Spinal Cord Injury Mela (Gathering) Held

For four years Duncan Hospital has been hosting a gathering for people with spinal cord injuries. Participants are seen by a team of doctors and therapists and assessed for pressure sores and other issues that affect them. Best of all, they are deeply impacted seeing others who have won wheelchair marathons despite being paraplegics. Over the last few years, more than 15 people have either been operated on or rehabilitated for spinal cord injury and its side effects. Duncan Hospital is the only center in the entire state of Bihar (123 million people) where a spinal cord injury rehab program exists.
