40 patients to benefit from knee - shoulder orthopedic project

31 July 2014, 13:43 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Orthopedic surgeons from Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) and their colleagues from the United States have operated on 25 patients with knee-shoulder related problems.

The corrective surgeries were carried out on the patients during a week-long knee-shoulder project that kicked off on 28 July, 2014.

A statement from KNH said a total of 40 patients will ultimately benefit from the project which has been greatly subsidized by the Hospital.

“The project targets to undertake shoulder replacement, shoulder arthroplasty and Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction among others,” KNH said it the statement.

The project offers a welcome opportunity for skills transfer, exchange of knowledge, training and research that will make it possible for patients to undergo corrective surgeries and also improve orthopaedic care in the country.

“The demand for orthopaedic treatment has grown steadily over the years and treatments have become more complex. Many patients waiting for orthopaedic care have waited too long in the past and this project will help to address this by contributing to improvements in access for patients,” the statement read in part.
