Areas of excellence
Laminectomy – The surgical procedure involves the removal of the vertebral bone or a portion of it. Also referred to as decompression surgery, the procedure helps to enlarge the spinal canal so as to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves and ease pain and other associated symptoms. Laminectomy is very effective in treating bone spurs and spinal stenosis.
Foraminotomy – Foraminotomy involves the surgical removal of the bones and tissues that obstruct the exit passage where the spinal nerve root leaves the spinal canal. It is a type of decompression surgery that aims at enlarging the passage, so as to relieve pressure and help with associated symptoms like pain, inflammation and limited range of motion.
Discectomy – The surgical procedure aims at removing the damaged portion of a herniated disc from the patient’s spine. If left untreated, the same can compress the surrounding nerves, leading to immense pain and discomfort. Discectomy can be performed in a number of ways, which involve both, the conventional open surgery and new minimally invasive technique.
Spinal Fusion – It is one of the most common types of surgeries performed to treat back pain. It involves the permanent fusion of two spinal bones so as to limit motion as well as the extent to which your nerves can stretch. Spinal fusion involves the use of a bone-like component which is used to fill the space between two consecutive spinal vertebrae. These are held together with the help of metal plates, screws and rods.
Disk replacement – The surgery involves the replacement of a damaged or worn-out spinal disk with a prosthetic component. The aim of the surgery is to relieve pain while preserving the normal range of motion. There are slight chances that the prosthetic disk might slip from its position. In such cases, the patient might need repair surgery.
Interlaminar implant – The surgical procedure involves the implantation of a U-shaped apparatus in-between two vertebrae in the lumbar region. This prevents the bones from collapsing and also helps to relieve pressure from the spinal nerve. Unlike spinal fusion, the procedure provides significant stability and guarantees almost the normal range of motion.
Spinal Tumour Surgery – Spinal tumour surgery offers advanced surgical techniques for the removal of various spinal tumours. These are small malignant or benign growths that develop on the spine as a result of unhealthy changes in the DNA of the spinal cells and tissues. Spinal tumours are further categorised into primary and secondary spinal tumours. The former develops in the spine itself whereas the latter is a result of metastasis.
