Treatment

We had a 69-year-old patient from Iraq who was suffering from excruciating pain in both of her knees. Her family reached to us through our website and submitted to us her medical reports and other documents. Therefore, we helped her in getting treatment in Artemis Hospital; Gurgaon after Easycure did all the formalities.

Background of the Problem

 

Mrs Shukriyah family consulted with many doctors in Uzbekistan regarding the problem. Problems include difficulty in walking and severe pain in right knee. They advised them to travel abroad for medically advanced facilities as the healthcare facilities in Uzbekistan were not equipped for her treatment. The pain was immense, so India was a good option to go as the flight time would be lesser. We showed her reports to Indian doctors and opinion was provided to her along with the cost estimate. The patient came to India on 15th February 2018 and was admitted to Artemis Hospitals.

 

About the Treatment

 

After an initial evaluation of the patient physically, the patient was advised to undergo evaluation and based on results further treatment were to be decided. Results showed swelling in the pain area, tenderness present along the joint line, the presence of crepitus. After evaluating the results, doctors suggested Total Right Knee Replacement be done under CSE. The surgery was performed the next day after all the pre-surgery work was completed. The patient was in a much stable condition after the successful surgery as the pain was much less than before. The patient was advised to follow a normal diet along with the physiotherapy sessions, which will help her to recover fast. The patient is currently under medication in his home country. We at Easycure wish her a swift recovery.

 

 

 

Role of EasyCure

Pick up was duly arranged and our executive went to airport to pick the patient. The patient was diagnosed and treated the next day after his arrival immediately.  The accommodation provided was also near the hospital and was very convenient for the patient.
