India's tallest man, Dharmendra Pratap Singh had to undergo Hip replacement surgery as he was in a constant pain since last 6years. Singh is 8 feet and 1 inch tall and was in pain since the past six years following a road accident. His extra-ordinary height slowly became a reason for his physical ailments, so much that he needed to get to a hospital to stand on his own feet.
He underwent bilateral hip replacement surgery at KD Hospital in Ahmedabad. Nearly after a month of intensive physiotherapy, Singh is now able to walk with minimal support.
Hip replacement surgeries are a common phenomenon at hospitals. However, this case was one extra-ordinary as it involved a lot of complications due to Singh's height.
According to the doctors, making arrangements for the hip implants of the tallest man was a challenge for them. And it was all done free of cost.
“We had to perform the surgery in stages because Singh has osteoporosis, due to which his bones are extremely weak,” said Dr Ateet Sharma, among the four orthopaedic surgeons who operated on Singh. “As a result, we had to use a bone graft for the hip implants to completely merge with the bones,” Dr Sharma said. “Each of his surgeries lasted for about three hours. A bilateral surgery typically lasts for 40 minutes.”
After the surgery and rehabilitation, Singh said the pain in his hips is almost gone and he will focus on full recovery now.
