Slipped Disc

Slip Disc Treatment & Surgery In Delhi

Slipped Disc treatmentSlipped disc is a very common and dreaded term which people associate with back pain. Have you ever wondered what it means? The bone pieces of a human spine are spaced in between with a cushion like structure called a disc. This disc is made up of a jelly like elastic tissue encased in a strong meshwork of fibrous covering. The purpose of the disc is to provide stability and flexibility to the spine and act like a shock absorber. These discs are present between two adjacent spine segments at every level. The gelatinous tissue in it expands whenever the forces compresses them and it collapses back to normal due to the intact fibrous covering of the disc, once the forces are removed. This normal functioning could be compromised when the covering of the disc is damaged either due to chronic trauma or any acute injury as during putting excessive pressure on the disc while lifting something heavy in an improper way.

The disc fails to bear the pressure and the gelatinous tissue either bulges out or pops out through the weakest point in the fibrous covering, never to return to it its original place. This condition is called a Slipped Disc or Disc Prolapse in medical jargon.

slipped disc

Such an injury causes severe back pain which may linger on for years as the process of its healing is extremely slow. A slipped disc results in back pain which may or may not radiate pain or numbness in the legs. The inflammatory reaction due to the slipped disc irritates the surrounding nerves causing severe pain running down the extremities. This may be followed by numbness as the inflammatory reactions or the pressure due to the bulging disc damages the surrounding nerves. The nerves heal slowly if the pathology is treated in time but it could be permanently damaged if left to further deterioration.

A slipped disc is generally treated with rest and conservative treatment. In cases where the pain or numbness persists an intervention is required. The intervention ranges from minimally invasive surgeries to open spine surgeries. Axis Clinics, Delhi is committed to offer the best treatment for slipped disc. Not only the treatments offered are safe but they are minimally invasive and do not require long hospital stays. The treatment focuses on conserving and regenerating the damaged disc and restoring its function through stitch less interventions.

Percutaneous Stenoscopic Lumbar Decompression

A minimally invasive endoscopic surgery intended for spinal canal stenosis wherein the cramped spinal nerves are freed from the pressures of overgrown yellow ligaments within the spinal canal.The increasing numbness and heaviness in legs happening on walking for a distance, gets better immediate after the surgery.

spine treatment

Selective Nerve Root Desensitization

A precision intervention where a chronically inflamed or irritated nerve root is treated selectively with a low voltage and high frequency radio frequency current to modulate the electrical conduction of painful signals or certain drugs intended to break the pain cycle.

spine treatment

Epidural Adhesiolysis

A highly skilled intervention for patients having pain as a result of entrapment of the nerve in the scar after a spine surgery. The procedure involves navigation in the spine with a device under image guidance and loosening the scar tissue to make room for the entrapped nerve.

spine treatment

Percutaneous Rhizotomy

A pin-hole intervention done under X-ray guidance to ablate certain nerves carrying pain signals from joints of spine.

Percutaneous Disc Decompression

An image guided intervention to remove disc material in selected patients of slipped disc. The procedure is done through a needle under local anesthesia.

spine treatment

Vertebroplasty/Kyphoplasty

A procedure done to fix the vertebral fractures by injecting cement through a needle under the effect of local anesthesia. The relief in back pain due to the fracture is immediate.

Hybrid Spine Surgery

A 360 degrees minimally invasive spine surgery to treat an unstable spine (spondylolisthesis) with disc prolapse and spinal canal stenosis. The entire surgery is minimally invasive and is done through small cuts under local and regional anesthesia.

spine treatment

Annulopasty

This is a pin-hole intervention done under image guidance to treat the damaged and sensitive disc covering which causes chronic back pain in patients having slipped disc.

spine treatment

Spinal cord stimulations

A highly advanced intervention to treat chronic back pains persisting even after spine surgeries or for complex pain syndromes. In this a small electrical device is implanted in the body like a pace maker which gives continuous stimulations to the nerves through the implanted wires in the spine and stops the pain signals to be perceived in the brain.

spine treatment

Neuroplasty

A procedure very much similar to Adhesiolysis wherein a selective nerve root is treated to relieve it from pressures due to entrapment.

spine treatment

Pulsed RF

This is a technique to treat any nerve and modulate its conduction of impulses. It involves passage of a high frequency radiofrequency current at a low voltage to the selected nerve which changes the perception of pain.
