A British surgeon says he has successfully performed a gastric surgery on a woman who had been left in a wheelchair after she underwent surgery to remove a torn meniscous stent in 2012.
According to the British Medical Journal (BMJ), Dr. James Coughlan, who has performed over 50 operations on the NHS, said the woman, who is now 65, has had “a really good recovery”.
Dr. Coughlon, who also runs the gastric bypass clinic at University Hospital in Birmingham, said he had successfully operated on the woman in November 2012.
The woman, whose name was not released, had been living with the condition of partial paralysis since her surgery.
The condition was first discovered when she was five years old, and she spent several months in a rehabilitation unit.
According the BMJ, the woman’s condition deteriorated, and in April 2014, she needed an operation to repair her stent.
The surgery was successful and the stent was removed in May of that year.
The British Medical Association (BMA) said in a statement that it is concerned about the safety of this surgery and the need to be vigilant about the long-term effects.
It said it is also concerned about how the surgery has been carried out and the lack of follow-up care.
Dr. James said in an interview with the BBC that the surgery had been carried on in the “right way”.
“We were able to get the stents through, and I am absolutely delighted to say that it worked,” he said.
“It’s not going to be as easy as it was when we first did it, but the procedure itself has been incredibly easy and very quick.”
Dr. D. Scott Coughlin, a gastroenterologist and the chief medical officer of the BMA, told the BBC it is important that patients are properly assessed before undergoing surgery.
“If we were not confident of the outcome, then we would have not done it,” he told the broadcaster.
We do think that the patients are being very cautious and that’s why I think it’s really important that they know that we will carry out a surgical procedure that they have been told about, that they are going to get a safe outcome and that they can get a comfortable outcome.””
The patient should be told about the possibility of complications before the operation and they should be reassured before they begin.”

“Dr Coughlyn said that the woman was “very lucky” that she had been able to receive her surgery in time.”
I would like to think that this would have been very different had it been later,” he added.
Dr Croughlyn said it was not uncommon for patients to need to undergo surgery in the first few weeks of their life.”
There are quite a few cases where there is a very good prognosis,” he explained.”
And we do think there is the possibility that the outcome would have come about differently had it not been for the surgery.
