No icon Good News

Health Desk: 07 February 2018: Recently, a patient named Nayan Mollah (26, M) was admitted to the Apollo Hospitals Dhaka with the complaints of seizure, dysphasia, and right hemiparesis. MRI scans of the brain revealed an enhancing tumor just in front of the left motor area of the brain along with some other parts.

After a rigorous consultation session with doctors and family, the patient opted for an awake craniotomy (an operation performed in the same manner as a conventional craniotomy but with the patient awake during the procedure).

The operation was headed by Dr. Md. Aliuzzaman Joarder, Neurosurgery Consultant and Neuroanaesthetist Dr. Zahid Hossain from Apollo Hospitals Dhaka. Now, Mr. Mollah lives his life without any neurological problem.
