Recurrent osteoid osteoma in young male

Mr SJ, 28, was operated a year ago for Osteoid Osteoma in RT 1 pedicle by minimally invasive spine surgery. Osteoid Osteoma is a benign bone tumour which causes severe pain at the site and increases by the night. When he visited Dr Tarak Patel, he suffered from severe back ache. He faced difficulty in carrying out his daily routine. His MRI reports and CT scan showed that the tumour (Nidus) wasn’t properly removed. He was advised by Dr Tarak to undergo open surgery to remove the tumour (Nidus). Dr Tarak stabilised the spine with pedicle screws and removed the tumour completely including nidus, which was then sent to the laboratory for examination and confirmation. Pathology reports confirmed that the tumour was completely removed. Post the surgery suggested by Dr Tarak Patel, the patient was relived from all pains. Today, he leads a normal and happy life with his loved ones.
