Puthichakriya is a 27-year-old man who first started experiencing pain in his hip five years ago. He says the pain is so bad that he cannot sleep through the night. Puthichakriya is a high school teacher in rural Cambodia. He likes playing volleyball and soccer in his spare time, but hasn’t been able to play because of his pain. Without treatment, Puthichakriya will have limited mobility and feel essentially like an old man for the rest of his life.
Luckily, doctors at Children’s Surgical Centre have identified Puthichakriya as a great candidate for a hip replacement. With a new hip, Puthichakriya will be able to go back to his normal, active life. Let’s help him get the treatment he needs to get healthy again!
