The most important relaying fibers of information to the brain – the spinal cord, lies protected within the bony canal of spine. This entire canal is circumferentially lined by bones, discs, joints and ligaments throughout its entire length from the base of skull to the lower most point of spine. Spinal canal stenosis or narrowing of the canal, is a condition where the space within this canal gets compromised due to overgrowth of tissues lining the canal or instability of spinal segments. This reduces the breathing space for the nerves and they become cramped within the unyielding confines of spinal canal. People having spinal canal stenosis generally get pain in the legs especially on standing or bending backwards .They experience increasing pain or heaviness in legs on walking for some distance. This pain compels the person to rest for some time to walk further and the cycle repeats. This walkable distance reduces further with the progression of the disease. All the symptoms are relieved to an extent on lying down. Though in severe cases even lying flat on back for some time also gives pain in the legs.
The most commonly offered treatment for the spinal canal stenosis is an open decompressive spine surgery with fixation of the unstable spine if there. This gives the needed breathing space to the nerves and relieves the symptoms. Axis Clinics is one of its kind specialty clinic in Delhi which offers treatment for spinal canal stenosis or narrowing by virtue of better understanding of the problem areas. We have refined the way decompression is done through minimally invasive surgical interventions. The interventions are targeted to the problem areas through small openings. In case of instabilities, we align the unstable spine through ligament tightening interventions in form of regenerative medicine using specialized platelet and plasma cell therapy. All efforts put together results in a stable and decompressed spinal canal. This alleviates the pain due to relief of pressure from the compressed nerves and patients regain their confidence in walking without any limitations.
All the treatment available for spine at Axis Clinics considers safety of the patient as the single most important deciding factor while treating any pain of spinal origin.This quest has led to intensive research and training to understand the genesis of pain in the spine and the safest way to treat it effectively.
A precise targeted endoscopic treatment for slipped disc, sciatica, and back pain done under local anesthesia with immediate relief and promising outcomes. The procedure is extremely safe and has no collateral damage to other tissues in the body.
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.
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.
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.
A pin-hole intervention done under X-ray guidance to ablate certain nerves carrying pain signals from joints of spine.
An image guided intervention to remove disc material in selected patients of slipped disc. The procedure is done through a needle under local anesthesia.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A procedure very much similar to Adhesiolysis wherein a selective nerve root is treated to relieve it from pressures due to entrapment.
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.
Axis Clinics boast to have very experienced and well trained specialists in the field of interventional pain medicine, regenerative medicine,advanced orthopedics , rehabilitative medicine and clinical psychology to treat pains related to spine,joints and sports injuries.
