Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha on Wednesday performed a critical Maxillofacial surgery on a 10 -yrs old boy at Tripura Medical College (TMC) who has been suffering from cystically growth on the upper part of the mouth that caused an effect on the bones of his nasal sinus.
According to Dr Amit Lal Goswami, Associate Professor of Dentistry, the Chief Minister was consulted as an expert on the subject who has been serving as Professor of the department in TMC and he had planned the cystic lesion marsupialization and treatment procedure.
“A seven-member team headed by Dr Saha performed the surgery for more than an hour,” Dr Goswami said, adding that the Chief Minister had planned the surgery in a manner that would not affect the existing teeth and their future growth. The patient was feeling uncomfortable due to a cyst inside the mouth, which has become a problem with his regular food intake, and CM despite his extremely busy schedule performed the surgery.
