“I virtually do everything with ease now” – says Mohammad Mandurah, a recent patient of Dr. Subash Jhangid, at Fortis Memorial research institute, Gurgaon, India. India’s top-rated Orthopaedic surgeon with an experience of twenty plus years in Joint and Knee replacement surgeries. Part of recovery is the simple pleasure I get from just accomplishing a new milestone of being able to walk with ease.

I have not been able to walk upstairs/downstairs since past few years. I was extremely happy when my doctor told me I was recovering much better than the rest. I actually can walk ‘normally’ without pain! And I don’t even think about my knees.” Mohammad Mandurah never expected he would have the tests and surgery the same day and next day he would be walking on his implant knees with the aid of a walker.

Total Knee Replacement is one of the most successful medical procedures in India and over the last many years, advances in equipment and procedures have made joint replacement surgery much easier on the patient. Mohammad Mandurah shares his experience for his knee replacement surgery at Fortis Memorial Research Institute arranged by the Lyfboat Team.

When did you have your surgery?

I had surgery in April 2019

What were your knees like before surgery?

Every day for the last six years, I could sometimes not even drive let alone walking because just bending to accelerate would hurt and strain my knees. I came sitting on a wheelchair to the hospital, I had so much pain.

What was your specific requirement while choosing a facility for knee replacement?

Yes, I had inquired all over, Kuala Lumpur, Thailand, Dubai, and India. Lyfboat connected me to all the best orthopedic surgeons on their panel instantly. I was sure what I wanted. Same day surgery, shorter hospital stay, NAV Technology and next day walking. Doctors and case managers at Lyfboat understood my requirements, made a detailed comparison chart showing all doctors, hospitals, costs, etc. This was excellent because it made my job of deciding so easy. I got to know that not all the hospitals use NAV technology and Lyfboat was transparent enough to let me know about the same. My pick was even easier now.

What do you find most interesting about the NAV technology?

As I was doing my research, I found out that traditional knee replacement has certain fundamental limitations. One of the most critical factors determining the success of a knee replacement surgery is positioning of the implant which was best done using computer assistance. I wanted something as foolproof as this.

What can you do now that you’ve had your knee replacement?

My Osteoarthritis had changed my entire lifestyle. It caused pain, swelling, and reduced my overall motion. With a successful Total Knee Replacement surgery, Mohammad is thankful for being pain-free and being able to walk without assistance.

It sounds like you’re a well-acquainted healthcare consumer. What led you to Lyfboat?

The confusion of what would be the best for me. Contacting some international hospitals can be challenging due to time zone differences, language barriers, and cultural differences. Lyfboat Team made it a smooth journey for me, it was like getting treated was just a click away. I was provided with detailed information on doctor profiles, length of stay, cost estimates, pros and cons of knee implant material, implant brands like Stryker, Attune system, etc. from best orthopedic hospitals in India. Apart from this Lyfboat was personally involved in giving me suggestions as to what would be the best for me. I am going to refer Lyfboat to all the people when I go back to my country

What was recovery like?

I walked the very next day of my surgery! I felt like I could have walked home, but they wouldn’t have allowed that. Now my knee feels totally stable. I was amazed to know that after the Total Knee Replacement, patients can stand and start moving the joint the same day of surgery and are typically encouraged to move the joint. To get out of bed the next day and stand up on your toes was very motivating to me.

After the surgery, the FMRI staff encouraged me to go through physical therapy, an important part of the recovery process, to strengthen my muscles. Overall one of the best experiences for me, I will recommend Lyfboat and its services to everyone.
