HYDERABAD: Bharat Chetti, all of 24 years, was like any other regular guy of his age, unmarried, ambitious and full of life, apple of his parents’ eyes and just on the brink of a bright career. He was rushing through the early morning roads, driving his car, to reach his office shift at 5:30 am near the Hi-tech City. What seemed like a normal morning, turned into a nightmare when his car rammed into a lorry.

Bharat suffered to a severe head injury along with multiple facial bone fractures. With the wind shield of his car crashing right in front of his face, he was at risk of losing his lips, nose and teeth.

He was brought to MaxCure Hospitals in an unconscious state where the emergency team immediately stabilised his condition and shifted him to ICU and Dr Ghanshyam put him on ventilator support.

He underwent a battery of tests while pre- assessment was done by Dr. Akhilesh and team, who performed the first surgery apart from cleaning the wound by removing the dead tissues and other foreign material on the same day.

This was followed by another small procedure by the ENT team.

The next day, after the patient’s condition stabilised and his blood circulation started improving, he was operated for upper lip and nose by MaxCure’s plastic surgeon. Dr. Kiran Banda says that an innovative regenerative therapy was used to promote hard and soft tissue healing, along with titanium mesh and collagen membrane with dental implants by Dr. Hozrmud Vakil, the dental surgeon.

The surgery lasted for six hours and in about two weeks Bharat is back to his normal self. 

He spoke to the media in a press conference organised by the hospital.
