Treating a patient suffering from weakness in the upper and lower extremities at the al-Kafeel Hospital.

A medical team at Al-Kafeel Super Speciality Hospital of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine announced that it had succeeded in implanting a valve in the spinal cord, ending the suffering of a patient suffering from impaired limb movement, while confirming that the hospital's capabilities contributed to the success of that operation.

The neurosurgeon, Dr. Khaled Al-Sarraj, said: “We received a patient suffering from weakness in the upper and lower extremities, his health condition is deteriorating, and the tests we conducted for him showed an expansion of the spinal canal in his cervical vertebrae,” noting that: “The decision concluded the necessity of a surgical intervention, for which we completed all the preparations by benefiting from the means of the Al-Kafeel Super Speciality Hospital, and the availability of medical equipment for this type of operation in it.”

Dr. Al-Sarraj added, "During the operation, we opened the cervical vertebrae and implanted a valve inside the spinal cord, to raise the pressure on it."

He explained, "The result of our work was very good, as the patient regained the movement of his limbs naturally after the operation, in which we recorded a tangible success."
