· The initiative is part of Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon’s plans to establish its presence in western UP through such associations
Meerut, June 2015: Gurgaon’s leading super specialty Paras Hospitals has entered into an association with Anand Hospital, one of the Meerut’s leading health providing facilities to provide advanced support in performing high quality joint replacement procedures in the city.
The initiative will help patients in Meerut receive medical support from some of India’s leading orthopedic and joint replacement experts. At the same time, it is also part of Paras Hospitals long-term strategy to establish its presence in multiple cities of western Uttar Pradesh.
As part of the tie up, doctors from Paras Hospitals performed its first knee replacement in Meerut today on a 71-year-old man suffering from advanced stage osteoarthritis.
The patient who was suffering from knee pain for the past 8-9 years had deteriorated in condition and was finding it difficult even to walk since the last 6-8 months.
Dr. Vivek Logani, Chief of Joint Replacement, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon and Dr. Deepak Thakur Senior Consultant, Joint Replacement, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon performed the knee replacement surgery recently at Anand Hospital, Meerut.
“Osteoarthritis is a part of ageing and indicates the wear and tear of our joints because of over use. However, when this wear and tear becomes extreme, even normal daily exercises like getting up from the bed, going to the washroom and walking become extremely difficult. This not only impacts the mobility of the affected person and his/her state of mind but also increases risk of diseases due to inactivity. Joint Replacement is a credible and safe option to restore movement and normal lifestyle in affected people. However, it is a very critical surgery that needs highly experienced surgeons who can perform it with high precision,” Dr. Vivek Logani, Chief of Joint Replacement, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon.
Knee Replacement may also be necessitated in case of injury, or rheaumatoid arthritis, and may provide much relief to patients suffering from immobility of the knee joint.
“It is essential for healthcare services providers to make sure through different routes that advanced medical technology and expertise does not remain limited to metropolitan cities but also reaches smaller towns and tier II cities like Meerut where demand for high quality healthcare is high. We hope this association will be helpful for the people of Meerut,” Dr. Deepak Thakur Senior Consultant, Joint Replacement, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon.
