The Spine institute led by Neurosurgery team at AIG , delivers comprehensive care related to the spine. Our team of spine experts specialises in restoring and maintaining neurological function, as well as re-establishing optimal biomechanics in the spine.
Complex Cranio vertebral junction anomalies: Congenital, Traumatic, Infective/Inflammatory cranio-vertebral junctions anomalies may cause quadriparesis with trivial trauma, which can be treated with transoral odontoidectomy and posterior fixation or posterior fixation alone.
Degenerative Spine conditions: Many elderly and and working adults suffer from degenerative cervical and lumbar disc diseases which can be managed by conservatively with assistance of well trained physiotherapists who will help in doing isometric neck exercises and back strengthening exercises. Non improving cases can be treated by surgeries like ACDF, posterior decompression and or fixation. Lumbar disc diseases and listhesis can be treated by Minimally invasive spine surgeries and instrumentation with assistance of O arm and navigation. We have dedicated pain clinic services to manage chronic pain conditions with epidural and facetal blocks.
Spinal tumours: Spinal cord tumours like Intra medullary lesions (Astrocytoma, Ependymoma, Haemangioblastomas), extra-medullary lesions (Schwannomas, Neurofibromas, Meningiomas) can be excised safely with the help of intra operative fluorescence technology sophisticated continuous real time neuromonitoring. Primary vertebral lesions like haemangiomas, multiple myeloma's and metastatic vertebral lesions can be treated with excision of lesion and fixation.
Spinal vascular malformations: Spinal AV fistulas and vascular malformations can be treated with endovascular embolisation or surgical excision of the vascular lesions based on individual pathology.
Congenital spinal malformations in children: Developmental anomalies in newborn babies like dysraphic spinal lipomas, ruptured myelomeningoceles, split cord malformations, tethered cord syndromes can be managed with early corrective surgery with intraoperative neuromonitoring so that lower limb weakness and bladder and bowel dysfunction can be avoided.
Traumatic spinal injuries:Complex traumatic cervical fractures like Odontoid fracture, Hangman fractures, Cervical listhesis, dorsal and lumbar spine fractures can be managed with Spinal instrumentation with the assistance of C-arm / O-arm and advance navigation system.
Peripheral nerve surgeries: Brachial plexus injuries can be managed by neurotisation techniques like Oberlin, Somsack, Spinal accessory to supraspinatus nerve transfer. Nerve entrapment syndromes like carpal tunnel and cubital syndromes can be can be managed with endoscopic / open nerve decompression.
Intractable pain following brachial plexus injury and spasticity can be managed with DREZotomy, Spinal cord stimulation can be done for failed back syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, Painful peripheral neuropathies. Baclofen pump insertion done for severe spasticity.
