Ending a Lady's suffering after switching her pelvis original joints with artificial ones at Royal Commission Hospital

The medical team at the Royal Commission Hospital in Jubail led by Dr. Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Tanani, consultant orthopedic surgery, performed two surgical  operations to switch the original pelvic joints for both sides  with artificial joints for a Saudi woman, aged 41 years.
 
Dr Al-Tanani, orthopedic consultant said  that lady came to the hospital complaining from congenital malformations  in the pelvis joints  from both sides since childhood accompanied by severe pain and difficulty with movement and since  approximately 40 years ago she  underwent a left pelvis  surgery in another hospital but without positive result. Her  condition is getting worse, she checked with  several domestic hospitals for treatment but she  did not find the right  solutions.
 
Immediately she was subjected to the necessary medical examinations such as CT scan  and medical examination  and based on the findings decided to perform the surgical operation  in two phases due to the difficult situation of being exposured to severe abnormities with no bony walls sufficient in the pelvic bone which are considered necessary  to fix  artificial  joints according to the normal method  .
 
The first operation was  to switch the left  pelvis joint and which was a success  and after eight months replaced  the right pelvis joint with success too. After that, the woman  underwent specialist rehabilitative treatment at the hospital and was able to walk naturally and without pain, and later she walks without a walking stick .
 
It is worth mentioning that this operation  is considered  one of the most complex and difficult operations due to the lack of sufficient and necessary bony walls to fix joints in the pelvis .
