Orthopedic spine surgery
Some common conditions that may require orthopedic spine surgery include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, spinal fractures, and spinal cord injuries.
There are several different types of orthopedic spine surgery, including:
Decompression surgery: This type of surgery involves removing part of the bone or disc material to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots.
Fusion surgery: This type of surgery involves fusing two or more vertebrae together to stabilize the spine and prevent further damage.
Disc replacement surgery: This type of surgery involves removing a damaged or degenerated disc and replacing it with an artificial disc to maintain spinal mobility.
Minimally invasive surgery: This type of surgery involves using smaller incisions and specialized tools to perform surgery with less damage to the surrounding tissue and a shorter recovery time.
Recovery from orthopedic spine surgery can vary depending on the type and extent of the surgery, as well as the individual's overall health and fitness level. In general, patients may need to undergo a period of rehabilitation and physical therapy to regain strength and mobility in the affected area.
