SPINE DEGENERATION

Occipital Cervical Spine

Instability in the atlanto-occipital joint results in hyper-mobility of the junction between the head and the neck which can cause severe pain or paralysis. It may result from rheumatoid arthritis or congenital defects that can accelerate degenerative arthropathy, resulting in spinal cord compression. At Kauvery Advanced Spine Centre, we use the latest developments in imaging, computer-assisted surgery, and instrumentation to provide safe surgery.

Conditions That Can Be Treated
Chronic Cl – C2 instability
Degenerative Cl – C2 joint
Congenital problems
Odontoid fracture
Rheumatoid arthritis

Degenerative cervical spine disorders

The cervical spine is the most flexible anatomic region in the axial skeleton. Distinct segments of the cervical spine give us the ability to perform complex neck motions like head turning, tilting or bending this leads to increase in wear and tear of disc.

The most common degenerative disorders of the cervical spine affect the C3-C7 segments. Symptoms of disc herniation, joint degeneration, and stenosis include neck pain, arm pain and sensory disturbance, weakness, spasticity and difficulty in walking or using hands.

At Kauvery Advanced Spine Centre, minimally invasive approaches can be performed from the back of neck for decompression of nerve roots. Our surgical team also has expertise in motion-sparing operations such as cervical disc replacement and cervical laminoplasty that obviate the need for a cervical spinal fusion.

Conditions That Can Be Treated
Cervical disc bulge
Cervical stenosis (Cord compression)
Cervical kyphosis
Cervical osteophyte (Bone compression)

Degenerative Thoracolumbar Spine Disorders

Degenerative thoracolumbar disorders are becoming increasingly prevalent as patients have longer, healthier, and more active lives. While much of the treatment is nonsurgical, there are certain conditions that require surgery. Some degenerative diseases can be easily treated with small, minimally invasive procedures, but others require large, reconstructive operations. The spine surgeons at Kauvery Advanced Spine Centre have considerable experience treating the entire spectrum of degenerative disorders, as well as in-depth knowledge of the success rates of each procedure. Mini open and minimally invasive transthoracic disc surgery is performed here.

Thoracolumbar conditions treated include
Disc herniations
Stenosis
Degenerative adult scoliosis
Kyphosis
Facet joint arthroplasty
SI joint degeneration
