Excellent Outcomes and Affordable Cost is Assured.
Stella Gimba from Kenya shares her experience about Advanced Spine Treatment in India relieved her of back pain and made her life joyful
“Last Year I was unable to walk without assistance and had minimal function of my hands. Six months earlier I began experiencing cramping in my legs. As my symptoms worsened, I saw several specialists and had an MRI and CT scan of my lumbar spine.
The MRI of the cervical spine showed severe spinal cord compression at levels C4 through C7 which resulted in a condition called myelopathy, the cause of my symptoms. The spine surgeon met me and explained in detail what was causing my symptoms and the type of surgery necessary to take pressure off the spinal cord.
Today I can cook simple meals. I can go for morning walk again and take short shopping trips. I’ve had a complete turnaround in my quality of life since the spine surgery in India. Thank you everyone at SafeMedTrip.com.Request a Call Back

Nucleoplasty: A New Advancement for Incision Free Treatment of Herniated or Slipped Disc, Chronic Lower Back Pain and Sciatica
Cervical disc is a piece of specialized tissue that separates the vertebral bones of the spinal column in the neck and Nucleoplasty is an advanced minimally invasive procedure used to reduce disc pressure in patients suffering from discogenic (disc related) backache. During the procedure, an instrument is introduced through a needle and placed into the center of the disc where a series of channels are created to remove tissue from the nucleus.
As pressure is relieved, pain is reduced, consistent with the clinical results of earlier percutaneous discectomy procedures. There is little tissue trauma and recovery times may be improved in many patients. A herniated disc may occur suddenly in an event such as a fall or an accident, or may occur gradually with repetitive straining of the spine.Get Estimate

How is Nucleoplasty Performed?
The procedure is performed in an advanced surgical center with fluoroscopic (x-ray) guidance. Nucleoplasty is done with the patient lying on the stomach. Intravenous sedation is given to help with comfort and relaxation. The skin is cleaned with an antiseptic solution and the back is numbed with a local anesthetic before the procedure is performed. The patient is monitored with an electrocardiogram, blood pressure cuff and blood oxygen-monitoring device.
Treatment Before Procedure
Medical evaluation includes a physical exam. Diagnostic tests such as MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), steroid injection or discography may be conducted to diagnose and locate the symptomatic disc herniation and determine if the procedure is appropriate.
Treatment During The Procedure
Nucleoplasty requires the patient to lie on his/her stomach for the lumbar procedure or back for the cervical procedure. This is typically performed with minimal anesthesia requirements. A small nick is made in the skin near the spine, and a needle is inserted. The decompression device, called a SpineWand, is then inserted through the needle into the disc and activated to remove tissue. The device and the needle are removed and the small nick is covered with a bandage.
Treatment After Procedure
Patients are required to remain for observation for one to two hours after the procedure. Often patients are then released to rest for one to three days with limited sitting or walking.Get Estimate

It is with my deepest gratitude that I write to you today.

He took me around to meet all our dear ones and thanked them as he had got back his wife all hale and hearty. They had all supported my decision to have my surgery done in India under the expert care of Safemedtrip. If I was ever to undergo any operation, it would in India without doubt.Refer a Patient
