Former Uzbek Athlete Could Finally Walk After 2 Years Post His Successful Treatment at BLK Hospital

  • 35-year-old Uzbek athlete, Bekzod Abdulakhatov, had to lead his life in a wheel chair for two years.
  • He suffered from a common birth defect, spinal Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) that went unnoticed for 33 years.
  • Doctors at Tashkent mistakenly diagnosed it to be a spinal tumour and operated an open surgery resulting in Abdulakhatov's deteriorating health and an end to his career of an athlete.
  • But he finally can walk again after his recent treatment at BLK Super Specialty Hospital in New Delhi.
  • A team of neurosurgeons in the hospital headed by Dr.Vikas Gupta conducted a simple surgery named Digital Spine Analysis (DSA) followed by an 8 hour embolisation of venous malfunction to rectify the abnormal blood flow between his spinal artery and veins.
  • After two days of diability post surgery, Abdulakhatov could stand up and walk again.
