About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Spinal Surgery at the Primus Super Speciality Hospital New Delhi provides the full service range for the diagnostics, conservative and surgical treatment of spinal diseases. To provide comprehensive medical care and rehabilitation, the department has the best specialists, advanced medical equipment and infrastructure. If surgical treatment is necessary, minimally invasive surgery is preferred. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Arvind Jayaswal.
The department's doctors apply a wide range of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, for example, spinal puncture, nerve root block, facet joint block, and other various CT-guided procedures. In addition, the department's surgeons have extensive experience in minimally invasive spinal surgery, for example, they successfully perform vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty in spinal fractures, minimally invasive spinal fusion, percutaneous transpedicular fixation, microscopic/endoscopic discectomy and microscopic decompression in lumbar spine pathologies. The spectrum is complemented by other extensive surgical interventions on the spine, for example, intervertebral disc replacement, treatment of cervical myelopathy, correction of spinal deformities (scoliosis and kyphosis), treatment of spinal fractures, interventions to remove spinal tumors, etc. During the surgical treatment, the doctors widely apply the real-time intraoperative neuromonitoring. This is the very latest technology, which helps to reduce the risk of postoperative paralysis and nerve damage during complex spinal operations.
The experienced physiotherapists of the department offer many exercise programs for the treatment or rehabilitation. The department is one of the few centers throughout the country, which provides the full service range for the correction of spinal deformities in scoliosis and kyphosis in patients of all age groups. The treatment methods range from conventional scoliosis correction procedures for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis/congenital scoliosis to the very latest therapies, such as the use of a magnetic rod for the treatment of scoliosis at the initial stages (in young children).
The department's range of medical services includes:
- Spinal fracture fixation
- Minimally invasive/open surgical techniques
- Comprehensive treatment of back pains
- Open/minimally invasive fusion and non-fusion surgeries
- Spinal blocks
- Complex spinal deformity correction (under continuous neuromonitoring)
