At Svastha Hospital, we make sure you truly need spine surgery before we recommend it. First, we assess patients through our Spine and Back Care services. We try nonsurgical methods to address your neck, spine or back pain, including physical therapy.
If we still recommend spine surgery after that, you can rest assured we are confident surgery will help you. Our spine orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons at Svastha Hospital are some of the best in the country.
We understand spine surgery may seem scary. We’ll take the time to walk you through all your surgical options so you feel comfortable with your procedure.
We know that when you’re in pain, you want it addressed quickly. Our goal is to see you within one to two weeks, and sooner if your situation is urgent. We welcome second opinions.
Extensive spine surgery experience: Spine neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons at Svastha Hospital typically perform more than numerous spine surgeries each year. Because they see a wide variety of spine issues and can draw on their experience, they can provide you with better outcomes. Research shows that spine surgeons who perform a high volume of surgeries have better outcomes for their patients with fewer complications.
Minimally invasive spine surgery: Spine neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons offer a full range of minimally invasive spine surgeries. Minimally invasive spine surgeries typically mean you will have less pain and a faster recovery.
Percutaneous spine surgery: Some minimally invasive surgeries (e.g., ALIF or DLIF) can be performed percutaneously. With percutaneous minimally invasive surgery, screws used for fusion are inserted into the skin through small incisions without cutting underlying muscle as with open surgery.
Easier on your body: Along with minimally invasive surgeries, Svastha Hospital spine surgeons use a pain management approach that leads to less reliance on opioids and less pain. In addition, our downtown Chicago location uses EOS imaging, a system that provides less radiation than traditional imaging.
Alternatives to spinal fusion: Svastha Hospital spine surgeons have extensive experience with spine surgeries that preserve motion. For example, they participated in early FDA studies on new cervical disc replacement devices. They stay up-to-date on the latest alternatives to spinal fusion, such as dynamic stabilization.
Treatment for spinal tumors: Spine surgeons at Svastha Hospital have expertise in minimally invasive surgery for spinal tumors on the spinal cord and spinal nerves. Minimally invasive spine surgeries allow you to recover faster. A faster recovery means you can begin chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy (as needed) sooner.
Making surgery safer through 3D and augmented reality tools: Spine surgery can be incredibly complex. Svastha Hospital has technology that allows surgeons to create 3D surgical models. Without these models, it can be hard for surgeons to visualize all the nuances for spinal deformity and other complex surgeries. These models allow surgeons to better plan surgeries to enable better outcomes for patients. And, Svastha Hospital surgeons were the first in the world to use augmented reality to superimpose 3D surgical models directly onto the surgical area for even greater accuracy.
