SPINE SURGERY :

Men and women of all age groups suffer at some point in life with back and spine problems. It can be back pain for a long period of time or an injury in back or spine. In most cases where problem is not so severe, non-surgical treatments are preferred choice to cure spine issues, whereas severe and prolonged back pain and spine injury need surgical intervention.

Factors which usually affect spine are as follows :

  • Aging
  • Improper posture
  • Structural abnormalities
  • Numbness and pain in legs
  • Chronic back pain

Non-surgical Treatments:

Non emergency spine cases are managed by pain management, anti inflammatory medications and physiotherapy etc.. Conservative management can be tried for a initial period of 6 weeks to 6 months and if not benefited, patients are recommended for surgical options.

Surgical Treatment :
