Making the announcement on his Facebook page, Kibwana noted the county government will stop at nothing to ensure its people receive the best healthcare.

“The operation entails removing the arthritic articulating surfaces of the Distal Femur and Proximal Tibia and replacing them with a knee prosthesis,” said the governor.

Those set to benefit from the knee replacement surgery are patients with severe knee joint arthritis who are not responding to medical treatment.

“Patients with severe knee joint arthritis unresponsive to medical treatment will immensely benefit from this surgical procedure by our able orthopaedic surgeon based at the New Makindu Hospial Trauma Centre,” he added

The good news came barely hours after the county bagged two awards in the first annual Quality Healthcare Kenyan Awards Gala after being voted as the best county in healthcare management.

A few days to the annual Awards Gala, the county government had moved a notch higher in provision of health services to its residents by introducing a telemedicine health programme.

The initiative will use telecommunication infrastructure to link patients from remote health centres with doctors based at the county referral hospital.

The governor who was named in the Auditor General’s report as one the best performing governors with a clean financial record, continues to set the bar higher for other counties.

The county boss has also often stood out as the most humble and hardworking governor, an attribute that has made him very admirable to the common mwananchi.
