JAMMU, Oct 15: Dr Ranjit Singh, who is an eminent name in the field of joint replacement, proved that increased age and overweight cannot be a hindrance to successful knee replacement surgery.
Elderly patients or patients who are severely over weight can also benefit almost equally as normal age and weight patients after knee surgery with Zero Error technique. To his credit, he has more than 16,000 successful knee surgeries. He was formerly working as senior consultant in Shalby hospital Ahmedabad and Fortis Escorts hospital Amritsar.
Dr Ranjit, senior consultant at Ivy hospital Amritsar and Prolife Hospital Ludhiana recently operated upon a patient Jaspreet Aulakh, weighing 110 kg and hailing from Amritsar. The patient was scared to go for surgery because of her weight. After getting to know about the miraculous Zero Error technique, she readily agreed for the same. She underwent both knee replacement simultaneously with ZERO ERROR technique.
Her surgery was done flawlessly and with minimal blood loss by Dr Ranjit Singh at Ivy Hospital Amritsar. The patient started walking mere 2 hours after surgery which was unbelievable for the entire family. The next day patient started walking comfortably without support with no visible pain. These miraculous results after knee replacement are possible only with Zero Error technique.
Dr Ranjit said people often get fancied by Robotic knee replacement which sounds futuristic and more technologically driven but the fact remains that manual knee replacement has a success rate of 98% in 10 years and 95% in 20 years. With such a high success rate and clubbing with “Zero Error technique” it enjoys the minimum recovery benefits with several cost benefits too, he added.
He alleged that the robotic knee surgery puts an extra cost to the patients and is more time consuming which is directly related to more complications whereas Zero Error technique has minimum surgical time of 20 minutes from start to finish.
