Last week a 38 year old resident of Mulund met with a bike accident while he was returning home. Due to the accident he sustained severe injuries. He dislocated and fractured his right hip joint. He was rushed to a local government hospital where he was given primary care. However, due to the COVID-19 lockdown measures in place, he could not be treated there. Hence, was referred to Aditi Hospital late in the night, at 10 pm.
Within 1 hr of his arrival at Aditi Hospital, Dr. Shailendra Patil and his team performed an emergency procedure to relocate his hip joint to normal position. Special Thanks to Dr. Mrs. Shetty for administering excellent anaesthesia at night time. After making sure the patient did not have COVID. A CT scan was also performed to check the degree of damage caused to him. Following which a fracture fixation treatment was performed to save his natural hip. Had we not performed the care that we did he would have need a total hp replacement. We would like to thank Aditi hospital’s team for making such a great effort to give yet another person a chance for survival in the current health pandemic. They not only delivered excellent care but also risked their lives in a way.
We are also glad to report the patient was discharged 2 days ago and is recovering well at home.
