Physiotherapy is also very important for your sister after the surgery It is very difficult to say how much it will help her without examning her take your sister to see an orthopedician and then for intensive physiotherapy/ as advised by the ortho. if you go to a medical college and the orthopedic feels that you just need physiotherapy then the total cost might be 100-150 RS per day for the physotherapy If the ortho feels that you might need more - then the cost may vary according to what is done from what you have told, she will most probably need physiotherapy for 2-3 months at least. St. Johns is a wonderful and very professional, well equipped hospital you can definitely take your sister there for an examination Most people feel that medical college hospitals are not the best option.. but actually they are excellent

Take her to CMC vellore or Hospital bangalore where there are reputed doctors. Take a consultatio as to what can be done for her. and this time after surgery do not miss physiotherapy, it should be continued till the patient is benefitted maximum out of it.
