    A 40 year old Nigerian patient with crippling hip arthritis and foot drop underwent reconstructive surgery by Orthopedic surgeon Dr.A.K.Venkatachalam at a Chennai hospital. An uncemented total Hip replacement and ankle arthrodesis was performed under one anesthesia.

    In April 2007, she suffered multiple injuries to her hip and knee in a road accident in which several people including children lost their lives. She was treated in Illorin with fixation of the thigh bone but the hip bone injury deteriorated over time to develop poet traumatic arthritis.

    The primary surgery in Nigeria failed to address her hip arthritis. She was left with a totally destroyed hip, malunited knee fracture and a foot drop. She was forced to use crutches to move around.

He advised her to go in for surgery to replace the hip and fuse the ankle. She recently underwent a Hip replacement and ankle fusion to relieve pain and stabilize her foot drop.
