EDUCATIONAL DETAILS


Lumbar (Back) Procedures:


  • Minimally invasive lumbar discectomy (microdiscectomy)
  • The most common cause of sciatica is a bulge on one of the discs in your spine that presses on a nerve in your lower back. If the pain does not settle, your surgeon can remove the bulge.

  • Minimally invasive lumbar decompression (microdecompression)


  • Spinal stenosis causes pain or weakness in your legs. If your symptoms are severe, a spinal decompression operation should relieve your symptoms and help you to return to normal activities.

  • Lumbar laminectomy
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis is where the spinal canal narrows in your lower back. This may cause pain or weakness in your legs. The aim of surgery is to prevent your symptoms from getting worse.

Cervical (Neck) Procedures:

  • Cervical Foraminotomy
  • This is a minimally invasive procedure that relieves nerve root compression by widening the intervertebral foramen, the space through which the spinal nerve exits the spinal column.

  • Cervical Laminoplasty
  • Cervical laminoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes pressure from the spinal cord by creating more space in the spinal canal.

  • Endoscopic discectomy
  • Endoscopic discectomy is a procedure that invlolves removal of herniated and nerve hurting disc by minimal most injury to the normal anatomic structures enabling very fast recovery and normalising to day to day activities.

  • Endoscopic degenerative disease decompression
  • This is the newest advance in the field of surgery minimizing the incision and damage to the normal anatomic structures, minimizing the risk that elderly people hold .
