Publish Date: July 14, 2015

28 years female presented to us with pathological fracture of right hip. She had aggressive tumor ( Giant Cell tumor) of the proximal femur for which curettage was done 3 mths back. Now she was completely bed ridden because of the fracture and recurrence of tumor.. Previoulsly there was very limited options for treatement of such patients and most the patients remain bed ridden for rest of his life. With the evolution of modern orthopaedics and surgical expertise we were able to take out the tumor and replace the lost bone with the metallic part. Posopertavely patient is comfortable and out of her bed.
