We strive to provide each patient and family member with education, support and world-class medical care extending from his first visit until discharge. We are also proud to provide personal services through integrated, team approach taking care of your comfort and well-being along with all other considerations with a goal of outstanding surgical outcomes even for the most complex and difficult cases applying cutting-edge of new, advanced treatment options that were once considered inconceivable, such as minimally invasive orthopaedic and spine surgery.
"Medical Tourism to India" company is a pioneer and one of specialists in the areas of pain management and the latest techniques including minimally invasive and robotic surgeries for orthopedics and spine surgery and first to introduce 3rd generation spinal implants in India. Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS), to major spine surgery procedures like complex spinal reconstructions.
The various procedures we are doing are:
1. Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) Or Spondylosis:
It refers to the gradual deterioration of the disc between the vertebrae. Degenerative disc disease is one of the most common causes of low back pain and neck pain. This disease is very common and mostly affects the lumbar spine (low back), and affects as much as 40-50% of people over the age of 40.
Cervical and Lumbar spondylosis
is a very common condition where there is chronic degeneration of the cervical spines and discs between the vertebrae. This is managed by cervical spine surgery in deteriorated discs or bone spurs are removed and sometimes the gap would be filled by a graft of bone or other implants made of metal combined with bone Fusion surgery which stops the motion of the spine at the level of the degenerated disc. This helps to relieve pain. When joint movement within the spine is contributing to pain, fusing the vertebrae together stops the motion, with the intent of removing the pain. Fusion surgery works best when limited to one or two discs. As we have five discs in the lumbar spine, the un-fused discs take over to provide adequate function of the lower back.An artificial disc can also be inserted into the disc space after removing the entire degenerated disc. Artificial disc replacement surgery involves replacing a painful disc with an artificial.
2. Slipped (Herniated) Disk
In this the soft inner portion of the disk protrudes through the outer ring which may compresse any of your spinal nerves.Slipped disks are more common in older adults.
Slipped disc is a common term used to refer to a prolapsed disc. This is a disorder when the inner, softer part of the disc bulges out through a weakness in the outer part of the disc. Your doctor may recommend surgery if your symptoms do not subside with conservative treatment in six weeks or if your slipped disk is affecting your muscle function.
Two Types Of Surgeries Are Done:
Keyhole surgery or microdiscectomy spine surgery,
is performed when there is a prolapsed disc in the lumbar region. Surgeon remove the damaged or protruding portion of the disk without removing the entire disk.
In more severe cases, your doctor may replace the disk with an artificial one or remove the disk and fuse your vertebrae together. This procedure, along with a laminectomy and spinal fusion, adds stability to your spinal. Artificial discs are usually made of metal or plastic-like (biopolymer) materials, or a combination of the two.
3. Spinal Tumors
We use high-powered microscopes in this surgery to help remove even delicately placed intradural tumors. Total Spondylectomy - removal of the entire vertebra is done as a definitive cure for some spinal tumors.
4. Spinal Injuries
Injured vertebrae stabilized by combination of metal screws, rods and plates may be necessary until the bones heal. After surgery patients undergo a rehabilitation program. Our spine surgeons can even perform very complex spinal surgeries using minimally invasive techniques as we are equipped with world class infrastructure & state of art cutting-edge Medical Technology such as EEG, ENMG, and Video-monitoring, PET scanning, 3 Tesla MRI and 256 Slice CT Scan: latest 64-slice CT scan and 1.5 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) ,latest neuromonitoring technology for safe spine surgery,state-of-the-art high magnification microscope,computer navigation for spine surgery,facility for performing minimally invasive spine surgery, endoscope for minimally invasive spine surgery ,cell savers to reduce the need for blood transfusion,ultrasonic bone scalpel (for safety while working around delicate nerves and spinal cord) being at par with US, UK and other European countries.
Our spine surgery hospitals work according to the international benchmark set by the global medical fraternity, where in they maintain a high level of medical services protocols of quality and ambience and follow the stringent rules of maintaining quality and backed by the most comprehensive neuro-diagnostic and imaging facilities .
Spinal Procedures We Performe Include:
Microdiscectomy. Laminectomy. Lumbar Fusion. Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery. Endoscopic Spine Surgery. Craniovertebral Spine Surgery. Total Disc Replacement. Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty.
1. Knee replacement
We are using the most advanced prostheses including the hi-flex knee which offers 150 degree flexion and Special anaesthetic techniques. We are doing computer-navigated total knee replacement, and minimally-invasive total knee replacement, where patients are put on a Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) machine, It can be a total or partial replacement, depending on how much the joint has deteriorated. All surgeries are performed using minimally-invasive techniques and patients can walk within hours after their surgeries with walkers ,they are encouraged to walk of their own the day after surgery and are discharged 2 to 3 days after surgery
india is a great option for quality orthopaedic surgery as knee replacement in India is done by placement of the FDA approved American implants using most advanced technology and the implants last for life. A total stay of 7-10 days in India is required . Now , with advanced technology and improved techniques of the surgery, we can operate both knees at the same time. The cost of knee replacement in India starts from USD 2500 and varies with various factors.
Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement
The minimally invasive knee replacement is less invasive performed using smaller incision and the implants are placed using specially designed surgical equipment .This technique is less invasive as damage and disruption of the adjacent structures is less due to which there is less postoperative pain and scars resulting in early recovery.
Computer Navigated Total Knee Replacement
Computer navigation Knee Replacement using NAV3 technology is the newest , most exciting. the most advanced , revolutionary and innovative surgical procedure in India with great success. This technique improves the accuracy of the prosthetic implantation further minimizing bleeding , pain and scarring resulting in faster recovery ..
2. Hip Replacement
Total hip replacement: Hip replacement is the tested and proven operation in elderly patients over 60 years femoral neck fracture in this age group. the golden standard for hip arthritis in patients older than 60 years advanced hip destruction & altered anatomy of the hip.
Birmingham Hip Resurfacing Hip (also called hip arthroplasty)
involves replacing the damaged surfaces of the hip joint with metal implants to improve mobility and reduce pain in the hip joint. . Our hospitals are global referral centre for revision surgeries of the hip which is a much more complex procedure than a regular replacement
