Our Spine Service specialises in precision-oriented diagnosis for individuals with various spinal conditions.
We provide both surgical and non-surgical services for a host of spinal deformities. These include:
Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal that puts pressure on the spinal cord, which is filled with nerves. This causes you to feel pain, numb or weak in your legs, back, neck, arms or all of the previously mentioned body parts. This condition is common among people aged above 50-years-old. It can also occur in younger people who have spinal injuries or are born with a narrow spinal canal.
When should you opt for it?
Laminectomy can relieve pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots. It can also be used to treat spinal injuries, herniated disks (commonly known as slipped disks) and spinal tumours. The procedure involves invasive surgery on your back that removes some bones and/or tissue that that are/is causing compression to the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots. As with any surgery related to the spine, there is a risk of nerve damage and infection. Consult a specialist thoroughly before you commit to a Laminectomy.
What are the advantages?
Laminectomy relieves pain in affected parts of your body and helps you move around better.
How much time does it take to recover?
While you can be fully mobile a few days after surgery, full recovery will take around a year.
