    Welcome to CareCure!

    I assume you father actually fractured his vertebrae at C3-6. What is his actually neurologic injury? The doctors should be able to tell you his ASIA or ISNCSCI exam results. It is very important that his exam be done now, and then periodically during his recovery from the injury.

    Currently there is no legitimate cure for spinal cord injury. Much research is being done, but there is really nothing that is working yet. You can read much more about this in our Cure forum here.

    It will be critical for your father to get care from a major and specialty spinal cord injury center. Many people with cervical spinal cord injuries are initially on a ventilator. If his injury level is actually C4 or below, it is likely he will eventually be weaned or removed from the ventilator.

    While there is no cure, there is much that your father can learn by going through a specialty acute inpatient spinal cord injury rehabilitation program. This would enable him to return home with his family, although probably using a wheelchair and needing assistance from caregivers. Depending on your resources, this may mean getting him care out of the country. I know that many Saudis have come to the USA and European centers for their acute rehabilitation. I don't believe there is such a center in your country.

    Please come back and ask questions. We can help.

                In the meantime you can obtain much information to your questions if you search / read the forums on this site
                There is much education here ...


                As for Neurosurgeons it is hard because what do you want to do ? Relocate to USA ?
                If you Both come to the States we can refer Neurosurgeons and great rehab facilities etc... but I personally do not know much about your Geographical location and alternatives over there .
                I wish your Dad good health and comfort in his healing .
                Sincerely ;
                GL

                  Please just summarize here the information from the reports about which you have questions. There is really no one available to read thorugh all his medical records, and we would still need to know just what it is that you need to know.

                    Thank you so much..
                    I will surely look into that sites..
                    my currently location is Saudi arabia, (Jeddah).. you can google it to know more about it..
                    Actually here, the care is no doubt is very good but they are doing the normal routine since 2 and half months, so there are no changings in his condition.
                    that is why i am searching hospitals and neurosurgeons around the world.
                    if any body will help.. it would be very helpful for me.
                    Thanks..

                        Is he in a spinal cord injury specialty rehabilitation center? This is critical. At 2.5 months, he should actually be nearly ready to come home. As we said above, there is currently no cure, so if he got the proper initial care (decompression, stabilization surgery, bracing, steroids) there is really no more medically that can be done at this point to make the spinal cord repair itself.

                        Again, it would be good to know what his ASIA level and AIS score is.
