Boy whose head hung at 180-degree angle has life-changing surgery

An Indian boy who suffered from congenital myopathy, which made his muscles in his neck so weak, his head would hang at a 180-degree angle has risked life changing surgery to straighten his neck.

The 13-year old Mahendra Ahirwar was treated as an outcast due to this rare health. However, the teenager has undergone life-changing surgery by a former NHS surgeon after a mother-of-two from Liverpool set up a crowd-funding page raising £12,000 for treatment.boy 2

Daily Mail reports that spinal surgeon, Dr Rajagopalan Krishnan, from Apollo Hospital, in Delhi, performed the operation after Julie Jones made it possible.

It was reported that in a first of its kind operation Dr Krishnan, who worked for the NHS for 15 years before returning to India to help extreme medical cases, operate on Mahendra’s spine.

The report says Dr Krishnan and his team open up the front part of his neck – leaving the front of his cervical spine completely exposed – because of his extraordinarily thin skin.

The incredible surgery follows a MailOnline story about the daily struggles of Mahendra, who comes from Madhya Pradesh in central India.
