When India got freedom it was in Multifragment fractured bone.
An expert surgeon Sardaar Patel fixed all fragments very efficiently and they all united but a large fragment was unstable.
HOD Nehru said I will handle and operate.
He fixed it with costly implant (worth £370) but it got infected as appropriate sterilisation was not done.
It started discharging pus inspite of giving costly antibiotics.
Even seqestrectomy (Bangladesh) failed off
And on pus discharge redness fever kept recurring .
A Pathologist (Doval) identified a
super bug infection prevelent some parts of the world and resistant to all treatment.
A surgeon Modi even did Saucerisation of areas showing cavities (Surgical strike), but it did not work.
They suspected that If left as such malignant changes may occur.
Opportunistic infection ( Pak) was also a problem.
Some big medical shopkeepers did not favour radical cure as they were making money from costly medicine sales for treatment of this problem.
In 2019 Chief Surgeon Modi who has been treating it conservatively without results decided to go for some radical procedure,
not tried by previous surgeons as they lacked courage to handle such a difficult case and we’re happy taking commission from Pharma dealers(Vote bank).
He consulted a renowned anesthesiologist (Amit Shah) who had all the latest equipments to handle critical surgery.
That surgery has been done,
Dr Ravi Shankar Prashad assisted.
Affected bone split, healthy (Laddakh) isolated to one side,
Implant gentamicin beads(security forces) placed in infected part
With exicision of sinuses (Arrests of Mahbooba, Abdulla)
And covering the wound with vascularised (Union Territory) graft.
Patient is stable but those eying Chief surgeon’s post and perks associated with it are creating ruckus.
Shouting why case was not referred to overseas panel of doctors (UN) and why case was not discussed with other inhouse expert doctors ( Congress and other partys) teams and so on.
They don’t want a permanent cure .
