Spine Center

At the Spine Center, experts from the departments of Orthopaedic Surgery, Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Anesthesiology and Pain Relief treat various neurological problems such as numbness in limbs and gait disorders.

Medical services

Abnormalities in the spine and spinal cord can cause a variety of neurological symptoms, but such conditions are so diverse that even specialists may have difficulty diagnosing and treating them. The Spine Center consists of four related departments, with specialists from each department providing treatment. For difficult cases, diagnosis and treatment policies are determined by multiple departments.

The four collaborating departments

  • Orthopaedic Surgery : The department performs minimally invasive surgery using endoscopes for cervical spondylosis and spinal canal stenosis, and corrective surgery for scoliosis. It has a great deal of experience in difficult-totreat cases and in devising surgical techniques for cervical spine surgery.
  • Neurosurgery : The department provides personalized medical care for each disease, using advanced medical techniques such as three-dimensional imaging to examine lesions and dye and fluorescein angiography during operations to identify tumors.
  • Neurology : In cases where it is necessary to differentiate between diseases with similar symptoms (Parkinson’s disease, ALS, etc.), a neurologist does the best to differentiate muscle weakness and numbness through a detailed examination coupled with the most suitable tests to identify the cause, so that treatment can be provided by the appropriate department.
  • Anesthesiology and Pain Relief Center : The center treats back pain and other chronic pains. Its activities include nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulation (SCS), radiofrequency thermocoagulation, drug therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Target diseases

Cervical spondylosis, ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament, lumbar spinal canal stenosis, osteoporosis, scoliosis, spinal cord tumor, Chiari malformation, dural arteriovenous fistula, vascular malformation, etc.
