No More Back Pain……With Advanced Spinal Surgeries

Back pain or Spine pain will be experienced almost by everyone once in a lifetime. Intervertebral discs are made up of a vertebra, bony segments, and fibrous tissues. Fracture, infection of the spine, degenerative disease, disc dislocation, spine deformity will lead to a chronic back pain. Acute back pain can be treated with medication, physiotherapy whereas chronic back pain is treated only by surgical intervention.

The surgical methods used to treat chronic back pain and spine related conditions are open surgery and minimally invasive surgery. Open surgery will be lengthy and it needs a long resting period. But, Minimally invasive spine surgery will give a faster recovery. That’s why it is recommended by the orthopedic surgeons.

There are some surgical methods used for the spine surgery are:

Minimally Invasive Spine Fusion Surgery

In this method, the orthopedic surgeon makes small incisions to reach the spine. When compared to the traditional method, this procedure comprises only small incisions instead of a large incision. The fluoroscopy is inserted in the small incision which enables the accuracy and reduces operative risks. This procedure is more advanced as it allows only less trauma, less scar, and a few days of hospital stay.

Lumbar Disc Replacement

In between the vertebrae, the intervertebral disc is located. Nucleus pulposus, a jelly-like substance is present in the intervertebral disc. The substance works as a shock absorber. When the nucleus pulposus is damaged, there will be an elevated strain on the surrounding collagen tissue. This condition finally leads to the disc degeneration and it causes back pain.

Since Lumbar disc replacement is a large procedure, general anesthesia is administered to the patient. The surgeon makes an incision in the abdomen to access the spine. Then the damaged intervertebral disc is removed. The surgeon replaces the removed disc with an artificial prosthesis which is usually made up of a metal/ metal &plastic. Then, the incision is sutured. The patient is put on medicines to feel pain-free. The patient may be in the hospital for 3-5 days depends on his post-operative condition.

Lumbar Spinal Fusion

In this conservative method, pain or instability of degenerative disc is treated. In the surgery, screws are inserted into the bony segments of spinal which are then connected with rods. A small bone piece is taken out from the patient’s pelvic area and placed across the vertebrae so as to form a new bone between two vertebrae. Restricting the movement of vertebrae and relieving pain is the ultimate objective of the surgery.
