Spine Surgery Cost in India
Spine surgery is one of the most complex and complicated medical procedures performed to manage the wide spectrum of spinal diseases and abnormalities of the spine and spinal cord. Spinal surgery is usually performed for following three purposes:
- To reduce deformity
- To stabilize a painful segment
- To decompress the nerves of spinal cord
The cost of spine surgery in India is almost a sixth of the cost of spine surgery in USA, UK or Europe even with finest quality implants, prosthesis and consumables.

There can be several reasons for one to seek spine surgery when other interventions like medications and exercises have not been successful.
Advancing age decreases the proper functioning and mobility of the spine that hinders body's normal functioning. This can be improved with spinal surgery.
Non-surgical interventions such as physiotherapy, medication and exercises are not always successful in alleviating painful symptoms. Spine surgery can be the solution to such patients.
The symptoms of spine problems like mobility limitations and pain can be a great disadvantage to the patients and prevent them from living a normal and happy life. Spinal surgery can relieve these symptoms forever in most cases and give a good quality of life.
In cases of severe injury there is least chance of successful treatment with other methods other than spinal surgery.
Spinal deformities like scoliosis and other such deformities unless treated very early with physiotherapy and braces cannot be corrected without spinal surgery at later stages.
Spinal problems can lead to nerve damage and permanent disability unless the nerve is decompressed and corrected through surgery to relieve the symptoms.
Spinal conditions such as osteoporosis and nerve symptoms worsen with time unless treated properly. Progression can lead to disability, increased symptoms and complete shut-down of organ systems.
Cervical Spine Surgery-Cervical spine surgery is generally performed on an elective basis to treat either the Nerve/spinal cord impingement i.e. decompression surgery or to treat spinal instability, which is fusion surgery. The treatment of cervical spine dysfunctions is mainly done through two procedures - Decompression and Fusion.
Lumbar Spine Surgery-Lumbar spine surgery is indicated for people who have pain that extends (radiates) from the back to the buttocks or back of thigh, pain that interferes with daily activities, weakness of legs or feet, numbness of legs, feet, or toes, loss of bowel of bladder control, had physiotherapeutic & medication input, but that hasn't helped.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery-This technique of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery is regarded ground-breaking, since it successfully treats anomalies of the spinal discs with minimal muscle damage, and less recovery time. The foremost goal of minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) like the conventional surgery, is to stabilize vertebrae and decompress the pinched nerves to ease pain and to eliminate painful symptoms by decreasing the pressure on nerves caused by herniated discs, spinal stenosis, bone spurs or tumours.
Scoliosis Surgery-Scoliosis surgery involves spinal fusion, which is quite successful in stopping the curve from growing. With sophisticated techniques, doctors can straighten the curve to a great extent which improves the patient's appearance and functioning to a great extent. Scoliosis is the lateral curvature in a normal straight spine mostly occurring during the child's growing years. A side view shows convexity in upper back and concavity in lower back though it looks normal from front or back view.
Slipped Disc-The aim of the surgery is to remove the prolapsed part of the disc releasing pressure from the spinal cord. There are various techniques of performing herniated disc surgery. Slipped disc is usually the last stage of degeneration of spine. Surgery is often the last resort and is advised in patients where symptoms have not settled in six weeks of conservative treatment like medication, injections and physiotherapy.
Spinal Fusion-It is a procedure that fuses two or more spinal vertebrae permanently to eradicate the movement between them, thus bringing stability to the vertebral segments and eliminating the pain associated with them. Spinal fusion aligns and stabilizes the spine, maintains the normal disc space between the vertebrae, alleviates pain and prevents damage to the spinal cord and nerves.
