Fortis Escorts Bone & Spine Institute Team enables Kashmiri citizen to recover from Degenerative Disk Disease

Date : January 13, 2016

Fortis Escorts Bone & Spine Institute conducted a Decompression & Fusion surgery of spine at the Safa Marwah Hospital, Srinagar on a patient from Srinagar to make her walk again. The surgical team was led by Dr Mandeep Singh, Senior Consultant, Orthopedics, Fortis Escorts Bone & Spine Institute (FEBSI), New Delhi.

48 year old Fameeda was barely able to walk, or even able to sit for long when she came to Dr Singh for treatment. It was challenging for Fameeda to do her regular Household chores. She was practically handicapped and was unable to walk more than 15 steps with a limp on her left side. Acute back pain forced her to sit and stand every few minutes, giving her virtually no rest.

Degenerative Disc Disease is also known as arthritis of the spine which leads to pressure on the nerve, leading to pain in the back travelling down the leg. Eventually due to prolonged pain and suffering this condition leads to a numbness of nerves and finally to a paralysis like condition. Cost-effective, weightless implants are used during the surgical treatment of this condition. These implants have a short life and need special skills to place it in the patients’ body.
