Osteo arthritis camp

Event From August 10 to 12

The PNR Society of Bhavnagar, Gujarat, conducts its 18th Osteo Arthritis Camp in the city from August 10 to 12. Organised by L. Dharmichand Singhvi, the camp will be held at Mahaveer Bhavan, Pillaiyar Koil Street, Triplicane, Ph: 28552245.

The camp will be conducted by Dr. Vijay Naik, consulting prosthetist and orthotist, from the society. Dr. Naik has developed a polycentric knee brace, a substitute for total knee replacement for people suffering from acute knee pain. The brace is a simple weight bearing device, consisting of a mechanical joint attached to it. The principle is to transfer the body weight from the anatomical knee joint to the mechanical knee joint. This helps not only in checking further deterioration of the knee joint, arresting pain and supporting the unstable joint.

Pre-registration for new patients is a must and will be done on August 5 between 9 a.m. and 12 noon on a first-come-first-served basis at the same venue. Old patients can come for review on August 10. For details contact 28151947.
