Pak youth can run again, courtesy city hospital

Yasin Anjum Rafi, a 22-year-old soccer enthusiast from Lahore in Pakistan, will now be able to run again, thanks to a Delhi hospital which performed a knee ligament surgery on the youth.
Rafi, who is the 22nd member of his family to undergo an orthopaedic surgery at an Indian hospital, was operated upon at Delhi’s Apollo Hospital on Tuesday. Twenty-one other members of his family have undergone either knee or hip replacement here earlier.

‘Rafi’s grandmother, brother, brother-in-law, aunt and several other members of his extended family have undergone hip or knee replacements at Apollo Hospital. So far, 22 members of his family have undergone surgeries,’ Rajeev K. Sharma, senior orthopaedic and joint replacement surgeon, Apollo Hospital, said. Most of Rafi’s family members are hockey and soccer enthusiasts.
