Spinal Fusion using Minimal Invasion
It is performed with an aim to immobilize a painful joint by joining two or more vertebrae using supplementary bone tissue either from the patient (auto graft) or donor (allograft). It is also a treatment of choice for scoliosis and kyphosis. It can be used to treat conditions arising in the lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine. It is done by a minimally invasive technique to reduce complications and reduce recovery time.
Spinal Disc Replacement
It is done to maintain the normal function of the spine. It is a type of arthroplasty in which the degenerated intervertebral discs are replaced with artificial devices. Some of the latest materials for disc such as polyethylene, titanium alloy and medical grade cobalt chromium.
Spinal Discectomy & Laminectomy using Microdecompression Method
It is mainly performed release the compressed nerve by removing a piece of the bone or disc pressing on the nerve. It is a surgical removal of herniated disc, which presses on the nerves or spinal cord. They typically present as radiculopathy and long standing leg pains. It can relieve the patient of symptoms immediately and also prevents the condition to recur.
Vertebroplasty & Kyphoplasty Performed by a Small Needle Hole
It is a treatment of choice in vertebrae fractured due to compression. This compression can occur due to osteoporosis, spinal tumors, kyphosis etc. The process involves injecting bone cement through a tiny hole with an intention to repair fractured spinal vertebrae. The goal is to stabilize and restore function and height of the spine, which can be easily achieved and helps patients attain a better quality of life.
Foraminotomy & Corpectomy using Endoscopic Techniques
It is performed to increase the size of the foramen of the spinal cordthrough which the nerves pass. The nerves can be compressed if the foramen size is reduced producing pain and limitation to movement.
It is mainly done in victims of brain injury and stroke. These conditions can lead to an increase in intracranial pressure due to damage to brain tissues and vessels. This procedure is supportive rather than therapeutic as it can complicate and cause other complications, which are debilitating and often fatal if pressure in the skull continues to rise.
Burr Hole Surgery
It is a surgically placed hole in the skull, which is done to perform or facilitate further surgery. It essentially helps in preventing further injury to the brain. It is performed with a view to monitor pressure inside the skull, remove a blood clot, remove a tumor, treat seizures, to remove a foreign object or to place a medical device such as a shunt or chemotherapy wafers.
Cranioplasty using Autografts, Metal and Non Metal Grafts
It helps in repairing defects in the cranium/skull. Some of the materials are such as bones from the same individual or grafts made of poly methyl methacrylate or made of metals.
Brachial Plexus Surgery using Microsurgery
Brachial plexus is a network of nerves, which conducts signals from the spinal cord to the shoulder, arm and hand. The injury to these plexus can occur due to shoulder trauma, tumors or inflammation. The surgery is a complex procedure and involves multiple steps for repair/reversal of injuries. The treatment includes use of orthosis/splinting.
Carotid Endarterectomy using Minimally Invasive Procedure
It is mainly done to reduce the risk of stroke by correcting or relieving stenosis and avoid brain strokes.The surgery is performed secondary to atherosclerosis to prevent the emboli from getting dislodged and blocking the blood supply to the parts of brain.
