Israel brain surgery

New Delhi: Doctors in Israel performed brain surgery on a 12-year-old boy after he was hit by a car while riding a bicycle. It was a miracle and a complicated surgery because they reattached his head to his neck.

The treatment was performed last month, but the results were not made public until July. Mr Hassan was just released from the hospital wearing a cervical splint, and the hospital claimed that they will continue to monitor his recovery.

According to the publication, Suleiman Hassan experienced an “internal decapitation” in which his skull severed from the top vertebrae of his spine during an automobile collision. A bilateral Atlanta occipital joint dislocation is the medical term for this problem.

The boy was immediately admitted to Hadassah Medical Center for emergency surgery. According to the doctors, his head was completely detached from the base of his neck. The surgeon believes that his recovery was nothing short of miraculous, given that the kid had just a 50% chance of survival.

While talking to the media, Dr Ohad Einav, the orthopaedic surgeon who oversaw the treatment said, “Our ability to save the child was thanks to our knowledge and the most innovative technology in the operating room,” he said, adding that the team “fought for the boy’s life.”

He added, “The fact that such a child has no neurological deficits or sensory or motor dysfunction and that he is functioning normally and walking without an aid after such a long process is no small thing.”

While explaining the surgery the doctors said, “large size of a child’s head relative to an adult means they are more susceptible.” “This is not a common surgery at all, and especially not on children and teens. A surgeon needs knowledge and experience to do this.”

The Boy’s father thanked the hospital staff for saving him. “Thanks to you he regained his life even when the odds were low and the danger was obvious. What saved him were professionalism, technology and quick decision-making by the trauma and orthopaedics team. All I can say is a big thank you” he said.
