BRAIN SURGERY SURVIVOR
Stryder is a 9 year old boy who needs surgery to fix his neck which dislocates in both the front- He has already had brain surgery to fix other problems as well as a fusion from his skull to C3.
More Surgery Needed
Stryder will need an anterior fusion and tethered cord release
Craniocervical Instability
CCI means his ligaments are too weak to support his head, for Stryder, his neck is continually dislocating.
Long-term Damage
Stryder must wear a neck brace to prevent further damage and cause blackouts from the vertebra hitting his spinal cord.
Past Brain Surgeries
Stryder has had a fusion from O-C3. Retrofelxed Odontiod Shaving. Chiari Decompression.
Why New York?
There are only a few surgeons in the world who can conduct successful fusions due to Stryder’s poor connective tissue.
Future Surgeries
Stryder will need more neck surgeries in the future because of his weak connective tissue- We do not know what this means for his future.
