Here is the #Healthcaringstory of Ramamma a 66 years old woman from Chennai who came to MGM Healthcare with complaints of back pain and radiating leg pains. Due to her condition, she was unable to walk or stand for more than 10 minutes. She was developing a progressive spine deformity where the spine was tilting towards one side. She was depressed as she was becoming increasingly dependent on others for even the basic needs.
Dr. Vijayaraghavan G, Consultant, Institute of Neurosciences and Spinal Disorders, MGM Healthcare and his team examined her thoroughly and found out that her condition was due to lumbar canal stenosis and an untreated osteoporotic vertebral fracture caused due to a trivial fall.
To treat her, a complete decompression of her spinal nerves was done and it was instrumented to help regain the alignment of the spine. Today, she is completely relieved of her leg pain and back pain and can walk and successfully perform her daily chores.
Dr. Vijayaraghavan says that such complex procedures can be prevented in the elderly if the cases are brought to the doctor’s notice immediately. Even if such surgery is deemed necessary, the patients need not worry. MGM Healthcare is completely equipped with the expertise and technology to perform such surgeries safely and successfully.
