Specialized surgical procedures

Surgery is not necessarily recommended for all spinal conditions and it is only recommended when no operative measures have been tried and are unsuccessful. Surgery is usually set aside for a condition in which a nerve or the spinal cord is compacted and neurological function is compromised, or if the spine has become unstable due to disease. Your physician may recommend surgery if you have neck or back pain, with or without neurologic compromise. However neurologic participation may result in pain that releases down your legs or arms, causing numbness, weakness or tingling in your arms or legs and even loss of bladder or bowel control.

When surgery is required for back and neck ailments it is important that you receive care from a highly trained and certified spinal surgeon. At Montreal International Clinic, our surgeons are leaders in spinal surgery and we offer the highest level of proficiency in a collection of cultured spinal treatment of many conditions.

3What causes neck and back pain?

Back pain could have one or more of quite a few direct causes. Frequently back pain is caused by a type of comprehensive arthritis identified as spondylosis. Chronic degenerative changes as well as sudden trauma can add stresses on the joints of the neck and back that will cause pain. Certain joint pains in the neck and back often feels stiff and is often worse in the morning and with inactivity. It could possibly improve throughout the day as the joints "stretch". Anti-inflammatory pain medicines and muscle relaxers often help minimize the pain. There is a chance that this type of back pain may not improve with surgery subject to its connection with pain in the legs.

Back pain could also be due to collapse of the intervertebral discs and irregular motion in the spine. An extreme instance would be an acute trauma with a ruptured spine and spinal unsteadiness. Deteriorating changes over time can also lead to irregular motion. This type of back pain is often accompanied with pain in the arms or legs caused by pressure on the nerves, and therefore this type of back pain may benefit from surgery.

4I am experiencing back pain; will I need surgery?
The most frequent causes of back pain are due to overwrought muscles and do not require any surgery. It usually heals over time with much needed rest. There is a time when physical therapy is needed which is on a less frequent basis. Depending on your current symptoms, physical examination results and scan reports, you may or may not require surgery to heal quickly. Conventional management must be improved, then based on healing process if there is no improvement, surgery could be considered.
5Do I need both MRI , CT scans and X-RAYs?
An MRI study is done first as it does not involve radiation and it provides detailed information concerning soft tissues (nerves, muscles etc.) of the spine. On the other hand, CT scan studies are best at demonstrating bone and related disease. Therefore, often the two tests are required when a spinal operation is being planned.X-rays provide an overview of the bones of the spine. X-rays can certify the spine’s stability and is also important prior to any spinal surgery.
6How do you treat ruptured or herniated discs?
Our surgeons operate to remove the disc fragments to leave more space for the spinal cord or nerves. The next step is to take out all the soft disc material that is pinching the nerve root or spinal cord. If you have an injured cervical disc, our surgeons evaluate the need for discectomy or replacement. As we offer both treatments, we can assist you to choose the most appropriate treatment option based on your individual circumstance.
7When are lower back (lumbar) fusions necessary?
Lumbar spinal fusion is surgery to join two or more vertebrae in the low back.Spinal fusion usually lasts several hours and is categorized as a major surgery. It is usually identified If there is too much motion at a lumbar spinal level, every time the patient moves, the nerve tissue can be briefly compressed resulting in severe pain and brief or permanent neurological injury. When the pressure is taken off ,spinal fusion may be required.
8Which type of surgery has a greater success rate?
At present research related to the long-term results of minimally invasive spinal surgery are limited. These assessments are currently ongoing. However, the short term success of minimally invasive spine surgery has been well established. It has come to light that minimally invasive surgery allows a faster recovery and return to daily events and exercise/sporting activities. There is less post-operative discomfort and shorter hospital stay following surgery. At Montreal International Clinics, we guarantee our patient’s safety as we provide the best service, caring for success in treatments provided.
9How long will I be in the hospital and how long is recovery time?

The length of the surgery and recovery time depends on the type of procedure you undergo. Our surgeons will provide you with the information prior to surgery. The length of surgery will depend on what type of procedure you have as well as your condition before surgery. Our surgeons will review your treatment and recovery plan with you.

Recovery time depends on the kind of procedure and condition, the patient's age, and health status before the surgery. You may feel some soreness around the area of the incision post-surgery. You will not be able to perform heavy lifting, exercise or activities for a few weeks.

10What are the risks associated with brain or spine surgery?
Every surgery is associated with risks. However, in the hands of our well-trained, dedicated and certified neurosurgeon, these risks are quite small. The risks include weakness, numbness, bleeding, paralysis, spinal fluid leakage, difficulties in wound healing, incision infections, and complications due to other existing ailments such as: diabetes, hypertension, persistent pain, and failure to fuse.
