Know Your Spine Surgeon

A spinal surgeon is a doctor who specialises in the surgical treatment of conditions affecting the spine (the bones, discs, and nerves that make up the spinal column). They diagnose and treat a wide range of spinal problems, including spinal injuries, herniated discs, degenerative conditions, and spinal deformities. Spine surgeons are trained in a variety of surgical techniques, including minimally invasive procedures and complex spinal reconstruction. They work closely with other healthcare professionals to develop individualised treatment plans for each patient, with the goal of relieving pain and improving spinal function.

Preparation before consultation

Before spine surgery consultation, it's important to be prepared by doing the following:

  • Gathering one's medical records, including X-rays, MRI results, and any previous surgery reports.
  • Making a list of symptoms and medications an individual is currently taking.
  • Preparing a list of questions to ask the surgeon during the consultation.
  • Preparing for any necessary tests or procedures before the consultation.

It's important to play an active role in your own healthcare and be well-informed before making any decisions related to a treatment.

What to expect during a spine surgeon consultation

During a spine surgery consultation, the doctor may ask several questions to better understand your condition and determine the best course of treatment. These questions may include:

  • What symptoms are you experiencing?
  • When did you first start experiencing symptoms?
  • Have you tried any previous treatments?
  • Have you been diagnosed with any conditions that may be related to your symptoms?
  • Have you had any accidents or injuries to their spine?
  • Have you undergone any imaging studies, such as X-rays or MRIs?
  • Is there a history of back problems in your family?

This information will help the surgeon determine the cause of your symptoms and develop an appropriate treatment plan.

Types of examination conducted on the patient

A spine surgeon typically performs physical examination, imaging tests (X-rays, MRI, and CT), nerve tests (EMG and NCV), and may ask for a patient's medical history.

  • Neurological examination
  • A neurological examination is an evaluation of the nervous system performed by a spine surgeon. It usually starts with taking a detailed medical history and asking about symptoms. This examination includes assessment of reflexes, muscle strength, sensation, coordination, and balance. The surgeon may also perform specific tests such as the straight leg raise test, assessment of nerve root irritation, or the spurling test, to evaluate cervical radiculopathy. The examination may also include imaging tests such as an MRI to help diagnose any underlying spinal conditions.

  • Physical examination
  • A physical examination conducted by a spinal consultant typically involves evaluating a patient's posture, spinal alignment, range of motion, and muscle strength. The surgeon may ask the patient to perform certain movements, such as bending forward, twisting, and walking, in order to assess the patient's pain and mobility. The surgeon may also perform a neurological exam to evaluate any numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms or legs. In some cases, the surgeon may prescribe imaging tests, such as X-rays, MRI, or CT scans, to get a better understanding of the patient's spinal condition.

A spine surgeon uses both surgical and non-surgical methods to relieve pain and improve functioning of the spine. Choosing an experienced and qualified surgeon is crucial for a successful outcome.
