Spine Deformity Correction


A Case Study by Dr. Naveen Tahasildar – Spine Surgeon in Bangalore

Ms. M 13 year old girl from Mauritius came to us with scoliosis (sideways bending of spine) which was noticed at the age of 12 years. The deformity kept progressing fast in 1 year. She was concerned about her body image and had a limited work/play capacity due to the deformity affecting her right lung. She underwent “Posterior Scoliosis Correction and Fusion” by Dr. Naveen Tahasildar – Spine Surgeon at Sparsh Hospitals, Bommasandra in December 2014. She underwent post-op rehabilitation and could walk comfortably on day 4 after surgery. The Xrays showed a satisfactory correction. She went back to Mauritius after 3 weeks of surgery and was under regular follow-up by teleconsultation. SACIM, a non-profit organisation of Mauritius, was instrumental in helping this child undergo surgery. Ms. M is a go getter and has been enjoying her life thoroughly. Special Thanks to Dr Rajkumar at SACIM and all staff at SACIM who supported her at every stage.


Dr Naveen Tahasildar has been treating the whole spectrum of spinal disorders from cervical spine to sacrum by non-operative and operative means using cutting edge technology. These patients include national as well as international from all parts of the world.
