Compromised nerve roots can have varying degrees of severity; some people experience mild discomfort, and others seek medical attention. If the narrowing of the spinal canal compresses the nerve root, you might experience pain or weakness in your leg.

This medical condition most commonly occurs in older adults, making it a case for Mr. David, a 60-year-old from the UK. Being in that age range, he was also suffering from the symptoms of nerve canal stenosis, such as pain in the lower back, numbness, sharp shooting pain, and pinching in his legs.

Looking for a medical recommendation and treatment plan, he also researched online and came across us. After learning about us, he dropped a query on our website, which we promptly responded to.

After discussing his previous medical reports with our case manager, he decided to get treated in Thailand because the country has some of the best Orthopedic Surgeons. As he reached Thailand with his wife, one of our coordinators picked him up at the airport.

Mr. David’s appointment with the doctor had already been arranged. He consulted Dr. Pitbull Ltriravivong, an Orthopedician and Joint Replacement Surgeon with over 35 years of experience.

After having his consultation with the doctor, he was suggested to undergo a Laminectomy (L4-5/ L5-S1 + L3-4) with screw root fixation, which aims to alleviate pressure from the spine and stabilize it with screw.

The complex yet successful procedure was carried out at Bangpakok 9 International Hospital, Bangkok. The patient was advised to stay for 5 days in the hospital and around 10 days in the country.

Mr. David and her wife were delighted with our exceptional services, such as airport pick-up and drop-off, hospital and doctor appointments, and accommodation arrangements.

We hope he gets back to enjoying his life and participates pain-free in any activity!
