Spine Surgery

Welcome to the Institute of Spine Surgery

Neuroscience is termed as the study of the nervous system of the human body. In neurology, any disorder in the nervous system (either central and peripheral system or both) is diagnosed, treated, and cured. A neurologist handles any disorder regarding blood vessels, coverings, brain, spinal cord, or muscle.

The spine surgery falls under the neurology department. The spinal cord is one of the essential parts of the nervous system, as well as our body. Any damage to the spinal cord or the nerves connected with it will lead to severe disorders. Spinal surgery is carried out to remove the back pain. In this, two or more bones are joined together, or the bone hindering flexible movement is removed. If the pain is caused due to the nerves attached to the spinal cord, then pressure is applied to that part to reduce the pain.
