One person in every 100,000 develops a spine tumor each year, which is relatively low if compared to a brain tumor. Ms. Amira, a 27-year-old from Algeria, has been suffering from this disease since she was a child. She underwent spine tumor surgery in her childhood. But there was no improvement, so her family started looking for treatment outside their home country.
While searching for treatment online, they came across us and dropped a query. We responded quickly and assigned a case manager. The patient was advised to fly to India and consult the best Spine Surgeon.
Ms. Amira came to India with her brother and consulted Dr. S K Rajan, a Neurosurgeon with 20+ years of surgical experience.
Upon evaluation, it was found that the L4-L5 intervertebral disc is compressing the L5 nerve root due to degenerative disc disease. It led to symptoms such as lower back pain, radiating leg pain (sciatica), numbness, tingling, and weakness.
The surgeon suggested that she undergo spine tumor surgery, which was successfully carried out at Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon. Dr. Rajan was able to remove 90% of the tumor. She is told to come back after 3 months for a follow up MRI, after which her further course of treatment will be decided.
The patient and her brother stayed in India for 30 days and were very satisfied with our services.
We know she's a fighter, and we hope she recovers soon and can move pain-free!
