Conditions Treated by the Spine Surgery Department
- Herniated Discs: This occurs when the soft inner portion of a spinal disc protrudes through the tough outer layer, potentially compressing nearby nerves.
- Spinal Stenosis: A narrowing of the spinal canal that can lead to compression of the spinal cord and nerves, resulting in pain, numbness, and weakness.
- Scoliosis: A curvature of the spine, which can range from mild to severe, often requiring surgical intervention for correction.
- Degenerative Disc Disease: The gradual breakdown of spinal discs over time, leading to pain and reduced mobility.
- Spondylolisthesis: This condition occurs when a vertebra slips forward over the vertebra below it, potentially causing pain and nerve compression.
- Spinal Fractures: These may result from trauma, osteoporosis, or other underlying conditions, requiring surgical stabilization.
- Vertebral Compression Fractures: Common in individuals with osteoporosis, these fractures can lead to a reduction in vertebral height and significant pain.
- Tumors and Abnormal Growths: Spinal tumors, whether benign or malignant, may necessitate surgical removal and stabilization.
- Spinal Infections: Conditions like spinal abscesses or osteomyelitis may require surgical intervention for drainage and debridement.
- Failed Back Surgery Syndrome: For individuals who have not experienced relief from previous surgeries, revision surgery may be necessary.
- Spinal Fusion: This procedure involves joining two or more vertebrae together using bone grafts or implants to stabilize the spine and reduce pain.
- Artificial Disc Replacement: In select cases, damaged spinal discs are replaced with artificial ones to preserve motion and reduce pain.
- Discectomy: In this procedure, the portion of a herniated disc causing compression is removed to relieve pressure on spinal nerves.
- Laminectomy and Laminoforaminotomy: This surgery involves removing a part of lamina (back part) of a vertebra to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.
- Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS): Utilizing advanced technology and specialized instruments, MIS techniques allow surgeons to perform complex spinal procedures through small incisions. This results in less tissue damage, reduced blood loss, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times.
- Robotic-Assisted Surgery: Robotics assist surgeons in performing precise, controlled movements during procedures, enhancing accuracy and improving outcomes.
- Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty: These procedures involve injecting a special cement-like material into fractured vertebrae to stabilize and alleviate pain.
- Spine surgery can prevent impending neurological deficits which may lead to weakness of hands and legs, difficulty in standing and walking and impairment of bladder control.
- Pain Relief: Spine surgery can provide significant pain relief for individuals suffering from chronic spinal conditions, allowing them to regain mobility and function.
- Improved Quality of Life: By addressing the underlying cause of spinal disorders, surgery can enhance a patient's overall well-being, enabling them to engage in daily activities with greater ease.
- Restored Functionality: For individuals experiencing limitations in movement, spine surgery can help restore functionality and mobility, improving their ability to perform everyday tasks.
