A 12-year-old boy named Khusanbek Ozotilla from Uzbekistan regained his voice after undergoing surgery in Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, New Delhi. The boy lost his ability to speak after undergoing a tracheostomy at the age of two in his home country. 

The boy fell from the terrace of his house suffering head injuries for which he underwent lifesaving surgical procedure tracheostomy in his country. In this procedure, an opening is created in the neck to place a tube into the windpipe.

"The boy had to live with a hole in his neck due to which he lost his speaking ability," said Dr. Suresh Naruka, consultant in the ENT department at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals.

The child was admitted to the hospital and surgery was planned to be done in two stages.

"In the first stage, the boy underwent an endoscopic examination where it was found that he was suffering from subglottic stenosis. A T-tube was placed in his trachea," said Dr. Ameet Kishore, senior consultant at the Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals.

"After one week, the second stage of the surgery was performed. A reconstruction of his windpipe was conducted using a part of his rib as a graft. The stage closed the opening on the neck," added Dr. Kishore.

The child was kept in the pediatric ICU for a day and the next day he was taken off the ventilator. He has now returned to his home country and doing fine.
