What is Spinal Surgery ?
A Spinal Surgery is the surgical procedure
used for alleviating pain and disability in the spine
caused by a lesion/trauma which has failed to
improve with other non surgical options such
as physiotherapy, medications etc.
Spine is divided into 5 types of vertebrae –
7 Cervical,12 Thoracic, 5 Lumbar segments, 5 Sacral
and Coccyx. Of these segments, cervical and lumbar
spines are the segments that commonly undergo
Types of Spinal Procedures
Discectomy – Removal of the disc lying between the two vertebral bodies.
Laminectomy - It is the excision of the bony lamina (part of the spinal
Laminotomy - It is the removal of a small portion of the lamina and
ligaments, usually on one side.
Foraminotomy - Removal of bone, disc, scar tissue or excessive ligament
around the inter-vertebral foramen, that is compressing the nerve bundles.
Spinal Fusion - Fusion is the spine surgery in which two vertebrae are
joined with a bone graft or any similar biological substance. It is used to
eliminate motion between adjacent vertebrae.
Spinal Decompression – It refers to surgically removing the tissues which
are pressing against the spinal cord or the nerves resulting in pain or other
Common indications for spinal Surgery:
Osteo-arthritis of cervical spine
Thinning of the disc
Common Spinal surgical procedures:
Cervical Decompression Surgery – The procedure involves surgically
removing the tissues which are pressing against the spinal cord or
the nerves resulting in pain or other problems
Cervical Fusion Surgery – In this surgery, the adjacent vertebral
bodies, facets or the lamina may be fused together. The intervertebral disc material is removed and bone graft, taken from the top
of your hip, is put in its place
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Spinal
Smaller incision and smaller scars
Less damage to muscle and skin
Less blood loss
Shorter hospital stay
Quick recovery and rehabilitation
quick return to activities of daily living
Recovery after Advanced Spinal
With the advent of the most advanced techniques,
there has been a high success rate of spine
surgeries for even complex spinal disorders.
The cervical and lumbar spine surgeries have
excellent outcome. Patients generally have rapid
recovery and quickly return to activities of daily living
with complete resolution of their symptoms.
Good nutrition and slowly increasing activity (as
recommended by your physician) along with
physiotherapy during the recovery period lead to a
successful spine surgery.
