Spine surgery

The diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the spine, which includes the vertebrae, discs, nerves, and other tissues, is the focus of the medical speciality known as spine surgery. For those with spine-related problems, spine surgery aims to reduce pain, enhance function, and improve quality of life.

Common Spinal Conditions:

  1. Herniated Disc: A condition where the soft inner core of a spinal disc pushes through the outer layer, causing pain and nerve compression.

  2. Spinal Stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal canal, which can put pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, resulting in pain, weakness, and numbness.

  3. Scoliosis: An abnormal curvature of the spine, which may require surgery if severe or progressive.

  4. Degenerative Disc Disease: The natural ageing process can lead to the deterioration of spinal discs, causing pain and reduced mobility.

  5. Spinal Fractures: Fractures of the vertebrae, often caused by trauma or osteoporosis.

     

    Types of Spine Surgery:

    1. Discectomy: Removal of a portion or the entire herniated disc to relieve pressure on nerves.

    2. Laminectomy: Removal of the lamina (the bony arch on the posterior of the vertebra) to relieve spinal stenosis.

    3. Spinal Fusion: Joining two or more vertebrae together to stabilise the spine, often used in cases of instability or deformity.

    4. Artificial Disc Replacement: Replacing a damaged disc with an artificial one to preserve motion and reduce pain.

    5. Minimally Invasive Surgery: Techniques that use smaller incisions and specialized instruments to minimize tissue damage and shorten recovery time.
