How Safe and Successful are Spinal Surgeries ?

How Safe and Successful are Spinal Surgeries ?

Posted On : July 12, 2019

Back pain is one of the most common conditions that most of us experience at some point in our lives. It usually occurs due to straining of the muscles, degenerative tissues, herniated disc, sacroiliac joint disease, arthritis, fracture in the lumbar vertebrae etc. and can be experienced in the upper back, mid-back or lower back region. There has been a spurt in the number of people experiencing back pain in recent times due to poor posture and lack of exercise brought about by the modern sedentary lifestyle.

SL Raheja Hospital ( A Fortis Associate) is one of the best hospitals in Mumbai and has a stellar reputation in the realm of back pain and spinal surgeries, thanks to its advanced infrastructure as well as the latest techniques practiced by its team of orthopedists and back pain specialists and complicated medical procedures including cervical and lumbar disc surgeries, degenerative spine surgeries, treatment of various spinal injuries and fractures using advanced techniques such as image-guided and keyhole surgeries.

What makes S. L Raheja one of the top orthopedic hospitals in Mumbai?

S.L Raheja offers a host of cutting-edge technologies which enhances the way they treat patients. The dedicated team of doctors, aided by the ultra-modern amenities endeavor to resolve the health issues, including the ones affecting the spine, with the aim of facilitating the successful recovery of the patients. In line with our vision of providing the best possible healthcare to the masses, our spine surgery costs are priced reasonably and well within the reach of the common man. All of these factors come together to ensure a safe and successful outcome for all the spinal surgeries that we undertake.

Some of the spinal surgeries which are performed in our premises are:

  • Artificial Disc Replacement:

    It involves replacing a painful disc that is causing chronic back pain with an artificial disc that provides relief from the pain without compromising the spine’s natural anatomical structure. The artificial disc is similar to the damaged one in structure and also share similar functions.

  • Cervical Disc Replacement:

    In this procedure, an artificial disc is inserted between two vertebrae in the neck which act as shock absorbers between the bones of the neck or the cervical spine.

  • Lumbar Puncture:

    A needle is inserted between the two vertebrae to remove a sample of the cerebrospinal fluid in order to diagnose serious infections such as meningitis and other disorders of the central nervous system.

  • Diskectomy:

  • A surgical procedure to remove the damaged portion of a herniated disk in the spine.
  • Laminectomy:

    It is a surgery that creates space by removing the lamina, or the back part of the vertebra covering the spinal canal to relieve the pressure on the spinal cord.

  • Spinal Fusion:

    This surgery is done to connect two or more vertebrae in your spine and eliminate the motion between them.

In order to facilitate safer surgery with reduced risk and blood loss, as well as enhanced safety and faster recovery, the surgeons at our hospital make use of minimally invasive spine surgery, a modern technique that involves minimal incisions using a device known as a laparoscope. That speaks to our commitment towards patient safety and well-being.
