Montreal Neuro Spinal Treatment Process
The goal of neuro spinal surgery is to be minimally invasive. It is a procedure to stabilize spinal joints and vertebral bones and relieve pressure that is applied to spinal nerves. Compared to an open procedure, there are potential benefits of minimally invasive spinal surgery which include the following:
- With skin incisions as small as two centimeters, the cosmetic results are better/
- There is less loss of blood.
- Since no cutting is required the risk of damaging your muscles is reduced.
- Reduced pain and risk of infection.
- Quicker recovery.
- Less rehabilitation.
- Less dependence on pain medication.
Some neuro spinal surgeries can be performed as outpatient procedures. Surgeons will utilize local anesthesia. This means there is less chance of having an adverse reaction during or after the procedure.
What are common spinal conditions that can be treated at Montreal International Clinic?
- Spinal deformities
- Spinal instability/Spinal infections
- Vertebral fractures
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated disc
- Spinal tumours to name a few
How does surgery work?
Because the vertebra, spinal nerves and disc are situated deep inside your body, some muscle tissue may need to be moved out of the way just to gain access to the area. A small incision is made to the particular area in your spine using a microscopic video camera to guide the instrument through. It is a delicate process, but one that our highly qualified and trained neurosurgeons are competent to do. We guarantee you are in safe hands.
How can stem cells or PRP treatment help?
By using cells from your own body, stem cell and PRP treatments distinguish themselves from other treatments. These treatments are non invasive and use platelets from your own blood samples to heal you. The treatment begins with a consultation with our physicians. Along with a physical exam imaging diagnostics may be recommended. Once the case is diagnosed, and the stem cell or PRP treatment is deemed to be suitable we begin by collecting a small blood sample. The platelets in the blood sample are then activated and centrifuged by our technicians. Once ready, the stem cells can be injected into the target area requiring the healing. The healing begins almost instantaneously and you can feel the pain relief begin over the area. Over the coming days and weeks it will continue to get better. Your physician may advise a course of 2-6 stem cell treatments depending on factors such as the area of treatment and the extent of damage.
