HYDERABAD:For the first time in Telangana government hospitals, the Osmania General Hospital (OGH)used a three-dimensional print of hip-bone mould in order to create the actual prosthetic which was used on 18-year-old Afghan youth undergoing treatment here.

The youngster Abdul Qahar’s hip had displaced after he was hit by bullet during clashes in his country.
“His hip joint was shattered and the joint moved upwards. We used 3-D reconstruction to design models and then prosthetic was prepared,” said Dr GVS Moorthy, superintendent of OGH and an orthopedician who headed the surgery.
Usually, prosthetic for hip replacement surgeries are designed using MRI Scan, X-Ray and other mechanisms. This is the first time that a 3-D model was used at a government hospital in the state.
