Spine Surgery at IPSC Hospital: Minimally Invasive and Percutaneous Spine Fixation Surgery

At IPSC India, we believe in managing our chronic spinal pain patients with minimally invasive technique. But, there are conditions where we prefer to go for open spinal surgical procedures over less invasive techniques. At times, we do have patients who need urgent surgeries to prevent them from going into permanent damage. There are multiple myths about spine surgeries and decision to have spinal surgery can be difficult specially when we have multiple “free of cost advises” flouting around us. Spine fixation surgery is a type of spine surgery that uses screws, rods, and other implants to stabilize the spine. It is often used to treat conditions that cause instability of the spine, such as spondylolisthesis and fractures. Spine fixation surgery can also be used to treat conditions that cause pain and nerve compression, such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis.


Spine Surgery: Indications, Types, and Benefits

We cannot avoid working but we can modify our lifestyle to prevent and manage our back pain. More commonly seen with prolonged sittings. We just need to stretch and get out of our chair after every 30-40 min, just a min or two to avoid constant loading on spine. B. Workouts depends on the type of back disorder. Rest is not advisable for most of the back problems. Infact, in some cases, rest aggravates the spine problem specially lower back and neck pains. C. Rest is only indicated in severe conditions like sciatica, pinched nerves, severe disc bulge, spine fractures. D. Your spine doctor or spine specialist will advise you stretching or strengthening exercises depending on the type of spine pain.

Fact: At IPSC India, we advise open surgical procedures only in selected cases where it is required. After discussing other options with patients, we advise surgery where surgery has a definite advantage over other treatment options.

Fact: Most of the spine surgeries are successful but at times some patients develop secondary problems which are not directly related to surgery. Infact, the medical authorities have withdrawn this terminology.

Fact: Some surgeries where we have to put implants to fix the spine, do take long time to recovery as bones need some time to fix the implant. Restriction in some activities are required after spine fixation surgery but usually patients are able to perform routine activities within weeks’ time.

Fact: Repeat surgery is extremely rare now with advancement of other techniques. Some secondary sources of pain after spine surgery can be managed effectively with minimally invasive techniques.
