Every time we move, the spine provides our entire body steadiness and strength. Additionally, the spinal vertebrae (bones) protect our spinal cord. Therefore, a skilled orthopaedic surgeon must handle any issues with our spine. Let’s discuss some types and when you need a Spinal bone surgery (การผ่าตัดกระดูกสันหลัง, which is the term in Thai)
How Can You Tell If You Require Spine Surgery?
Nearly always, when a patient presents with discomfort in their extremities, doctors advise them first to have a primary care physician evaluation. When someone complains of neck or lower back discomfort, they usually monitor them over time and advise them to continue engaging in healthy. Steady physical activity to see whether the problem goes away. The following action would be to contact a doctor for an evaluation if the problem is not resolved with physical exercise, over-the-counter remedies, or pain management and anti-inflammatory medications.
The treatment of many people with spinal issues does not require surgery. Prior to contemplating surgery, physical therapy, at-home workouts, medications, and frequent spinal injections are advised. Surgery becomes a viable choice if the issue is still not remedied.
Discectomy In The Back
A lumbar discectomy is a spinal operation performed on a patient’s lower back to remove a damaged disc. Open spinal surgery and minimally invasive arthroscopic discectomy are the two methods of lumbar discectomy. The most frequent treatment for a herniated disc in the lumbar region involves open spine surgery.
Disc Herniation Surgery
The surgeon might remove any portion of the afflicted disc during surgery to treat a herniated disc. Suppose this fails to alleviate the disc discomfort. In that case, the doctor might remove the disc entirely and allow the two neighbouring vertebrae to fuse. However, spinal fusion renders that part of your back immobile. Therefore, this choice must be thoroughly discussed between both of you and your doctor. However, compared to earlier years, spinal fusion surgery is much more secure and less dangerous.
Surgical Spinal Fusion
A spinal fusion involves the surgeon joining two neighbouring vertebrae to prevent pain brought on by their movement against one another. The vertebrae are connected by the surgeon using tiny screws and rods. After that, they are allowed to heal and fuse gradually. To aid with the fusion of the vertebrae, the doctor might also take a minor bone graft from a different part of your body.
