Tracks and Sessions

Track 01: Spinal Disorders

The spine is made up of 33 disc bones, called vertebrae, which allows one to stand, bend and provides support to the entire body. The spinal column is further categorized into 5 regions, cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral and coccygeal.  Infections, injuries due to an external force, tumors and other conditions can affect the structure or shape of the spine which puts pressure on the nerves in the surrounding areas of the spine thereby limiting movements of regular activities.

The natural ‘S’ shape of the human spine helps in absorbing external shocks and maintain the balance of the body. As with any other bone/ organ, even spine can be affected by various disorders. These disorders can be congenital, by birth, accidents, and injuries, or naturally due to age. Some common spinal disorders are:

Swayback- Abnormal curve of the lumbar spine called lordosis, Hunchback- abnormal curve of the thoracic spine called kyphosis, Abnormal spinal curve in the sides, called scoliosis, Kyphoscoliosis, a condition where the spine is affected with both- the kyphosis and scoliosis, Spina bifida, Spondylolisthesis, Spinal disc herniation, Spinal stenosis, Coccydynia, and Spinal cord injury are other common spinal disorders.

Track 02: Spine Surgical Procedures

Spinal issues are most commonly dealt with exercises, physiotherapies, medicines, and massages. Only when all these methods of treatment fail and spinal disorders turn severe and chronic, then the surgeons proceed towards spinal surgeries. Spinal surgery is of 6 types- Foraminotomy, Laminectomy, Laminotomy, Disc replacement, Spine Fusion, and Discectomy. Approaches towards spinal surgery are Anterior, Posterior and Lateral. Sometimes, a Decompression procedure is also performed to help patients relieve their back pains. As with the orthopedic surgeries, spinal surgeries require plates, rods, bone screws, and inter-body devices, viz., interbody cage, Interspinous process devices, and Pedicle screws to stabilize the spine until the spinal fusion solidifies properly. CT Scans or intra-operative fluoroscopy is commonly used for imaging during surgical procedures. Most of the spinal surgeries are open surgeries, as not all patients are eligible candidates for Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery. Risks while having a spinal surgery are Bleeding, Infection, Blood clots, Heart attack/Stroke, Herniated disk, Nerve damage, causing pain, paralysis, sexual dysfunction, loss of bowel and/or bladder control.

Track 03: Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is a surgery of spine using smaller incisions causing less harm to muscles and tissues and is a less painful procedure while giving faster recovery. The surgeon while performing the surgery uses an operating microscope while viewing real-time X-ray images of the spine. Surgeons can use MISS only for some types of spine surgery. These include laminectomy, lumbar discectomy, and spinal fusion. Spinal surgery is advised only in conditions such as- Fractured vertebra, Herniated disc, Infection in the spine, Spinal Deformities, Spinal Instability, Spinal stenosis, Spondylolysis, Tumor in the spine, and degenerative spine conditions.

There are 3 main minimally invasive spine surgery techniques- Mini-open, Tubular and Endoscopic procedures. A mini-open procedure is similar to an open procedure, with fewer risks because the incision is smaller. The advances in visualization during surgery have made this procedure a success. The tubular procedure involves a tubular retractor. The endoscopic procedure uses an endoscope to pass through incisions towards the spine. The incision made is smaller than a key-hole. But, only specialists use spinal endoscopy as it is one of the most advanced techniques.

Track 04: Spinal Neurosurgery

Neurosurgeons and Orthopaedics, both are equally qualified to perform spinal surgery. Neurosurgeons are trained in the fields of Brain, Spine and spinal cord, Nerves and Intracranial and intraspinal vasculature while orthopedics are trained in the treatment of Spinal disorders, Arthritis, Sports injuries, Trauma, Bone tumors, Hand injuries and deformities, and Total joint replacement. Orthopaedic surgeons tend to be better qualified to deal with spinal deformities and other disc/ column related issues like disc replacement, and arthroplasty, while Neurosurgeons deal with intradural surgeries and thecal sac tumors.

Track 05: Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a procedure to relieve pressure on the spinal cord to treat claudication, myelopathy, and spinal radiculopathy. A compression of a single spinal nerve root is radiculopathy. Microdiscectomy is a MISS procedure in which herniated nucleus pulposus is surgically removed to relieve the pressure and to reduce the inflammation around a nerve root. Laminectomy can be performed either through an open surgery or through MISS procedure in which a small portion of the posterior arch of the vertebrae is removed to alleviate the pressure. Laminectomy is commonly performed in the lumbar spine to treat spinal claudication, while in the cervical and thoracic spine, it is used to treat myelopathy. Spinal Decompression Therapy can also be performed non-surgically by stretching the spine, using a traction table to relieve the pains. In spinal decompression, the spine is gently stretched to change the position of the spine through force thereby relieving the pressure from the spinal disks by creating negative pressure.

Track 06: Spinal Fusion

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure to join two or more vertebrae into one, to relieve the back pain due to movement between the two bones. Spinal fusion is of many types, each involving bone grafting – autograft, allograft, or artificial bone substitutes. Besides grafting, hardware instruments, viz., screws, plates, and/ or cages are used to help keep the bones in place while the graft fuses. Complications of spinal fusion include infection, blood loss, and sometimes nerve damage. Spinal Fusion also brings a change in the normal motion of the spine causing stress and pain on the adjacent vertebrae of the fused segments.

Spinal fusion is generally recommended if the back pain is caused by:

  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Fracture
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spine infection
  • Spondylolisthesis

Track 07: Spinal Cancer

Spinal tumors are classified based on the location of the spine. There are several types of tumor of the spinal cord. The most common are Astrocytoma, Chordoma, Ependymoma, Glioma, Meningioma, Neurofibroma, and Schwannoma. The symptoms of spinal cancer can occur either slowly or quickly. One of the most noticeable symptom/ sign of a spinal tumor is the pain, that arises when the tumor pushes on sensitive nerve endings.

The symptoms begin with numbness or tingling sensation in the limbs, clumsiness, weakness, partial paralysis followed by full paralysis. Some common signs of spinal tumors are Pain in the back, neck, arms, and legs, Muscle numbness, Difficulty walking, Loss of sensation, Incontinence and Retention, Paralysis and Spinal Deformities. The three common types of spinal tumors are vertebral column tumors, intradural-extramedullary tumors, and intramedullary tumors.

Spinal cancer/ tumor treatment is done to control the pain that occurs with these tumors, Preserve neurological function, Fix structural instability in the spine, and Remove the tumor. Although the tumor cannot be removed if it adheres to many spinal nerves, in those cases, post-operative radiation therapy and chemotherapy are advised.

Track 08: Spinal Disc Herniation

Spinal disc herniation or a slip disc is the condition where a disc herniates and the inner material leaks triggering back pain due to pressure put on the nerve. In Spinal disc herniation, cartilage disc is damaged thereby causing prolapse. Other symptoms include numbness, tingling sensation, and weakness. The nerve often affected in a spinal disc herniation is the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in the body and runs from the pelvis, through buttocks, and down both legs up to the feet. The pressure applied to this nerve can cause pain in the legs, hips or buttocks. A slipped disc can cause pain not only in the immediate area of the protruding disc but also in the area of the body that is under the control of that nerve. Common factors that can cause disc herniation are- bending awkwardly, awkwardly heavy lifting, sitting for long periods, obesity, weightlifting, accident or external fatal injury.

Treatment usually involves physiotherapy, massage and exercises, and medication. Surgical treatment is considered only in severe cases to release the compressed nerve and remove part of the disc. Sometimes, even though the slip disc is not treated, the pain would recede, because the brain auto-tunes to "turn down the pain-volume" on the pain stimuli. It's essential to keep oneself active if you have a slipped disc. Moving may be difficult to start with, but you should start to move around after resting for a couple of days. Even after you have encountered slip disc to avoid the joints becoming stiff and to speed up the recovery process.

Track 09: Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spinal canal resulting in pressure on the spinal cord thereby causing loss of control of bladder and bowel, and sexual dysfunction. Causes of stenosis include arthritis, external trauma, Paget's disease, scoliosis, spinal tumors, and spondylolisthesis.

It can be classified into the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar stenosis. Treatment includes medications, surgery, and braces apart from regular stretching and strengthening exercises. Common symptoms include discomfort in standing, pain in the shoulder, arm, and hand, Bilateral symptoms, Numbness, Weakness, and Neurological disorders viz., Cervical myelopathy, Pinched nerve, Intermittent neurogenic claudication, paresthesis, Radiculopathy, Cauda equina syndrome, Lower back pain. Causes include aging, thickening of spinal ligaments, Bone spurs, and Intervertebral discs bulging degenerative disc diseases, facet joints break down, fractures of the spine, Cysts on joints, arthritis, and congenital, spinal trauma, and spinal tumors.

Track 10: Laminectomy

Laminectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the lamina, which is a portion of the vertebral bone. A laminectomy is generally performed as a MISS, which helps in tissue-preserving; while the laminotomy is the removal of the entire mid-portion of a particular lamina, either through MISS or open surgery, with the use of tubular retractors and endoscopes.  Laminectomy is used in treating spinal stenosis, which is sometimes followed by spinal fusion if required. Also known as a spinal decompression surgery, laminectomy enlarges the spinal canal to relieve pressure applied to the spinal cord or nerves.

Track 11: Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease, aka DDD, is the natural breakdown of inter-vertebral discs due to daily stress and minor injuries. Despite its name, DDD is not a disease, neither it is progressively degenerative. Rather, spinal discs gradually lose water as the anulus fibrosus weakens and collapses resulting in pressure on the nerves. The water content inside a disc, also known as nucleus pulposus effectively absorbs the external shock it is only when the water content reduces, that the area becomes tender towards pain as the discs tend to get less flexible causing a gradual collapse or stenosis. The indicative symptoms of DDD is a low continuous pain with occasional flare-ups, difficulty in moving neck or back, painful muscle spasms, sharp radiating pains in the shoulder, arms, hips, buttocks, or leg. Imaging tests are done to confirm disc degeneration.

Track 12: Spinal Imaging

Spinal issues are commonly diagnosed through imaging. Spinal imaging modalities are commonly X-Rays, CT and MRI.  X-ray being widely available, quick and inexpensive is used during trauma, intra-operative localizations. However, there is always a difficulty in interpretation and the rates for false-positive results are quite high. Both, the X-Ray and CT are the first imaging modality in trauma patients. MRI is efficient at evaluating soft tissues in the spinal cord, nerve roots, and disks. MRI is the preferred modality in imaging, but due to high costs associated, it is used only in imaging of radiculopathy symptoms, tumors, myelopathy, and the patients with red flags.

Types of Spinal Imaging are:

1. Conventional Diagnostic Imaging

  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Radiographs

2. Image-Guided Procedures

  • Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA)
  • Lumbar Puncture
  •  Myelography

3. Vascular Imaging

  • Ultrasound
  • CT Angiography (CTA)
  • MR Angiography (MRA)
  • Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA)

Track 13: Scoliosis & Kyphosis

A normal and healthy spine is straight up-front and a gentle S side-ways when viewed from in front and has a gentle S-shaped curve when viewed from the side. Scoliosis and Kyphosis are two of the commonly seen spinal deformities.

In scoliosis, the spine rotates and curves itself sideways. It is most commonly seen during growth spurt years and is more common in young girls than in boys. Scoliosis can range from mild to severe, based on the degree of the curvature of spine. It is not painful in most of the cases, but is a psychological issue, wherein the teens suffer from low self-esteem. Although in severe cases, the child may suffer complications such as respiratory difficulties. Spinal braces are commonly used to limit curvatures that are beyond 25 degrees. Surgery is considered only when the braces fail to limit the curvature, as along with the twisting of the spine, the chest, shoulder blade, and ribs and hips are pushed back, thereby creating a hump.

Kyphosis is an exaggerated round curvature of the spine caused by improper posture, osteoporosis, steroids, spine tumors, and fractures. X-rays imaging modality will provide the diagnosis on the extent of the abnormality. Exercises to strengthen the abdomen and stretch the hamstrings are recommended to help with the discomfort, but they cannot help with the correction of the curvature. The following could be noticed in Kyphosis-

  • Round-shouldered appearance
  • Difficulty standing fully straight
  • Pain or aching in the shoulders and back

A surgery is prescribed only if the kyphotic curvature is about 75 degrees, where the doctor straightens and fuses the vertebrae of the segment to stabilize the spine.

Track 14: Post-Surgical Therapy

Spine surgery is a major surgery where the movement of the entire body is affected. Rehabilitation is a crucial part of getting back to daily activities. Alignment, balance, and tuning are essential to bring out the positive effects of the spinal surgery. The first step however, is to control pain immediately as one cannot start physical exercises if the pain is recurrent. The therapist may use ice packs, back arch movements and electrical devices to relive the patients from the pain. Most of the therapists prescribe tailor made exercises according to the individual to help with the patient’s motility and flexibility. Exercise is crucial post-surgical therapy to help eliminate fatigue, avoid re-injury.

Market Analysis Report

Spine surgery is one of the fast-growing surgical techniques and has evolved into one of the major segments of the orthopedic and neurology industries. It forms an inter-linking of the two important segments of healthcare- orthopedics, and neurology and requires the expertise of both the medical fields. The spine surgery global market is categorized into 5 major classifications, viz., fracture treatment products, non-fusion and fusion products, spinal decompression, spine biologics, and vertebral compression.

According to market growth, the current trends of the spinal surgery market are:

  • The growing incidence of spinal disorders
  • Accessibility of minimally invasive spine surgery techniques
  • Major challenges that need addressing are the high surgery costs, fewer numbers of neuro-orthopedics, and easy availability of MISS and other procedures in all health care centers
  • Motion-preservation techniques in non-fusion techniques
