Revised Diagnosis Prevented Unnecessary Surgery

While an orthopedist advised I to consider undergoing knee replacement surgery. Medix recommended a conservative treatment only

I., a generally fit and healthy gentleman used to play a lot of rugby, which left him with a number of degenerative changes in both his knees. He has undergone arthroscopies on both his knees however despite the treatments, he still had trouble walking long distances.


On August 2012, while riding his bicycle, I. was involved in a traffic accident during which he fell off the bicycle. It resulted in a fractured hip that was fixed with 3 pins. His right leg was shortening and he went through a lot of pain that led him to limping.

 

Six months later, a local orthopedic surgeon saw I. and advised that based on his recent CT, his hip had healed nicely and as such he should consider undergoing knee replacement surgery.

 

I. turned then to Medix for advice. After reviewing the x-ray, Medix orthopedic consultant disagreed with the local orthopedic assessment: He observed that the fracture in the hip had not united properly and suspected that it might
not unite at all based on the CT which showed a complete non-union. Following this realization, the orthopedic consultant was reluctant to recommend knee replacement surgery prior to satisfactory resolution of the hip condition.

 

Upon our request I. was referred to an orthopedic surgeon in London who agreed that the hip fracture has not united. He too did not think that I. was at a stage where knee replacement was indicated. Given his young age and activity profile, he stated that he ought to carry on with his hip and knee as they were at the time and be treated with conservative treatment only. Currently, I. is feeling better.
