Spine Surgery


Spine surgery encompasses a spectrum of surgical interventions aimed at addressing various conditions affecting the spine, including degenerative disorders, deformities, injuries, and tumors. Spine surgery becomes a consideration when conservative treatments, such as medication, physical therapy, or injections, fail to alleviate symptoms effectively or when the condition progresses to a point where surgical intervention is deemed necessary.  Surgical techniques employed in spine surgery are diverse and tailored to the specific pathology and patient's needs. These may involve decompression procedures to relieve pressure on spinal nerves, such as discectomy or laminectomy, spinal fusion to stabilize the spine, disc replacement surgery to address damaged intervertebral discs, or minimally invasive approaches for certain conditions. Recovery from spine surgery varies depending on the type and complexity of the procedure, as well as individual patient factors. Typically, it involves a period of postoperative rest followed by rehabilitation and physical therapy aimed at promoting healing, restoring mobility, and improving function. Ultimately, advances in spine surgery techniques and technologies continue to enhance surgical outcomes and expand treatment options, contributing to improved patient care and outcomes in this field.
