With the increasing workload, we have shifted towards a sedentary lifestyle due to which postural problems like back and neck pain are developing even in young adults. When we don't give proper medical attention to postural problems they lead us to the severe complication of the spine like disc bulging out and compressing the nerve roots and thus pain starts radiating to the affected arm or leg. Now this pain is not even controlled by the pain killers and physiotherapy and is troubling day and night.
In such cases, the spine surgeon had to remove the compression on the nerve roots by removing the diseased disc or putting the artificial disc. After the disc removal or replacement surgery pressure on the nerves release and the intensity of the pain decreases and slow with medicines and physiotherapy pain is completely gone.
Surgery & Recovery
When you get admitted for the surgery we carry out all the pre-surgery tests to evaluate your fitness for surgery. The spine surgery for disc removal is finished in 45-60 minutes and 2 hours for disc replacement. We use FDA approved imported titanium implants and keep the biggest stock of these implants so that the right sized implant is used for your spine surgery. Your stay in the hospital would be 5 days.
You are on your feet from the 2nd day of the surgery and intensive physiotherapy is given during your stay at the hospital. After discharge, you are given a complete program for rehabilitation which you should continue for the next 45-60 days during which you would recover completely and would be able to do all kinds of activities.
Disc Removal or Replacement Surgery at Vardhman Hospital is done by a team of Spine Surgeons led by world-renowned Dr. Mukesh Jain. and Dr. Anubhav Jain. We perform spine surgery by using laser technology ie Minimal Invasive Surgery or sometimes called endoscopic spine surgeries.
Sometimes a disc, the cushion that separates your vertebrae, can slip out of place, press on a spinal nerve, and cause back pain. In a discectomy, the surgeon removes all or part of the disk.
