Nellore: Doctors at Apollo Hospitals here on December 19 last year conducted a complex surgery on 103-year-old woman, who suffered a fracture on her pelvis bone. 

The family members took her to Chennai, Hyderabad and other important towns and cities to get her surgically treated, but of no avail. She needed surgical treatment to the trochanter bone on her pelvis. Many surgeons backed off fearing that the patient would not be able to cope up with anaesthesia and surgical risks.

But, the doctors at Apollo Hospitals took up the challenge, orthopedic surgeon Dr Vivekananda Reddy with the help of anaesthetist Dr MVS Chaitanya conducted the surgery successfully leading to the lady’s full recovery.

The patient is talking with all and able to walk freely. The Apollo Hospitals at Nellore is on a par with the corporate hospitals in major cities and the doctors can handle a wide variety of surgeries including the surgery to repair the rotator cuff tendon and other surgeries.
