Over 100 orthopaedic surgeons from Bangalore and other cities gathered at Hosmat Hospital on Sunday to witness a complex knee–replacement surgery.

Conducted by Australian orthopaedic surgeon Ray Randle and Hosmat Hospital chairman and senior joint replacement surgeon Dr Thomas A Chandy, the surgery was telcast live with the patient’s consent. Visiting surgeons were given the chance to understand the intricacies of such a surgery.

Complex knee–replacement operations are rare in India; only 2% of primary knee–replacement patients need revision surgery. The need for such a surgery arises when too much of stress is put on the artificial joint, causing it to losen or break.
