There is no need to be in Pain Again

Artificial disc replacement surgery is also known as spine arthroplasty. Currently, artificial disc replacement is available for the neck (cervical) and back (lumbar) spine. Artificial disc replacement is an alternative to the traditional spinal fusion. The degeneration and damage of the discs that cushion the bones of the spine can be increases by the genetics, age, and daily wear and tear of routine activities.  The doctors generally start with the nonsurgical (conservative) medical treatment to treat degenerative disc disease. But, when conservative therapy fails the doctors uses spinal fusion surgical treatment. This process permanently locks two or more spinal vertebrae composed so that they cannot move. But spinal fusion has some drawbacks, such as
  • Loss of flexibility and motion
  • Permanently altered motion features and biomechanics

Artificial disc replacement is better than spinal fusion as it offers a viable, reversible option to the fusion and avoids the accepted flaws of fusion. There is the possibility of reducing damage to adjacent joints and discs by inserting an artificial disc in comparison to performing spinal fusion. Artificial disc replacement permits 
  • Motion preservation
  • Normal distribution of stress along the spine
  • Restoration of pre-degenerative disc height

The technique to install an artificial disc is routine and safe. The material and design of disc is revolutionary and similar to the materials used in knee and hip replacement surgery. The material is designed in such a way that is not harmful or sensitive to the body and skin. Recovery is fast after the surgery and less painful.

Get Effective Treatment For Back Pain

Disc Replacement surgery, also called disc arthroplasty or cervical disc replacement, is one of the latest treatment options for degenerative disc diseases, where the damaged discs are replaced by an artificial disc. Disc replacement surgery helps in restoring full motion capabilities and eliminating pain related to disc injuries or irregularities.

Disc deformities cause excessive pressure on spinal cord and associated nerves which lead to severe pain in the lower back. This can be cured by replacing the concerned disc and restoring the spine structure. Disc arthroplasty helps in re-establishing the normal disc functions. of Disc Replacement Surgery

Disc replacement surgery can be distinguished to different types depending on the extent of replacement carried out. The surgical procedure where the whole disc structure is replaced is called total disc replacement. Here the whole or most of the disc tissues are replaced by an artificial prosthesis.

Disc nucleus replacement involves the replacement of the centre of the disc, also called disc nucleus.

Procedure of Disc Replacement Surgery

The procedure of disc arthroplasty is conducted under general anaesthesia. The deformed disc is removed through an incision made on the neck. The artificial disc is implanted after decompressing the associated nerves. The procedure is comparatively simpler and less painful than other spinal surgeries.

Benefits of Disc Replacement Surgery

The major benefits of the surgery are as follows: -
  • Restores motion and provides relief from pain
  • Does not cause harm to adjoining joints or discs
  • Reduces cervical collar immobilisation
  • Does not require bone grafting
  • Can prevent the accelerated degeneration in the discs
  • Reduces oesophagus irritation and swallowing difficulties
The procedure is not fit for those suffering from conditions like osteoporosis, spinal infections or tumour, spondylolisthesis and so on. It is also not performed in case of pregnancy or on children.

Get Rid Of Neck Pain...

The neck or cervical spine, which  co ordinates network of nerves, bones joints and muscles from the brain and the spinal cord. The neck has the important role providing support, strength, stability and mobility for the head and it is particularly vulnerable to injury.

Neck injury happens when the muscles and ligaments of the neck are forced to move outside of normal range. Sometimes, sudden jerking of the head, car accidents, sudden falls, sports injury, poor posture, repetitive motions, holding head in unusual position causes neck pain or injury.

Common Causes Neck Pain 

  • Cervical degenerative disc disease
  • Cervical herniated disc
  • Cervical spinal stenosis with myelopathy
  • Cervical foraminal stenosis

Cervical degenerative disc disease causes when the discs gradually lose hydration and the ability to cushion the spine's vertebrae. It can lead to painful irritation of cervical nerve.

Cervical herniated disc is a condition which the cervical disc gets herniated due to the leakage of the jelly like inner layer called nucleus pulpous through a tear in the disc's protective outer layer. This may happen because of an injury or aging.

Cervical spinal stenosis and myelopathy is a condition which causes the narrowing of the spinal canal due to the degeneration of the spine. When the spinal canal narrows and compress the spinal cord ( a large bundle of nerves that runs inside the spinal canal) leads to myelopathy. The symptoms of myelopathy is weakness of arms, hands, legs or feet.

Cervical for aminal stenosis occurs when the foramina (the holes in the vertebral construct) become narrowed, which can cause irritation for the nerve root that runs through it.

No More Suffering due to Back Pain

Numbness in the lower back and acute pain in the same area when trying to walk or stand upright are common issues reported by most people. These symptoms may point the finger towards Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.

Minimally Invasive Lumbar Discectomy (MILD) is a method used to treat Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.  Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is a condition in which the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord nerves within. This creates acute pain and one might find numbness on the lower back when standing upright or walking. Thickening of ligament tissues, bulging of vertebral discs or growth of an extra bone may be the reasons. Aging is, however, the most commonly found reason for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.
This is a surgical procedure done with a small incision at the lower back but seldom is anesthesia used. Implants or stitches are also not required for the purpose. The cause for the pain like excess ligament tissue, extra bone, bulging that creates problems with discs are all incised out from the body and it creates instant relief to the patient. The doctor might suggest physical rest for the patient to keep him away from strenuous physical activities.
Though MILD procedure reports very high rate of success, it should be done with utmost care and medical expertise. Dr. Sai Sudarsan is a well trained and an experienced micro and Endo vascular neurosurgeon have successfully carried out many such surgeries with the help of a dedicated team.

Effective Treatment for Brain Aneurysm

An Artery supplies blood to every organ. When it supplies to the brain, the walls of arteries becomes bulged and weakened, that is called brain aneurysm. In most of the cases, a brain aneurysm does not cause any specific symptoms until it ruptures. In rare cases, when the brain aneurysm ruptures, blood releases in the skull and causes a stroke.

It is an endovascular coiling technique, where placing a device in the parent blood vessel to divert the blood flow away from an aneurysm instead of placing the device inside the aneurysm sac.

How is the Flow Diversion Performed ?

Flow diversion, is otherwise called as Pipeline procedure which does not involve a craniotomy. This minimally invasive procedure is done under anesthesia. The surgeon inserts a microcatheter in the leg, and it goes through the blood vessels. The catheter end is loaded with a stent. The surgeon positions the stent inside the blood vessel of the aneurysm without touching the aneurysm. Soon after placing, the stent which causes the blood flow is immediately rerouted. Finally, the neurosurgeon removes the catheter and monitors the stent position by watching the blood flow. Once the blood flow to the aneurysms is reduced, then the complete aneurysm closure occurs between 6 weeks to 6 months. The surgical team monitors the patient carefully for next 24 months, whether the new cells rebuild the blood vessel where an aneurysm occurred.
When an aneurysm ruptures, the patient will feel pain, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, hypotension, tachycardia, seizures, sensitivity to light, and pain in neck.

Causes for A Brain Aneurysm
It mostly occurs, when the wall of the brain blood vessel is weakened.  The risk factors which might increase the occurrences of an aneurysm are smoking, stress, and hypertension. The previous histories of aneurysm are family history, age, head injury, and alcohol consumption.

Spinal Problem Treatment in Hyderabad

The spine is made up of 26 bones called vertebrae. The vertebrae protect the spinal cord. There are several problems that can alter the structure of the spine or injure the vertebrae and surrounding tissue. Among them:
  • Tumors
  • Infections
  • Injuries
  • Diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis and scoliosis
Often, spinal diseases cause pain when pressed bone marrow changes or nerves. They can also limit movement. Treatment varies depending on the disease, but sometimes include back braces and surgery.

Symptoms vary depending on the location of the injury. The spinal cord injury causes weakness and loss of sensation in the area of ​​injury and below it. The severity of symptoms depends on whether the entire cord is severely injured (complete) or only partially injured (incomplete).
Injuries to the spinal cord at any level can cause:
  • Increased muscle tone (spasticity)
  • Loss of normal bowel and bladder control (may include constipation, incontinence, bladder spasms)
  • Numbness
  • Sensory changes
  • Pain
  • Weakness, paralysis
The spinal injury need immediate medical attention.  The doctor will perform a physical examination, including an examination of the brain and nervous system (neurological examination).

A trigeminal nerve consist of three major branches:

1. Ophthalmic nerve (V1)
2. Maxillary nerve (V2)
3. Mandibular nerve (V3)

All among them gets affected individually or in a combination of branches.
Trigeminal neuralgia mostly involves the maxillary nerve(V2) and mandibular nerve(V3) of the trigeminal nerve. The pain may be felt in the eye, nose, ear,teeth, jaw, lips, scalp, forehead, cheeks and side of the face. If you are a victim of Trigeminal Neuralgia, even the slightest stimulation to your face such as daily routine activities can cause extreme pain.
