Singapore Embraces Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery
Date:5/7/2010

suffered a prolapsed herniated disc. A thorough examination further revealed he had some limitations of lumbar spine flexion and a MRI scan revealed a broad base L3-4 disc bulge, L4-5 root canal stenosis and L5-S1 centre-left disc prolapse impinging left S1 nerve root.

Dr Tan decided to perform a L5-S1 Microdisectomy for Patrick. Using microsurgical techniques and a small incision, the microdisectomy took the pressure off the nerve root by removing the portion of the disc that was pressing on it. The surgery progressed without complications and by the third day, Patrick was well enough to be discharged.

"Amazingly, the 'dog-biting' back and leg pain I had grown accustomed to over the years has gradually gone. It has been quite a while since I felt so liberated!" says a much relieved Patrick.

In fact, just a day after his discharge, Patrick was fit and ready to be a regular tourist – visiting Chinatown, Jurong Bird Park and Sentosa.

Patrick understands that he may still be prone to some backache in future due to multiple levels of disc degeneration. But had he not undergone this treatment, he would no doubt have lived out the rest of his life with severe back pain.

"The whole experience in Singapore since I touched down has been very pleasant and good. The hospitality that I received upon arrival, the professionalism of Dr Tan and his team of doctors and nurses at Mount Elizabeth Hospital, as well as the caring and friendly staff at Parkway, had been great," he says.
