Medical Bulletin: Dalai Lama Recovering Well After Knee Replacement Surgery

Dharamsala, July 3, 2024

The latest health update from the office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, following his successful knee replacement surgery in the United States, was issued this morning in Dharamsala. The bulletin reports that His Holiness is mobile and walking.

The medical bulletin, issued by Dr. David J. Mayman, MD, Chief of the Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement Service at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, states: “During the first week after knee replacement, the primary objective is to minimize inflammation and swelling. His Holiness is mobile and walking with our physical therapy team. The second week involves progression of walking and physical therapy exercises.”

Dr. Mayman added, “I would expect His Holiness to continue to improve in terms of his knee and walking over this coming year.”

The Tibetan spiritual leader, who will turn 89 on July 6, has faced health challenges for years. His office previously informed that the Dalai Lama underwent successful knee replacement surgery on Friday, June 28, at the Hospital for Special Surgery and was discharged on the morning of Saturday, June 29.

After his discharge, the Dalai Lama has been staying at a hotel where he continues his recovery.
