A remarkable surgical procedure was performed in Tel Aviv, Israel, where surgeons successfully reattached the head of a boy who had been struck by a car while riding his bicycle. The announcement was made by a Jerusalem hospital this week. The patient, Suleiman Hassan, a 12-year-old Palestinian from the West Bank, suffered from an internal decapitation, a condition in which his skull was detached from the top vertebrae of his spine, known as a bilateral atlanto occipital joint dislocation, as reported by The Times of Israel.
Hassan was riding his bicycle when he was hit by a car, resulting in severe injury. He was immediately transported to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, where he underwent emergency surgery in the trauma unit. The medical team described his head as being “almost completely separated from the base of his neck.”
Dr. Ohad Einav, the leading orthopedic specialist in charge of the operation, explained that the procedure lasted several hours and involved the use of innovative techniques, such as new plates and fixations, in the affected area.
Einav expressed gratitude for their knowledge and the advanced technology available in the operating room, which enabled them to save the child’s life. The medical team fought relentlessly for the boy’s survival.
According to i24 News, Einav and his team stated that Hassan had initially only had a 50% chance of survival, making his recovery truly miraculous.
Although the surgery took place in June, the hospital waited a month before announcing the successful outcome. Hassan has recently been discharged from the hospital, wearing a cervical splint, and his recovery will be closely monitored.
