  • Call us at : 0091-9899993637 What is Lumbar Fusion? Lumbar spinal fusion is an operation that causes the bones of the spine in the lower back to grow together. The goal of the lumbar fusion is to have the two adjacent vertebrae to fuse (grow solidly together) so that there is no longer any motion between them. It is done with the aim of reducing any painful motion or spur formation between them which can be a potential cause of nerve injury. What is PLIF? In Posterior lumbar interbody fusion, the spinal fusion is achieved through a surgical incision made on the posterior (back) aspect of spine. It aims at fusion of two adjacent vertebrae in cases of spinal instability and associated back pain. It is a popular procedure as it gives excellent results. Major medical journals document that the procedure provides almost complete relief of symptoms in 90-95% of the cases and the patients are able to return to their daily activities within a few weeks. The patients can also return to most of their recreational activities.

  • Call us at : 0091-9899993637 Why is it done? This procedure is generally recommended for patients, who suffer from chronic pain and instability of spine due to conditions such as spondylolisthesis, disc herniation, degenerative disc disease etc that have not responded to conservative measures ( rest, physical therapy, medications) or after procedures such as bilateral laminectomy or discectomy. This procedure resolves the problem of spinal instability by infusing a bone graft within the disc space between the two vertebrae which allows new bone to grow, bridging the affected vertebrae. The procedure ultimately aims at achieving spinal stability through bony fusion. A fusion creates rigid and immovable column of bone in the problem section of the spine thus preventing any painful movement. The procedure also restores the normal intervertebral distance, thus relieving pain, numbness, and tingling caused due to nerve compression.

  • Call us at : 0091-9899993637 How is it done? • PLIF surgery aims at achieving spinal stability through bony fusion by two ways: The Open PLIF is the traditional technique which is performed using general anesthesia. The patient is made to lie down on his front side on the table with the low back exposed. A 3-6 inch long incision is made on the skin overlying the affected vertebrae. The skin and the fascia are cut open. The underlying muscles are retracted and the affected vertebrae are identified. Fluoroscopic X-ray is used to confirm the exact location of the affected vertebrae. Then a complete laminectomy (removal of the lamina of the vertebrae) followed by bilateral foraminotomy (enlargement of the foramen by removing the bony spurs) and/or discectomy (removal of offending disc) are performed. This relieves the compression off the spinal nerves, allowing them to come to their normal size and shape. The area is checked for any remaining bony outgrowth or disc fragments that may compress the nerves.

The muscles are gradually dilated and tubular retractors inserted to allow access to the affected area of the lumbar spine. The lamina is removed to allow visualization of the nerve roots. The offending disc material is removed from the spine and replaced with a bone graft and structural support from a cage made of bone, titanium, carbon-fiber, or a polymer, followed by placement of rod and screws. The tubular retractors are removed, allowing the dilated muscles to come back together, and the incisions are closed. This procedure typically takes about 3 to 3 ½ hours to perform. There was less blood loss, tissue trauma, operative time, and quick recovery in this procedure as compared to the traditional one Please scan and email your medical reports to us at hospitalindia@gmail.com or hospitalindia@yahoo.com and we shall get you a Free, No Obligation Opinion from India's leading Specialist Doctors
  • Call us at : 0091-9899993637 What People Say About Us Ms Cheryl Campbell from USA Spinal Disc Replacement Surgery in India “Any space occupying structure within the spinal canal like herniated or bulging disc, thickened ligament, osteophytes (bone spurs), facet joint thickening can compress the spinal cord resulting in symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling and weakness of the hand or legs. In extreme cases loss of bowel and bladder control is also observed. Laminotomy aims at making an incision in the lamina, to remove a small part of it, creating room for the spinal cord within the canal. This relieves the compression and thus the symptoms disappear. Through the hole in the lamina, the thickened ligament or disc fragment which may be compressing the cord and nerves are also removed. My husband and I have experience of hospitals both in the US and UK. Finding www.spinesurgeryhospitalindia.com has been a boon. The hospital in India is overall the very best we have experienced. The level of care is exceptional. Were any of our family to need surgery again, with time to make a choice we would come here.
