She was adamant not to undergo surgery. She wasn’t pleased with neither hospital facilities nor doctors whom she consulted.
Priscilla is a sixteen-year-old girl who suffered from scoliosis. Scoliosis is a condition in which a person’s spine is curved from side to side. It is a complex three-dimensional deformity on an x-ray. However, when viewed from rear, it resembles ‘S’ or ‘C’, rather a straight line. She had it congenitally.
She consulted many doctors in India and wasn’t convinced with the procedures. Her father lost no hope in getting her to as many doctors as possible for her to do surgery. It was then she visited the Vellore Hospital, where she liked the Hospital services but wasn’t fond of doctor. She related him as harsh person who didn’t care for her condition. She was stubborn and discontinued her treatment in there.
Somewhere midst of her holidays, she dropped in for consultation in Apollo Hospital. She liked the premises, staffs and even the facilities. Above all, the generous nature of doctor! She did her surgery and on the fourth day, SHE STARTED WALKING.
When inquired previous hospital, she heard the patients who ever undergone surgery, had infection in the rod that placed in the spine. Moreover, these patients had to stay in HDU (High Dependency Unit) for three HUGE months.
Priscilla walks with a smile on her face and she exclaims by raising her arms upwards, “He is great. Hallelujah”!
