What is Spine Surgery?
Back injuries have become a problem affecting most people around the world. To treat back problems, doctors recommend spinal surgeries consisting of performing surgery to correct any possible structural abnormalities in the back. It allows surgeons to compress, move, and fix vertebral structures and replace them if required. There are several types of spine surgery, such as :
Discectomy includes removing the herniated section of the disc to access the inflamed nerve and reduce its discomfort.
To release pressure caused by stenosis, the bone that covers the vertebrae is removed and expanded.
Spinal fusion of the spine together. This can ease pain by stabilizing a fracture or getting rid of the pain that originates from the movement of the vertebrae, which can cause some vertebral discs to deteriorate or become injured.
A disc implant is an alternative to a fusion transplant, where a disc is implanted in the patient’s spine. However, it cannot be used by everyone.
When do you need
Suppose you have back and spinal pain due to the compression of a nerve, or you are experiencing spinal deformity, spine tumor, trauma, spinal infections, and degenerative spine conditions such as stenosis and herniated discs. In that case, the doctors might recommend spine surgery.
You might need spine surgery when you are under constant excruciating, unrelenting, and resistant to all forms of non-surgical treatments. Also, if you have already been treated for scoliosis and are feeling the condition is worsening, and you are experiencing pain, weakness, numbness, and back stiffness – talk to your doctor; there might be a need for spine surgery. If you have a spinal injury, there is no other way to treat them but surgery.

Doctors usually opt for two surgical methods. One is open surgery which involves a long and open surgical approach where the doctor examines and accesses the spine operational space.

At Wockhardt hospital, we prefer minimally invasive surgery for spine treatment, as it offers several benefits such as –
Minimally invasive surgery includes small incisions and less damage, which means less pain. Also, a minimally invasive surgery reduces or eliminates the chance of trauma your body takes in after an extensive surgical spine operation.
You undergo to get rid of the pain you have been experiencing for ages. Thus, a minimally invasive surgery requires less amount of recovery time than open surgery. A faster recovery means you can get back to your daily activities early.
Every surgery comes with risks, which also include minimally invasive procedures. Some of the common complications are – reactions to anesthesia and infection at the operation site.
How to Recover Fast After
After undergoing spine surgery, you must rest properly to ensure you heal quickly. Keep yourself hydrated as it helps the nutrients flow properly, assisting in joint and organ maintenance. Also, eating protein-rich and whole foods will help you heal efficiently. Foods such as beans, nuts, whole grains, seeds, fruits, veggies, chicken breast, and salmon are the best diet after surgery.
|Wear braces for a few months to ensure stabilization.||Don’t lift, bend, or twist for a few months after the surgery.|
|Eat a healthy diet.||Don’t overdo the walking.|
|Do physical therapy as it helps with postoperative pain.||Don’t forget to follow the medications and other recommendations by the doctor.|
