Information about Spondylolisthesis
Spondylolisthesis is the displacement of one spinal vertebra compared to another. While some medical dictionaries define spondylolisthesis specifically as the forward or anterior displacement of a vertebra over the vertebra inferior to it (or the sacrum), it is often defined in medical textbooks as displacement in any direction. Spondylolisthesis is graded based upon the degree of slippage of one vertebral body relative to the subsequent adjacent vertebral body. Spondylolisthesis is classified as one of the six major etiologies: degenerative, traumatic, dysplastic, isthmic, pathologic, or post-surgical. Spondylolisthesis most commonly occurs in the lumbar spine, primarily at the L5-S1 level with the L5 vertebral body anteriorly translating over the S1 vertebral body.
The London Spine unit at The Harley Street Hospital we specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of Spondylolisthesis. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Spondylolisthesis. Xrays cannot often diagnose the problem and the best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Spondylolisthesis.
If you have been diagnosed with Spondylolisthesis or you have been advised to have surgery on your spine including your Lumbar Spine then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Spondylolisthesis can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.
