What does spine surgery mean?

The spine helps to provide structural support to the human body and acts as a passage to the important nerves in our body.  When there is any damage or dislocation to any of the discs, it should be treated immediately by consulting the best spine surgeon in Chennai. 



An intervertebral disc is a strong ligament to connects one vertebral bone to another.  The discs are the shock-absorbing cushions that are located between each vertebra of the spine. 



Anatomy of a Disc

The annulus can either tear or rupture anywhere around the disc and gives severe back pain. If it tears, and when no disc material is ruptured, an annular tear can be excruciating as the outer fibers carry pain signals frequently. 



Disc Injury
