Spine Reconstructive Surgery

Spine Reconstructive Surgery

A spine reconstructive surgery is performed when is diagnosed with a deformed or a misaligned spine. The treated spine is stabilised with pins and rods to keep the vertebrae in place. The procedure can also involve complete removal and replacement of the vertebrae with the use of computerised surgical techniques.

A spine reconstructive surgery can also be done with minimal invasion to ensure the surrounding soft tissues are not disrupted. However, surgery is only an option when conventional medical treatments are not effective and the patient is undergoing a lot of pain, hindering their daily activities and life on the whole.

How is it performed?

  • A spine reconstructive surgery is usually accompanied by a spinal fusion. This involves the removal of the intervertebral disc that lies between two vertebrae followed by binding the vertebrae together. 
  • The intervertebral disc is replaced with a bone graft to offer support and enhance bone growth. 
  • The vertebrae are then fused together once the new bone has grown enough to support the disc space. 
  • The surgeon may also use a combination of metal plates and screws to keep the vertebral bones in place. This depends on various factors like the age of the patient and the medical background.
