Haemophiliac receives hip replacement surgery at Lucknow’s KGMU

Lucknow, April 11 (IANS) – Doctors at King George’s Medical University (KGMU) successfully conducted a complex hip replacement surgery on a 37-year-old man suffering from haemophilia. Mohammad Shadab, a Kanpur resident, fractured his left hip in an accident and needed surgery, which was declined by several hospitals due to his condition.

Shadab eventually found treatment at KGMU’s Orthopaedic Surgery Department, led by Prof Ashish Kumar and Prof Shah Waliullah. The surgery, performed on April 3, was challenging due to the patient’s haemophilia and stiff knees. Dr. Mayank Mahendra of the Orthopaedic Surgery Department stated, “The patient is recovering well post-surgery.”

“Joint replacement in a haemophilia patient is very difficult. The patient also had the problem of stiff knees. However, we successfully performed the surgery and the patient is recovering well,” said Dr Mayank Mahendra of Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. “Controlling bleeding during surgery in haemophilia patients is a challenging job,” added Prof Ehsaan Siddiqui, Department of Anaesthesia.
