    Opinion regarding Bilateral Knee Replacement
    Deb09 posted:
    My mother is in her late 50s. We have consulted few doctors in Kolkata and I recently came to know about two distinct operation procedures. One in which both the knees are replaced at a gap of 5- 7 days and the patient remains hospitalised for 15 days. The other one, in which both the knees are replaced in just mere 2 hours gap and the patient has to be in the hospital for only 5 days. I would like to know which procedure is recommended or safer and why.
