Hip replacement techniques from TUM, Germany

Visit my official site.

The Technische Universität München (TUM; Technical University of Munich) is a research university with campuses in Munich, Garching. It is a member of TU9, an incorporated society of the largest and most notable German institutes of technology. TUM is ranked 1st in Germany and top 50 in the world. In the technical disciplines, engineering at the TUM attained 21st position which is the highest ranking among the German universities.

I got the opportunity to work with doctors at TUM, Germany for hip, shoulder, knee surgeries. This also included work on replacement surgeries. In particular anterior hip approach, Minimal invasive surgery techniques were discussed. This surgery technique is very new to India and very successful abroad as it leads to minimal pain and blood loss. This leads to faster and better recovery.
Devi talab hospital is running a camp for 2 months starting 8th July, where knee and hip replacement surgeries will be done. The knee replacement surgeries will be done at a subsidized rate of around 80 thousand.
