A life-changing treatment at CK Birla Hospital® has transformed the life of a 33-year-old Australian patient who had been living with cervical spinal stenosis for two years. The patient, who could not walk more than 50 steps without the support of two crutches due to severe pain in his right leg and numbness in both feet, was initially misdiagnosed in Australia and advised to undergo lumbar spine surgery. After seeking a second opinion at CK Birla Hospital®, Dr. Ashwani Maichand and his team provided an accurate diagnosis and an alternative treatment plan using advanced robotic technology and minimally invasive surgery (MIS).
The high-risk surgery, which involved potential complications like paralysis and loss of bowel and bladder control, was carried out with precision and accuracy using a diamond tip neurosurgical burr. The patient’s recovery was extraordinary, with no need for blood transfusions or an ICU stay. Just two days after the surgery, he was able to climb stairs without any neuro weakness and reported a 50% reduction in numbness in his feet. CK Birla Hospital® continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing patient-centric and clinically reliable care through the use of advanced medical treatments, consistently achieving outstanding patient outcomes.
