In this video, Dr. Rahul Gupta, Head of the Neurosurgery Department at Fortis Hospital, Noida, India, talks about revision Spine Surgery.
Patient Martin Yefouo from Cameroon came to India because he was suffering from severe backache and was facing difficulty performing routine tasks. He had a history of previous failed surgery six months back. Dr. Gupta did a thorough investigation and performed some diagnostic tests such as X-rays and MRIs to find the root cause.
Dr. Gupta concluded that the patient was having L4 and L5 Prolapsed Intervertebral Disc Disease (PIVD) and needed another surgery. Dr. Rahul Gupta and his team did a counseling session and discussed the whole situation with the patient and his wife.
The Surgery was successful and doctors were able to fix the spine without damaging any nerves. Now, after only 12 days the patient is showing remarkable recovery and is able to move pain-free.
