Spine and Spinal Deformities Surgery Unit

The Spine and Spinal Deformities Surgery Department treats all spinal deformities both severe and more-typical cases, in younger as well as older patients. For small deformities associated with mild back pain, physical therapy or injections are generally the initial treatment recommendations. As for severe injuries, they may require minimally invasive surgeries or one of the complex surgeries, as well as intraoperative monitoring and navigation to minimize the risk of complications.

The technology that the Hospital provide helps the doctors to optimize treatment outcomes and minimizes the need to return to the operating room for corrective surgery. In addition to that, the surgical ward team has extensive experience in the field of spinal deformity surgery. They have the training and insight to utilize technology appropriately, in ways tailored to the needs of the patient.

In the meantime, the surgical team works closely with their colleagues in related specialties such as a physiotherapist, neurosurgeon and endocrinologists to provide comprehensive care for the full range of spinal deformities.
