Dr Ravish Patwardhan Helps a Woman Become Pain Free and Walk Upright Again - TLIF http://drravishpatwardhantestimonials.com/patient-stories/back-pain-fusion/ Ms. Lois Baker, like many patients who suffer from back pain, had many possible causes that Dr. Ravish Patwardhan had to evaluate. She had had prior surgery for her back pain symptoms, done by another surgeon. She had had relief of some of her symptoms, but others remained, and quite importantly, she was not able to stand up completely straight and walk. Though some of the low back (lumbar) levels had been fused previously, another level had appeared to cause problems, and her nerve roots appeared likely compressed at this level. As such, Dr. Ravish Patwardhan discussed in detail with her the options of treatment, including conservative treatment. Generally, Dr. Patwardhan considers physical therapy, medications, and refers patients for injections, but not every option is good nor accepted in every patient. As such, in her case, the options of extending her fusion to incorporate other levels and decompress (or take the pressure off the nerve roots) was considered and discussed. Since she felt she had not had any improvement for months from more conservative measures, she wanted to proceed, realizing there was a chance that surgery may not help. The operation performed on her by Dr. Ravish Patwardhan was one which had been done by surgeons for about 20 years or more, but the manner in which he did it was less invasive. Using minimally invasive techniques, he was able to place screws using X-ray guidance rather than visualizing each bone. Dissecting muscles off bone can cause pain leading to a more prolonged recovery, according to Dr. Patwardhan. The recovery from fusions involved many days in the hospital previously, but techniques such as these have allowed patients to go home the next day in many cases. Dr. Ravish Patwardhan revised the previously placed hardware, and took pressure off the nerve roots, allowing her to stand straighter and walk better. While the realistic goal of back surgery is not to relieve all pain (though that would certainly be an ideal goal), the majority of patients may benefit by reduction of pain rather than a complete cure. Around one-third may experience no improvement. Hence, figuring out which techniques may result in improvement is important for the surgeon to decide. Despite all efforts, notes Dr. Ravish Patwardhan, the literature suggests that for some of these operations, the best success rates may be around 70%; thankfully, Ms. Baker was among these. About Dr Ravish Patwardhan: http://drravishpatwardhantestimonials.com/uncategorized/biography/ http://ravishpatwardhan.com/about Dr. Ravish Patwardhan has been a neurosurgeon since 2004, practicing in Shreveport, Louisiana. He has specialized in various procedures involving the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves. Dr. Ravish Patwardhan has performed both general and highly specialized procedures. Among the general neurosurgical procedures performed by Dr. Ravish Patwardhan, cervical diskectomy and fusion operations, lumar microdiskectomy, lumbar fusion, ventriculoperitoneal shunts, and craniotomy for tumors and intracranial bleeds are some examples. In addition, highly specialized brain operations such as epilepsy surgery, deep brain stimulation, kyphoplasty for the spine, artificial disks for the cervical spine, and brain laser surgery for tumors have been performed by Dr. Ravish Patwardhan. For many of these operations, Dr. Ravish Patwardhan has used a minimally invasive approach, which has resulted in a reduced length of stay in the hospital for patients, and subsequent quicker recovery allowing return to work and favorite activities. Dr. Ravish Patwardhan also founded Re-Vitalize, a 501-c-3 non-profit organization which helped bring inspirational speakers to the community. As part of the curriculum, Dr. Ravish Patwardhan brought in speakers such as Dr. Kellie Lim, a triple-amputee who went on to medical school to become a pediatrician. Dr. Ben Carson was received by Dr. Ravish Patwardhan, and commended his work in the community at the nightly dinner. Finally, Dr. Ravish Patwardhan and Ms. Darlene Hall worked with Rev. Mack McCarter, Shreveport-Bossier school superintendents Gerald Dawkins and Ken Kruithoff, and local oil and gas company Encana’s Ron Stark, to bring in Erik Weihenmayer, the only blind person to climb Mt. Everest. In a program of 2,400 ninth-graders, Dr. Ravish Patwardhan introduced Mr. Weihenmayer and his guide, after Encana had donated his book as part of the curriculum to these ninth graders. http://drravishpatwardhantestimonials.com

The year's highest science honor for high school students was awarded today to biochemistry research on cancer stem cells and an innovative use of gaming technology in the area of leg injuries and prosthetics in the 2011 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology, America's premier science research competition for high school students. Administered by the College Board, the Siemens Competition is a signature program of the Siemens Foundation, which supports science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. The thirteenth annual awards were presented this morning at The George Washington University, host of the 2011 Siemens Competition National Finals. Angela Zhang, a senior at Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, California, won the $100,000 Grand Prize in the Individual category for using nanotechnology to eradicate cancer stem cells. Ziyuan Liu and Cassee Cain, seniors at Oak Ridge High School in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, will share the $100,000 Grand Prize in the Team category for using new gaming technology to analyze human walking patterns, work that could ultimately be used in prosthesis design for amputees.

ATLANTA, Dec. 2, 2013 /3BL Media/ – Home is a special part of the holiday season, but for the more than 3 million veterans living with a service-connected disability and the nearly 60,000 veterans who are homeless, home can be a challenge during the holidays and throughout the year. To help ensure our nation’s veterans have a safe place to call home, The Home Depot® Foundation will donate up to $100,000 to Operation Homefront this holiday season. Between #GivingTuesday (December 3) and New Year’s Eve (December 31), The Home Depot Foundation is inviting people to share their support for veterans by tweeting using #TeamDepot. During that time period, The Home Depot Foundation will donate $1 to Operation Homefront for each #TeamDepot tweet, up to $100,000. “Veterans have given so much of themselves to ensure our freedom, yet so many face housing challenges – from accessibility to homelessness to maintenance,” said Kelly Caffarelli, president of The Home Depot Foundation. “We’ve committed $80 million over five years to ensure every veteran has a safe place to call home and partnerships with nonprofits like Operation Homefront are vital to achieving our mission.” Operation Homefront is a national partner of The Home Depot Foundation and together the organizations have repaired, rehabilitated and retrofitted the homes of wounded warriors including: John Eichenberger, Army veteran and single amputee who served in Afghanistan – Kansas City, MO Jack Hill, post-9/11 Navy veteran who is 100 percent disabled – Albuquerque, NM Loyd Sawyer, Army Sgt. who suffered significant injuries including traumatic brain injury during his service in Iraq – Colonia Heights, VA The Home Depot Foundation also supports Operation Homefront Villages where the families of wounded warriors live free of charge while their loved ones receive extended medical care and rehabilitation – often for six months to two years – near major military and VA hospitals in Washington, D.C., San Antonio, Texas, and San Diego, Calif.

This is absolutely best amputee pretending video ever made. Cute woman looks like a real DAK amputee after recent amputation, lying on her bed with bandaged tights stumps. Her sweetheart is trying to support and to encourage her, caressing stumps. Then she's helping her to change clothes, to get into the very first wheelchair and make a little outdoor walk (or roll, if you like). Never saw such beautiful amputee pretender woman and better pretending video!
