Our entire body relies on our spine, and yet, it is taken so lightly. Spinal deformities are a taboo in our society but Dr Ajay Kothari tells us otherwise. In today’s episode of doctor diaries, he enlightens us all about the spine orthopaedics.


Sancheti has different types of spine surgery and treatments available for various conditions and injuries. It would be best to speak with your orthopaedic surgeon about the best action to lessen or eliminate your back pain. Doctors will first try to treat your discomfort or crippling back troubles with minimally invasive procedures like pain block injections. If none work, your orthopaedic surgeon may recommend invasive spine surgery. Here are a few types of spine surgery:

  • Lumbar Decompression
  • Lumbar Discectomy
  • Herniated disc surgery
  • Spinal Fusion surgery

Spinal decompression and fusion are the most common spine operation performed in Sancheti Hospital by spine specialists. It takes the pressure off “pinched” nerves, the spinal cord, or both and stabilizes the spine.
