CCPC Lumbar Decompression and Fixation Program


With innovative medical technologies, today’s spinal surgery is not as alarming as it was in the past, because of highly-skilled surgeons and new surgical techniques that are Minimally Invasive procedures, paired with Surgical navigation systems, Robotic-assisted surgery, etc. These techniques have a high level of accuracy, reduce injuries, and cause less blood loss, allowing the patients to have a fast recovery.

  • The advantages of these new surgical technologies play important roles in helping the patients to decide to undergo the surgery.
  • Vejthani Hospital is Thailand’s first hospital to receive CCPC Lumbar Decompression and Fixation Program in 2017 and has recently been granted the 2nd re-accreditation for 2021 – 2024.

Patient Stories

 

 

A 22-year-old patient has been suffering from a curved spine that has caused her back pain for years. After undergoing scoliosis correction surgery, she is living a quality life that she has been longing for.

Health Article – Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine where there is a twist of the spinal cord that puts the bones out of the alignment. It could be a sideways S or C-shaped curve. Scoliosis can be detected both in children and adults. Leaving it untreated may raise the chance of the condition to worsen and affect the quality of the patients’ lives in the long run.

Scoliosis Treatment Technologies

O-arm

The O-Arm is a computed tomography machine that creates 3D X-ray images to increase the effectiveness of the surgery. The machine is designed to meet the needs of the surgical environment. It enhances precisions during surgery, reduces the size of the incision, and blood loss.  This results in a faster recovery after spinal surgery. Most importantly, it diminishes the potential risks of scoliosis surgery. The patient may be in a risk of being paralyzed if the screw is placed in the wrong position.

Navigator

Surgical Navigation Technology is used to guide the surgical procedure in conjunction with the O-arm. Navigator captures the position and direction of all types of devices that doctors use and transforms them into images. Combining them with visual representations of the bones from the O-arm, allows doctors to precisely track the positions of medical instruments and the materials that are inserted during the procedure without the need for open surgery.

Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IOM)

Is a technology that continuously monitors the central nervous system and provides critical information to surgeons about the patients’ neurological system of the spinal cord with Real-Time information. The machine enhances safety and reduces the risk of neurological injury during a complex surgical procedure that cannot be seen with naked eyes. The use of  Intraoperative Neuromonitoring can, therefore, boosts the success rate of the operation.
