Spine Trauma and Tumor Surgery in Pune
Spinal trauma is caused by injury of the spinal cord that can occur because of a sudden blow to your spine. Such injuries can lead to one or more fractures, dislocates, crushes, or compresses of your vertebrae.
In some cases, spinal trauma can also be caused by situations like the stabbing of a knife or even gunshot wounds that could pierce through your spinal cord, damaging it gravely.
Advantages of Spine Trauma Surgery
- Relieves the pressure falling on the spinal cord and other spinal nerves.
- Removes damaged bone structures like bone fractures or herniated discs.
- Helps get long-term relief from pain caused by the trauma. Improves posture and mobility.
Who can opt for Spine Trauma Surgery?
People who have faced spinal trauma caused by a number of events including damage-causing accidents of any nature. People who have had traumatic and discomforting experiences/ailments like fractures and other dislocation complications are also eligible to get spinal trauma surgery.
If someone is suffering from chronic back pain that has not subsided even after trying out other ways of pain relief, they too can get this procedure done.
SPINAL TUMORS SURGERY (Only applicable after a tumor has been diagnosed).
A spinal tumor is the growth of an abnormal mass of tissue within or surrounding the spinal cord. Like most cancers, spinal tumors also multiply in numbers, and most times also uncontrollably, making it all the more difficult to deal with.
Spinal tumors are of both types, malignant (cancerous) as well as benign (non-cancerous). Typical signs of a spinal tumor can include symptoms like worsening back pain, muscle weakness, difficulty walking, and muscle twitches among others.
Advantages of Spine Tumors Surgery:
- Spinal Tumor removal surgery can make the patient’s spine more stable.
- Will help the patient get rid of as much tumor as possible.
- And also provide relief from the other discomforting symptoms.
Who can opt for Spine Tumors Surgery?
People who have experienced the typical symptoms for a fairly long time like chronic back pain that won’t go away even after multiple treatments and medications, extreme muscle weakness among other symptoms.
Patients who have continuously experienced some unusual back discomfort and/or pain especially in and around the spinal cord can also get the procedure done.
Recovery and Care After Spinal Tumor Surgery: What to Expect
With spinal tumors too, like in other tumors, a biopsy sample is taken to determine the nature and type of the spinal tumor, along with a spine CT or MRI in some more challenging cases. On the basis of the biopsy’s results, the next course of treatment and a surgical plan are decided by the leading surgeon in that particular case.
In most cases, the patient can go home within a week or sometimes even less after the tumor surgery. Having said that, it is also important to keep in mind that some patients may need to avail of stay-in care facilities in a hospital or any other such rehabilitation facilities to recover faster and in a better manner.
Apart from rehabilitation and stay-in care, tumor surgery patients may still be kept on pain-relieving medication for up to several weeks post-surgery.
A typical recovery period from a spinal tumor surgery lasts for approximately 3 to 4 weeks if no complications were faced during the surgery.
