Spine Surgery is a surgery performed in case of severe back or neck pain. The patient has to opt for spine surgery, particularly when other treatments such as medicines, and physiotherapy fail to relieve chronic pain. Spine surgery is often called back surgery as most of the cases that come under the vicinity of spine surgery are related to the back.
Spine surgery is often advised to patients in whom certain anatomical changes have to lead to back or neck pain and no improvement has been observed even after undergoing various treatments and non-surgical therapies. The main purpose of the surgery is to improve and strengthen the patient’s anatomy and eliminate the reason for the pain in the patient’s back or any other part of the body, which has been affected due to the poor back anatomy.
There are several diseases and conditions associated with the back pain, and the most common are:
- Degenerative Disk Disease
- Muscle strain
- Ligament strain
- Spinal tumor
- Spinal stenosis
- Fractured bones
- Herniated disk

Types of Spine Surgery
Spine surgery is an option if you have a spinal condition that can be physically corrected, such as a herniated disc, but surgery is a necessity when you have a severe spine disease such as a spinal tumor.
Depending upon the seriousness of your spine condition and the type of spinal problem, different surgeries can be suggested to you such as:
Discectomy: Discectomy is the process of removing the portion of the herniated disc that lies between the two vertebrae. The herniated part is the cause of pain and other issues caused by the herniated disc. In a discectomy, the herniated portion is pulled out resulting in the relief in the pressure on the nerves and reduction in the pain.
Laminectomy: This surgery is done to expand the spinal column which has been contracted because of spinal stenosis, causing pressure on the nerves. Laminectomy is a surgical procedure in which lamina: the backside of the spinal canal that covers the spinal cord, is removed. This procedure can also help in treating osteoarthritis by removing bony spurs or bony protrusions.
Spinal Fusion: Spinal fusion is the same as a welding process, in which two or more vertebrae are welded together to form a single vertebra. This surgery is done to eliminate the pain that has been caused by the movement such as lifting, stretching, bending, etc. By integrating the two vertebrae, the movement stops and as a result relief in pain is evident. This surgery is used in the case of infections or tumors in the spine, it can also put a stop to the further increase in spinal deformities, such as scoliosis.
Foraminotomy: Foraminotomy is a surgical procedure used to enlarge the opening in your back where there are nerve roots, at the exit of the spinal canal. This surgery is done when there is shrinkage in the nerve opening, known as foraminal stenosis. Foraminotomy is performed to release the pressure on nerves, during the procedure, the part of the bone and other tissues that are the cause of nerve compression is removed.
