CK Birla Hospital® recently achieved a significant milestone in its commitment to global healthcare standards by successfully treating a 33-year-old Australian patient who had been suffering from cervical spinal stenosis for two years. The patient, who could not walk more than 50 steps without two crutches due to balance issues, reported severe pain in his right leg and numbness in both feet. Initially misdiagnosed in Australia and advised to undergo lower back surgery, the patient found hope and an accurate diagnosis at CK Birla Hospital®, thanks to the expert team led by Dr. Ashwani Maichand, Director of the Department of Orthopaedics.
The hospital recommended cervical spine surgery using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and advanced robotic technology, rather than the initially advised lumbar spine surgery. Despite the high-risk nature of the procedure, the surgery was a resounding success, with no need for blood transfusions or an ICU stay. Within two days, the patient was able to climb stairs without neuro weakness and reported a 50% reduction in foot numbness. CK Birla Hospital® continues to prioritize patient-centric and clinically reliable care, utilizing advanced medical treatments to achieve exceptional patient outcomes.
