  • Claimed to be the largest spinal tumor, it tilted Razzak's posture and intervened in his movement, rendering him disabled.
  • Due to the presence of complications, several hospitals in his home country refused to operate it.
  • Orthopedic and spine surgeon at Artemis Hospital, Dr. Hitesh Garg said that the surgerical procedure was strewn with complications due to the position and size of the tumor. 
  • The team of doctors also had to protect the several nerves, large blood vessels of the patient along with his lungs.
  • As said by Dr. Himanshu Tyagi, orthopedic and spine surgery consultant at the hospital, the sole purpose of the surgery was to remove the tumor without damaging the adjacent tissues.
  • The entire tumor was removed successfully.
