Patient Testimonial for Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion

Testimonial by Mr. Chansa Hanssein Simwamba

Treatment for: Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion
Treated by: Dr. Vamsi Krishna Varma Penumatsa
Speciality:
Patient location: Zambia

Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) is a minimally invasive spinal surgery used to treat damaged or degenerated spinal discs. Disc degeneration can occur as a result of age, genetic factors, trauma, or normal wear and tear, and it can cause severe pain, swelling, numbness, weakness, and loss of mobility.

The procedure involves removing the damaged disc and replacing it with an implant filled with bone graft. The implant helps to realign the vertebrae and relieve pain and pressure due to compressed nerves. It also stabilizes the spine and eliminates movement between the vertebrae.

TLIF has fewer complications, a lower risk of infection, and minimal scarring when compared to open surgery, and has a shorter recovery period. You may experience mild pain and weakness following the procedure, but you will be able to resume normal activities within a few weeks.

Mr. Chansa Hanssein Simwamba from Zambia successfully underwent TLIF for Degenerative Disc Disease at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. Vamsi Krishna Varma Penumatsa, Senior Consultant Spine Surgeon.
