Pain Management Injections In Spinal Disorders
Most of the times when a patient says that I have had spinal injection for pain management it is seen that they have had an epidural injection and somewhere in the general perception pain management is considered same as epidural injections.
Endoscopic Spine Surgery
Both microdiscectomy and endoscopic discectomy are modern minimally invasive procedures designed for treatment of patients with sciatica symptoms secondary to disk prolapses.
With the advent of newer and newer technologies spine surgeries are becoming safer and safer. The long associated risk of paralysis after spine surgery has become a rarest of rare occurrence.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
The main motive behind minimally invasive spine surgery is to bring in newer techniques that help in dealing with spine pathologies
Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF)
Interbody fusion means the disc is removed and replaced with a bone spacer (metal or plastic may also be used).
Anterior Dorsolumbar Spine Surgery
Although recent trends favour use of less invasive posterior only approach for most spinal diseases involvingdorsolumbar area.
Scoliosis And Kyphosis Correction Surgery
Scoliosis and kyphosis correction surgery are also called deformity correction surgeries the main motive of these surgeries is to get a bent spine back into acceptable alignment.
Growing Rods And VEPTR Surgery
When spinal deformity occurs in particularly young patients (Early onset scoliosis <5 years of age) the goal of treatment is not just to correct the deformity
Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are cementing techniques in these a special type of cement is introduced into the fractured vertebrae to act as a support system
Laminectomy/Laminoplasty/Lateral Mass Fixation
Posterior cervical surgery are usually done when a patient has multilevel spinal problems in his cervical spine usually presenting as cervical myelopathy.
The anterior approach to cervical spine is a preferred approach when we are dealing with diseases confined to one/two spinal level or diseases solely involving the anterior column.
Cervical Disc Replacement Surgery
The gold standard treatment for single level cervical radiculopathy is ACDF surgery but it has been seen that these fusion surgeries carry a risk of adjacent segment disease over the next few years.
Occipito-Cervical Fusion Surgery
Occipito-cervical fusion (OCF) is required when the junction is rendered unstable by a variety of pathological conditions including congenital abnormalities
