Spine Centre

“The Spine an important bone structure in the body”

…..The spine is one of the most important structures in our body, as it acts as the first barrier protecting the spinal cord. The spinal cord is a column of nerves that connects the brain with the rest of our bodies and allows us to control our movements; therefore, if the spinal cord is distressed in any way, it can cause pain and lead to disability.

…..Disc fractures and lumbar spine stenosis are the most common spinal disorders and can cause nerve compression or nerve irritation that can lead to lower back pain and pain around the posterior hip or leg, causing numbness and weakness in the leg muscles.

…..Patients who experience spinal discomfort or disorders should seek diagnosis and treatment from specialists in the field of spine treatment. Those patients can get treated with medical therapy and rehabilitation and/or spinal operations using new, innovative technology, and appropriate continuous treatment.

Latest technology in spinal treatment  Minimal Access Spine Surgery (MASS)

Minimal Access Spine Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that consists of making 1.6-2.0 cm incisions in the back, through which the surgeon inserts a small tube to the spine. This specialized equipment, used in combination with an endoscope, makes the operation very precise and effective. Patients appreciate this innovative treatment technology because of its small wounds, low risk of infection, reduced bleeding, and minimal pain and disability, which leads to faster recovery and return to normal activities.

.

Total Artificial Disc Replacement (TADR)

Total artificial disc replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces degenerative discs of the lumbar or cervical spine with artificial discs that are designed to imitate the functions of a natural disc and allow as normal as possible motion after surgery.

.

Percutaneous Vertebroplasty / Kyphoplasty:

Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that is designed to relieve the pain of compression fractures associated with osteoporosis or spinal tumors. Bone cement is injected into the fractured spine to relieve pain and strengthen vertebral bodies. Both Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty are performed under local or general anesthesia, which offers speedy and long-term relief from osteoporosis-related back pain.
