Scoliosis and Xifosis

This is degenerative and occurs when there is a deterioration in the joints of the spine.

Instability in the spine

This occurs when the spine is not secure, causing the vets to move more than normal.


They can be of primary or secondary level, originated by previous spinal surgeries.

Non-surgical treatments for the spine

Platelet-rich plasma for spinal diseases

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), also known as autologous growth factor therapy (AGFT).

PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, processing it to concentrate the platelets and then injecting the concentrated platelets into the injured area. The platelets release growth factors that can help stimulate healing and tissue regeneration.

If you are considering PRP for a spinal condition, it is important to speak with a doctor who specialises in regenerative medicine to discuss the potential risks and benefits and to determine if it is a suitable option for you.

Spinal infiltration

Also known as epidural infiltration, facet infiltration or paravertebral infiltration, it is a medical procedure in which a medication, such as a corticosteroid or local anaesthetic, is injected into the spinal column. The purpose of the infiltration is to relieve pain and inflammation caused by a variety of conditions, such as:

  • Herniated discs: When an intervertebral disc herniates, the disc material can press on a nerve root, causing pain, numbness and weakness in the leg or arm.
  • Spinal stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal canal can compress the spinal cord and nerves, causing pain, numbness and weakness.
  • Facet arthritis: Facet arthritis is an inflammation of the facet joints, which are the small joints connecting the vertebrae.
  • Myofascial pain: Myofascial pain is a type of chronic pain that originates in the muscles.

Management of spinal instability

There are several options for the non-surgical management of spinal instability, depending on the specific cause of the instability and the severity of the symptoms.

Sciatic nerve injury

There are several non-surgical options for treating a sciatic nerve injury and relieving pain, inflammation and other symptoms.

Spinal laser procedures

They are a minimally invasive option being investigated to treat various spinal conditions such as herniated discs, facet arthrosis and spinal stenosis.

Frequently asked questions about spinal surgery

Recovery from spine surgery is expected to be a gradual process that can take several months or even years to reach full recovery.

A spine operation, like any surgery, carries risks and possible complications. Although most people recover well from surgery, some may experience side effects and complications.

A spine operation can be considered a delicate and complex surgery due to the nature of the spine and the proximity of the spinal cord and nerves.

Spine surgery is considered when other treatments have not been effective in relieving symptoms or when the condition of the spine is causing significant disability that affects the patient's quality of life. Some of the spinal conditions that may require surgery include:
  • Slipped disc: If the herniated disc is pressing on the nerves and causing pain or disability, surgery may be needed to remove the part of the disc that is pressing on the nerves.
  • Spinal stenosis: If spinal stenosis is causing significant pain and disability, surgery may be necessary to relieve pressure on the nerves.
  • Scoliosis: If the curvature of the spine is severe enough and is causing pain or deformity, surgery may be necessary to correct the curvature and relieve symptoms.
  • Vertebral fractures: If the vertebral fracture is causing pain and disability, surgery may be necessary to stabilize the spine and allow healing.

According to some reports, the cost of spine surgery in Mexico can range between $10,000 and $30,000 Mexican pesos (approximately $500 and $1,500 US dollars).
