Spine surgery deals with the prevention, diagnosis, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders of the spine.
The spine provides support for the body and houses the spinal cord thus protecting it from injury. It is comprised of vertebrae stacked one on top of another and has the following regions :1. the cervical spine, 2. the thoracic spine, 3. the lumbar spine, 4. the sacral region, and 5. the coccyx region. Each vertebra is separated by a jelly-like disc that keeps the bones from rubbing together and acts as a shock absorber. Spinal nerves which exit the spinal canal at specific regions carry messages between the spinal cord and the body.
A spine surgeon is a medical doctor, either a neurosurgeon or an orthopedic surgeon, who specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders and injuries of the spine.
