Technological advancements, desi implants make spine surgeries safe and cost-effective


1 Mar 2019
Until early February, Ajinath Khilari (27) from Shanisingnapur needed four pillows to sleep. When standing against a wall, his head would be 30cm ahead away because of the hunch on his back. Barely three feet tall then, his self-confidence was at the nadir.
After a detailed examination, special x-rays, MRI scans, Khilari went under the knife following an extensive planning. Kothari completed the complex deformity correction surgery well under three hours. “I am a relieved and happy man now,” Khilari told TOI two days after he underwent the surgery at Sancheti Hospital. Kothari finds it more challenging to clear misconceptions about spine problems than the complicated surgery he conducted on Khilari. He said, “There is a taboo about coming forward with scoliosis because the patient and their family members frequently face superstitious statements like it is a curse of god. Patients usually come to doctors at late stages because of stigma and lack of knowledge that scoliosis is completely curable.”
