Taking Each Step with the Help of a Stick for the Past Two Years Ms Alemtsehay Aleye from Ethiopia can Now Walk Freely after a Knee Replacement Surgery in India

Ms Alemtsehay Aleye from Ethiopia could barely walk and required the help of a stick to take each step. Suffering from unbearable knee pain for about two years, she tried taking medications and painkillers but none seemed to have helped. To end the tedious sessions of excruciating agony, she decided to come to India for her treatment.



What hospital did your treatment take place in?

I had a knee replacement surgery at Indian Spinal Injuries Centre in New Delhi, India under Dr. Vivek Mahajan.


How did the knee pain affect your day-to-day life?

In 2015, I started having problems in moving properly. My knees would lock at times. Due to the intense pain, trying to walk a few steps seemed to be an onerous ordeal. I tried several medications and physiotherapy but nothing seemed to work.


What had caused so much pain in your knees?

The x-ray and MRI reports revealed that the cartilages of my knees had totally worn out and I required an immediate knee replacement surgery.  


Did the surgery go well?

It’s hard to believe how quickly I am back to being me again. I am able to enjoy walks and perform daily tasks without the pain and rigidity I faced before. Dr. Vivek Mahajan has performed the knee replacement surgery so deftly that within a day or two post surgery, I am able to walk seamlessly. The worn out knee cartilages are completely replaced. I was a bit skeptical about the knee implants but he assured me before the surgery that they have a life expectancy of two to three decades and that my knees will not be affected of any infection. I am grateful to Dr. Mahajan and his team of the best knee replacement surgeon in India for providing me with such a wonderful and to Vaidam Health without whom I would not found a trace of the right doctor and hospital.


How did Vaidam assist you?

The team of Vaidam has organized everything necessary for my medical trip. They provided me with information about the best hospitals for knee replacement surgery in India, notified me about the cost, duly arranged an appointment with the doctor before my arrival in India, and even a comfortable accommodation near the hospital so that I and my daughter do not face any trouble in commuting to the hospital. Our medical trip to India was made so easy by them and it is for them that I received the best treatment for my ailment. Thank you so much for all your assistance.
