By Nainynicole Subscribe to RSS | April 11th 2012 | Views:

Spinal surgery is conducted on patients who suffer from ache that is connected to spine or from back ache. There can be different causes for back pain. The pain could be liberated from various areas of the body like neck, lower back, neck and arms. After identifying the cause of the pain, the first step is to make particular incisions to access the affected parts. Two types of surgeries can be performed on the patients, viz., invasive or laser spine surgery.

Understanding Spine fusion method

The traditional spine fusion method is considered to be the most common and oldest form of modern type of spinal surgery. The surgeons statistically view this procedure to be a success till the spine actually gets fused. However, this is a painful procedure that is not popular among the patients who are suffering. Therefore, this is not the most recommended process of surgery for the spine. In this particular form, there is a requirement for huge cuts and the muscles also get torn. There is also a heavy usage of anesthesia, healing and time.

Why laser spine surgery is the popular procedure?

The laser spine surgery method is a process that makes use of small incisions that is performed in the skin, through which specific, tiny instruments are included. This type of method is quite common and popularly used all over the world as it causes the least injuries to the muscle tissues, which would actually mean less pain and a shorter time at the hospital. Even the healing time is quite less. This type of spine surgery of using the minimal invasion could be easily undertaken on any of the part of the spinal chord.

The laser treatment is preferred over the spine fusion procedure as the inflamed and broken discs can be easily rectified. The affected region is cut open with the assistance of the laser beam, which is quick, painless and simple. It also does not cause any blood loss that normally takes place in case of any surgery. The laser spine surgery also helps the patients by causing minimum pain and faster recovery. They are commonly performed for curing disorders such as sciatica, failed back-syndrome, arthritis, foraminal stenosis, nerve entrapment and radiculopathy conditions.

Benefits of laser spine surgery

In this type of spinal surgery, the surgeon uses the least sedation or anesthesia on the patients and sophisticated techniques like endoscopic, arthroscopic and microscopic are used. The needle is guided by the x-ray for inserting in the herniated discs. The best part is that the patient recovers very fast and can leave the hospital within 24 hours, only with a very small bandage. In short, this type of surgery is beneficial and painless to the patients unlike the traditional spine fusion procedure. This surgery is also termed technically as Laser Endoscopic or Minimal invasive type of surgery and can be conducted even at an outpatient setting. With proper research on this type of surgery and the hospital, you can definitely have your back problem cured and get respite for ever.
