Back and neck pain, although extremely common, are incapacitating ailments and that can significantly impair one’s quality of life. A majority of these patients do get better with conservative management options including medications and physiotherapy. Unfortunately, those patients that don’t get better frequently delay seeking more intensive treatment options including surgery due to the historic stigma associated with back and neck surgeries. Recently, in addition to the greater understanding of the various spinal disorders, there has been a significant improvement in the technologies available to manage these problems.
Minimally invasive spine surgeries (Keyhole) surgeries have evolved rapidly leading to faster rehabilitation of the patients with the least amount of damage to the structures. Additionally, supportive technologies including microscopes/loops, navigation and neuro-monitoring have made spinal surgeries safer than ever before.
