Spinal Tumor: Adam's Story
At only 10 years old, Adam Ali had gone through more surgeries than many adults ever will. His father scoured the Internet for better options—a surgery that wouldn't just eradicate Adam's spinal tumor, but held the greatest promise for full recovery. In Johns Hopkins spinal surgeon George Jallo, Mr. Ali found that promise, combined with the expertise to back it up. The family journeyed all the way from Malaysia to have Adam's tumor removed. Merely three weeks after Dr. Jallo operated on him, Adam returned home on his own two feet. Adam, his father, and Dr. Jallo share the story of his journey halfway around the world and back to childhood as it should be.
