· Dr. Amitabha Chanda performed a groundbreaking spine surgery to give a normal and professionally active life to Dr Megha Kumari, a well-known Gynecologist from Jharkhand
Dr. Megha Kumari (40) (Name Changed), a distinguished gynecologist from Jamshedpur (Jharkhand) was under traumatic condition due to severe back pain that radiated down her legs for several years, impacting her ability to stand, walk, and perform surgeries. Her condition was diagnosed as spondylolisthesis in her lumbar spine, a condition where one segment of the spine slips over another, compressing the nerves supplying the leg muscles and skin. This ailment had severely hindered her professional practice, leading her to take leave and cease clinical work as a gynecologist.
Dr. Megha’s struggles escalated, with her ability to stand or walk without pain diminishing to a mere couple of minutes. Finally, she decided to undergo an advanced and pathbreaking surgery at Narayana Health (NH) RN Tagore Hospital here. Dr. Megha expressed sincere gratitude toward Dr. Amitabha Chanda, the Senior Consultant – Neurosurgery (Brain & Spine) at Narayana Health RN Tagore Hospital who performed a groundbreaking spine surgery to give her an active personal and professional life again. Recognizing the severity of Dr. Megha’s situation, Dr. Amitabha Chanda devised a surgical plan to alleviate the pressure on her nerves while stabilizing the unstable spine. The operation involved the use of titanium pedicle screws, rods, and a bone graft-filled cage, which not only restored the slipped segment of the spine but also ensured long-term stability. Dr. Megha After enduring two years of searching for a solution, she finally found relief under the expert care of Dr. Chanda.
Dr. Amitabha Chanda, the Senior Consultant – Neurosurgery (Brain & Spine) at Narayana Health RN Tagore Hospital, said, ” Dr. Megha’s case was a complex one, given her need for both nerve decompression and spinal stabilization. It’s a testament to her resilience and deep commitment to her profession that she actively pursued this solution.

It is more rewarding in the sense that she is a doctor and will now able to serve with the same vigour as earlier.”
