Knee replacement surgeries are done in their tens of thousands every year in India over the last 10 to 15 years.Gradually some of these artificial knee joints are getting worn out and now require repeat surgery known in technical language as Revision Surgery. A revision knee surgery (Repeat Surgery) is at least 15 times more complex than primary knee surgery.

The delegates at the conference found Dr. Mody’s lecture very enlightening on this vitally important subject.
