Dubai: Indian delivery rider gets new lease on life after accident crushes his face

An Indian motorcycle delivery rider whose face was crushed when he was hit by a four-wheel vehicle has made a miraculous recovery, thanks to a groundbreaking reconstruction surgery at Aster Hospital in Dubai.

Following a 14-hour complex facial reconstruction surgery and more than 16 days in hospital,
Mohammad Thausif Kaiyoor has made an 80 percent recovery following his horrific accident last January. He is currently recuperating in India.

Kaiyoor, who worked for Aster Pharmacy, was delivering medicine in Sharjah’s Abu Shagara area when he was hit from behind by a four-wheel vehicle. The accident crushed all his facial bones, and also left a deep wound in his left thigh.

He was admitted to a local hospital in Sharjah where he spent six days before he was moved to Aster Hospital in Mankhool.

Dr. Raju Prem, Specialist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon at Aster Hospital, said despite the extent of Kaiyoor’s injuries, his brain and skull were miraculously not impacted.

Dr. Prem, however, said Kaiyoor’s facial injuries was “one of the worst” he has ever seen because the accident had “crushed every facial bone of his”.

After an assessment, the hospital decided to go ahead with facial reconstruction surgery that lasted for about 14 hours. The complex surgery was a success.

Kaiyoor was able to start eating solid food within two days after his surgery, and was discharged within ten days. He thanked his doctors for giving him hope “during my darkest times”. He is hoping to get back to work in Dubai soon. ICA/Expat Media
