    Hi Pooja,
    No, my mom hasn't yet gone for the surgery. She went for the other doc's opinion and he suggested her that you don't need to go for total knee replacement. However, he said that the osteotomy is the only solution right now. So, she is going to go for this surgery though. He said that it's a knocked out knee condition.
    I would suggest you to go for second opinion.
    Contact me if u have more questions.
    Best,
    Richa

    I had orthopedic surgery on my right ankle in Delhi, India three years ago. The treatment I got was first rate as was the hospital. My doctor had training in India, UK, Germany and Australia and was up on the newest techniques and doing joint replacements (I did not have joint replacement). If I need more surgery I will go there and not do here in USA. His physical therapy clinic was more helpful than the treatments I got in USA also.
