---- Overview ----

What is Spine Surgery?

Spine surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is performed to relieve a person from back pain because of any spinal problems diagnosed after evaluation by your orthopedician. Spine surgery is also called as Endoscopic Spine Surgery (ESS), Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS), and Arthroscopic Spine Surgery or discectomy or laminentomy(if disc bulge is the cause of back pain ). Post operative pain and recovery duration is lesser compared to traditional open spine surgery.

When is spine surgery (DISCECTOMY) required?

The following are the reasons for which an orthopedic surgeon may recommend spine surgery -

  • Degenerative disc diseases like spinal arthritis, spinal stenosis (Old age)
  • Herniated disc(Disc bulge) /slip disc/disc prolapse with associated complications like sciatica – pain radiating to buttocks , lower limbs and interfering with daily activities
  • Spinal instability
  • Bone spurs and tumors
  • Scoliosis (LONG TERM)
  • No improvement in the patient’s pain with conservative management like physiotherapy, steroid injections for over 6-12 weeks
  • Cauda equina syndrome – nerve roots at the end of spine are compressed

How to diagnosis the cause of back pain ?

The doctor conducts a physical examination of the spine to assess the ascertain the causes of back pain and after the physical examination is done, some diagnostic tests are also recommended to get a clear image of the spinal abnormality. The following are diagnostic and supportive tests that are recommended-

  • X-ray spine
  • Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging spine
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Blood tests

What can you expect during endoscopic spine surgery?

Endoscopic spine surgery is advanced, minimally invasive spine surgery designed to provide best results with faster recovery time and less pain compared to any traditional spine surgery methods.

Almost all kinds of endoscopic spine surgeries(ESS) are performed using general anesthesia.. During endoscopic spine surgery, small incision is a made of approximately ¼ inch and using a spinal needle, a a guide wire is inserted through it. A metal dilator and a cannula are guided to the reach the spinal disc. The doctor removes the wire and the dilator once the surgical access to the disc is established. The doctor then targets and resects the bone spurs and the herniated disc with precision and with micro-instruments are used to decompress the affected spinal nerves.

After the surgery (Discectomy with or without laminenctomy), the surgeon injects a steroid in the spinal space to relieve the patient of post-operative pain. Post surgery, the patient is moved to the recovery area and monitored for a day.


Benefits of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS-DISCECTOMY)-

  • Intra operative less blood loss
  • Reduced skin infections as it is minimally invasive
  • Reduced risk of muscle damage since no cutting of muscle is involved in the procedure
  • Reduced postoperative pain
  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
What to do during recovery after spine surgery?
  • Take good care of the spine - Avoid twisting, lifting weights, and bending.
  • Eat diet rich in fruits and vegetables
  • Care of surgical site infections
  • Medicines for pain management
  • Wear a post - operative brace(for neck surgeries) if the surgeon prescribes one

Spine Surgery

Low back pain can result from many different injuries, conditions or diseases — most often, an injury to muscles or tendons in the back.Pain can range from mild to severe. In some cases, pain can make it difficult or impossible to walk, sleep, work or do everyday activities.

You can’t prevent lower back pain that results from disease or structural problems in the spine. But you can avoid injuries that cause back pain.

Lower back pain usually gets better with rest, ice and over-the-counter pain relievers. After a few days of rest, you can start to get back to your normal activities. Staying active increases blood flow to the area and helps you heal.Other treatments for persistant lower back pain depends on your surgeon after examining your spine and back .(medications/physiotherapy/surgery).

Minimally invasive spine surgery offers several advantages over open surgery, including:

  • Less blood loss during surgery.
  • Less muscle and soft tissue damage.
  • Reduced risk of infection.
  • Less pain after surgery.
  • Shorter hospital stay (a few days vs about a week).
  • Quicker return to daily activities, including work.
