Spinal Surgeries are very safe and successful now

Middle East Health speaks to Dr. Vidyadhara S, HOD & Senior Consultant Spine Surgeon, Manipal Spine Care Centre, at Manipal Hospitals, Bangalore, India – about evolution of spinal surgeries from being very unsafe to the status of being as safe as they can be today.

Common Scoliosis Questions

What is scoliosis? Scoliosis causes the spine to curve in the wrong direction. It causes sideways curves, and those are different from the spine’s normal curves. If you were to look at your spine from the side, you’d see that it curves out at your neck (cervical spine), in at your mid-back (thoracic spine), and out again at your low back (lumbar spine). Your back is supposed to have those curves. However, if you look at your spine from behind, you shouldn’t see any curves at all. When there are sideways curves in the spine from this view, that’s scoliosis. The curves can look like an ‘S’ or a ‘C.’

Kyphoplasty: Frequently Asked Questions

When an external force is applied to the spine, such as that from a fall or carrying of a sudden heavyweight, the forces may exceed the ability of the bone within the vertebral body to support the load. This may cause the front part of the vertebral body to crush forming a wedge shape. This is known as a compression fracture. If the entire vertebral body breaks, this is considered a burst fracture.  Spinal fractures can be traumatic in normal bone, or repetitive stress-related in athletes or pathological secondary to osteoporosis (senile, post-menopausal, Calcium deficiency, or steroid/drug/immobility induced), spinal tumors (Myeloma, Metastasis etc), spinal infection etc.  Kyphoplasty is definitely not indicated in all types of spinal fractures.

Oman Scoliosis Patient Stories – Dr.Vidyadhar

Case 1: MR. AAMIR RASHID, 20-year old male from Oman presented with traumatic paraplegia following a road traffic accident in early infancy and was wheel chair bound. He had noticed spinal deformity and pelvic imbalance making it difficult for him to sit unsupported on the wheelchair. X-rays showed rigid left sided Thoracolumbar Kyphoscoliosis measuring about 143° and fixed pelvic obliquity of about 45°. He underwent posterior multi-level spinal osteotomies, instrumented scoliosis correction and fusion T2-Ilium under multi-modal neuromonitoring guidance. He was started wheel chair mobilization on the very next day of surgery and was discharged home. He was able to sit without any difficulty or support in his wheel chair and was able to move around without any assistance. His post-operative radiographs revealed that the pelvis was square and the Cobb angle had reduced to 34°. He underwent physiotherapy and rehabilitation and was planned to travel back to Oman 3 weeks after surgery.
