Day Case Complex Spine Surgery

The spinal column is a highly complex structure that houses the spinal cord. Through it emerges the nerves that allow the movement of the body and transmit sensitivity. This is why traumatic injuries and the various pathologies that affect them must be managed by a group of highly experienced specialists, constantly updated and with the most advanced technologies available.

 

Main pathologies and injuries

London Spine specialists are highly trained and have the technological support to treat from the simplest to the most complex spinal pathologies, such as:

-Spine pain: cervical, dorsal and lumbar.
-Degenerative diseases: a herniated disc, spinal canal stenosis.
-Deformities: children, adolescents and adults.

-Rheumatological pathologies: rheumatoid arthritis of the spine.
-Tumours: primary and secondary (metastasis).
-Traumatic injuries: cervical, dorsal, lumbar and sacrococcygeal.

Complex Spine Surgery requires specialist equipment and should be performed by surgeons with specialist expertise in this type of surgery.

About day case spine surgery

Spine surgery is considered when conservative treatments have failed and the pain is persistent. These are the types of spine surgery:

 

Discectomy: This consists of removing the herniated part of the disc to alleviate irritation and inflammation of a nerve. Discectomy generally requires full or partial removal of the back part of the vertebra (lamina) to get access to the ruptured disc.

 

Laminectomy: This procedure consists of removing the bone that lines the spinal canal. It enlarges the spinal canal and is carried out to alleviate pressure on the nerves caused by the stenosis of the spinal canal.

 

Fusion: Spinal fusion´s main goal is connecting two or more bones in the spine. Fusion may relieve pain by providing stability to a spinal fracture.

 

Artificial discs: Implanted artificial discs are an alternative option to spinal fusion for painful movement between two vertebrae caused by degenerated or injured disc.

 

At the Harley Street Hospital, we are one of the few centres that perform spine surgery as day case. This provides many advantages, such as the following:

-The surgery is performed with local anaesthesia. As a result, the patient can go back home the same day.

– It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses advanced equipment.

– We administer special medications to relax the muscles to avoid muscle spasm and pain after the procedure.

– Lowered risk of complications such as deep venous thrombosis, infections on the ward, and other issues related to delayed mobilisation.

-In addition, lowered risk of contracting COVID-19 due to a brief hospital stay and extreme precaution measures.
