Here, we provide an in-depth look at spinal fusion surgeries, the expertise of Professor Dr. Yousry El-Hamili, and how he and his outstanding team can assist you on your path to recovery.

What are Spinal Fusion Surgeries?

Spinal fusion surgeries are surgical procedures used to treat acute injuries. The surgery involves removing bone fragments and restoring the balance of the vertebrae. Spinal stabilization is essential in treating acute injuries, aiming to restore stability and reduce the risk of potential complications. This is typically achieved using medical devices such as screws and surgical plates to support and stabilize the spine properly.

Indications for Spinal Fusion Surgeries

Indications for spinal fusion surgeries include various injuries and conditions such as:

  • Injuries from car accidents or sports injuries.
  • Injuries from falls from heights, causing spinal compression fractures and other issues.
  • Degenerative conditions like lateral sclerosis and bulging discs.
  • Vertebral fractures due to bone loss from osteoporosis.
  • Spondylolisthesis.
  • Vertebral tumors.

How Spinal Fusion Surgery is Performed

Professor Dr. Yousry El-Hamili notes that spinal fusion surgeries typically involve various surgical procedures depending on the patient’s condition. Generally, the surgery includes the following steps:

  1. Stabilizing the Vertebrae: The surgeon uses different devices such as surface screws and surgical plates to connect the dorsal vertebrae.
  2. Accessing the Spine: An incision is made in the spine to access the affected area needing stabilization.
  3. Removing Damaged Parts: Before placing the devices, the surgeon removes damaged or adhered parts to relieve pressure on the nerves and alleviate pain.
  4. Placing Bone Grafts: Bone grafts are placed at the appropriate site for stabilization, secured with rods, screws, and surgical plates until they integrate with the patient’s natural bone.
  5. Closing the Incision: The wound is carefully closed, bandaged, and the healing process begins.

This surgical procedure is performed under general anesthesia and requires a period of rest and rehabilitation post-operation. The medical team guides the patient through a tailored rehabilitation program to help regain strength and mobility.

Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion Surgery

Minimally invasive spinal fusion surgery is a safe and effective option for most spinal conditions. It involves:

  1. Small Skin Incisions: The procedure is performed through small incisions without damaging or cutting the surrounding muscles.
  2. Guidance with X-ray: The surgeon is guided throughout the procedure by X-rays and uses expanders to access the spine between the muscles without cutting them.
  3. Maintaining Distance: Special tools are used to maintain the expanded space during the surgery.
  4. Placing Bone Grafts: Bone grafts are placed to stabilize the spinal vertebrae without intensive surgical intervention.
