(Thoracic Spine)


Thoracic Laminectomy & Fusion is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the lamina from vertebral bodies to allow access to the compression that is causing pressure on the spinal cord. This procedure is carried out to relieve the pressure on the spinal cord and eliminate any related symptoms. Once the compression is removed, vertebrae may be stabilized with the help of instrumentation. It is a highly effective surgical technique that can provide significant relief for those who suffer from spinal cord compression.


Lateral Thoracic Interbody Fusion (XLIF) is a modern surgical procedure that involves making a small incision on the side of the body to treat spinal disorders. This minimally invasive approach is particularly effective in reducing chronic back or leg pain that has not responded to other treatments such as steroid injections, physical therapy, and pain medication. The procedure is becoming increasingly popular as it enables patients to recover faster and experience fewer complications compared to traditional open surgery.


A Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS) device is a medical implant that is placed beneath the skin and sends a low-level electrical current to the spinal cord. The device uses thin wires to carry the current from a pulse generator to the nerve fibers of the spinal cord. When activated, the SCS stimulates the nerves in the region where the pain is experienced, providing relief to the individual.


Scoliosis is a condition that causes an abnormal curvature of the spine, which can lead to pain and discomfort. Spinal surgery is a treatment option that aims to correct this deformity and stabilize the spine. The ultimate goal of this surgery is to improve the patient’s quality of life by reducing pain, improving mobility, and preventing further progression of the curvature.


In some cases, individuals who have undergone thoracic spine surgery may continue to experience symptoms that impact their daily activities. In such instances, revision surgery may be required to alleviate the discomfort and improve their quality of life.
