Spine surgeons at the Department of Spine Surgery combine their experience, expertise, and innovation to offer the most appropriate surgical procedures for treating challenging spine conditions. Surgeries include:
- Spinal Fusion: It is a surgical treatment that fuses two vertebrae or bones present in the spine together. It is usually performed in combination with other surgeries such as laminectomy, foraminotomy, etc. It may be performed for the treatment of spinal stenosis, scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, post discectomy, in case of vertebral fractures, tumors or infections, etc.
- Discectomy: It is a surgical treatment to remove an abnormal or herniated disc that puts excessive pressure on the spinal cord. This excessive pressure may be responsible for causing pain, weakness, or even numbness. This surgery may also be performed in combination with other back surgeries.
- Microdiscectomy: It is a surgery to remove the ruptured disc, but does not involve excessive surgery on the bones, ligaments, or muscles present in the spine.
- Laminectomy: It is a surgical procedure to remove the lamina of the spine. It is performed to open the spinal canal to give more space to the spinal nerves, or to remove bone spurs from the spine. It helps relieve the pressure on the spinal nerves.
The goal of the specialists at the Department of Spine Surgery is to treat the symptoms of all the patients with the least amount of surgery possible. In most cases, treatments such as anti-inflammatory medicines, physical therapy, and exercise are extremely effective to treat the symptoms of a spinal condition. If, however, a patient continues to experience severe symptoms and the non-operative treatments seem to be ineffective, then surgeries are performed.
Some non-surgical treatments include:
- Physiatry: This includes exercise therapy, the use of medications, and non-surgical decompression techniques.
- Chiropractic Techniques: These techniques include manual spinal manipulation, flexion-distraction therapy, manual soft tissue therapies, McKenzie mechanical diagnosis and treatment, Graston instrumented soft tissue manipulation, as well as ergonomic advice and lifestyle modifications.
