What is Spine Surgery?

The spine is vulnerable to a variety of ailments that can affect millions of people, causing debilitating pain and disrupting daily life. Although neck and back pain are common conditions, treating spinal disorders can be quite complicated.

While surgery is often the last resort, many patients can be treated non-surgically. Before considering surgery, physical therapy, home exercises, medication, and spinal injections are recommended to alleviate the symptoms. However, if the symptoms persist, surgery may become necessary.

For instance, if a patient suffers from nerve compression and experiences considerable pain in their limbs, surgery may be recommended if non-surgical methods are ineffective. Similarly, if a patient experiences limb weakness due to spinal cord or nerve root compression, surgery may be necessary if non-surgical treatments have not been successful.

If you have been diagnosed with a back problem by your primary care physician or practitioner, it is essential not to delay seeking advice from a spine surgeon if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Persistent pain that spreads to an arm or leg
  • Pain that does not improve even after taking anti-inflammatory medications or steroids for more than a week.
  • Back pain accompanied by fever, chills, night sweats, and weight loss.
  • Loss of movement or weakness in a limb that was previously functioning
  • Inability to control the bladder or bowel movements.

We utilise evidence-based techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients, including manual therapy, exercise therapy, and modalities such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation. With our rehabilitation programmes, patients can regain their mobility, strength, and independence to return to their normal activities as soon as possible.


Common Spine Surgical Conditions:

  • Herniated or ruptured disks
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Vertebral fractures 
  • Degenerative disk disease


Spine Surgical Procedures:

  • Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty - involve injecting a glue-like bone cement into vertebrae with compression fractures caused by osteoporosis to harden and strengthen the bone
  • Spinal laminectomy/spinal decompression – a procedure involves removing the bony walls of the vertebrae and any bone spurs to open up the spinal column and relieve pressure on nerves due to spinal stenosis
  • Discectomy – removal of a herniated disk that presses on a nerve root or spinal cord, and is often done with laminectomy
  • Foraminotomy – a procedure involves enlarging the bony hole where a nerve root exits the spinal canal to prevent pressure from bulging disks or thickened joints
  • Nucleoplasty or plasma disk decompression – a procedure using a laser to vaporise tissue in a mildly herniated disk to relieve pressure on nerves and reduce the disk's size
  • Spinal fusion - removal a spinal disk and fusing adjacent vertebrae using bone grafts or metal devices, resulting in some loss of flexibility and requiring a long recovery period
  • Artificial disk replacement - when a severely damaged disk is replaced with a synthetic one to restore height and movement between vertebrae, as an alternative to spinal fusion
  • TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion) spine surgery – to stabilise and fuse the lower back vertebra, involving removal of disc material and insertion of a bone graft or implant to promote fusion between vertebrae
