Karma Demar of Bhutan had rotted nose due to cancer. Twice surgery at Tata Memorial in India was unsuccessful. In the end, he got a healthy nose back in Bangladesh. All credit goes to Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery. Very healthy karma in 12 days, now waiting to return home.
Karma Dema, a Bhutanese college student admitted to Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery. Cancer was diagnosed in the nasal cavity 10 years ago. Even though he is free from cancer after treatment in India, his nose rots. He was admitted to Tata Memorial for nose reconstruction. But twice the surgery was not successful.
At an event in Bhutan, Karma met Samant Lal Sen, a physician. On his advice, he came to Bangladesh on December 14. On January 9, the surgery was performed at the Bern Institute.
In this context, Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery Associate Professor Dr. Haseeb Rahman said, the operation is very complicated, because Karma Demar was done through free flat microsurgery with rib cartilage and hand tissue. Which may not always work correctly, but we have succeeded.
Another associate professor of Sheikh Hasina National Burn and Plastic Surgery Institute. Pradeep Chandra Das said, once a surgery is done, an organ cannot be fully formed or completely beautified. Now I have successfully set up a structure. After three to six months, one or two minor operations will be required.
Doctors said that this is the first complex surgery in Bangladesh for a foreign patient who came on a medical visa. He thinks that the image of the country will be bright in the world due to success.
Karma Dema will be under observation for a few more days. Doctors say that he will recover soon and return to Bhutan.
