"In replacement surgery, we mainly look after the stability of the hip joint and limb length discrepancy is unpredictable, stability takes precedence over limb length equality.
She complained that following the surgery, she felt she was limping due to a limb length discrepancy, around 2.5 cm more on the left end.
It added that the expert opinion sought from KEM Hospital also absolved the doctor of the negligence charge.
In its order, the SCDRC said that such complaints may discourage dutiful and honest doctors from serving patients in need.
Taking a tough stand against a wrongful medical negligence complaint, not only did the State Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission (SCDRC) dismissed the plea, it also directed the complainant to pay Rs 25,000 to the hospital and doctor.
