Frequently Asked Questions

Could complications arise because of the surgery on spine?

As with any procedure, there are general risks of surgery and anesthesia although they are very low. These include uncontrollable bleeding, wound infection, blood clots, pulmonary embolism, abdominal problems, loss of bowel or bladder control, impotence, retrograde ejaculation, heart attack, paralysis and death. Nerve root damage can also occur, which results in numbness and/or weakness in the leg. The possibility of these complications is very low.
