Most people think that spine surgery is very complicated and one will get bed ridden and one cannot get back to normal activties. This is a myth. Spine surgery is safe. Complications occur only in about 1 or 2% of patients. Many of the spinal surgeries can now be done through minimally invasive methods. A patient who has undergone a spine surgery gets back to normal life. Failure to get back to normal is extremely rare. Get help before problem advances. Never keep spine surgery as last resort.
Dr. G. Balamurali, Spine and Neuro Surgeon at Kauvery Hospital, talks about the myths of spinal surgery.
