A 65-year-old woman from Ghana, who in the last five years underwent six unsuccessful hip replacement surgeries, finally got relief after getting operated at Shalby hospital.

The patient, Nansata Salifu (65), from Bolgatanga town in Ghana, is a retired maternity nurse and mother of four. Back in 2016, she suffered a fracture in the hip resulting in severe pain. In 2017, she underwent the first surgery for hip replacement, but soon after the operation she developed an infection. Over the years, she underwent five operations but all proved unsuccessful. As per Salifu’s daughter, her mother was under intense pain. She was later referred to Shalby Hospital in Ahmedabad.

Director of Shalby hospital Dr Viren Shah, said, “Normally in such operations, bones are needed and at Shalby hospital we have a bone bank. Within six weeks of the operation, she will be able to walk properly. We do about 10,000 joint replacement surgeries yearly.”

Shalby Hospitals ( Shalby Limited), established by Dr. Vikram I. Shah in 1994 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, operates a chain of multispecialty hospitals across India, holding an aggregate bed capacity of over 2000 hospital beds. Shalby’s recognition as a multispecialty tertiary hospital chain in the Indian healthcare industry was envisioned by its founder Dr. Vikram Shah – CMD, who has been felicitated by Ethicon India for the development of the ‘OS Needle’.
