Faridabad. The doctor explains about the successful surgery of the patient.
- The inclination of the patient’s spinal cord was large and the patient was at risk of paralysis due to direct surgery. For this the patient was admitted and kept in spinal traction for 7 days. This helps in loosening the soft tissues around the spine and also reduces bending. Traction corrected its inclination to 80 degrees. After that surgery was done.
12-year-old Dipanshi, a resident of Mewat, had a rare and severe spinal deformity. Due to which his back was constantly bending against the normal spinal inclination from the age of 7. Dr. Ashish Tomar, Senior Consultant, Orthopedics and Spinal Surgery, Sarvodaya Hospital, Faridabad and his team successfully restored his spinal cord with the help of Advanced Spine Deformity Correction Surgery. Dipanshi’s parents first recognized this problem 5 years ago. That’s when he noticed that his back was getting bent and taking on an unusual bent shape. With age, the inclination of his spine increased and it increased rapidly in 2 years. Dr. Tomar told that the child was found to be suffering from juvenile idiopathic scoliosis disease. Which is rare, but could be life-threatening if left untreated. A normal spinal inclination is 0° but an inclination above 60° increases throughout life. Dipanshi had an inclination of 120 degrees in her spine. Bracing is an option for small inclinations, but for tilts of more than 60 degrees, surgery is required. In one year, the inclination of the patient’s waist increased by 40 degrees. She was already suffering from Restrictive Pulmonary Disease and any delay in treatment could put her life in danger. According to Dr. Tomar, the inclination of his spinal cord was large and due to direct surgery, the patient was at risk of paralysis. Therefore, the patient was admitted and kept in spinal traction for 7 days. Which helps in loosening the soft tissues surrounding the spinal cord and also reduces bending. Traction corrected its inclination to 80 degrees. After that surgery was done. The surgery resulted in a 75% improvement in deformity. Under this, the angle of the waist was increased from 120 degrees to 46 degrees and the patient was able to walk from the next day of surgery. The hospital’s chairman Dr. Rakesh Gupta has made this possible due to the best technology and technology of treatment.
