Successful Hip Replacement Surgery at NSH Guwahati

Aftab Alam got his left hip infected by tuberculosis during his childhood, which was treated but had a permanent damage to the ball and socket joint of the left hip. He is 25 years of age now and is running a grocery shop. The damage in the joint made him experience continuous pain in his left hip, making it difficult for him to do daily activities. He started to walk on one leg, and the condition only worsened with time. He consulted many centres in Shillong and was diagnosed with avascular necrosis of femoral head with secondary osteoarthritis. This is a condition where the blood supply to the ball of the hip joint decreases and due to this it gradually degenerates.

Aftab’s intensity of pain increased day by day. He was advised to undergo Total Hip Replacement of the left hip. His relatives were apprehended by the name of replacement and were confused about whether to go for such a major surgery or not. He was referred to Narayana Superspeciality Hospital, Guwahati, Bafna by one of the very knowledgeable and renowned doctors from the region. Aftab was investigated for his fitness level before being admitted in the hospital for the surgery.

Total Hip Replacement with uncemented prosthesis was done on his left hip. This is technically a very demanding procedure done in depth of the hip joint, where the ball and socket are replaced with a prosthetic hip joint. Total Hip Replacement till date is one of the most successful surgeries amongst all forms of surgeries in medical sciences.

The complex surgery was performed by our team of experienced doctors and technical staff. Aftab was able to walk the very next day of it and was discharged on the third day itself. He left with immense satisfaction and happiness, as after so many years he could finally walk with no pain.

We wish him good luck and a very healthy life in the future. Narayana Superspeciality Hospital, Guwahati, Bafna offers both hip and knee replacement surgeries to the patients of the region, assuring a better quality of life.
