MGM Healthcare Saves Life of Day-Old Newborn with Complex Brain Surgery
MGM Healthcare in Chennai has once again proven their expertise and advanced medical infrastructure by successfully performing a complex brain surgery on a one-day-old newborn. The baby was brought to the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with symptoms of drowsiness and refusal to eat, leading to a diagnosis of a massive blood clot in the brain.
The medical team, led by Dr. L.S. Harishchandra, a specialist in pediatric, epilepsy, and movement disorder surgery, performed a timely and intricate two-step surgical procedure that lasted five hours. The surgery was challenging, given the delicate nature of operating on a newborn, but the team’s expertise and quick action saved the baby’s life.
Dr. Harishchandra acknowledged the Neonatal team’s excellent care of the baby during the post-operative period, which was vital to the baby’s recovery. This case is exceptionally rare, with only a few hundred such cases reported worldwide, but MGM Healthcare’s dedicated team of medical professionals rose to the challenge, delivering a miraculous outcome that will be remembered for years to come.
This triumphant tale is a testament to MGM Healthcare’s commitment to providing the best possible medical care to patients, regardless of the complexity of the case.
