persistent knee pain, which was due to deteriorating Osteoarthritis.

Introduction

60-year-old Kevin, national of South Africa, complained of persistent knee pain, which was due to deteriorating Osteoarthritis.

Kevin was suffering from Osteoarthritis of both knees for the past 5 years, resulting in trouble walking and bending the knees. This made it difficult for him to go to work or carry on his routine activities.

He first underwent knee replacement for his right knee back in 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand. A few years after the previous surgery, his left knee started to hurt as well and the local doctor recommended him knee replacement surgery on the other side as well.

Kevin’s search to look for better treatment for his left knee started in 2018 when he got in touch with MediGence and started exploring his options for the right surgeon, hospital, and destination for his treatment overseas.

Based on the recommendation by Team MediGence, he decided to choose Dr. Inderpreet Singh Oberoi from Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon, India for his Knee Replacement Surgery.

Treatment Process

He arrived in Delhi in March 2019 and was safely accommodated to their hotel by MediGence Patient Care team. He was picked up from the hotel by the assigned Patient Care executive and taken to Artemis Hospital for his first consultation with Dr. Inderpreet Singh Oberoi.

After initial investigations and examining his X-Ray test reports, Kevin was prescribed medications to make the muscles and ligaments of the knee stronger before the surgery takes place. He was also recommended some exercises for the knee to make his ligaments strong enough to sustain the surgery and have a healthy recovery. Dr. Oberoi didn’t schedule the surgery on a near date because his knee at that point in time wasn’t fit to undergo a knee replacement surgery. The doctor advised him to revisit again after 3 months and the surgery will be scheduled to post the reinvestigation if his knee muscles are found fit for the operation.

Kevin flew back to India on the 31st of August as suggested by the doctor. His second consultation with Dr. Oberoi took place on the 3rd of September followed by investigations. Post the investigations and evaluation of his left knee condition, the knee muscle strength was found to be improved and fit for the surgery. Kevin’s admission to the hospital took place on the 5th of September and his surgery was scheduled for the very next day, that is, on the 6th of September.

Post-treatment

The surgery was conducted successfully. He was advised to keep moving his legs slowly from time to time to keep the blood flow maintained in his legs. He attended 6 physiotherapy sessions after the surgery for better recovery. By the end of these two weeks, he was able to walk with ease as compared to just after the surgery.

He returned back to his country where he is now back to work and carrying on his routine activities more confidently and with much ease. He is now able to walk well, comfortably, and without any pain.

Team MediGence wishes Kevin a great and healthy life ahead!
