NEW DELHI : Aakash Healthcare Super Speciality Hospital, Dwarka, Delhi, has launched India’s first mobile knee clinic, called Knee Express, which provides doorstep service to patients suffering from severe knee problems.
The Knee Express offers free knee check-up and consultation to spread awareness. The large van is a well-equipped mobile clinic, which has fully automated digital X-ray facility, advanced POC machines for conducting various vital blood investigations, patient monitoring system, video conference facility, and an air-conditioned consultation room.
The hospital launched another initiative for those suffering from knee pain -- a next generation surgical excellence in knee replacement called S.P.E.E.D.
The SPEED Knee programme is designed for people in need of knee replacement surgery, providing them all-inclusive and personalised treatment.
Dr Aashish Chaudhry, Managing Director, Aakash Healthcare, said, “In the majority of cases, people try to live with their knee pain until they are completely immobile. With SPEED Knee programme in place, people will be able to avail an all inclusive and highly precise solution for knee replacement surgery.”
“The Knee Express program is a dream project for me. I have seen patients suffering from knee pain but they could not get the required treatment due to various reasons,” Dr. Aashish added.
He claimed, “The best part of this initiative is that the patient doesn’t need to go anywhere. We will go to their doorsteps to provide the state-of-the-art facilities that too without any cost. Anyone can book the Knee Express van for a knee camp at their society by just calling our helpline number 8800015950.”
Dr Kousar A Shah, COO, Aakash Healthcare Group, said, “Being India’s first "On the wheel knee treatment programme," it facilitates on-the-go consultations and diagnosis facilities as per the requirement of the patient. It is estimated that through this programme we would be able to reach out to the maximum population to generate awareness about knee care.”
