Story of British patient Successful Knee replacement in India

A 64 year old Briton underwent a totally painless High flex total knee replacement while he was fully awake at a Chennai hospital. You can listen to his story of successful bilateral knee replacements in this video. The surgeon Dr.Venkatachalam performed this High flexion knee replacement after the anesthetist had administered a continuous Femoral block as seen in this picture. The patient was fully awake throughout the procedure and was able to do a straight leg raise and bend his knee fully after the procedure.
Innovations like these are welcome by patients as they suffer no side effects of anesthesia like nausea, vomitting, urinary retention, constipation.
You can listen to the patient's experience about his surgery in this audio testimonial
