Percutaneous Screw Fixation In Gurgaon
It is a minimally invasive surgical approach that uses relatively tiny skin incisions. It is a specific technique that surgeons can use to implant metal rods and screws to stabilise your spine. Percutaneous screw fixation is a particular technique performed without a traditional large incision and is used during a spinal fusion procedure. Instead, the rods and screws are inserted through a few small incisions and using these small incisions, and the surgeon implants screws into the pedicles, which are anatomic tubes of bones that connect the front and back of the vertebrae.
Percutaneous pedicle fixation is ideally performed as a part of spinal fusion surgery. The transplanted bone is used to encourage two or more vertebrae to unite in your bone for more stability in the spine. For example, fusion and fixation might be performed to relieve pain pause due to degenerative spinal conditions, stabilise the spine after trauma, and treat instability due to tumour or infection to correct a spinal deformity.
Dr Sk Rajan performs the fixation under general anaesthesia, which means you will be unconscious during the surgery. First, the doctor will make tiny incisions on your back on either side of the spinal column. Then they will insert the screw guided by the X-ray technique known as fluoroscopy or intraoperative navigation system that relies on X-ray or computed tomography images. As per the latest technology, robotic assistance is also available to improve accuracy. Lastly, the roads will be inserted into the unique slots at the screw heads that will be locked into place. The surgical instruments are then removed, and the incisions are closed with one or two sutures.
