Knee deformity, often known as knock knee, is a condition in which the knees bend inward and "knock" against one another, even when the ankles are apart. It applies too much force to the outside of the knee, causing pain and injury over time. Knock knee is usually bilateral, affecting both legs.
However, in certain situations, it just involves one knee. Knee deformity is a misalignment of the kneecap that affects individuals of all ages. It can lead to knee discomfort and joint deterioration if left untreated.
Correcting the deformity will restore knee mechanics and walking ability and lessen pain and slow the progression of a knee injury.
An Overview of the Case
A 60-year-old female patient, Suparna Ghosh, was brought to Care Hospital, one of the top orthopedic centre in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. The patient was having difficulty in walking and severe pain in both knees.
Dr. Sandeep Singh, one of the famous ortho doctor of Bhubaneswar, Odisha, attended the patient. Dr. Sandeep Singh examined the patient and suggested an X-ray, and diagnosed the condition as severe bilateral knee deformity.
Dr. Sandeep Singh informed the patient and her relative about the condition and the need for immediate surgical treatment. Then, immediately Dr. Singh operated on the patient and performed bilateral knee replacement.
After few hours of the surgery, the patient started walking and within several days got complete relief from pain and performed routine tasks efficiently.
