Spinal tumors are abnormal growths of tissue found in and around the spine. Tumors in the spine may be primary (begin in the spine) or secondary (metastatic ?move to the spine from other locations). The most common cancers that move to the spine are breast, lung, renal and prostate. Most often cancer that moves to the spine is not fatal, although it can cause pain and compress nerves. Nerves that are compressed can cause weakness or paralysis of the arms or legs. Best Treatment of spine tumors in India is focused on maintaining quality of life. They generally require surgery for excision of the tumour by a neurosurgeon. The excised spinal tumour is then sent for the biopsy to rule out any possibility of malignancy or cancer.
Spinal tumour surgery in India these days are performed using minimally invasive or endoscopic technique which requires lesser number of days in hospital and faster recover. Some people will spend time in an intensive care unit being operated upon for the spinal tumour in India, including those who need support for breathing from a ventilator or special intravenous (IV) medications for blood pressure. Sometimes an ICU is needed just for overnight observation. It is very common to need a cervical collar or other brace after spinal tumour surgery. The brace keeps you from putting stress on the healing muscles and bones. It will allow you to start getting out of bed about a day after spinal tumour surgery. If needed, physical and occupational therapists will also be able to work with you.
At Siddh Hospital all the spine surgeries are being done by our Neurosurgery team which is led by Dr SK Gupta who is one of the most renowned neurosurgeons in India. Dr Ali has been doing endoscopic spine surgeries and minimally invasive spine surgeries which means that a very small incision is given to perform the surgery. In such cases the recovery of the patient is much quicker and the cost is also less. Any spine surgery patient requires extensive rehabilitation after the surgery and our team of physiotherapists make sure that your recovery is as per the schedule. For this the rehab team takes charge of the patient within 24 hours of the surgery and exercises are started even on the patient bed. Within a couple of days the patient is put on feet and made to walk with the help of a walker. The intensity of exercises increase every day till the patient is able to walk and perform all routine functions without any assistance.
