Sedentary lifestyle is giving rise to spinal problems among the people specially in the developing countries like India. The simplest of the spinal problems arise due to bad posture and lack of physical activity. In such cases the nerves coming from the brain and going into the legs which run close to the spinal column start getting compressed. The surgeon has to decompress the nerves which solves the problem. In come cases the disc which is the soft material between the bony vertebrae comes out and starts compressing the nerves. In some cases a tumour is formed in the spine which has to be removed through surgery. In some cases the spinal column gets deformed resulting in instability which requires implants in the form of rods and screws to stabalize the spine.
Surgery to stabilize the spine can be performed from the back of the spine, called posterior spine surgery, or from the front of the spine, called anterior spine surgery. In some cases, both approaches may be needed, usually in two separate operations. We adopt a conservative approach to spinal problems rather than rushing into the surgery as most of the spinal issues can be resolved by physical therapy.
Sometimes when you jerk your back the disc which is the soft cushion between your vertebrae slips out of place and starts protruding outside. This puts pressure on the nerves and causes pain. In a discectomy, the surgeon removes all or part of the disc which is protruding outside the vertebrae. This removes the pressure on the nerve and relieves pain.
In Disc Replacement Surgery, the surgeon removes the damaged spinal disc and inserts an artificial one between your vertebrae. After disc replacement surgery patient can bend or move their spine. Recovery time in disc replacement surgery is usually shorter than the recovery time in a spinal fusion surgery.
A fusion or fixatation procedure involves attaching metal screws, plates or other devices to the bones of the spine to keep them properly aligned. This is usually done when two or more of the spinal bones, also called vertebrae have been injured or deformed. This type of surgery would restrict some movements of the body like bending and twisting. This type of surgery is normally the last choice for surgeon when no other method is found to be suitable for providing stability and relieving pain.
Healthcare Costs in India are already lower as compared to other western countries. Different Hospitals at different times keep coming with special offers on specific surgical treatments. Our team is always on top of these and keep evaluating the different hospitals and the treatments offered by them. We will choose the best combination of doctor, hospital and cost for your treatment once we receive your query. The Cost of spine surgery varies from USD 4000 - 8000. For query please contact or whatsapp at +91-8800188335 or email to email@example.com
The cost of spinal surgery depends on the type of surgery that needs to be done. For a simple nerve decompression surgery the cost would be USD 3500 - 4000 while the cost would be in the range of USD 6000 - 10000 in cases of spinal instrumentation surgery. The cost depends on the type of implant used. These implants would have a cage to encompass the spinal column supported by rods and screws which increases the cost of the surgery as the length of the rods and the number of screws increase. However exact cost can be determined after examining the patient and seeing the MRI images.
