A 17-year-old girl from Poland had developed a hump on the right side of her back which was diagnosed with scoliosis and was clearly told that surgery was the only solution. Since hospitals in her own country did not have spinal navigation technique, she and her parents researched and learnt about a Mumbai hospital and its expertise in treating scoliosis cases, and she admitted to the hospital. The doctors said that the right shoulder blade was more prominently protruding along with waist asymmetry and so the deformity correction and spinal fusion surgery was performed with the help of neuromonitoring and spinal navigation. This image-based technology utilises scans of the patient's anatomy and instruments that are tracked by the navigation system's camera. Navigation can help surgeons guide their instruments for more precise screw placement and assist in advanced procedures. The patient has now recovered well with her deformity treated and is ready to fly back to Poland...
