Phanny underwent a joint stabilization surgery.

Phanny’s knee surgery was successful, and he is pleased that he will be able to walk soon. After his surgery, he started exercises with the physiotherapy team to increase his flexion and walk with a frame. After a few days of observation in the hospital, Phanny returned home to his province. He described his health as “good” after surgery, and looks forward to returning to work to support his family.

Phanny shared, “I’m so thankful to all the staff at CSC (Children’s Surgical Centre) for their help. I want to live an independent life again.”

Phanny is a 38-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He was married for 10 years, until his wife recently divorced him. Phanny is a father to two daughters. His children live with his ex-wife, and he lives with his mother. At home, Phanny listens to the radio, watches TV, and tries to help his mother around the house, although he is not able to do much in his current condition. He describes his health as poor and is hopeful to feel much better after surgery.

In January 2020, Phanny was in a motor vehicle crash and his femur was fractured. After the accident, his family took him to a government hospital for surgery, where a nail was applied to stabilize the fracture. Phanny was eventually discharged home because he had no money to pay the hospital. He still has difficulty walking, his knee is stiff, and he is unable to work.

When Phanny learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On February 4th, surgeons at CSC will perform a knee fusion procedure will help him to walk easily again without pain. Doctors will secure his left knee so that he can walk again. Now, Phanny needs help to fund this $518 procedure.

Phanny shared, “I hope that my leg will be better and I will walk again after my surgery.”
