Nasya is a 10 years old girl from Indonesia. In 2008, she sustained spinal cord injury from extradural haematoma surgery. MRI of spine (2008-09-11) showed: large epidural spinal abscess was considered, with significant cord compression noted.
The parents didn’t find any effective treatment in local hospitals. They don’t want to give up, and tried very hard to find more options overseas. When they were searching online, they discovered that Puhua Hospital provides a new treatment options for spinal cord injury. They contacted with the hospital and completed the pre-admission evaluation. They received professional evaluation report from the hospital, which include the treatment plan, treatment period, cost and other details. Then they decided to bring Nasya to Puhua Hospital.
After admission, Nasya underwent thorough examinations for pre-treatment evaluation. The evaluation showed her condition is the same as what the hospital learned before admission. Therefore, the treatment was carried out according to the plan. The treatment include: Spinal cord reconstruction surgery, physical therapies, medication via IV dripping and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
After 3 weeks treatment, her sensation got significant improvement, and the patient was in very good mood. She was discharged according to the plan, and continue rehabilitation therapies at local clinics.
Recently, we received the letter and video from her family, her mother very happy to tell us that she can stand by herself for 2 minutes, and she can stand up and sit down without assistance.
Nasya will keep taking rehabilitation training and we look forward to hearing her further improvement.
