My mother in law had her second knee replacement surgery and she is walking fine now,and Dr. Raj Kanna sir is very good at explaining the do's and don't s to the patient.
I had meniscus tear on my right knee. Thanks to Dr. Rajkanna. He explained the exact details of the status of injury, procedure to be done and do's & don't s after surgery. He didn't demand much as fees. I am feeling good like before the occurrance of injury. I would recommend him for Ortho related problems.
