4 Most Common Types of Spine Surgeries Performed
by Spine Specialists in UK
  • The spine serves as the backbone of our human
    structure giving the much-needed stability and
    with its bone casing made up of vertebrae,
    protects the spinal cord that serves a link
    between brain and nerves from other parts of the
    body. Any injury or problem, structural or
    functional to the spine must be addressed and
    treated by an orthopaedic spine specialist at the
    earliest.
  • If you are suffering from
    chronic spine problems, it helps to get to know
    the available form treatment options beforehand
    and in this blog, we are here to let you know
    most common types of spine surgeries and cases
    when the surgical method is a preferred treatment
    option. Read on

When is spine surgery recommended by spine
specialist?
  • Treatment to any spine issue starts with
    conservative non-surgical treatment methods which
    include, medications, physical therapy,
    injections and rehab. And only when these
    non-surgical treatment options run out in
    effectively treating the conditions surgical
    options come into contention. In case the
    condition is a correctable deformity where the
    physical exams, MRI, and imaging studies must
    match with the symptoms, the patient is in good
    health for surgery and the overall pros of
    surgery far outweigh the cons, then surgical
    methods may be recommended by the spine surgeon.

four common types of spine surgery
  • Every year thousands of patients successfully
    undergo spine surgeries and here are the four
    common types of spine surgery that are performed
    by spine specialists in the UK
  • 1. Laminectomy Bone spurs, bulging disc, bone
    overgrowths, and ligaments can narrow the spinal
    space putting pressure on the spinal cord and
    nerves which can manifest in the form of
    radiation back or leg pain. Laminectomy is
    decompression surgery where a thin bony plate
    that is located on the back of the vertebrae is
    removed to ease this pressure on the nerves or
    spinal cord caused by these elements in the back.

  • 2. Discectomy  The discs in the back that act as
    a cushion between the vertebrae can rupture or
    slip putting pain on the nerves or spinal cord
    causing pain in legs, arms, chest, and buttocks
    with trouble in walking or sitting. Discectomy is
    another type of decompression surgery that is
    performed to remove the damaged portion to treat
    the pain caused by it.
  • 3. Vertebroplasty Vertebroplasty is a spine
    surgery procedure that helps stabilize the spine
    and relieve the pain in cases of vertebrae
    fractures which can be caused by injury or
    osteoporosis. The spine surgeon inserts the
    cement between the vertebrae spaces to strengthen
    the vertebrae, relieve the pain and arrest the
    further collapse.

  • 4. Spinal fusion  The procedure spinal fusion
    involves joining two bones using bone-like
    materials within the vertebrae spaces to permeant
    connect them and eliminate motion. Spinal
    fusion is a major and most common form of spine
    surgery that is performed by a spine surgeon to
    treat cases of spine instability and misalignment
    associated with spine conditions like scoliosis,
    degenerative disc diseases and spinal deformities.

Spine Specialists in UK
  • The above four surgeries is the most common form
    of spine surgeries performed by spine specialists
    in the UK and they are only resorted to when all
    other non-surgical treatment options do not
    sufficiently solve the spinal problems. However,
    the final call rests in the hands of an expert
    spinal surgeon who after evaluating your spine
    conditions, medical history and health recommend
    the right choice of treatment. If you are living
    in the UK and are looking for a spine specialist,
