Prolapse surgery

Groruddalsklinikken is a recognized clinic that specializes in various medical procedures, including prolapse surgery. Prolapse, also known as herniated disc or slipped disc, is a condition in which the jelly-like core of an intervertebral disc pushes out through a crack in the outer ring. This can lead to pain, numbness and impaired function in the affected area.

Prolapse surgery is a surgical procedure that is performed to relieve the symptoms and restore normal function of the spine. Groruddalsklinikken has an experienced team of surgeons and healthcare personnel who are dedicated to giving patients the best care and treatment.

Before prolapse surgery, patients will undergo thorough examinations and diagnostic tests to confirm the diagnosis and assess the severity of the prolapse. This may include X-rays, MRIs or CT scans. Based on the results of these tests, the surgeon will develop an individual treatment plan for each patient.

Prolapse surgery can be performed in different ways, depending on the patient’s condition and needs. A common method is microsurgical discectomy, where the surgeon removes the part of the damaged disc that presses on the nerve. This is done using a microscope and specialized instruments, which gives the surgeon better precision and minimal tissue damage.

Another method is spinal fusion, where the surgeon removes the damaged disc and replaces it with an artificial disc or bone material to stabilize the spine. This may be necessary if the prolapse has led to severe instability in the spine.

Groruddalsklinikken uses modern technology and advanced surgical techniques to ensure the best possible result for the patients. The surgeons at the clinic have extensive experience in prolapse surgery and are up-to-date on the latest developments in the field.

After the prolapse operation, the patients will be followed up by a team of healthcare personnel to ensure a successful rehabilitation. This may include physiotherapy, pain relief and guidance on appropriate exercise and activity to strengthen the back muscles and prevent future problems.

Groruddalsklinikken attaches great importance to the patient’s well-being and comfort throughout the entire treatment process. They offer a safe and caring atmosphere where patients can feel cared for and safe.
