Our daily activities leave little or no time for our body to relax and heal itself. Improper sitting habits, wrong posture in standing, sudden movements, jerks, or accidents affect our backs the most. Back aches are the most common complaints we hear everyday. While some spine problems go away with proper care, some may require surgery for a permanent solution. Choosing the right treatment is vital and Dheeraj Bojwani Consultants in India provide access to the best spine surgeons, at affordable rates.
Hi. I am Peter from Nigeria. My aunt was suffering from back problems for a long time but we were unable to find any good medical facility in our country. A friend of mine then suggested we consult Dheeraj Bojwani Consultants, through which he had visited India a year ago for medical treatment. We sent them our query received a call the next morning. They were very friendly and receptive and helped us with the visa procedure which is quite commendable. Within a few weeks all the arrangements were made and we were in India for my aunt's Spinal Fusion Surgery in Hyderabad. The hospital staff was very welcoming and everything went very well. The surgery was low cost and was performed by a team of skilled Spine Surgeons. We are grateful towards the team for everything.
Spinal Fusion Surgery is a worldwide performed back surgery procedure in which two or more vertebrae are joined together (fused), so that no individual movement occurs in the operated vertebral levels. The idea of the surgery is to permanently connect the vertebrae to each other. Surgeon may use plates, screws or rods to hold the vertebrae and graft in place to promote healing after spinal fusion. Once the bone graft heals, the vertebrae are permanently connected. This creates a solid piece of bone, rather than a joint that allows movement. This procedure is used primarily to eliminate the pain caused by abnormal motion of the vertebrae by immobilizing the vertebrae themselves.
There have been several studies on the success rate of spinal fusion, and they all give general success rates above ninety percent. This means that ninety percent of the time successful fusion is obtained. Patients can expect a long term solution to most if not all of their back pain problems. It is not a quick fix. A well maintained physical rehabilitation schedule and good nutrition, as recommended by a physician, greatly increase the success rate and time it take to obtain them.

There are different types of Spinal fusion surgery and surgeon may recommend the type of procedure according to the patient’s condition.
In an anterior spinal fusion surgery procedure the intervertebral disc is removed and the vertebrae are fused together via a transverse or vertical incision over the lower abdomen. In this operation, majority of the symptomatic intervertebral disc or discs are removed and replaced with bone. This bone is obtained from the front of the pelvis, usually through the same skin incision. It may be taken as a large piece, but more commonly small pieces of bone are obtained which are then packed into a hollow implant or cage. The block of bone or the cage is then inserted between the vertebrae.
In Postero-lateral spinal fusion surgery procedure an incision is made in the middle of the back and adjacent vertebrae is joined with screws and rods but without interfering with the disc. Small pieces of bone are usually taken from the back of the pelvis, through the same skin incision, and are placed along the back and side of the vertebrae to be fused.
Internal fixation devices generally improve the rate of fusion, but implants of this type are also associated with certain disadvantages and complications and are therefore not always used. When they are used screws, rods or plates can stay in the body forever but in some cases these implants can cause discomfort, irritation of the overlying muscles, become loose, infected or breaks, in which case they may need to be removed.
A combined anterior and posterior fusion surgery procedure is nothing more than performing both an anterior and postero-lateral fusion at the same time, or at least under the same anesthetics. The advantage is that the chance of achieving a fusion and of eliminating the source of symptoms is improved.
Fusion requires a process of healing which is similar to the way broken bones heal.
In most cases, spinal fusion can eliminate the pain and other symptoms. It is important for a surgeon to explain the options, and benefits of spinal fusion surgery. There are many advantages of Spinal fusion surgery such as:
As with any other surgery, there are possibilities for complications but these tend to occur less then one percent of the time. The complications that do arise are the same type as in other surgeries, such as:
The alternatives to spinal fusion surgery are intra-discal electro thermal coagulation, disc replacement, posterior dynamic stabilization and Disc regeneration.
The cost of the Spinal fusion surgery is the major factor that is considered while visiting another country. Low cost is not the only criteria, patient looks for a quality output with low cost. India is proving to be much beneficial for such patients as the cost of the treatment is low without compromising the quality.
In UK the cost of Spinal fusion surgery is around 65000 $, while in India it costs approximately 5500 $.
