Mrs. EM 37 yrs old IT professional from USA presented to my private KL Health Centre Clinic with Chronic axial neck pain and severe right upper limb radiculopathy. She was on Methylprednisolone, Pregabalin and opioid Hydromorphine to control her pain. She also underwent a cervical epidural pain procedure in the US recently prior to her travel to India.
Clinically she had unrelenting right upper limb pain, weakness and was unable to move her right arm due to severe pain. She underwent relevant investigations and was diagnosed to have a significantly large right sided disc prolapse at C5/6. She and her family were counselled about her condition and was offered Cervical Disc Replacement Surgery to relieve her agony.
Orthopaedic Spine Surgery was performed @ Yashoda Hospital, Somajiguda, Hyderabad .
