Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 21 Jul,2014

94 year old Mr.Nasiruddin underwent a successful hip replacement procedure at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi after he suffered a fall and had injured his right hip. The surgery was a crucial one as there was only little hope of recovery considering the patient’s age.

“The surgery was very challenging given the fact that he was a very elderly man and had other problems like extremely fragile bones and weak muscles”, said Dr Rajeev Sharma, Senior Consultant Orthopedics & Joint Replacement Surgeon, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, Delhi
