Speaking to reporters  here, Dr Deepak Rai, Chief Orthopaedic Surgeon of the Hospital said the youth  Jayanth is now leading a normal life and is able to walk.

Giving information about the case history of Jayanth, Dr Deepak said  Ankylosing Spondylitis had affected his spine and joints  leaving doctors with no other option but a hip replacement  surgery. Doctors  implanted artificial hips through Dual mobility Hip System.  Both the hips were replaced in separate surgery and now post operation Deepak is able to stand and walk like normal human beings.

"Jayanth had developed pain  in his leg when he was in first PUC. The pain used to recur and Jayanth was unable to walk after his II PUC  exams and was completely dependent on his parents.  The family had contacted Dr Deepak after almost eight years of treatment  elsewhere which showed no  positive result. The family has spent nearly Rs 6 lakh on Jayanth’s treatment. As the area where he lives was affected by  Endosulfan menace, Jayanth has a   card given by government to Endosulfan victims. Though he is entitled for monthly pension, no funds were received for his surgery,"  informs his brother Gangadhar.

 Dr Mohammad Tahir, Medical Director of the Hospital, was also present.
