After some examinations and treatments, a successful hip replacement surgery was performed on him under the supervision of orthopaedic specialist Manmohan Baranwal, surgeon Shiv Shankar Shahi, and anaesthesiologist Bhupendra Pratap Singh.
The patient is now in good health and is recovering, said Baranwal.
Shiv Shankar Shahi said, “With the advancement of medical science, any surgery is no longer hindered by factors like weather or age.”
