She visited Metro Hospital Faridabad joint disease OPD for consultation. After all investigations, she was diagnosed to have dislocated knees, a very rare medical condition. It means two bones (femur and tibia) that come together to form the knee joint have been thrust out of place and not in contact with each other because of which she could not move her knees and her legs bent permanently. Dislocated knee is an extremely painful condition, a delayed treatment of a knee dislocation may also result in loss of the leg.

She started walking with the support from the very next day.

Dr Dogra and his experienced team in knee surgery had the goal to perform safe and meticulous surgery in an efficient and effective manner which was successfully accomplished.
Dr. Anuj Dogra, Sr. Joint & Knee replacement surgeon said, “It was a challenging case for us, as the arteries supplying the blood to the leg were close to the knee structures and extremely fragile, which made procedure more complicated. It took hours to complete the procedure. Now the patient will have faster recovery with improved quality of life. The patient is already delighted as she stood and walked after ages.
