Syed Ameer Shah's Story
Syed Ameer Shah, aged 78 years, suffered from intense pain and swelling in both of his knees for the last two years. The doctors that consulted him diagnosed him with osteoarthritis in both knees. He was given pain killers that provided temporary relief. However, as the situation got worse, he was advised to undergo surgical intervention for joint replacement. For this purpose, he was admitted to Northwest General Hospital. Upon re-evaluation and repeated x-rays, his left tibia was found to have an old non united fracture. Ameer’s surgical plan was changed and his open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of tibia was done with plate along with bone grafting (BG). His surgery was performed by Dr. Khushnood Ali on 30-04-2021. He stayed in the hospital for two days and was discharged in a stable condition. Ameer is taking bed rest as advised by his doctor so that he can take long walks once he recovers.
