Since when is she having this problem?
May I know when it was done?
2 years back
Let me brief you.
This is a condition of age aggravated by other factors.
Weight and cessation of period are other factors.
Various forms of treatment are been done for this problem.
ok,could pls suggest me some of them
When none of this are provides relief and when the problem has worsened to the extreme surgery is planned.
Few tests like X-rays and MRI scans help the doctors to know how worse her condition is and whether or not surgery needs to be done.
calcium supplements, physiotherapy these things could you suggest some medicines
I shall do that.
But the next step to treat her problem is to consult an orthopedician for examination.
He/she can get her knee x-rayed and see for the changes.
if the arthritic damage is severe, he can suggest pain killers / steroid injections or hyaluridin injection, etc with or without plan for surgery.
Along with it he can also suggest the calcium supplements like Tab. Shelcal or omnical one tablet a day.
could you suggest any best hospitals
Calcium XXXXXXX supplements like milk and dairy products, meat, egg, green vegetables, etc. should be taken.
If you are from Bangalore, you could consult doctors at Hosmat who are pioneers of orthopedic and spine treatment.
At last, as I said in the beginning, there are other factors which aggravate this osteoarthritis
i am from hyderabad
and one such important factor is weight.
Hence it is very important to reduce weight.
could you suggest any best hospitals in hyderabad
If you can help her to reduce her weight, there are 40 to 60% chances that you can prevent surgery on her.
*surgery will only help her in reducing the pain.
It may not give back her normal walk.
If you are from Hyderabad, then I do not have any personal reference. But I can see that Udai Clinic at Chapel Road, Hyderabad
specializes in orthocare.
Have you followed?
Do you have any other query?
nothing that it
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
