Hello,

It is necessary treating your joint problem. For this reason, I would recommend consulting with an orthopedic surgeon for a physical exam and discussing about surgery. Regarding the neurological deficits, unfortunately in post-polio syndrome, there is not too much to be done besides physiotherapy.

Hope I have answered your queries. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka
