Surgery enables man to open his mouth after 38 years

Rajendra Panchal met with an accident when he was one year old, after which he faced problems and was unable to open his mouth completely for 38 years. He could feed only on liquids which was affecting his health. Now, the 39-year-old man can open his mouth properly and eat solid foods, thanks to a rare surgery performed by doctors at MA Rangoonwala College of Dental Sciences and Research Centre.

Panchal was suffering from a rare condition called Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis , a condition in which the face joint gets fused to the skull. The surgery took four hours and the fusing of the skull bone was removed helping the patient open the mouth by up to 45mm.
