Muhammad Ashfaq's Story
Before we dive into the gory history of Muhammad Ashfaq’s ailments, it is our request to please donate for Ashfaq’s hip replacement surgery. Please help him walk again.
Six months ago, Muhammad Ashfaq fell in the bathroom and sustained trauma to his hip joints. At first, he took some painkillers for relief. However, over a few weeks, the pain reached a point of no return. Later, it restricted his ability to walk as well. Upon consultation, Muhammad Ashfaq was diagnosed with bilateral avascular necrosis (B/L AVN). This AVN is the death of bone tissue secondary to loss of blood supply.
The only option to treat this defect was total hip replacement surgery. It is a surgery to replace the damaged hip joint. During the process, the surgeon replaces the old joint with an artificial joint (prosthesis). While this surgery promises a pain-free life to Muhammad Ashfaq, it is certainly not an affordable procedure.
Unfortunately, Muhammad Ashfaq cannot afford the hefty cost of this surgical procedure. Due to his deteriorating health, Muhammad Ashfaq has been out of work. His wife works as a house help and hardly manages to earn PKR 4000 per month. They live in a rental house. Therefore, they are in no position to arrange for Ashfaq’s Hip Replacement surgery. Ashfaq’s wife told us:
“It breaks my heart to see him lying on the bed, wailing in pain. He tries so hard to conceal it, but the immensity of the pain doesn’t let him. Please help him get better.”
As per his doctor’s advice, Muhammad Ashfaq has registered his case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to get him back up on his feet as soon as possible. But, we need your help with that. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Ashfaq’s Hip Replacement as much as you can. Donate now!

Muhammad Ashfaq's Story
Muhammad Ashfaq, aged 42 years, slipped in bathroom around six months ago. As a result, his right hip was injured and he faced difficulty in performing day to day tasks due to restricted physical movement. On medical check-up in a local clinic, he was prescribed pain killers which provided temporary relief. However, on further evaluation his condition was diagnosed as bilateral avascular necrosis. The doctor advised a non-cemented total hip replacement surgery for his right hip. Ashfaq was admitted to Akram Medical Complex and his surgery was performed by Dr. Zahid Siddiq on 14-07-2021. His hospital stay was four days and he was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Ashfaq’s hip joint has healed post-surgery. He can now move his leg without any discomfort.
