John Tengbeh, a 51-year-old man from Sierra Leone, was advised to have Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion surgery because he was experiencing neck pain. This surgery can help relieve pain and bring back function to a severely injured neck.

Surgery to remove a herniated or degenerative disc from the neck is called an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). A cut is made near the throat to access and remove the disc. The bones above and below the disc are fused together with the use of a graft. If physical therapy and/or drugs are unable to ease your neck or arm pain caused by pinched nerves, ACDF surgery may be a possibility. It may be helpful for treating a herniated disc, cervical stenosis (myelopathy), or degenerative disc disease. He chose to be treated by Dr. Puneet Girdhar.

The renowned spine surgeon Dr. Puneet Girdhar has a proven track record. Dr. Girdhar has carried out more than 10,000 successful procedures throughout his career. He has had extensive training in both surgical and non-surgical spinal problem treatments. To treat spinal problems, Dr. Girdhar employs minimally invasive procedures.  With regard to performing minimally invasive surgery for disc herniation and spinal stenosis, Dr. Girdhar has more than 18 years of experience. Additionally, he offers multidisciplinary care for spinal tumors and infections. He is highly skilled at doing procedures to fix spinal deformities using multimodal neuromonitoring assistance.

After witnessing the enormous success of its early institutions in Lahore, Pakistan, during the years leading up to independence, and in Ludhiana during the subsequent period of freedom, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, then Prime Minister of India, officially opened the BL Kapoor Hospital in Delhi in the year 1959. The BL Kapoor Hospital was founded to provide specialized care in orthopedics, ophthalmology, general surgery, intensive care, dentistry, and ear, nose, and throat.

Pre-Treatment and Surgical Procedures

After the legal aspects of the investigation were concluded, he started his rehabilitation. Mr. John Tengbeh and his wife traveled from Sierra Leone to India on January 18 and 22, respectively.

An intervertebral disc is a cushion, located in between each spinal bone. These discs serve as shock absorbers during falls, exercise, and daily activities and stop the bones from grating against one another. An invertebral disc, a cushion, sits in between each spinal bone. These discs serve as shock absorbers during exercise, falls, and daily activities and stop the bones from grating against one another. Bone grafting, arthroplasty, and bone graft alternatives are disc replacement options.

A doctor will determine whether ACDF is likely to help with the pain when these treatments fail and a person’s discomfort is severe enough to interfere with everyday life. People are typically suitable surgical candidates if they:

  • have disc damage indications on an imaging scan
  • have neck discomfort brought on by pinched spinal nerves, have pain, weakness, or tingling in the hand or arm,
  • have tried different therapies but have not received relief

Post Treatment

After a successful anterior cervical discectomy and fusion surgery, Mr. John Tengbeh was urged to stay in the country for at least two weeks so that his recovery could be carefully monitored. Mr. Tengbeh expressed his appreciation for MediGence, the doctor, and the medical staff for making his treatment successful and painless. The MediGence staff actively managed his visa needs, airport pickup, hotel plans, hospital visits, and the admissions procedure in addition to helping him while he was in the hospital. Additionally, MediGence planned follow-up appointments to guarantee his rapid and safe recovery.
