What is Spine Surgery?

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, also called MISS, Endoscopic Spine Surgery and Arthroscopic Spine Surgery are surgical procedures that are performed to correct spinal pathologies to relieve the patient’s pain. Uncontrollable and unmanageable neck and back pain are the biggest indicators for spinal surgery. Spine disorders usually occur due to nerve compression. In spine surgery, the surgeon relieves this pressure by correcting the structural abnormalities in the spine. Postural abnormalities and trauma are the biggest contributors to these structural abnormalities.

At Pristyn Care, you can consult the best orthopedic surgeons in Vijayawada to seek treatment for all kinds of spinal disorders for successful relief from neck and back pain.

Treatment

Diagnosis of Spinal Abnormalities

Spinal abnormalities mostly involve abnormal interactions between the soft and hard tissue components of the spine. Normally, the spine is structurally balanced for maximum flexibility and support. However, if the spinal curvature is disturbed, it causes spinal pain. This is called sagittal imbalance. The best way to diagnose spinal deformities is via the following imaging techniques:

  • X-ray: X-rays can help study the structural anatomy of the hard tissues of the spine to diagnose spine dislocation, kyphosis, scoliosis, bone spurs, disc space narrowing, vertebral body fracture, spinal collapse or erosion.
  • Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging: MRIs help diagnose aberrations of the soft tissue components of the spine, such as the spinal cord and nerves.
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan: CT scans provide a detailed view of both hard and soft tissues of the spine to diagnose abnormalities of the vertebrae, spinal cord, spinal nerves, and other soft and hard tissues.

Treatment for Spinal Abnormalities

The biggest indicator for spinal deformities is chronic back and neck pain. Therefore, the first course of treatment in the initial stages of the condition is medical management with physiotherapy. The patient can try a variety of anti-inflammatories, corticosteroids and other pain medications to reduce the pain before starting physical therapy for correction of the spinal deformity.

Spine surgery becomes necessary if the above non-surgical management fails to provide pain relief to the patient. The main goal behind the surgery is to stabilize the spine and relieve pressure on the compressed nerves. MISS includes a variety of surgical techniques such as:

  • Spinal laminectomy/ spinal decompression: It is generally performed for spinal stenosis patients. The surgeon removes bony spurs or walls compressing the spinal column to relieve the nerve pressure.
  • Vertebroplasty/Kyphoplasty: Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are performed to fix compression fractures due to osteoporosis. The surgeon injects a glue-like bone cement that hardens and strengthens the vertebrae.
  • Discectomy (or Microdiscectomy): It is a slipped disc surgery that is performed to remove a herniated disc compressing the nerve root and spinal cord. It is often performed in conjunction with laminectomy.
  • Foraminotomy: This is performed to widen the spinal column where the nerve root exits the spinal canal in case it has narrowed due to aging.
  • Nucleoplasty, also called plasma disk decompression: It is a minimally invasive laser surgery in which the surgeon uses a plasma laser device to reduce the disk size and treat mild disk hernia.
  • Spinal fusion: The surgeon removes the spinal disc and fuses the adjacent vertebrae together using bone grafts or metal implants to allow the fusion of vertebrae together via the bone grafts, for example, ACDF surgery (Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion), TLIF surgery (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion).
  • Artificial disk replacement: For people with severely damaged vertebral discs, the surgeon removes the disc and replaces it with a synthetic implant to help restore vertebral height and movement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I still need pain management after spine surgery?

After spine surgery, you will start feeling relief from the pain within 3-4 weeks after the surgery. The nerve pain is reduced immediately after the surgery, but postoperative pain diminishes slowly as the incision heals. This recovery period is much shorter in minimally invasive surgeries than open spine surgeries.

How long will I need to recover from spine surgery?

Even after spine surgery, you will need pain management and physiotherapy to ensure long-lasting pain relief from the surgery. For minimally invasive spine surgeries, the recovery time is about 6 weeks, while for open surgeries, it is about 3-4 months.

How soon after spine surgery can I return to my daily activities?

For minimally invasive spine surgery, you can resume your normal activities within 6-8 weeks, including bending, lifting and twisting movements. However, some spine surgeries like fusion procedures may take much longer depending on the location and severity of the condition.

Can I stop wearing a back brace after spine surgery?

No. You will have to wear a back brace for a little while after surgery, depending on the nature of the surgery and the patient’s condition. For laminectomy and discectomy procedures, you can stop wearing a brace two weeks after the surgery, while you might have to wear a brace for up to 3 months after fusion surgery.

For how long shall I need physiotherapy after spine surgery?

Rehabilitation and physiotherapy for recovery after spine surgery begins right after you are discharged from the hospital. Your rehabilitation period may last 4-6 weeks or even longer, depending on the severity of the condition and the nature of the surgery performed.

Is spine surgery covered under insurance?

Yes, spine surgery is covered under insurance. However, the extent of the coverage depends on each policy individually. If you want to know more about the terms of your policy, you can connect with our insurance team, who will help you understand and file the insurance claim.

You should consider a spine surgery if:

Pristyn Care has a team of the best spine surgery specialists in Vijayawada who are expert and experienced in performing all kinds of spine surgeries to provide you with long-lasting pain relief.

  • You can not move due to unmanageable back pain.
  • Your slip disk is not getting better through physiotherapy.
  • You have arthritic bone spurs in your spine compressing your spinal cord.
  • You are experiencing numbness in your limbs due to nerve or spinal cord compression.
  • You are experiencing bladder or bowel incontinence due to spinal nerve compression.
  • You have a broken or dislocated bone in the back.
  • You have a spinal tumor.
What are the most common spinal disorders?

Some of the most common spinal cord disorders are:-

  • Herniated or ruptured discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Vertebral fractures
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal tumors
Can children develop spine problems?

In rare cases, even children can develop spine disorders. Spinal disorders in children can be both prenatal and postnatal. Some spine problems are present at birth, but as the baby grows, they become more apparent, like congenital scoliosis, while some are diagnosed in a prenatal ultrasound itself, like osteoporosis. In severe cases, the baby might even need scoliosis surgery immediately.

Are there any long-term complications of minimally invasive spine surgery?

As we perform only minimally invasive spine surgeries, they are inherently very safe. However, as they are major surgeries, there are some complications associated with them. Spinal fusion surgery and laminectomy are among the most commonly performed MISS surgeries.

Some complications often associated with spine fusion surgeries are:

  • Non-union of the spinal bones that were fused together
  • Implants breaking due to excessive forces on the spine
  • Spinal instability and pain due to implant screws loosening
  • Injury and degeneration to the facet joints
  • Spinal muscle injury

Complications associated with laminectomy are:

  • Injury with scar tissue formation in the dura or nerve roots. This can even lead to weakness, loss of sensation, paralysis, and/or bowel/bladder incontinence based on the severity of the injury.
  • Spine instability
  • Degeneration of the adjacent spines
  • Failure to eliminate pain
