Take care of the spine: its injuries can lead to spinal cord injuries


Spine injuries are:

  • complicated, in which the spinal cord and its roots are compressed;

  • uncomplicated - with a fracture of bone structures, compression does not occur.

The most common injuries are the lower cervical spine and the thoracolumbar junction.

Operations for spinal injuries can be accompanied by:

  • additional stabilization by introducing bone cement into a fractured vertebra or installing transpedicular screws at an injured level;

  • removal of bone structures that compress the spinal cord or roots;

  • the use of special implants that prosthetic the vertebral bodies and, thereby, preserve its supporting function.

All this requires high qualifications, competence and mutual understanding of the entire team that prepares the patient for the operation, conducts it and guides the patient during rehabilitation.

In JSC "Medicine" (the clinic of Academician Roitberg) such operations are carried out under the guidance of an experienced neurosurgeon, one of the leading spinal neurosurgeons in Russia, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor, laureate of the RF Government Prize - Nikolai Aleksandrovich Konovalov.

  • Modern technologies and advanced equipment make it possible to carry out the operation with the least damage to the surrounding tissues and achieve the maximum effect.

  • International quality standards of medical care JCI (Joint Commission International - Joint International Commission), applied in JSC "Medicine" (Academician Roitberg's clinic), minimize the risk of complications.
