The following are some of the spine surgical procedures provided at Gleneagles Global Hospitals:
Sleeping position and the mattress can greatly affect the spine. Your body requires sleep to rejuvenate itself. Avoid sleeping on the stomach as it may apply too much pressure on your spine. Use of supportive mattress and a pillow promotes the proper alignment of the neck. Turning the mattress regularly will make it wear off evenly.
Being active and regular exercise strengthens bone and muscles which support your spine. Exercise also helps to maintain a healthy body weight. Being overweight, especially presence of belly fat can add stress to your muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the lower back.
Practicing good posture while sitting and standing plays an important role in supporting the natural curves of the back. Proper ergonomics also reduces stress on the upper and lower back.
Drinking adequate fluids is important to maintain soft tissue elasticity and the fluidity in the joints. Dehydration causes the spinal discs to shrink leading to painful disc conditions such as ruptures or bulging.
Your care and comfort are our top priorities. We ensure that the patients are well informed prior to every step we take for their benefit and their queries are effectively answered.

Scoliosis is the abnormal curvature of the spine. Scoliosis surgery involves correcting the deformed curvature of the spine. With the advanced tools and technology, the surgeons at Gleneagles Global Hospitals are able to improve the curves significantly. The procedure involves spinal fusion where the curved vertebrae are realigned and fused together into a single and solid bone.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the incision is made in the back of the pine. Then the muscles are stripped off to access the bone elements of spine. Metal screws and rods are used to reduce the amount of curvature. Bone grafts are used to inciting the reaction where the bones in the spine fuse together.
Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive surgical procedure indicated in the patients with kyphosis. Kyphosis is an outward curvature of the spine and for the treatment of fractured vertebrae. The procedure involves injecting special cement into the vertebrae by creating a space with a balloon-like device.
A local or general anesthesia is administered before the procedure. In kyphoplasty, a needle is inserted into the affected bone through the skin with X-ray guidance. Then, a balloon-like device is inflated allowing the vertebrae to regain its normal shape. The space created is filled by injecting special cement.
