A promising Kashmiri medico Dr Tariq Ahmed Trumboo presently undergoing research at King Abdul Aziz hospital Jedah with a Saudi and Amercian doctors has won accolades from different countries for his role in new method of treatment for spinal cord stenosis (abnormal narrowing of the spinal cord).

Dr Trumbo is part of the team of doctors presently working on a research project on stenosis financially supported by King Abdul Aziz Hospital Jedah and receiving technological help from Knazawa Hospital Japan who have developed new method for treatment of stenosis (abnormal narrowing of the spinal cord).

Reports pouring in from Saudi Arabia said that technically referred to as spinal decompression using percutaneous technique the new procedure has been invented by Dr Tariq Ahmad Trumboo from Kashmir along with Dr Ashraf Taha from the United States of  America and Dr Abdullah Kaki from Saudi Arabia under International patent application No. PCT/US12/47050. The doctors, reports said, are currently working on it at the Research and Development Department of King Abdul Aziz hospital Jeddah Saudi Arabia under high-level of secrecy.

Dr Trumbo when contacted said “The new procedure can act as a missing link between spinal surgery and conservative management of treatment.”  While elaborating Dr Trumboo said with the invention of T-Technique medicos will have the professional ability to correct the spinal disorders with minimally invasive procedure without surgery or general anesthesia.

He further said “hopefully new method will benefit millions of people around the world”. Worth mentioning is the fact that the spinal stenosis is an abnormal narrowing (stenosis) of the spinal canal that may occur in any of the regions of the spine. This narrowing, according to medicos, causes a restriction to the spinal canal, resulting in a neurological deficit. Symptoms include pain, numbness, paresthesia, and loss of motor control.

Tramboo explained that spinal canal stenosis mainly affects population over 50 years of age but can even affect younger people. “A Patient with this disorder cannot walk much. He has to stop after walking a distance or else face severe pain and numbness in legs,” he said. “It is not uncommon to see old people leaning forward while moving. This is because they have spinal canal stenosis and leaning forward gives them relief in symptoms.”

Claiming that this new procedure was demonstrated at King Abdul Aziz University Hospital Jeddah where spinal canal diameter can be modified by performing bilateral laminotomy without incision, Dr Trumboo said ‘King Abdul Aziz Hospital Jeddah will be providing financial support and Knazawa Hospital Japan will be providing technological help for this research’. Meanwhile, Prof Tomita, Director Kanazawa Hospital Japan, who has described this new technique as “breakthrough” after reviewing it. Tomita is credited with 40 years of experience as a spinal surgeon, has mentioned that T-technique was the “missing link of between massive spinal surgery and conservative management for treating spinal canal stenosis.”


  1. Spinal fusion is surgery to fuse spine bones (vertebrae) that cause you to have back problems.Fusing means two bones are permanently placed together so there is no longer movement between them. Spinal fusion is usually done along with other surgical procedures of the spine.The surgeon will use a graft (such as bone) to hold (or fuse) the bones together permanently.

  2. The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that carries messages between the brain and the rest of the body.Acute spinal cord injury (SCI) is due to a traumatic injury that can either result in a bruise (also called a contusion), a partial tear, or a complete tear (called a transection) in the spinal cord. About 250,000 to 400,000 individuals in the US have a spinal cord injury. About 60 percent of these cases are 30 years old or younger. SCI results in a decreased or absence of movement, sensation, and body organ function below the level of the injury. The most common sites of injury are the cervical and thoracic areas. SCI is a common cause of permanent disability and death in children and adults.
