Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that your mother either has a degeneration of joints due to arthritis or due to an infective disorder like TB. A detailed evaluation and investigations like MRI are needed to advise regarding the need fo surgery.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
