Suffering with cervical spinal stenosis, 175 kg patient from Australia undergoes advanced minimally invasive robotic surgery at the CK Birla Hospital®
CK Birla Hospital® recently made headlines with the successful treatment of a 33-year-old Australian patient suffering from cervical spinal stenosis. The patient, who had been struggling with the condition for two years, could not walk more than 50 steps without two crutches due to balance issues. After being misdiagnosed in Australia and advised to undergo lumbar spine surgery, he received an accurate diagnosis at CK Birla Hospital®, where Dr. Ashwani Maichand and his team provided a different treatment plan using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and advanced robotic technology.
The high-risk surgery, which carried potential complications such as paralysis and loss of bowel and bladder control, was executed with precision and accuracy, thanks to the use of a diamond tip neurosurgical burr. The patient experienced a remarkable recovery, 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 foot numbness. CK Birla Hospital® remains dedicated to providing patient-centric and clinically reliable care through advanced medical treatments, consistently achieving exceptional patient outcomes.
