Congenital Spine Defect Cured After Surgery

Hope comes when you least expect it. Miracles do happen and we are given a second chance once again. This is the story of a little boy from Malaysia who was born with birth defects in his spine. His father narrates his tale of hope lost and regained once again thanks to the doctors of Kauvery Hospital.

Little Jayaraja

Mr. Thiyagaraj along with his wife and son arrived in India from Malaysia cherishing the hopes of finding a cure for their son, Jayaraja, who was born with congenital spine defects. The doctors in Malaysia had told them that their son’s spinal discs, L4 and L5, were missing. The little boy did not have any movement below the hip. They looked around for treatment in Malaysia but in vain. All the doctors there told him that no treatment would be of use as there was no cure for it and the boy would have to spend the rest of his life confined to a wheelchair. However, Mr. Thiyagaraj refused to accept this and continued to scour Malaysia hoping for some kind of treatment. But here he was disappointed once again as all the other doctors too told him to wait till the baby was 3 or 4 years old before attempting surgery to rectify the defect. The parents were dejected.

Hope Arrives

Luckily, a friend informed them about Kauvery Hospital and encouraged them to consult there. A phone consultation with Dr Balamurali from Kauvery Hospital brought the family some hope. The doctor told them that this defect could have been cured during the pregnancy itself or failing that immediately after the baby was born. Even now it wasn’t too late the doctor assured the family as he had performed this kind of surgery many times before. Optimism returned to the family on hearing the doctor’s words and they decided to come down for treatment.

On examination, the doctor informed the parents that the spinal discs were very much present but they were bent. A surgery could be done to rectify this. With the parents’ consent the surgery was performed. The surgical procedure involved removing a bone from his leg and placing it in the spine. After surgery, the little boy was able to sit up as his spine was now straightened. The father explains that before the surgery, his son would always have his legs crossed as he was unable to straighten them. This too was cured after surgery.

The Road Ahead

The team of doctors along with the little boy’s family continue with their efforts to make him walk. This would involve treatment for his legs as well as operating to join the hip bone with the legs. The doctors assure Mr. Thiyagaraj that no efforts will be spared while trying to make his son walk again. The family too trusts them and looks ahead to the future with hope.

The father requests parents to not delay treatment for small children – early treatment is best for cure and delaying it will benefit no one.
