What Is Spine?
The spine is what we generally call the backbone. However, the backbone also consists of the spinal cord, a nerve-filled structure, which is protected by the spine. The spine is composed of many bones, called the vertebrae. The vertebrae are cushioned ‘discs’ which reduce the impact of any external force on the spine. The spine has four segments: cervical vertebrae, thoracic vertebrae, lumbar vertebrae, and sacral vertebrae.
Traumatic forces or bone weakness due to tumour or infection can cause spinal fractures in the vertebrae. In some cases, fractures can result from injury to the structures adjacent to spinal cord i.e. nerve roots, or cauda equina (the grouping of nerve roots at the end of the spinal cord). Such injuries may produce profound neurological deficits. Fractures are diagnosed using a combination of plain films, CT, and MRI (if an underlying spinal cord injury exists).
Spinal Cord Injury
SCI refers to acute, traumatic injury to the spinal cord and the associated neurological deficits after that. Typically, SCI is an aftereffect of trauma and spinal fractures. In rare cases, arteriovenous malformations or thoracic aortic surgery can also cause spinal cord infarct with spinal cord injury. Also, spinal cord injury can strike at any age due to trauma, tumour, or infection. Symptoms of SCI vary depending on the level at which the cord is injured. For instance, loss of motor and sensory function in the arms and legs is witnessed when the cervical spinal cord is injured. Motor and sensory dysfunction in the legs (paraparesis or paraplegia) can be seen when the thoracic or lumbar levels are injured.
The Spine Department at Sunshine Hospitals takes care of all spine and spinal cord related problems – both surgical and non-surgical.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
A traditional open spine surgery is an extremely complicated and, to some extent, a riskier procedure. It also takes more time to recover. Naturally, it’s more painful and requires more medicines and medical support.
As a solution to that, at Sunshine Hospitals, you can opt for a Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS), also known as a key-hole or a pin-hole surgery. For these surgeries, the surgeons make a few small holes and perform the surgery vis those holes only. The latest Minimal Access Spinal Technologies (MAST) assist the doctors to perform a flawless surgery.
A minimally invasive surgery is a popular choice among the patients who take a spine surgery.
