Richard Antamba, a 19-year old Ecuadorian citizen, reached Mumbai, India in November 2014, hopeful that he would get a second chance in life. Richard suffered from severe scoliosis that was deteriorating his quality of life and that would have led to a premature death. In Ecuador, Richard’s case was considered inoperable. In the United States the surgery would have been extremely expensive. Thanks to Dr. Kulkarni’s expertise and experience Richard’s surgery was a complete success. Richard is back in Ecuador, enjoying his second chance in life. On behalf of the Ecuadorian government I would like to thank Dr. Arvind Kulkarni and his team for the miracle they performed in Richard’s life.
