Hi!! Directly operation is not advisable.. According to her age also..operation has its own limitations and benefits..physiotherapy is required..it takes little time but gives good result..at least u can prolong time phase for operation satisfactorily..if the condition is that bad.

It's difficult to suggest with out clinical examination and investigations...Most probable cause at this age is osteoarthritis... It's a degenerative bone disease...There’s no cure for osteoarthritis as yet, but there are a number of treatments that can help ease symptoms and reduce the chances arthritis becoming worse...options are analgesics, NSAIDs,intraosseous steroid injection and hyaluronic acid injections,Physiotherapy like strengthening exercises etc ... Treatment depends upon the stage...I would suggest you to consult nearest orthopedic surgeon they will do the needful.
