Additionally, the Mr. Ahmed also fractured both sides of the lower end of the femur, and avulsion of both collateral ligaments. This is considered a very serious injury that could have caused Mr. Ahmed bedridden without being able to move freely. However, the Orthopedic Consultant Doctors of Tree Top Hospital helped Mr. Ahmed.

Hence, the lower end of thigh bone causing pain was resected or cut out and ligaments and deficient bone were restructured with special limb saving mega prosthesis.
