Nail removed from the head of man at private hospital
July 15, 2023
Rela Hospital successfully performed a complex and life-saving neurosurgery on a 23-year-old daily wage worker named Mr. Bramha. He was admitted to the hospital after a 2-inch nail accidentally struck the back of his head while he was working. The nail was embedded in a dangerous position near the left vertebral artery, close to other vital structures. To ensure the patient’s safety, a meticulous plan was made to remove the nail without causing further damage. The surgery involved the patient lying face down under anesthesia while the nail was carefully extracted using a diamond burr. The procedure was completed successfully, with no complications or bleeding. Shortly after the surgery, the patient regained consciousness and was able to move his limbs without difficulty. He was discharged on the second day and has since made a full recovery.
“We are proud of our team of doctors at the Rela Hospital for performing this extremely complex, complicated, and life-saving surgery in record time ensuring that the patient was discharged on the 2nd day itself. Rela Hospital is known for its efficient and experienced doctors and world class infrastructure proving time and again that we are one of the best in the world,” quoted Dr Ilankumaran Kaliamoorthy, CEO, Rela Hospital.
