Disc Prolapse


A soft flexible disc that acts as a shock absorbers are placed  in between the vertebral bone These discs have a rigid outside rim, but are soft and gel-like inside. "Activity, stress or a mechanical problem in the spine can cause one of the discs to bulge and become misshapen just as a rubber tire might with pressure on it. Disc will bulge to the point where it herniates or ruptures and puts even greater pressure on the nerve root.  In the lower back, the nerve roots lead to the legs and irritation may cause not only back pain, but also pain that radiates down one or both of the legs. There also can be muscle weakness, numbness or changes in the reflexes in the legs if a nerve root in the lumbar spine is irritated.


Conservative  treatment

There are several conservative treatment options that may relieve the symptoms associated with a herniated disc. These include: alternate bed rest with ambulation and medications to reduce inflammation and pain. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are often used for this purpose. Physiotherapy  includes exercise, massage, thermotherapy, as well as a device designed to support the back - a corset, back belt, or brace


Traditional Surgery

When no improvement is noted after a course of conservative treatment, surgery might be considered The most common procedure is a open discectomy which is done with,


General  Anaesthesia

2.5-10cm incision

Muscle dissection

Bone removal(partial laminotomy)

Retraction of nerve root and

Retraction of dural sac may sometimes  damage it

Lengthy hospital stay 5 to 12 days


Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy under local anaesthesia


This is  a unique surgery in which the prolapsed discs are removed under local   anaesthesia and the patients are keep talking during the procedure and allowed walking on the same day and discharged on the next day.

4        24 hour Hospital Stay

5        Cost effective

6        Less Morbidity

7        No bony or soft tissue dissection

8        Early mobilization

                  9)   Walk in Walkout procedure



Osteoporotic Compression Fracture


Gone are the days, months of bed rest and the bulky  corsets and spinal braces for the vertebral compression fractures. We offer the latest technology in which under local anaesthesia special needles are passed in to the fractured vertebral bone under local anaesthesia .The bone cement is injected as in semiliquid form in the fractured vertbra .The cement hardened in few minutes so that patients are able to get up and walk immediately after the procedure.
