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

Objective of the Kyphoplasty Procedure
Kyphoplasty is a procedure used to restore the strength and height of a collapsed or fractured vertebra by infusing bone cement in the affected vertebra. It is mainly indicated in elderly patients suffering from weak and brittle bones due to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease of the old age in which the bones become weak and brittle due to lack of calcium and are vulnerable to fractures even with trivial trauma. The vertebral column is most susceptible to such osteoporotic fractures as it bears the entire weight of the upper body while doing any small or big task. The aim of Kyphoplasty is to reduce the pain of fractured vertebra, to reinforce the weakened bone and to restore normal vertebral height.
The vertebral column consists of 33 small bones called vertebra. Each vertebra has a basic structure comprising of a body anteriorly (in front) and a vertebral arch posteriorly (behind). The vertebral arch consists of two transverse processes that project sideways, two pedicles (flat bone between body and transverse process), lamina (flat arched bone between the transverse process and the spinous process) and the spinous process (backward projection). The vertebral arch encloses the spinal canal which lodges the spinal cord.Get Estimate
Details of the Kyphoplasty procedure
It is also known as Balloon Kyphoplasty. It is a minimally invasive procedure which takes just over an hour to be performed, hence can be done on an inpatient or outpatient basis. The patient may be sedated under general or local anaesthesia depending on his/her medical condition.
The patient is made o lie down on his abdomen. During the surgery, a small incision is made in the midline on the back, through which the doctor places a narrow tube. Using fluoroscopy to guide it to the correct position, the tube creates a path through the back into the fractured area through the pedicle of the involved vertebrae.
Using X-ray images the doctor inserts a special balloon through the tube and into the vertebrae, and gently and carefully inflates it. As the balloon inflates, it elevates the fracture, returning the pieces to a more normal position. The balloon is removed and the doctor uses specially designed instruments under low pressure to fill the cavity with a cement-like material called polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). After being injected, the pasty material hardens quickly, reinforcing the weak vertebra.Get Estimate

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