Disc Replacement Surgery For A Better Move Of Tomorrow !!!

Are you uncomfortable with you back?  Fed up with traditional treatments?  Need a change?
The spinal disc acts as a ligament to hold the vertebrae together.  Our spine is made up of these discs. The functions of the spinal disc are to act as shock absorbers in the spine.  They are responsible for holding the vertebrae and spine together.  
Dr. Sai Sudarsan is the best orthopedic doctor solve you back and cervical problem. He provides evidence-based cost-effective quality treatment to the patients.  He is one of the best neurosurgeon available in Hyderabad.  He is known for treating thousand who were suffering from a backache and cervical problems. 
You may be familiar the symptoms.

Symptoms of disc diseases

  1. Lower back pain which is continuous and has lasted more than 6 weeks
  2. Pain that is centered on the lower back, it can also radiate to the hips and legs 
  3. Radiating and burning pain 
  4. Pain is exacerbated by certain movements, particularly bending, twisting or lifting
  5. Numbness and tingling in the legs as well as difficulty to walk
  6. Radiculopathy 
  7. Some spine diseases include Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis, Adult Degenerative Scoliosis, Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease and  Cervical Disc Herniation, Spinal Stenosis, Sciatica, Kyphosis and Brachialgia. 


Include Medications, hot and cold therapies, Cortisone injection and therapies like acupuncture and massage.

As the name suggests, it is minimally invasive and is to cure lumbar stenosis(spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord nerves in the lower back).  This is a short outpatient procedure done using a small incision in the back without anesthesia with the help of an imaging machine and specialized tools.  The doctor will remove the excess ligament tissue and small pieces of bone through the incision. This will restore the space in the spinal canal and decreases the nerve compression.

This treatment is to remove the herniated disc from the spinal canal.  It is a minimally invasive method which makes use of the endoscope and small surgical tools.  Fragments of the spinal disc that causes pressure on the nerve are removed.

Ozone gas is directly injected into the herniated disc, the gas fills the disc and bubbles out through protrusion.  There will a chemical reaction between the gas and the nucleus of the disc.  Hence causes the shrinking of the herniated portion of the disc.  The pressure is relieved and pain disappear

In this procedure, the bones are not removed during the surgery, only reshaping or repositioning of the bones takes place.This surgical method relieves symptoms of spinal stenosis by removing the pressure from the spinal cord in the neck.
You feel free to contact Dr. Sai Sudarsan for any issues related to back problems.  This would definitely the right choice for you.

Dealing with Head Injuries...

Head injuries can be defined as any sort of injuries that occur to the skull, brain, scalp or tissues and blood vessels in the head. They can range from a mild bruise to a complicated brain injury. The treatment and other consequences of head injuries vary depending on its nature and severity.

Causes of head injuries

Head injuries can occur due to various reasons including trauma from accidents, due to powerful blows resulting from falls, physical assault or as a part of sports injuries. In babies, head injuries can occur due to excessive shaking.

Some of the common head injuries include concussions, hematoma, haemorrhage, edema, skull fractures (depressed, diastatic, basilar, and linear) and so on.

Symptoms of head injury

Our head has more blood vessels than any other part of our body and hence injury results in bleeding either internally or externally. The symptoms of head injury may not be grave initially and may vary depending on the injury.

A minor head injury may be characterised by the following symptoms: -
  • A headache or light-headedness
  • Nausea
  • A spinning sensation and mild confusion
  • Ringing in the ears
A severe head injury is often accompanied by symptoms like loss of consciousness, vomiting and seizures, coordination or balance problems, abnormal eye movements, inability to focus, worsening headache, memory loss and mood changes.

Diagnosis and Treatments of head injury

Head injuries can be diagnosed with the help of physical examination, blood tests, CT scans, X-rays, MRI and EEG. These tests help the doctor identify the cause, extent and intensity of the injury. The treatment is decided based on many factors such as the age and medical condition of the patient along with the severity of the injury.

Severe head injuries might warrant surgery to correct and manage blood clots and repair skull fractures. They also help in preventing further brain tissue damages.

Dr. Sai Sudarsan is a pioneer in the field of minimally invasive neurosurgery in Hyderabad, with a world of experience in the field.

There is no need to be in Pain Again

Artificial disc replacement surgery is also known as spine arthroplasty. Currently, artificial disc replacement is available for the neck (cervical) and back (lumbar) spine. Artificial disc replacement is an alternative to the traditional spinal fusion. The degeneration and damage of the discs that cushion the bones of the spine can be increases by the genetics, age, and daily wear and tear of routine activities.  The doctors generally start with the nonsurgical (conservative) medical treatment to treat degenerative disc disease. But, when conservative therapy fails the doctors uses spinal fusion surgical treatment. This process permanently locks two or more spinal vertebrae composed so that they cannot move. But spinal fusion has some drawbacks, such as
  • Loss of flexibility and motion
  • Permanently altered motion features and biomechanics

Artificial disc replacement is better than spinal fusion as it offers a viable, reversible option to the fusion and avoids the accepted flaws of fusion. There is the possibility of reducing damage to adjacent joints and discs by inserting an artificial disc in comparison to performing spinal fusion. Artificial disc replacement permits 
  • Motion preservation
  • Normal distribution of stress along the spine
  • Restoration of pre-degenerative disc height

The technique to install an artificial disc is routine and safe. The material and design of disc is revolutionary and similar to the materials used in knee and hip replacement surgery. The material is designed in such a way that is not harmful or sensitive to the body and skin. Recovery is fast after the surgery and less painful.

Get Effective Treatment For Back Pain

Disc Replacement surgery, also called disc arthroplasty or cervical disc replacement, is one of the latest treatment options for degenerative disc diseases, where the damaged discs are replaced by an artificial disc. Disc replacement surgery helps in restoring full motion capabilities and eliminating pain related to disc injuries or irregularities.

Disc deformities cause excessive pressure on spinal cord and associated nerves which lead to severe pain in the lower back. This can be cured by replacing the concerned disc and restoring the spine structure. Disc arthroplasty helps in re-establishing the normal disc functions. of Disc Replacement Surgery

Disc replacement surgery can be distinguished to different types depending on the extent of replacement carried out. The surgical procedure where the whole disc structure is replaced is called total disc replacement. Here the whole or most of the disc tissues are replaced by an artificial prosthesis.

Disc nucleus replacement involves the replacement of the centre of the disc, also called disc nucleus.

Procedure of Disc Replacement Surgery

The procedure of disc arthroplasty is conducted under general anaesthesia. The deformed disc is removed through an incision made on the neck. The artificial disc is implanted after decompressing the associated nerves. The procedure is comparatively simpler and less painful than other spinal surgeries.

Benefits of Disc Replacement Surgery

The major benefits of the surgery are as follows: -
  • Restores motion and provides relief from pain
  • Does not cause harm to adjoining joints or discs
  • Reduces cervical collar immobilisation
  • Does not require bone grafting
  • Can prevent the accelerated degeneration in the discs
  • Reduces oesophagus irritation and swallowing difficulties
The procedure is not fit for those suffering from conditions like osteoporosis, spinal infections or tumour, spondylolisthesis and so on. It is also not performed in case of pregnancy or on children.

Dr. Sai Sudarsan is a leading and well experienced Endovascular and Micro neurosurgeon in Hyderabad. He is one of the best neurosurgeons in conducting disc replacement surgery in the country.

Get Rid Of Neck Pain...

The neck or cervical spine, which  co ordinates network of nerves, bones joints and muscles from the brain and the spinal cord. The neck has the important role providing support, strength, stability and mobility for the head and it is particularly vulnerable to injury.

Neck injury happens when the muscles and ligaments of the neck are forced to move outside of normal range. Sometimes, sudden jerking of the head, car accidents, sudden falls, sports injury, poor posture, repetitive motions, holding head in unusual position causes neck pain or injury.

Common Causes Neck Pain 

  • Cervical degenerative disc disease
  • Cervical herniated disc
  • Cervical spinal stenosis with myelopathy
  • Cervical foraminal stenosis

Cervical degenerative disc disease causes when the discs gradually lose hydration and the ability to cushion the spine's vertebrae. It can lead to painful irritation of cervical nerve.

Cervical herniated disc is a condition which the cervical disc gets herniated due to the leakage of the jelly like inner layer called nucleus pulpous through a tear in the disc's protective outer layer. This may happen because of an injury or aging.

Cervical spinal stenosis and myelopathy is a condition which causes the narrowing of the spinal canal due to the degeneration of the spine. When the spinal canal narrows and compress the spinal cord ( a large bundle of nerves that runs inside the spinal canal) leads to myelopathy. The symptoms of myelopathy is weakness of arms, hands, legs or feet.

Cervical for aminal stenosis occurs when the foramina (the holes in the vertebral construct) become narrowed, which can cause irritation for the nerve root that runs through it.

Dr Saisudarshan is an experienced and well trained senior consultant in  Micro neurosurgery and Endovascular Neurosurgery based in Star Hospital, Hyderabad. The hospital offers the best  and advanced surgical treatments for all kind of neck problems in Hyderabad at affordable cost.

No More Suffering due to Back Pain

Numbness in the lower back and acute pain in the same area when trying to walk or stand upright are common issues reported by most people. These symptoms may point the finger towards Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.

Minimally Invasive Lumbar Discectomy (MILD) is a method used to treat Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.  Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is a condition in which the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord nerves within. This creates acute pain and one might find numbness on the lower back when standing upright or walking. Thickening of ligament tissues, bulging of vertebral discs or growth of an extra bone may be the reasons. Aging is, however, the most commonly found reason for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.
This is a surgical procedure done with a small incision at the lower back but seldom is anesthesia used. Implants or stitches are also not required for the purpose. The cause for the pain like excess ligament tissue, extra bone, bulging that creates problems with discs are all incised out from the body and it creates instant relief to the patient. The doctor might suggest physical rest for the patient to keep him away from strenuous physical activities.
Though MILD procedure reports very high rate of success, it should be done with utmost care and medical expertise. Dr. Sai Sudarsan is a well trained and an experienced micro and Endo vascular neurosurgeon have successfully carried out many such surgeries with the help of a dedicated team.
