In today’s time both neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons can specialize in spine surgery which earlier was only restricted to neurologists. However, at H&H we have done in-depth doctor research and have associated with some of the finest Spine Surgeons in India. Our associated spine surgeons only focus on spine surgeries and have gained expertise in various complex Spine Surgeries. Our doctors have also been forerunners in their respective field and are also visiting faculty at some of the top spine surgery institutes of the world. Apart from the aforementioned, they are also responsible to development and introduction of the latest technique in Spine Surgery in India and abroad.
We have some of the best centers of spine surgeries in India where our diligent team takes care of every need of the patient from beginning to recovery.
Some of the prominent surgeries performed at our centers are :
Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion is a treatment for fusing the posterior and anterior columns of the spine through a posterior approach. While in posterior lumbar interbody fusion, the vertebrate is fused together by inserting a bone graft in to the disc space. In this method, the spine is approached via lower back.
Laminectomy is mainly done and to provide more room to the spinal nerveswhen the spinal nerves are compressed due to the movement of the spinal vertebra. In this procedure, a portion of the vertebral bone is removed. The portion is known as lamina which makes up the vertebra in spine. There is no pain in the surgery and can be done via spinal fusion, foraminotomy or diskectomy. This usually cures spinal stenosis and in this procedure.
In order to change alignment of a bone, it is either cut or shortened through a surgical procedure. This procedure is known as osteotomy and can be performed to cure hallux valgus or even to straighten a bone that healed wrongly following a fracture.Although, joint replacement is the option for older patients, this may be done to relieve the pain in arthritis.
In order to treat painful compression fractures in spine, Khypoplasty is performed. It is also done to stabilize the bone or restore some or all the vertebral body height lost due to the compression fracture. This surgery is sometimes also advised in case of cancer or injury that caused broken bones.
Vertebroplastyis generally done to ease the pain from a spinal fracture along with stabilizing it. The common cause behind compression fractures is said to be osteoporosis or the thinning of bones. This surgery is done if severe pain continues for around 2 months and no medicine is found effective.
Disc Nucleoplasty as a treatment is given to those patients who have contained or mildly herniated discs. This is a relatively new procedure and no incisions are required to carry out disc nucleoplasty. This is very significant as without the incision, trauma is minimal and recovery is the fastest.

X ray and MRI scans are done and assessed prior to the surgery. The patient is then counseled, in terms of the outcome of the surgery, the success ratio etc. Post all the aforementioned is complete, a clearance from the Anesthetist is taken. Based on that, all other tests that are required for the surgery are determined and performed. The patients are advised to stop smoking at least 3-5 days prior to the surgery. In case the patient is also suffering from any other disease, the clearance is sought from that particular department. For instance, in case of any previous heart ailments, clearance is sought from a cardiologist. The cardiologist may opt to perform a few tests to check the current fitness of the heart before giving his consent for the surgery.
Post the surgery the patient may be kept in the Spine Surgery ICU for a couple of hours to a day before being shifted back to the room. In most of the spine surgeries the patient is made to walk the very next day of the surgery and may be discharged in 4-5 days. However driving, drinking, smoking and all such activities are prohibited for a few days. Prior to discharge the patients are also counseled and instructed on the exercises / physiotherapy which should be done religiously for faster healing. Regular follow-up schedule is given to the patients, which they must obey. Recovery is easy and rather quick, but may delay if the patients have any certain conditions.
