After completing all these necessary training, they start giving treatments or surgeries to their patients.

Moreover, there are many bone joints in the body, such as knees, wrists, elbows, necks, and ankles but the structure of spinal bone is pretty complicated. That is why it requires proper skills in order to provide positive results from spine surgery.

However, a neurosurgeon spends all their time attaining knowledge about neurological issues and the functioning of the brain. And they also get training for the best brain care and surgeries.

Dismissing Common Myths And Misconceptions About Spinal Surgery

It is not easy for many people to face spinal surgery. In fact, it can be very scary too. And to top it off, there are just so many myths related to Spine Surgery in Punjab that it makes an already nervous patient more anxious about the whole procedure.

Do not cloud your judgment because of somebody else’s lenses. Instead, make the best decision for your health. Our doctor here performs minimally invasive surgery and only uses it as a last resort if other non-surgical non-invasive methods fail to alleviate pain.

In fact, if the surgical procedure becomes a necessary treatment, our team encourages our patients to gather all kinds of information before the treatment and dismiss any myths surrounding it.

Some Common Myths About Spine Surgery

These are some of the most common myths about spine surgery that we are going to eliminate.

Myth #1: You require months-long recovery in bed

If we talk about the traditional open spinal surgery, which requires a long invasive cut in the back for the procedure, which also generates high risk. Then you might need bed recovery for months. However, our doctors are committed to treating patients with the least invasive method. This means less invasive with the least bleeding and minimal scarring.

This eliminates the months-long bed recovery period for the patient. When the doctor performs a small incision for the surgery in an Ortho centre in Ludhiana, then the patient requires a shorter period of rest time as compared to the traditional process. In fact, some patients get discharged from the hospital the very same day.

Myth #2: Spinal surgery will cause you more pain

Unfortunately, there have been instances wherein the patient has complained of continued pain even after the spinal surgery. But these cases are the exception, not common. The patient who has experienced such negative surgery will be more vocal and drown out the voice of other patients, which is why you might have heard them louder.

The reason behind noticing pain after surgery can be because of receiving the wrong treatment or if the surgery was not necessary in the first place. This is why it is essential that you carefully select your spinal doctor or surgeon with proper qualifications and adequate experience for appropriate treatment. When the doctor performs the surgery carefully, it can easily alleviate spinal pain.

Myth #3: Most people require another surgery post spinal surgery

If the patient selects the right spine doctor, gets the right diagnosis, and receives the right treatment, then it is very unlikely they will have to undergo another spinal surgery. Our doctors are committed to conducting one of the best surgical treatments for their patients to increase the success rate and improve their health.

They determine the real cause of the problem for their chronic leg, neck, or back pain. And based on the diagnosis of the problem, the doctor and the staff member will perform the most appropriate procedures unless and until it is absolutely necessary.

I hope we have helped you debunk some common myths about spinal surgery and created a better understanding of it.

Are You Considering Spine Surgery? 5-Minutes Read To Learn More

After receiving the news that you might have to undergo spinal surgery, there are tons of emotions that one person goes through, from the hope that finally, they would not have to feel the constant pain and discomfort to the fear about what would happen before, during or after the surgery. In short, they would be very confused about what to do next.

However, before you make the decision to undergo the Spine Surgery in Punjab, it is necessary that you take steps to empower yourself by learning everything that you should know about the related condition and your treatment option, and your Ortho surgeon in Ludhiana.

Know The Cause Of The Pain

Identifying the reason for your pain is not somewhat equivalent to finding out what actually is anatomically wrong with your back.

Let us take an example to simplify it.

You might be suffering from a herniated disc that the doctor can notice in an MRI scan. But in case that is not the exact cause of your pain, then you might not find relief from the pain after your surgery for a herniated disc.

Hence, it is vital for you and your doctor to articulate the precise pain generator before they begin the surgery. For that, you must select a reputable surgeon and hospital in order to diagnose the real problem and treat them accordingly.

According to many practitioners in the Orthopaedic Hospital in Ludhiana, the number one reason for the failed back surgery syndrome, which is basically a continuation of pain after the surgery, is an improper diagnosis prior to surgery.

Go Get Yourself The Best Spine Surgeon

The best way to select the best spine surgeon is to get a referral from your current physician. They would refer you to one or more good spine surgeons who might help you cure your spinal issues. And a physician is the right place to look for such specialists as they have better contact compared to others. But it does not mean you will blindly believe what they refer to. You can, for the sake of better options, ask around about the clinic or call them for a better assessment.

You can ask the referred spine surgeon about their qualifications and experiences to evaluate their skills based on how many successful surgeries they have conducted over time.

You Need To Be Well-Prepared For Your Medical Consultation

It is natural not to articulate your pain and suffering to the doctor while you live those moments. Many times the patient is unable to complete their symptoms in a concise and accurate manner. To top it off, it can be overwhelming to meet your spine surgeon, especially for the first time. This is why you must research beforehand to get a better perception of your issues. And also, be ready to describe your medical history.

Final Comments

Hunjan Hospital works on providing the best to its patients. We believe in quality service in a friendly environment.

Spine Surgery: Everything you need to know about spine surgical procedure

Introduction

If you are struggling with back pain, then you might be thinking spine surgery is the only choice. Sometimes, surgery is the preferred choice. It is important to understand that back problems can also be treated with non-surgical treatment/conservative therapy. Let’s go through the spine surgery guide to make you understand about the different treatment options.

How computer-assisted technology is beneficial for back pain?

Through computer-assisted image technology, the surgeon can look at the operative site with ease, which is not possible with traditional visualization methods. Back pain is likely to trigger when the body mechanics are not proper, the spine has undergone a structural abnormality or injury. To treat chronic back pain, you must consult medical professionals right away. The doctor will inform you about everything on what type of lifestyle you need to live and what kind of physical activity which you need to do.

Non-surgical conservative treatment

Some of the non-operative treatment options suggested by the medical expert are:

    • Pain medications
    • Physical Therapy
    • Anti-inflammatory medications
    • Bracing (should not be done before the surgery)

Generally, conservative treatment is suggested to the person for 6 weeks to 6 months. In case, non-conservative treatment did not help the patients then spine surgery is suggested.

Difference: Open Surgery Vs Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Open Surgery Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
    • Traditional spine surgery is known as open surgery
    • Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS) is a modern approach.
    • During surgery, a long incision is made on the surgical site to look at the spinal anatomy.
    • During the surgery, the incision is a few inches long. Even through this spine anatomy is checked carefully.
    • Under this approach, muscles might get manipulated and the surrounding tissues. Post-operative complications are higher.
    • Under this approach, the surrounding muscles are not manipulated and chances of complications are also less.
    • Hospital stay is longer with a traditional approach and recovery takes time.
    • Hospital stay is less with modern approach and recovery takes less time.

How imaging is helpful during spine surgery?

    • With the help of computer-assisted images, the surgeon can have a better view of the surgical site, which is not possible with traditional methods.
    • There is a greater degree of accuracy with modern surgical methods as compared to conventional methods.
    • The surgeon will make use of intraoperative fluoroscopy and preoperative computed tomography which increases the safety and makes the result precise.

What are the surgical methods?

Be it MISS or open surgery, the doctor can access the spine from different directions. In medical terms, these are known as surgical methods which include the following:

    • Anterior approach

With the anterior approach, the surgeon accesses the front part of the body from the abdominal area.

    • Posterior approach

With the posterior approach, the incision is made on the back.

    • Lateral approach

With the lateral approach, the spine area is reached from the side.

What are the common spine surgical methods?

Different conditions can increase the risk of spine surgery and some of the common procedures included with it are:

    • Discectomy or Microdiscectomy

With this approach, removal of a herniated intervertebral disc. Under this approach, pressure is taken from the compressed nerve. It is referred to as the MISS procedure.

    • Laminectomy

With laminectomy, the thin bony plate from the back is removed and space is increased in the spinal canal. This way the pressure is relieved.

    • Laminotomy

With laminotomy, the vertebral arch is removed which covers the spinal cord. Under this approach, the bone portion is removed less as compared to laminotomy.

Be it, laminectomy and laminotomy the tissue which compresses the spinal nerve is removed by the surgeon.

    • Foraminotomy

Tissue or bone removal comes in the way where the root comes off from the spinal cord and then reaches the spinal column.

    • Disc replacement

It is another option that is used instead of fusion and then an artificial one is kept in its place.

    • Spinal fusion

Surgical procedure which connects the vertebrae. Under this, the bone grafts are used which might have or not have instrumentation. Bone grafts are available in different types like donor’s bone or your bone is used. Fusion is done by the surgeon through the following methods:

    • Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion
    • Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion
    • Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion indicates a surgical approach through the foramen.
    • Lateral Interbody Fusion in which the minimally invasive approach is from the side of the body.
