In a remarkable tale of resilience and expertise, a 49-year-old patient arrived at Alchemist Hospital in Sector 21, Panchkula, on an emergency wheelchair, gripped by writhing pain and unable to move his legs.

Under the adept care of the medical team at Alchemist Hospital, led by Dr. Rajan Mehra, Head of the Department of Cardiac Surgery, alongside Dr. Manish Budhiraja, Sr. Consultant Neurosurgery, and Dr. Sumit Bhandari Associate Consultant Neurosurgery Alchemist Hospital, a bold decision was made.

Prior consultations at other medical facilities had offered little promise, advocating for multi-stage interventions with uncertain outcomes.
