JALANDHAR, India, September 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Life-saving operation

- successful Hip Replacement Surgery - performed by renowned Dr. Harprit Singh, an Orthopaedic surgeon who hasáconducted 40,000 operations over a period of 20 years

Mr. Amar Singh

from Jalandhar, a 92-year-oldáindividual, sustained a hip fracture. Having a history of heart problem with only 30 % of heart functional (lvef), Mr. Singh consulted several surgeons and hospitals for relief as this type of surgery normally takes 45ámin to 1hr 30 minutes. Mr. Amar Singh had already been operated on pts with even less than 18 pc ht functions. Mr. Amar Singh was then referred to Dr. Harprit Singh, a renowned Orthopaedic surgeon at Orthonova Hospital , who handles such complex cases with precision and finesse.

Mr. Amar Singh was taken up for surgery by Dr. Harprit for partial Hip Replacement (Hemi Replacement) and the surgery was carried out in less than 5 minutes. Mr. Amar Singh was able to stand the next day and started walking in justátwo days time. Mr. Amar Singh is enjoying a fit life now and is grateful to Dr. Harprit in this regard.

A precise and fast surgery has its own advantages as Dr. Harpritásaid later. In a quick surgery, the heart doesn't get the load of a prolonged operation and heavy dose of drugs and therefore the recovery is faster.á

Further, Dr. Harprit shared some insights post the miraculous surgery: "A precise albeit quick surgery has its own benefits. There is almost no blood lossáin such a short duration. Tissue desiccation is minimal therefore recovery is faster and as fibrosis is less, pain is minimal. Overall, the recovery of the patient is much faster than usual and chances of infection are marginally less as air contact is for a very short time as compared to a longer surgery of over 1.5 hours."á
