Dear Sir (Dr. Prithvi Mohandas),
I feel immense pleasure to thank you and write about the experience of operating a case of DDH with shortening of limb around 4 inches at the age of 34 years. I did tissue release as you explained in the Bhopal meeting and I could implant the prosthesis ( S ROM ) and could correct the limb length and make the patient walk. The patient was walking with hand to knee gait preoperatively which was gone and patient was able to stand on his two feet and started walking for the first time in life, All credit goes to IGOF meetings which enlightens the upcoming surgeons.
I sincerely thank you for the invaluable guidance at Bhopal meeting due to which I could perform the surgery and help the patient to live his life confidently. Herewith, I have attached the clinical photographs and x-rays.
Thanks once again.
With warm regards,
Dr. Saranjeet Singh Jagdev
