Spine care

The brain and spinal cord together form the central nervous system. This complex system is part of everything we do. It controls the things we choose to do, thus a small disorder can be of grave danger to one's life. The spine can be affected by various pathologies, due to its complex anatomical structure and close relation to the spinal cord and the nervous system. Spine care treatment is not aimed at simply primary pathology such as infections or tumours but also towards the preservation and recovery of the spinal cord and nerves. It is also aimed at minimizing injury to overlying spinal muscles and decreasing blood loss. Minimally invasive spinal surgery can achieve this using small incisions, special retractors – microscopic and spinal endoscopic – intra-operative image guidance and neuro navigation.

The Department of Spine Care at Wockhardt Hospitals is equipped with the highest quality of technology, offering comprehensive services in all aspects of diagnosis, management and rehabilitation of patients with neurological and neurosurgical disorders.
