Suffering with cervical spinal stenosis, 175 kg patient from Australia undergoes advanced minimally invasive robotic surgery at the CK Birla Hospital®

CK Birla Hospital® has recently achieved another remarkable success in providing world-class healthcare by treating a 33-year-old Australian patient who had been suffering from cervical spinal stenosis for the past two years. The patient, who had been unable to walk more than 50 steps without two crutches for support due to severe pain in his right leg and numbness in both feet, was initially misdiagnosed in Australia and advised to undergo lumbar spine surgery. Fortunately, he found hope at CK Birla Hospital® with the help of Dr. Ashwani Maichand and his skilled team.

Under the guidance of Dr. Maichand, the Director of the Department of Orthopaedics at CK Birla Hospital®, the team accurately diagnosed the patient with cervical spinal stenosis, a condition that occurs when the space inside the backbone is too small. Instead of the previously recommended lumbar spine surgery, the team suggested a different approach: cervical spine surgery using advanced robotic technology and minimally invasive surgery (MIS).

The high-risk surgery carried potential complications, such as paralysis, loss of bowel and bladder control, and the inability to walk or stand. However, by using a diamond tip neurosurgical burr, the team at CK Birla Hospital® ensured precision and seamless accuracy during the procedure, leading to a successful outcome.

The patient’s recovery exceeded all expectations, with no need for blood transfusions or an ICU stay. Just two days after the surgery, he was able to climb stairs without any neuro weakness, and his foot numbness had decreased by 50%. He expressed his gratitude to Dr. Maichand and CK Birla Hospital® for their expertise and the use of advanced robotic technology, which allowed him to confidently undergo the minimally invasive surgery and ultimately led to his recovery.

CK Birla Hospital® remains committed to providing global healthcare standards through the use of cutting-edge medical innovations and techniques. Mr. Vipul Jain, Chief Business Officer, and Mr. Amit Sharma, Unit Head of CK Birla Hospital® Delhi, emphasized the hospital’s focus on providing patient-centric and clinically reliable care through the use of medically advanced treatments, ensuring the best possible outcomes for their patients.
