To celebrate Holi, hundreds of former knee and hip replacement patients came together at Dr Shekhar Agarwal’s Holi Milan at Sant Parmanand Hospital, Delhi. Dr Agarwal, an executive director at the hospital, is a joint replacement surgeon who performs over 1,000 replacement surgeries every year. “People suffering from the last stage of arthritis including many who have lost all hope and the ability to walk, climb stairs or conduct day-to-day activities are able to resume normal life after undergoing the knee and hip surgery ,“ Dr Agarwal told us. Holi Milan offered them a chance to share their experiences and celebrate their recovery .
Every year, more than 400 patients attend the event along with their families, where they dance, play games and listen to poetry while enjoying street food and sweets.“Knee replacement surgery is one of the most successful operations in the medical field, and that’s exactly what is celebrated at the event,“ Dr Agarwal added.
