Which are the top hospitals for spine surgery in Bangalore?
A spine surgery hospital should have the latest pieces of equipment for imaging diagnostic tests such as CT scan, MRI, PET scan, myelography, electromyography and many more. The doctors should be highly skilled to have accuracy and precision while performing the surgery. Some the best hospital for spine surgery in Bangalore are listed below:
Several risks might be associated with spinal surgeries such as bleeding, complications related to general anesthesia, infection or injury to the surrounding structures. For example, if the surgeon makes the anterior approach to the spine, structures like trachea, esophagus and the carotid arteries may get affected. Also during spinal surgery, the spinal cord and nerve roots are closely associated. Injury to these structures can cause weakness or numbness.
Spinal stenosis is one of the most common conditions that mainly affects elderly people especially above the age of 60. This involves narrowing of the spinal canal, which may be a result of the bulge in the disc, enlargement of facet joints or thickening of the vertebral ligament. The signs and symptoms include pain, numbness, and weakness which may get aggravated while standing or walking. In such a condition, do visit the best spine hospital in India.

Can smoking cause spine disorders?
Absolutely yes. Smoking causes shrinkage of blood vessels throughout the body. Since the spinal disc already has meager blood supply as compared to the rest of the body. Hence smoking accelerates the process of the degenerative process by reducing the amount of blood and oxygen to the tissues. Moreover, smoking increases the pain perception for those who undergo any treatment. The increased pain perception may cause elevated use of narcotics to control pain and thus resistance to the non-surgical treatment options. Not only this, but the overall success rate of the surgery is also much lesser in smokers than that in non-smokers.
