Neuro Spine Surgery:
Neurosurgery is primarily concerned with diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disorders that affect any part of the nervous system. The nervous system includes of brain, peripheral nerves, spinal cord and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system.
Types of Neuro and Spine Surgeries
- Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors
- Complex Spine Surgery
- Minimally Invasive Neck and Back Surgery
- Gamma Knife
- Artificial Disc
- Skull-based and Pituitary Tumors
- Stereotactic Radiosurgery
- Pain Management
- Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)
- Spinal Decompression Rehabilitation Therapy (IDD)
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
- Cerebral Vascular Brain Disorders
Conditions Treated by Neuro Spine Surgery
Many spinal conditions can be treated that include injuries, degeneration and diseases:
- Brain and Spine Tumors
- Degenerative disc disease
- Lumbar spinal stenosis
- Cervical spinal disc disease
- Neck pain
- Herniated pain
- Lumbar spinal stenosis
- Lower back pain
- Spinal Cord Injury
Laser Spine Surgery
Laser spine surgery is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure that does not require any cutting of the muscles and bones. The recovery is also quick in this procedure unlike conventional spine surgery. An endoscope is used for directing a laser beam at the affected area. The laser is passed through the small incision made which is in the back or neck. This is known as the best proven procedure for spine related problems.
Cervical Spine Surgery
Cervical spine surgery is performed for eliminating tingling, weakness, pain and numbness caused in the spine. The surgery also prevents the abnormal motion in the spine and also restores nerve function. The surgery is performed for a number of cervical spine problems.
Total Disc Replacement
Total disc replacement surgery, also referred to as artificial disc, is a new innovation in spine surgery. The degeneration of the spinal structures result in neck or back pain thereby decreasing the quality of life. The surgical procedure is done for removing pain and also preserves the natural motion.
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Surgery
The enlargement of the spinal canal is done through this surgery that eases pressure on the nerve. This surgery is performed for relieving the pressure on the nerve roots or the spinal cord. Weakness in the legs, numbness and pain are reduced by performing this surgery. Decompressive laminectomy is the major type of lumbar spinal stenosis surgery.
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
Carpel tunnel is the little space in the wrist from where many tendons and median nerve runs from the forearm of the hand. Carpel tunnel syndrome results in tingling, pain and different problems of the hand due to pressure caused on the median nerve in the wrist. The function of the median nerve is to control the feeling and movement of thumb and first three fingers except little finger.
Gamma Knife therapy is considered as the best proven and precise treatment for brain disorders. This therapy does not involve any kind of surgery and the therapy involves 201 precise beams of radiation directly on the tumor. The beams are more powerful when they work together on a single point. This therapy destroys the cancer cells and also stops them from multiplying. The tumor disappears after some time.
