Spinal Surgery, herniated discs, & scoliosis

A Closer Look at Spinal Surgery

Spinal surgery is considered as one of the most complicated surgeries that can be performed on an individual. With many nerves running up, down and through the spine, it is no wonder that spinal surgery is such a delicate and painstaking surgery, not only for the patient, but for the doctor as well.

Spinal surgery is conducted on individuals of all ages. For some, such a surgery may need to be performed as a result of scoliosis, a condition in which there is a curvature of the spine. Often times, a surgery to correct this problem will result in a metal rod placed into the spine. The rod is then facilitated as a “straightening” item in the back to help the spine grow in a normal curvature.

Other individuals may discover that they have herniated discs in the spine. Again, the spine is operated on, and the herniated discs are often fused together (if possible) to create less pinching of the spine and the nerves therein. When herniated discs are present, if aggravated further, they can pinch against a main nerve, or perhaps even sever it, which will result in partial or full paralysis.

Spinal surgery may be mandatory for individuals that are in an emergency situation. There are many Americans every year that have to undergo spinal surgery as a result of being in an accident. There is a lot of weight that is carried on the spine, especially towards the tail bone.

The complications of spinal surgery derive from the nature of the tissue; once a nerve is damaged or severed it cannot be repaired. Unlike other surgical complications, neurosurgical accidents can drastically affect the quality of life of a victim to the point where they no longer function as they could previously.
