In India, pelvis fracture is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality of older people.
In a study by the National Institute of Health, over 70 per cent of all patients had fractures that were considered severe enough to require amputation.
The severity of these fractures was determined by using a standard bone-sparing technique that was approved by the Ministry of Health.
The technique is described as a bone-spanning technique, and can be used to repair the fracture.
A bone-stripping tool is used to insert a flexible plastic device called a scalpel into the bone to make a hole.
The device is then used to remove the tissue that was damaged by the fracture, leaving a hole that can then be filled with cement.
The hole can then heal, allowing the pelvis to return to its original shape.
However, the technique requires a skilled and experienced surgeon, who needs to be able to see through the skin of the affected limb to see what is wrong.
The procedure is performed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where a team of surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and physical therapists helped to build a prototype that has been in use for the last three years.
The team has since scaled up to build prototypes in a number of hospitals across the country.
One such hospital is the Mayo Hospital in Rochester that uses a prototype of the device that was used for the first time at the clinic in September 2016.
This year, the team has also used the device to repair fractured pelvis, and it is now being used to treat osteoarthritis in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
The Mayo Clinic has also been using the device in the clinic for over three years and has successfully treated over 2,500 patients.
It has been a significant advance in terms of patient outcomes, the research team said in a statement.
The researchers also used bone-straining techniques that were used by other researchers to improve the bone-stretching and bone-strengthening of the prototype.
The results of the study were published in the journal Bone.
In its first year, a total of 2,723 patients were treated for fractured pelve injuries, including over 4,000 fractures that required amputation and more than 700 patients that required bone-skeletal therapy.
The patients were in their 70s, 80s, and 90s.
They included patients with various fractures ranging from normal to severely impacted.
In addition, some patients had hip and knee injuries.
Researchers said that the use of the scalpel device was a significant advancement for the device, and that it was an improvement over previous models that had to be replaced often.
This device can be modified to increase the rate of healing and reduce the cost of surgery, the researchers said.
The devices were also able to reduce the time needed for treatment, as the patient can be removed from the hospital and treated at home before returning to the operating room.
They added that this new device was “extremely efficient” and that the team would continue to develop more advanced versions of the technology to improve patient outcomes.
