Back Pain – Treatment For It?

Back Pain is one of the most common medical problems. Acute back pain comes on suddenly and usually last from few days to few weeks. If back pain last for more than 3 months then it is called as chronic back pain.

The types of surgery is decided by surgeons after thorough assessment and may decide amongst the following:

Anterior Cervical Discectomy:

Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion is a surgical procedure performed to treat a damaged disc in the neck area of your spine. Discectomy literally means “Cutting out of Disc”

Cervical Corpectomy:

Cervical corpectomy is an operation to remove portion of the vertebra and adjacent intervertebral discs for decompression of the cervical spinal cords and spinal nerves. A bone graft with or without metal plate & screw is used to reconstruct the spine and provide stability.


Ootomy is the medical term for making an opening. A formiotomy makes the foremen larger and relieves nerve compression. The opening in between the vertebra is called neuroformanin. When this opening is reduced due to a spinal problems or injury, there is less room for the nerves to pass between the bone.


It is the procedure intended to receive pressure on the spinal cord from the existing nerve root and spinal cord. Increases the amount of space available for the neural tissue and thus releases the nerves.


In Microdiscectomy surgery, a small portion of the bone over the nerve root and or disc material from under the nerve root is removed to relieve neural impingement and provide more room for the nerve to heat.


The portion of the vertebra known as the lamina is removed along with any thickened ligaments to release the nerves traveling down the centre of spinal cord.

Spine procedures completely depend on the spine conditions and the decision is to be made between you and your doctors.
