UK Neurosurgeon Performs 2 Simultaneous Surgeries

As per reports, it has been revealed that a neurosurgeon carried out two brain surgeries concurrently. Neurosurgeon Saurabh Sinha carried out two brain surgeries at the Sheffield Children's Hospital simultaneously and said that it was the only way to protect the lives of the two boys.

The families of the boys were not aware that Sinha is carrying out surgeries together. It was only when they met each other and found that both the boys are being operated at the same time. One of the boys, who underwent surgery was Owen Wilkinson, eight, and suffered skull fracture.

His mother Caroline said that she got the news that Owen has fallen in his school’s playground and has suffered minor injuries. Her mother further affirmed that he started feeling ill and was then taken to Barnsley General Hospital, where it was found that his injuries were quite serious.

He was then transferred to Sheffield Children's Hospital and there it was found that he has suffered skull fracture and was bleeding profusely. He was taken for brain surgery and while waiting outside the operation theatre, Owen’s parents met another couple, whose son has also been taken for the same surgery.

Caroline said, “What was even more incredible was that Mark recognized the other boy's father from football. When we realized that the boys needed the same emergency operation it made us even more anxious about them”.

In addition, it has been found that Sinha is one of the few surgeons in the UK, who performs brain surgery through the nose rather than cutting the skull. Sinha said that both the surgeries went well and both of the boys are recovering well. It is hoped that both of them will be discharged at the same time.
