Patient Testimonial for Treatment for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Testimonial by Ms. Mwelwa Flavia

Treatment for: Treatment for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
Treated by: Dr. Vamsi Krishna Varma Penumatsa
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 be caused by age, genetic factors, trauma, or normal wear and tear, and it can result in severe pain, swelling, numbness, weakness, and loss of mobility.

The damaged disc is removed and replaced with an implant filled with bone graft during the procedure. The implant aids in the realignment of the vertebrae and the relief of pain and pressure caused by compressed nerves. It also helps to stabilise the spine and prevents movement between the vertebrae.

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

Ms. Mwelwa Flavia, from Zambia, successfully underwent TLIF for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. Vamsi Krishna Varma Penumatsa, Senior Consultant Spine Surgeon.
