MYTH: Spine Surgery is a failure.

FACT: Spine surgery has a success rate of 92-95 percent. Spine surgery should only be done when the patient's symptoms matches the MRI reports. At times, patients have symptoms related to a particular nerve but the MRI shows a disc bulge; in such situations, one must consider prolonged conservative trial instead of advising surgery only on the basis of MRI findings. Patients suffering from disc/spine related pain for the first time should always go for conservative treatment trials: medications, physiotherapy and rest for 4-6 weeks, initially.

Surgery is to be advised when…


  • Conservative trial has failed
  • The patient develops limb weakness or sensory deficit related to a particular nerve.
  • The patient develops urinary symptoms related to the disc bulge.


Advantages of KEY HOLE SURGERY:


  • Less pain
  • Short hospital stay
  • Same day mobilisation
  • Prevents spine instability
  • Prevents muscle damage


Max Super Speciality Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, has technical advances due to which spine surgery can be performed through minimally invasive techniques.

Unilateral approach for disc removal

The surgery is performed through a two-inch skin incision. Minimal bone is drilled and the disc is removed with the help of a microscope. The patient is made to walk the next day and discharged within three days.

Key Hole Disc Removal This approach involves only one-inch skin incision. Through a serial dilator tubular system, disc is removed with the help of a microscope. The skin is closed with stitches which don't require stitch removal. The patient is mobilised the same day and discharged the next day.

Spine Fixation-key hole approach

Certain spine diseases merit extensive bone removal where the spine needs to be fixed with screws and rods to prevent its instability. With advances in techniques, we at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, perform the spine fixation through 4-6 key holes, depending upon the number of screws to be placed.
