My mother who is 73 years old has knee joint problem on her right leg. She has undergone surgery 5 years back for her left knee and now i am planning to get her right knee also operated. Can you suggest a good orthopaedic surgeon for joint replacement in Bangalore please.

Thanks for sending query to us.

Well I took little time to answer, as your question was a tricky one.

It is always difficult and not proper to recommend a name of someone, at online forum. Besides that, I practice away from Bangalore, therefore I do not have any personal reference too.

As such, all orthopedic surgeons at Bangalore are doing great work. I suggest you to go to a good hospital with a dedicated Knee Surgeon for surgery of your mother. Be careful, the surgeon himself should have good experience of knee surgeries.
I am sorry, as I am unable to give you a reference.

Let me know if there is any other query, I shall try to guide you.
