Spinal Fusion Surgery in Coimbatore

What is Spinal Fusion?

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure that permanently unites two or more vertebrae in your spine to increase stability, repair a deformity, or relieve discomfort. It unites certain bones in the neck (cervical spine) and also protects nerves, ligaments, and muscles from being stretched. Dr.Muthus Hospitals provides spinal fusion surgery in Coimbatore with highly skilled and experienced doctors.

Other complications

If you suffer leg or arm discomfort in addition to back pain, your surgeon may recommend a decompression procedure (laminectomy). This treatment entails the removal of bone and diseased tissues that are placing pressure on the spinal nerves.

Fusion will reduce spinal flexibility, however, most spinal fusions involve relatively minor parts of the spine and do not significantly impede mobility. The vast majority of patients will not experience a reduction in range of motion. Your surgeon will discuss the process of Cervical Fusion Surgery in Coimbatore with you if your specific treatment may affect your spine’s flexibility or range of motion.

Bone can be extracted from other parts of your body or received from a bone bank (a bone graft). The bone is utilized to connect neighbouring vertebrae by forming a bridge (adjacent). This bone transplant promotes the formation of new bone. It is also possible to employ man-made (artificial) fusion materials. Metal implants can be used to keep the vertebrae together until new bone forms between them:

  • Metal plates that are screwed into the bone can be used to connect neighbouring vertebrae.

  • The spine can be fused when an entire vertebra is removed.

  • The surrounding vertebrae can be joined when a spinal disc is removed.

  • An incision on the front (anterior) or rear (posterior) of the neck might be used for this surgery.

  • Inability to stand straight without having pain or muscle spasms in the lower back

Sciatic Pain

What is sciatic pain or sciatica?

Sciatic pain or sciatica is the pain that occurs because a nerve coming from the spinal cord is pressed on (trapped) by a prolapsed disc, or is irritated by the inflammation caused by the prolapsed disc. Although the problem is in the back, you feel pain along the course of the nerve in addition to back pain. Therefore, you may feel pain down a leg to the calf or foot. Sciatic pain can range from mild to severe, but it is often worse than the back pain. With a prolapsed disc, the sciatic nerve is the most commonly affected nerve. The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that is made up from several smaller nerves that come out from the spinal cord in the lower back. It travels deep inside the buttock and down the back of the leg. There is a sciatic nerve for each leg.

Treatment of back pain and sciatic pain

Spinal Injections: Injections like the Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar Interlaminar Epidural Injections and Transforaminal injection are injections into the opening at the side of the spine where a nerve roots exits. These injections reduce the inflammation and swelling of spinal nerve roots and other tissues surrounding the spinal nerve root and reduces pain, tingling and numbness and other symptoms caused by such inflammation, irritation or swelling.

Spinal cord stimulation: Spinal cord stimulation is a procedure that delivers low-level electrical signals to the spinal cord or to specific nerves to block pain signals from reaching the brain. Spinal cord stimulation is recommended when other treatments have not been successful, when surgery is not likely to help, or when surgery has failed.

Radiofrequency Ablation: Radiofrequency ablation (or RFA) is a procedure used to reduce pain. An electrical current produced by a radio wave is used to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area. RFA can be used to help patients with chronic (long-lasting) low-back pain. RFA has proven to be a safe and effective way to treat some forms of pain. It also is generally well-tolerated, with very few associated complications.

Ozone Discectomy (Ozonucleolysis): Injection of Ozone-Oxygen mixture into the disc is a new alternative method of treating patients suffering from back and leg pain (sciatica) caused by disc prolapse. Large number of international studies confirms the efficacy of this treatment and superiority of this treatment over conventional disc surgery.

Surgery: Having back surgery can be a difficult choice. Typically, people consider surgery for back pain only after all other treatments have failed to provide relief. Even then, surgery does not provide significant improvement for everyone. And while the risks of back surgery are generally low, they can be serious in some people.
