Panha is a 14-year-old student who needs spinal surgery. His parents are both farmers, and he has one younger sister. He loves to read stories at school, and wants to be a policeman when he gets older.
Panha was born with scoliosis. This condition has made it difficult for him to walk or sit up for a long time, and he often feels discomfort before going to sleep. It is difficult for him to join his friends in sports such as volleyball or soccer. He also occasionally has difficulty breathing due to pain.
Panha and his parents have come to Children’s Surgical Centre, where doctors will be able to perform a spinal surgery to put in place implants that will correct the curve of his spine. He will undergo this procedure on May 25th. Once he has recovered, Panha will no longer experience pain or discomfort, and will be able to walk easily.
Panha shared, “I want to play sports with my friends and I will practice running and getting stronger after I am healthy from my surgery.”

Panha underwent life-changing spinal surgery.
Panha is a young man who remains brave through surgery and through his recovery process. He understands that his recovery from sclerosis will be long, but it will be worth it. This surgery ensured that his condition will not worsen as he grows. Panha has started physiotherapy and will return regularly to the doctors at CSC to ensure his continued progress. Panha is hopeful for improvements over the next few years, and is optimistic about being able to fulfill his dream of becoming a policeman one day.
His mother tells us about Panha’s improvements, “Panha will be able to return to school soon, and although his care is not completed, he can enjoy being with his friends and soon play sports. He can breathe better, and stand tall as he grows older.”
