Welcome to Spine Care Hong Kong.
Our emphasis is the diagnosis and treatment of neck and back pain, sciatica and other spine disorders.
Your symptoms and history are documented followed by physical examination and imaging modalities. Additional procedures such as diagnostic and therapeutic injections may subsequently be suggested to define and localize the source of your symptoms.
An accurate diagnosis will then guide your structured treatment plan, commencing with initial conservative modalities such as physical therapy, back strengthening and stabilization training, anti-inflammatory medications, and possibly spinal injections for selective nerve root blocks and epidural injections. Most forms of back and neck pain can be treated without the need for surgery.
Should conservative measures fail then surgery may be indicated, we can perform many procedures utilizing minimally invasive surgical techniques, a standard lumbar microdiscectomy can be performed through an incision smaller than 1.5cm. In cases of lumbar instability and lumbar spondylolisthesis a minimally invasive TLIF with percutaneous pedicle screws and an interbody fusion cage can be performed through a small 2cm skin incision.
Fusionless implant technologies using cervical artificial disc replacements now mean that motion can be preserved after neck decompression surgery.
For previous unsuccessful back surgeries revision and reconstruction procedures are possible utilizing interbody fusion cage techniques.
