Minimal Invasive spine surgery allows patient to walk pain free and regain confidence at Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai
MUMBAI, India, Dec. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- 44-year-old Mrs. Aisha Al Riyami from Muscat, Oman was suffering from severe low back pain since 2010. As time passed, she had to limit all her movements at home. Mrs. Aisha's predicament worsened as she restricted herself to the house and started deteriorating both mentally and physically.
She consulted many doctors in Oman, but there was no improvement. Her family tried connecting with hospitals at Thailand, but they were not able to answer all their queries and treatment was expensive.
A family friend suggested that they should seek medical advice from Wockhardt Hospitals, India. Dr. Mazda Turel, Neuro & Spine surgeon explained, "Mrs. Aisha had degenerative condition in the spine, which caused severe low back pain radiating to her legs as well. Along with this, patient was also suffering from rheumatoid arthritis since 10-15 years and Fibromyalgia-condition where patient experiences pain all over the body. After an MRI, I identified the location of the degeneration of vertebrae L2-L3 to L5-S1. The nerves were getting compressed due to stenosis, causing the pain. I decided to take the minimal invasive surgery route. With this novel technique, a small incision of 2 cms is created and by decompression, we could free the nerves, which were getting compressed. Patient would definitely be pain free and outcome of the surgery would bring optimal results."
Patient's son was very impressed with the overall treatment received at the hospital, and said, "My mother has started to walk again and is happy. We can see the improvement in her attitude. The admission processes in the hospital were efficient and hassle-free. We were allocated a very good room and provided with a translator."
He added, "Dr. Turel is an excellent and dedicated Neuro & Spine surgeon; he explained in great detail the options we had for mother."
