What is a Spinal Cord
The spinal cord is a collection of nerves that travels from the bottom of the brain down your back. There are 31 pairs of nerves that leave the spinal cord and go to your arms, legs, chest and abdomen. These nerves allow your brain to give commands to your muscles and cause movements of your arms and legs.
Most of the patients who present with Spinal complaints have been bearing moderate to severe back pain for a long period and have undergone various investigations like X-Rays, CT Scan or MRI of the Spine. If the investigations reveal disc protrusion or nerve root compression then most of the times Decompression surgery needs to be done. Some of the spinal problems are so extensive that Titanium Cage, Rods and Screws have to be put to stabalize the spine. Spinal Fusion and Fixation are two of the most common procedures done for Spinal problems at GNH Hospital. The cost of Spine Surgery normally ranges from INR 150000 - 250000 and the hospital stay is 3-5 days.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Quadraplegia occurs in case of any kind of physical trauma that crushes and compresses the vertebrae in the neck. This type of spine injury can cause irreversible damage at the cervical level of the spinal cord and below. This type of spinal cord injury may even cause paralysis of most of the body including the arms and legs.
Paraplegia occurs mostly in cases of car or bike accidents. In this type of spine injury the middle back i.e. thoracic or lumbar spine gets affected and may cause paralysis of the legs.
Spinal Cord Surgery Injury Options in India
Surgery to stabilize the spine can be performed from the back of the spine, called posterior spine surgery, or from the front of the spine, called anterior spine surgery. In some cases, both approaches may be needed, usually in two separate operations.
A fusion procedure involves attaching metal screws, plates or other devices to the bones of the spine to keep them properly aligned. This is usually done when two or more of the spinal bones, also called vertebrae have been injured. Small pieces of bone may also be attached to the injured bones to help them fuse into one solid piece.
The bone used for this procedure is usually taken from another bone in the body, most often from the hip. This does not damage the hip and makes the fusion more stable. If needed, a small surgery on the hip will be performed at the same time as the spine surgery.
