Academic Achievement:

  • Minimally Invasive (Keyhole) Spine Surgery: The procedure involves using just 1-1.5-inch-long skin incisions to relieve pressure from upon the spinal nerves & stabilise the spine using state of the art Minimal Access equipment (in patients with severe low back pain and sciatica/difficulty in walking long distances).
    1. This is a revolutionary procedure which decreases recovery time, post procedure pain and discomfort dramatically compared to older conventional spine procedures.
    2. Dr Rajan is one of very few spine surgeons in the country performing these types of procedures.
  • Deformity Correction (Kyphosis/Scoliosis): Many patients can develop abnormal curvature of the spine due to a number of reasons.
    1. These are corrected by newer techniques using intraoperative Neuro-Monitoring and Neuro-Navigation using O-arm in most cases which greatly increase the safety and the accuracy of the surgery.
  • Cement Stabilisation for Spinal Fractures: Elderly population is vulnerable to spontaneous fractures of the spine due to the weakness of the bones.
    1. Dr Rajan uses latest techniques which enable almost instantaneous fixation of the fracture and relief from pain via just 5mm access incision.
  • Micro-Endoscopic Disc Surgery: Fresh slipped discs that do not improve on medicines are treated using special patented access ports which allow many of such procedures to be carried out as day-care procedures under local anaesthesia.
  • Spinal Fixation and Fusion: Dr Rajan uses Robotic O-Arm Neuro-Navigation in every single spine procedure he performs.
    1. This exclusive and unique tool automatically guides in accurate and safe execution of every critical step in spine surgery like screw or cage placement thus drastically bringing down any possible errors.
