Causes and Prevention of Spine Diseases

Ankylosing Spondylitis 

Ankylosing Spondylitis Is a inflammatory disorder which is chronic in nature. The reasons for this disorder is unknown though the primary area of its affects are largely seen around the spine, sternum, and large joints in the body. The disincentive feature of this ailment is a significant or complete loss of spine flexibility. Morning stiffness, limited motion and chronic back pain are other few prominent side effects. 

Herniated Disc

The discs between the vertebrae in our spine act as rubbery cushions or shock absorbers. They provide the elasticity and flexibility in the spinal column. These discs tend to deteriorate with age or injury and bulge or rupture and cause immense pain when the body is in action. The comply attack the next and lower back region, certain times compressing the nerves in and around the region causing further damage. STARS has a dedicated physiotherapist center that provide non – invasive solutions to this issue. In severe conditions, we have our team of experts who perform surgeries ranging from minimally invasive discectomy to spinal fusion. 


Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine to the sideways and can affect people of any age group. It prominently causes discomfort in regions around the cervical spine or the neck region, the thoracic spine which is the chest and upper back region or the lumbar spine which is the lower neck region. This abnormality is usually visible when a shoulder, waist, hip or a part of the body is higher in one side than the other leading to increased risk of back pain. STARS team has the best non – surgical and minor surgical treatments depending on the severity of Scoliosis. We conduct treatments ranging from minimally invasive spine surgeries to posterior spinal fusion.

Spine Stenosis refers to a condition where the spinal canal narrows down that results in immense pressure on nerves resulting to weakness, numbness and pain in its extremities.

We offer support that varies from oral medications to spinal decompression surgeries in case of severe conditions. 


They are separate yet related conditions. While Spondylosis refers to spine fracture Spondylitis is an incorrect movement and positioning of spine vertebrae. Any pain in the neck, back, legs though or shoulder region, muscle spasms, stiffness or numbness in the back area the major symptoms that should not be ignored.

Surgical Treatments

Disc Replacement: This is performed to decompress the jammed nerves where the damaged disc between two vertebrae are replaced with an artificial disc. This is done in case of herniated disc issues.

Diskectomy or Microdiskectomy: This is a minimally invasive decompression surgery done to remove a portion of a disc that is herniated and pressing on a nerve. These procedures restore mobility.

Cervical Laminectomy: This procedure is done to enlarge the spinal canal, the passage through which the spinal cord passes, to alleviate stress and pain.

Foraminotomy: In this process the space through which a nerve passes in the spinal canal is enlarged. Sometimes they get blocked due to bone or other tissue, so we remove those blocks to restore mobility.

Laminectomy and Laminotomy: In this surgery, the back part of a vertebra, called the lamina, is removed to provide more space to a nerve that is being compressed. Laminotomy is a process where only a portion of the affected area is removed to restore mobility. 

Spinal Fusion: This process is done to stabilize or strengthen a crooked spine. Two or more vertebrae are joined in this process which eventually heal to become one solid bone. This prevents any kind of movement that gives rise to compress of nerves. Spinal deformities such as scoliosis, spondylolisthesis or kyphosis and unstable/broken vertebrae conditions require spinal fusion.

Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT): This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to treat children with deformed spinal structure or scoliosis. We place a flexible cord to align the spine as the child grows.
