World renowned neurosurgeon - Dr (Prof) VS Mehta, Padmashree, Chairman Neurosciences Paras Healthcare - conducted the rare and complex brain tumor surgery.
Anil a 20-year-old son of a daily wage laborer was suffering from severe headache for the past two to three months, following which he suffered an epileptic attack. Upon visiting Paras Hospitals in Gurgaon, the patient was diagnosed with a rare case of brain tumor.
The news of the son suffering from brain tumor in such a young age had shocked the parents and family members. With chances of survival really low, the parents had nearly lost all hope of his recovery.
"Anil was timely brought in for diagnosis because he was in a critical stage and could have lost his life at any moment. It was important for the patient to quickly undergo operation. He had a cystic lesion which is a tumor/cyst in the brain. A biopsy was also conducted. Luckily, the tumor was non-cancerous, as we had consulted medical oncologists and radiation oncologists on this case. The risks were high because of the advance stage of the tumor and its placement in the brain. The neurology team swung in to action and conducted all necessary tests for a complete diagnosis and to evaluate all important parameters before conducting the surgery. The surgical team performed craniotomy which went on for 15 hours. We were finally able to remove the tumor completely which was damaging other brain tissues," Dr (Prof) VS Mehta, EX HOD Neurosurgery, AIIMS New Delhi - Chairman Neurosciences, Paras Healthcare shared.
