As with orthopaedic surgery, spine surgery is an elective surgery which aims to improve the quality of the daily life of the patient. In general this type of surgery is expensive and is not covered by some European and American Healthcare systems.
When considering spinal surgery, important considerations for the international patient are quality, the credentials and expertise of the doctors and surgeons, surgical facilities, post-operative care, etc.
The Orthopaedic Surgery, Traumatology and Sports Medicine Unit at Our Hospitals offer its patients the best and most up-to-date techniques for treating any type of affection of the musculoskeletal system:
• Innovative techniques in regenerative medicine,
• Minimally invasive surgery (MIS),
• Percutaneous, arthroscopic and prosthetic interventions
The most sought after spine surgery are the laminectomy, the arthroplasty of intervertebral disc, and the spinal fusion.
Spinal surgery requires a change in daily life for several weeks; rehabilitation begins on the first day after the surgery. The Physiotherapy Centre at Our Hospitals has a team of professionals specialized in different areas of rehabilitation that work closely with the medical traumatology team. The physiotherapy work at our Hospitals starts during the preoperative process to shorten recovery times and to ensure that daily activities are resumed as quickly as possible.
