We develop innovative programs to improve outcomes and provide a superior experience for individuals having hip or knee replacement surgery, Dr Wadhwa added.
“First and foremost, we do not see our patients as being sick,” Dr Wadhwa explained. “Instead, we see our patients as healthy individuals who are coming to the hospital because they have hip or knee pain, and want to live a better live by having joint replacement surgery.”
“This fundamental concept of wellness is executed throughout our entire program, which incorporates advanced, minimally invasive, analgesic, and rapid-recovery surgical techniques-with an environment that maximizes patient recovery through education, a culture of early mobility, family involvement, and group interaction”, added Sandeep Dogra, Vice President and Zonal Head Max Hospitals Punjab.
Kavinder Gupta while speaking said that the lifestyle is changing and people should be cautious about health hazard. “People having health issues should not get demoralized but should opt for treatment as medical field has advanced a lot and any disease can be cured easily through latest techniques.
