The medical team from Idlib Surgical Specialist Hospital, which is supported by SEMA, have successfully performed the first special operation of its kind in areas outside the regime control of Syria (spinal fixation and correction of kyphoscoliosis) for a 55 year old patient who has been suffering from chronic lumbar radiculopathy pain, for eighteen months.

The surgeons worked hard for 8 continuous hours to save the patient and thanks to God their efforts paid off and the patient made full recovery.
