City-based doctors cured a neck injury of a 22-year-old gymnast, who was injured after he fell on his neck during a routine practice session recently As per doctors, the patient had dislocated his 4th cervical vertebra, which had gone unnoticed until the patient started complaining of neck stiffness and pain. Dr. Pradyumna Pai Raiturkar, the Spine Surgeon at Saishree Hospital, who treated the gymnast, said that the x-rays of the neck region helped diagnose his condition. "Fractures or dislocations around this region of the spine are either fatal or can cause partial to complete paralysis of all limbs. Luckily the patient did not suffer any injury to the spinal cord in such condition," added Raiturkar Speaking on the surgery technique, Raiturkar said that Crutchfield tongs, which consist of two pins, were used to relocate the vertebra. The pins of the tongs were inserted in the skull bone of the gymnast. The pins are attached to a pulley and with gradual traction, the vertebra is relocated. The process requires timely monitoring and hence portable x-rays were used in the process at every 30 minutes, which helped us gradually in the relocation," added Raiturkar The doctor highlighted a similar case of a 20-year-old wrestler from Kolhapur, who succumbed to a similar injury as it was not treated in time. "The wrestler had landed on his neck during a knock-out and had
damaged his neck and spinal cord," added Raiturkar Dr. Ketan Deshpande Spine Surgeon, Sai Shree Hospital, said a high index of suspicion is necessary in diagnosing such cases. "Lack of knowledge may prompt the patient to opt for a neck massage or manipulation, which could be devastating in such hidden injuries," said Deshpande.
Dr. Neeraj Adkar, Director, and Joint Replacement Surgeon, Saishree Hospital, said that the gymnast was later taken for open surgery, where the dislocated vertebrae were fused together using a bone graft, plates, and screws. "Prompt diagnosis and treatment helped the patient in successful treatment. The patient was mobilized on the next day and was also discharged immediately" said Adkar

A 40-year-old ordnance factory worker, Ashok, who had a radiating pain in the right leg for two months was successfully operated in a city hospital using the next generation bi-portal endoscopy procedure.Walking or sitting crosslegged was extremely difficult for the patient. It was found in subsequent investigations that he had spinal nerve compression at the L-5 and S-1 vertebrae -medically termed lateral recess stenosis.
It is one of the most common spinal degenerative conditions, in which open spaces within the spine become narrowed, leading to pressure on the spinal cord and nerves in the spine.
To take the pressure off his spinal nerves, a team of doctors carried out the next generation bi-portal endoscopy procedure that provided him immediate relief.Following a successful operation, Ashok was discharged in three days.
The next generation endoscopic spine surgery attempts to expand the strength of traditional endoscopy procedure and reduce the co-morbidities associated with conventional open spine surgery .
The traditional posterior (back side) spine surgery approach includes detaching the strong support muscles from the spine in order to stabilize it and decompress the nerve. The posterior minimally invasive spine technique uses a smaller incision.
However, the next generation minimally invasive biportal endoscopic spine surgery uses a similar small incision, but leave the supporting muscles attached. The procedure is completed in the same session by working “between the muscle fibres“.“I am completely relieved of the radiating pain, which had severely hampered my daily routine. Post-surgery , I resumed my work within a week,“ Ashok said.
Orthopaedic spine surgeon Ketan Deshapande along with spine surgeon Pradyumna Pai Raiturka carried out the complicated surgery at Saishree Hospital on Sunday .
“The bare minimal muscle disruption in this approach leads to better outcomes and lesser need for reoperation. This is the first time that the bi-portal endoscopic spinal decompression surgery has been performed in Maharashtra,“ Deshpande said.
Deshpande is exclusively trained in endoscopic and minimally invasive spine surgeries.
“This is a revolutionary procedure in terms of technical advancement and is more acceptable than traditional endoscopy . This is because the surgical view is comparable with that of open surgical approach and is cost-effective as well,“ Raiturkar said.
In surgeries on the spine, the objective is to decrease the pain and weakness by stabilizing the spine (artificial disc or fusion) or taking pressure off the nerve (decompression or discectomy).
“In order to get to the spine, the surgeon must navigate through the skin, muscles and ligaments in a way that these structures are minimally affected and continue to support the spine when the surgery is complete. This objective is best achieved in this bi-portal endoscopic approach,“ Deshpande said.
So, should a patient with any spine issue seek this minimally invasive procedure?
“No, this surgical approach is not for all spinal complaints. It is best suited for selected patients only ,“ said Deshpande, who has trained with South Korean neuro-spine expert Eum Jin Wha -the inventor of the technique.
