I was suffering from severe knee degeneration for the last few years and have been consulting various orthopaedic specialists. Even my movements inside the office, leave alone, going out for official meetings, had become extremely difficult and excruciatingly painful. I was counselled that Total Knee Replacement (TKR) was the only solution to better the quality of my life. However, I was advised to get the surgery on one knee first and then, after a few months, on the other. This required hospitalization and rehabilitation twice. Further, I was also advised to go for the traditional chrome cobalt prosthesis which has a reported life span of say 15 -20 years. I was 51 years old when I met Dr. Niraj Vora in May 2011.
The first consultation with Dr. Niraj Vora completely brought in a great amount of confidence in me, as he advised Bilateral TKR (simultaneous TKR for both the knees) as most suited for me. I requested him to consider if I could go for ‘Oxinium’ prosthesis, as these were expected to last much longer than the chrome cobalt ones. Without any hesitation, he advised me that Oxinium joints are relatively new, and that clinical tests have proved them to be several times stronger than traditional material. The hospital did not have stock of these new joints at that time and Dr. Vora took special efforts to procure ‘Oxinium’ prosthesis for me.
I thank from the bottom of my heart, and my family and I are indebted to him for his professional skill, quality of treatment, self confidence and above all, his kindness.
