Spine Care Hospital in Gurgaon

Do you feel pressure crushing you down when sitting for long hours in a chair? Or does bending down to pick up your child hurt your back? These all could be related to Back Pain. Back pain is a sensation of sharp pain or pressure around the middle or lower back. Sometimes it may be accompanied by buttock or leg pain.

Back pains and neck problems are a common sight these days, owing to long working hours, and poor posture at work and home. Stress could also play a major role in triggering pain in the back. We have glued to our screens for work and leisure alike, and more often than not, fail to maintain a healthy body posture. 

Prolonged back pain treatment doesn't always require spinal surgery. A good spine doctor would usually recommend a non-operative treatment for the back after a proper examination that may include short-term medication and physiotherapy, exercises. Minor symptoms of back and spine such as lower and upper back pain can be corrected with posture correction and pain management therapies. It is only when your doctor finds a major complication in your spine that they may suggest surgery. The spine surgery cost would depend on the severity of the infection and the need for precision in the procedure. Spine surgery costs in Gurgaon will be reasonable. Visit the best spine care hospital in Gurgaon to get the finest treatment.

The changing ways of Spine Surgery

Spinal surgery is a complex procedure that requires medical precision. The spinal column houses the spinal cord which acts as a bridge between all the nerve connections of the body to the brain. Traditional spine surgery involves an incision along the spine through which the surgeon reaches the site of infection or deformity and performs the procedure. Once the procedure is done, metallic screws and plates may be put in place to replace the removed bones. While this has been an effective way of treatment, the technique has been succeeded by new technological reforms in medical science. Some of the latest reforms in Spine surgery are the support of precision diagnostic tools and techniques for diagnostics which may include:

  • Precision Diagnostics tools.

  • MRI

  • CT-Scan

  • Endoscopy-guided surgery.

  • Robotics

Minimally invasive spine surgery or minimally invasive surgical procedures are now available for precision surgery. In a minimally invasive procedure, the doctor uses an endoscopic camera to guide his way around the site of surgery. Precision tools are used to ensure the smallest possible cut or incision. These may be used with or without the assistance of robotics devices to ensure high-precision surgery with minimized incision and blood loss. 

Benefits of New Technologies in Spinal Surgery

With new emerging technologies in spinal surgery, patients have newer benefits to their advantage compared to traditional spine surgery. Some of the benefits are listed below:

  • Lesser Healing Time.
