What are the Spine Surgery Procedures?

Neurosurgeons specialize in surgical diseases of the brain, skull, spine, spinal cord and peripheral nerves.

Spine and spinal cord surgeries

In spine and spinal cord surgery, minimally invasive methods and microsurgical methods are generally used for cervical, dorsal, lumbar herniated discs and narrow canal diseases. While general anesthesia is used here, local anesthesia can also be used in some cases. Titanium implants may need to be placed in the spine in cases of slipped back, scoliosis and spinal trauma. In spinal fractures due to osteoporosis, which are usually seen in older adults, there is a method of filling cement into the spine with closed surgery. Spinal tumors may also require microsurgery and complex surgery. For spasticity and pain that may occur after spinal cord injury, various pumps or spinal cord stimulation electrods can be placed on the spinal cord.

Peripheral nerve surgery

Carpal tunnel, ulnar tunnel and peroneal nerve compression can cause pain, numbness and paralysis in the hands, arms and feet. These pinched nerves can be relieved with microsurgical methods. These procedures are usually performed under local anesthesia.
