Reclaim Your Back: Spine Surgery, Restoring Freedom of Movement!

What is Spine Surgery?

The spine is a bridge of joints, discs, and bones between the head and coccyx that carries most of the body mass. It is one of the most important parts of the nervous system and consists of thirty-three vertebrae in total. Problems such as posture disorder, old age, and traumas can damage the spine and for this reason, patients can apply for surgery.

Spine surgery is a form of treatment that helps to solve diseases related to the spine. It prevents problems in the spine, pain, and movement restrictions, and loss of strength, and the patient can continue his/her life smoothly. Today, it is one of the most common types of surgery.

Spine Surgery Methods

The spine has many different structures and is therefore a complex structure. There are many types of spinal surgery.

  • Discectomy and Microdiscectomy: The process of surgical removal of waist and neck hernias is called discectomy. The minimally invasive discectomy treatment is called a microdiscectomy.
  • Disc Replacement: It is the process of removing the damaged spinal disc and replacing it with an artificial disc.
  • Laminectomy: It is the name given to the partial or complete removal of the thin bony part called the lamina.
  • Spinal Fusion: The spine is a bit complex as it consists of thirty-three vertebrae in total. Some disorders can disrupt the structure of more than one vertebra, in this case, the process of connecting two or more bones in the spine to eliminate these disorders is called spinal fusion.
  • Corpectomy: It is the process of removing one or more vertebrae completely or partially. 
  • Vertebroplasty: This is a procedure in which a substance is injected into the vertebrae when a fracture occurs or when cancer cells spread to the vertebrae.

Before Spine Surgery

Before the surgery, your doctor will examine you and ask you to do some things according to the results. First of all, you must follow your doctor's instructions exactly. 

Tell the doctor about the medication you are taking or your illness, if any, and the doctor will tell you whether you should take the medication or not. Do not smoke and do not drink alcohol. These slow down the recovery process. Pay attention to your diet before the surgery. Take vitamins and eat protein-containing foods.

Exercise, and develop your muscles. Psychologically prepare yourself for this surgery in a positive way. Organize your home accordingly and have a companion with you so that you can be comfortable after the surgery. Nevertheless, all this information is general rules, and the points to be considered before personalized surgery are best explained to you by the doctor.

After Spine Surgery

After the surgery is completed, do not strain your spine and rest for the first week. Never lift heavy objects and do not exercise for a while. You can exercise approximately 6 to 8 weeks after the surgery but still consult your doctor. Sports such as swimming and pilates strengthen the spinal muscles. Do not smoke or drink alcohol and eat a healthy diet.

What are the advantages of Spine Surgery?

Spinal surgery has many advantages. It plays a significant role in eliminating problems such as loss of muscle strength, back, neck, and leg pain, loss of sensation, numbness in the body, problems with urination, and impaired sexual function. If such problems cannot be treated without surgery, then surgery is the only solution.
