What to expect from our
SPINE HOSPITAL DUBAI?
Our specialised orthopedic and spine hospital is equipped with the latest in medical scanning and 3d imaging technology and staffed by a handpicked team of western board-certified medical experts with decades of expertise in the treatment of highly complex spinal issues, back pain and lumbar health.
The spine is the central support structure for the human body, if you stop and think about the role the spine plays you will realise that is keeps each part of the musculoskeletal structure connected, it plays a critical part of health and wellbeing.
At Valiant Clinic & Hospital in Dubai you can expect a world class quality experience in the treatment of the full range of spine conditions, using the most modern technology to provide innovative treatments that treat each patient's individual case with a holistic approach to health, wellbeing and quality of life.
Back pain and spinal cord issues often start with something as simple as a twinge of pain when lifting an object or bending over, and can range to patients who are suffering excruciating back pain.
Life in Dubai tends to make a more sedentary lifestyle more common, and whilst each patient is unique, we find commonalities in risk factors that can help exacerbate spinal issues and pain.
The potential treatments for the back and spinal issues that we diagnose can range from palliative and holistic options such as physiotherapy and strength building exercises for muscles in the back to more drastic solutions such as complex minimally invasive surgical procedures.
The best placed authority to determine the treatment required is a spinal specialist surgeon with decades of experience in treating complex spinal, lumbar, neck and brain issues that range from disorders, tumors to herniated discs and everything in between.
We treat a wide range of spinal problems through conservative therapies such as pain management and physiotherapy-rehabilitation, as well as the most advanced surgical techniques when necessary.
We provide our patients with a tailored, evidence-based treatment plan and rehabilitation program to help them recover as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Our specialist back and spine team, who are part of the orthopedic centre at Valiant Clinic & Hospital in Dubai, diagnose and treat a very wide range of spinal conditions, disorders and injuries, including but not limited to:
We may utilize minimally invasive spinal operations (MISS), microsurgery, spinal fusion, arthroplasty (motion preservation procedures), spinal neuronavigation, and an O-arm for 3D image capture during the surgical process, depending on the circumstance.
The spine is one of the most important parts of the body, when you discuss it or hear it being discussed among physiotherapists, chiropractors, spinal surgeon or doctors you will hear reference to the to five distinct sections, each of which is effectively made up of a column of vertebrae, which appear disc shaped, and are either fused or separated by a thin layer of what is called intravertebral fibrocartilage or vertebral discs, which are likened to a jelly donut, with tougher material on the outside protecting a softer core.
When the outer layer of these discs degenerates, there is nothing left holding the soft part in place, which makes it slip out, which is what we know as a herniated disc. This can cause significant pain if it impinges on a nerve, even going so far as to cause numbness or lack of feeling in a limb or extremity in some cases.
The herniation of the disc can be caused by a multitude of factors, the most common one being general wear and tear caused by increasingly sedentary lifestyles. As we grow older the vertebral discs in the back become more injury prone and brittle, it is crucial to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, paying particular attention to the exercises that target the stabilizing and muscles that support the spine.
If these are ignored, then a simple act of lifting some heavy shopping bags with your back instead of your legs can be the straw that breaks the camels back. Sports and weight lifting are also two common causes that we see frequently,
Other Disc Diseases & Degenerative Disc
Diseases which impact the cervical, Thoracolumbar, sacral and coccygeal region. This leads to pain in the neck, arms, mid and lower back and leg (sciatic pain), and “tail-bone” (coccyx) pain.
Spinal infection is a rare condition in which bacteria, fungi or viral infections affect the spinal tissues, usually carried from other parts of the body.
Spiral stenosis is a more common condition in which the small spinal canal (which contains the nerve roots and spinal cord) becomes compressed.
Spinal deformities come in many shapes and forms, including scoliosis and hyperkyphosis and spinal malformations.
SPINAL TRAUMA TUMOURS & CYSTS
Spinal trauma includes conditions like fractures, instability, dislocations, whilst tumours and cysts can form for a variety of reasons.
