Spinal Surgery in Turkey : Cost & Reviews

The spine of each person is located under the thorax at the level of the lower back, it is composed of a series of bones called vertebrae. These vertebrae can shrink and cause compression of the spinal cord, causing stenosis of the spinal canal.

To combat this problem, one can use drugs, but in the most serious cases, spinal surgery is the best solution. This surgery is highly recommended in several cases such as: loss of sensation in the arms or legs, acute back pain, loss of bowel or bladder control, which are caused by stenosis.

How it works ?

What are lower Back Surgery techniques ?

The operation is done under general anesthesia and according to the case the surgeon chooses the most suitable surgery technique:

Spinal surgery

Guided by imaging: this technique is strongly recommended in the complex operations of the cervical spine and during the reconstruction of the cranio-vertebral junction (which require a lot of precision). During the procedure, an on-screen imaging system guides the surgeon.

Minimally invasive lower Back Surgery

Can treat degenerative problems, herniated discs and some types of cancers. The main advantage of minimally invasive surgery is that it avoids trauma and tissue damage, so shorter hospital stay compared to other techniques. Despite its advantages, it must always be the last solution to treat acute back pain.

Disc replacement

This is indicated for people who suffer from chronic shoulder and neck pain, and involves placing an artificial disc whose purpose is to stop the movement of certain areas of the spine that are the origin of the pain.

This surgery is relatively new for doctors, which is why a limited number of surgeons have significant experience performed.

Lumbar Spine Surgery in Turkey

Lumbar spine surgery in Turkey is aims to treat compressed nerves in the lumbar spine (lower back). It's only advised when non-surgical procedures haven’t led to any results. The surgery aims to treat symptoms such as pain and paralysis in the legs caused by pressure on the spinal nerves.

When it comes to pain, a surgical procedure can be the best option for many patients. Success rates in our partner clinics in Turkey vary by type of surgery, but they tend to be remarkable.

What does this surgery treat?

Lumbar spine surgery is often used to treat:

  • Spinal stenosis: smallness of a section of the spinal column, which puts the nerves under pressure.
  • A slipped disc and sciatica: when an underlying nerve is pressed by a damaged spinal disc.
  • Spinal injuries: such as a cracking or the puffiness of tissue
  • metastatic spinal cord compression: when the spinal cord or nerves are under the pressure of a cancer.

Types of Lumbar Spine Surgery in Turkey

There are several types of Lumbar Spine Surgery, such as:

  • Laminectomy: a section of bone is removed from 1 of your spinal bones to relieve the affected nerve from the pressure.
  • Discectomy: where a section of the harmed disc is withdrawn to relieve pressure on the nerve.
  • Spinal fusion: where 2 or more spinal bones are joined together with a section of bone to stabilize and fortify the spine

Lumbar decompression is normally carried out under general anesthesia. The whole procedure normally takes one hour, but may take much longer. Depending on the type of the surgery.

After Back Surgery: Complications & Recovery 

Complications

Like many other types of surgeries, spinal surgery can cause some side effects (the doctor discusses these complications with the patient before the operation).

Back surgery can cause pain in the bone graft, infection, complications at the time of anesthesia.

When a surgery is done near the spinal cord, these complications could involve consequent pain and harm and the need for an additional surgery.

What is the Recovery time for lower Back Surgery?

Generally, patients will  be well enough to leave hospital after 1 to 4 postoperative day depending on the type of spinal surgery.

Most people are able to walk alone within the second postoperative day, although it is recommended to avoid  more effortful activities for about 45 days.

It will be possible to return to work after a month, although you may need more time off if your job includes driving for long periods or carrying heavy objects. It would take about two months for full recovery.

However, we must not forget that in most cases the results of this surgery in Turkey are very satisfactory.
