AREAS OF EXPERTISE
- Minimally invasive spine surgery - It is a new-age technique that has revolutionised spinal care by making it possible for doctors to perform complex spinal procedures via tiny keyhole incisions. Minimally invasive spine surgery uses detailed guidance offered by a surgical camera, to precisely guide the equipment to address the problem.
- Endoscopic spine surgery - It is a minimally invasive intervention that uses detailed imaging guidance offered by an endoscope, to assess and treat complex spine conditions. ESS offers a wide range of benefits over conventional spine surgeries, such as minimal blood loss, reduced post-operative discomfort and faster recovery.
- Spinal deformities - Spinal deformities refer to structural or functional deformities in the spine, often marked by pain, neurological complications and problems related to mobility. Kyphosis. Lordosis and Scoliosis are three of the most common spinal deformities that are marked by an abnormal curvature in the vertebral column. Such deformities may be present since birth or developed post-birth.
- Spinal infections - It is an umbrella term used for various infections that develop when microbes like bacteria, viruses and fungi invade the spine. Although such infections are quite rare, these are potentially serious and can progress to give rise to life-threatening complications. These can target any part of the spine, be it the vertebrae, the spinal canal, the discs or the spinal cord.
- Spinal cord injuries - Spinal cord injury can be caused by a blunt physical impact that could be the result of an accident, fall or trauma. Such injuries can affect any part of the spinal column and have been predominantly linked with road traffic accidents. Blunt impact can lead to crushing and fracture, whereas penetration of sharp objects can cause tearing. Spinal cord injuries are often debilitating and require months of rehabilitation.
- Spine tumours - These refer to all the cancerous/non-cancerous growths that develop on any part of the spinal column, owing to uncontrolled cell growth. Tumours that develop within the spinal cord are commonly referred to as intramedullary tumours whereas those that develop on the outer side of the spinal cord are referred to as intradural-extramedullary tumours.
- Degenerative spine diseases - This refers to various diseases and ailments that are marked by the gradual wearing out of the spine. Degenerative spinal diseases are commonly seen in adults, above 40 years of age, and are usually linked with age-related wear and include conditions like spinal stenosis, disk herniation and spondylolisthesis. Obese people tend to be at a higher risk of developing such problems.
- Spinal stenosis - The condition is marked by the narrowing of the space within the backbone, which leads to an additional strain on the nerves and spinal cord, leading to their compression. The problem is most likely to affect the spinal canal in the lower back and around the neck. Spinal stenosis can be very painful and even limit the range of motion and mobility of the person.
- Lumbar decompression - It is also known as lumbar laminectomy, a procedure that is performed on patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. During the surgical intervention, the surgeon widens the spinal canal by removing a part of the lamina. This helps to create more space for the nerves and spinal cord and relieve excess pressure from them.
- Lumbar discectomy - The procedure is recommended for patients who have a disc in the lower part of the spinal column. The surgery is carried out via a minimally invasive approach, in which the doctors use detailed imaging guidance to perform the surgery via tiny, keyhole incisions.
- Spinal fusion surgery - The surgical procedure typically aims at addressing the problems concerning the smaller bones within the spinal column. As the name suggests, it involves the permanent fusion of two or more adjacent vertebrae into a single bone. This is done to reduce motion between the bones, so as to relieve back pain.
- Foraminotomy - The surgery aims at enlarging the opening where the nerve roots exit the spinal column. This is done to reduce unnecessary pressure that has been building up on the nerves due to compression. Foraminotomy is usually performed on patients with foraminal stenosis.
- Vertebroplasty - The procedure is also known as kyphoplasty, and is recommended to patients diagnosed with spinal compression fractures. The aim of the surgery is to offer stability and relieve pain and involves the administration of bone cement in the affected vertebra.
