Nadeem Akhtar's Story
Nadeem Akhtar, aged 34 years, suffered from a terrible roadside accident around nine months ago. The accident was so severe that he became unconscious and was taken to a local hospital. Upon medical evaluation, it was revealed that the accident had resulted in a fractured tibia bone in his left leg. The doctors treated his fracture and other wounds. However, with time, his leg’s condition worsened instead of improving. The swelling in his left leg began to increase as well. When he consulted the doctor again, the doctor diagnosed non-union of his fracture and advised removal of implant (ROI) after which he was advised to undergo Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF) and bone grafting. ORIF is a surgery used to fix and stabilize severely broken bones. Whereas, bone grafting utilizes a transplanted bone for rapid repair of damaged bones.
Nadeem is a daily wager and earns only PKR 12,000 per month. Therefore, he got very worried when he was told that he needed surgery for his fracture. His pay is already not sufficient to support five members of his family. Even if he spent his entire savings, affording a major orthopedic surgery was not possible for him. He expressed his sadness and helplessness to one of his friends who immediately told him to visit our office. Nadeem visited us and we registered his case. He narrated his experience in the following words:
“I have endured the pain in my leg for so many months now. When I see people walking without any difficulty, I pray to God to grant me a cure as well. Transparent Hands has helped me come one step closer to getting my surgery done. The gratitude that I feel cannot be expressed in words.”
