LH woman heading to US for sugery

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Jayne L’Amour is forking out thousands of dollars to have life-changing surgery in the United States.

The Lower Hutt former dancer and fitness instructor has a rare condition, known as slipping rib syndrome. It occurs occurs when the cartilage on a person’s lower ribs slips and moves, leading to pain in their chest or upper abdomen.
The options in New Zealand include removing ribs, but a pioneer surgeon in the US has worked out a way to stabilise them.

She is heading heading to the United Hospital Centre in Bridgeport, West Virginia, for surgery, and will spend a month in America.
