A teenage girl suffering from a debilitating condition has been given a new lease of life thanks to a rare operation performed in Bahrain.
The 13-year-old girl, whose identity has not been revealed, was suffering from scoliosis - a curvature of the spine which severely affected her quality of life, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
However, following a successful operation to correct it, performed by Royal Bahrain Hospital specialist spinal surgeon Dr Henry Graf, she is now able to lead a normal life.
