Spine Surgery for Trauma
Accidents can occur anyday and at any time; and most of them may involve the spine and spinal cord. These result in significant neurological injury that leads to paralysis, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and in some terrible cases, quadriplegia.
Injury to the spinal cord can cause permanent sensory and motor dysfunction, such as the inability to use the arms or legs. Recovery from a complete spinal cord injury is very rare, leaving most patients with significant permanent disability. Spinal cord injury is often associated with spinal instability or spinal fractures that require specialized expertise for operative fixation
The goals of treatment in managing spine trauma are prevention of neurological injury, providing stability to the spine, and correcting post-traumatic deformity. Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) techniques are an alternative to open spine surgery for treatment of spine fractures.
We are able to provide these spectrum of surgical services involving the spine with excellent outcomes.
