Back and Spine Surgery is to treat spinal deformity, spinal infections, trauma, spine tumors and in some conditions slipped disk. The surgeon moves muscle and soft tissue aside to gain access to the bones of the spine and the spinal cord.
Back pain is a common reason people consult their doctor, and in many cases, conservative treatment, including physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications, can bring relief.
However, spinal deformity, spinal infections, trauma, spine tumors and some degenerative spine conditions, such as stenosis and herniated disks, may require surgical treatment. For the best outcome, it makes sense to consult a Back and Spine surgery team with plenty of experience.
The spine surgeon may opt for an open (traditional) spine surgery procedure, which involves an incision along the backbone. The surgeon moves muscle and soft tissue aside to gain access to the bones of the spine and the spinal cord.
Minimally invasive techniques involve a smaller incision and the insertion of a tube, through which the surgeon inserts small surgical instruments to work on the spine. Minimally invasive techniques may be able to shorten recovery time and reduce the risk of complications.
Robotic spine surgery procedures can use GPS-like tracking systems to assist the spine surgeon in extremely precise placement of screws and other hardware in the course of repairing a damaged or deformed spine.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is a type of surgery on the bones of your spine (backbone). This type of surgery uses smaller incisions than standard surgery. This often causes less harm to nearby muscles and other tissues. It can lead to less pain and faster recovery after surgery.
The standard method of spine surgery is called open surgery. This uses a long incision down the back. The muscles and soft tissue around the spine would need to be moved away. In some cases, tissue would need to be removed.
Orthopaedic Surgeon at Shreya Hospital in Ghaziabad may advise spine surgery if you have a type of problem that surgery may help. This includes conditions such as:
- Herniated disc
- (narrowing of the spinal canal) Spinal stenosis
- (scoliosis) Spinal deformities
- Spinal instability
- Spondylolysis (a defect in a part of lower vertebrae)
- Fractured vertebra
- Removal of a tumor in the spine
- Infection in the spine
