Faridabad, Haryana: Park Hospital Faridabad is the fastest growing multi super speciality hospital from Park Group of Hospitals which has been known for its care and performance towards its patients.The hospital has announced a successful Brain Cancer Surgery performed by senior neurosurgeon Dr. Manish Kumar.

Patient was brought to the Faridabad Park Hospital on 2nd June 2017 in an unconscious condition where he was unable to talk and move his right side with severe pain. His problems started around 15 days ago when he faced difficulty in walking and gradually the sufferings increased with him becoming unresponsive around three days ago. MRI Scan of the brain showed tumour in the left side close to the area for speech and right-side limbs movement and in the fibres connecting the two sides of the Brain. Dr. Manish Kumar said that in such conditions, there is a high risk of permanent speech loss and weak limbs and there is risk to life also, if surgery is not done in time.

After investigation and complete examination, nature of the disease and the need for the surgical intervention, along with its limitations and possible complications were thoroughly explained to the patient’s relatives since patient was unconscious. Temporary medications had already been started by that time. After the consent of the relatives, left frontal craniotomy and safe excision of the tumour along with biopsy was carried out. Technologies available at the Park Hospital Faridabad were of great importance and helped during the surgery. Post operation patient improved slowly and became fully conscious and independent. Biopsy proved high grade malignancy of brain.

Dr. Manish said, he was in a critical situation when the patient had arrived. He was running the risk of life. He is back to normal life, after the successful surgery. But the tumour is among the worst type of cancer and requires immediate further treatment by radiation therapy and medicines. Despite of all the treatment, the life expectancy is limited in such cases. But after the present surgery, a good recovery has proved the feasibility of complicated high risk surgeries at the Park Hospital Faridabad.
