I was referred to Dr.Priyank Patel by my friend. I was suffering from severe sciatica pain and tried different doctors, but I found relief within 8 days of Dr.Priyank Patel’s treatment. I am a hiker and was very depressed that my happiness was totally taken away from me and I will never be able to climb mountains. Dr. Priyank Patel on my first session itself build my hopes by saying we are here to help you fulfill all your dreams. I have been taking his treatment for last 8 months and have already climbed 2 mountains in Bali and did a 50km walk. He has a great team of doctors, Dr.Keshav who assisted me and answered all my queries and Dr.Niyati my physio who has helped throughout this process. I would definitely recommend Dr.Priyank Patel because he is a knowledgeable and uses modern technology and has a fantastic team.

This is regarding my 80yr old mother Mrs.S K Desai who has been under Dr Priyank Patel's care and perfect professional expertise. I casually found Dr Patel through Google when I needed a spine specialist for my mum's cervical pain. From the first meeting at Doctor House to every other appointment at Reliance or Breach Candy my mum has been looked after with utmost patience and care. What does a patient need the most when she is in pain? It's emotional support, a listening ear and ofcourse right diagnostics. Since 2021 we have been in touch .. and along with his associate Dr Keshav, they have been ultra caring and supportive. Whether it was her cervical issues, osteoporosis, sciatica pain...Dr Patel has been spot on ...I would highly recommend Dr Priyank and his whole team. ..along with his appointment assistant Ms.Archana for being so cooperative and helpful.

I would like to share an experience my family and I had with Dr. Priyank, Dr. Keshav, and Dr. Kedar. Our journey with them began serendipitously, discovered through a recommendation from my brother-in-law, who is a pathologist and also Dr. Priyank Patel's junior in college. Our journey started when I brought my mother to them for consultation after a spine fracture left her unable to walk and perform daily activities. Her pain was excruciating. However, Dr. Priyank and Dr. Keshav displayed remarkable compassion and professionalism after consultation, putting my mother at ease and instilling confidence in our decision to proceed with the surgery. The surgery itself was an unequivocal success, and the entire process went remarkably smoothly, largely thanks to Dr. Priyank's expertise. I also want to express our special thanks to Dr. Keshav and Dr. Kedar, invaluable members of this exceptional medical team. Their guidance, expertise, and unwavering dedication were pivotal in ensuring the surgery's success. They continued to support and guide us through the post-surgery recovery process to this day. We are deeply grateful for the exceptional care and unwavering support provided by this remarkable team of medical professionals. With heartfelt appreciation, Thanks alot

A very amazing Dr with his Amazing team!!! Honestly, I came across him by chance firstly and secondly, through a very good friend. He recommended him to me. I took my 82 year old grandmother to him for consultation. He was very polite and soft with his approach while dealing with such geriatric patients. My grandmother was very apprehensive about seeing a doctor. She had fractured her lower spine and was unable to walk at all and was not able to do any of her routine activities as well. She was in terrible pain and we were just to see her suffer... We were suggested for surgery at other places but were contemplating about she undergoing a surgery at this age. However, with the first consultation with Dr Priyank and Dr Keshav, she had become comfortable and we could convince her for the surgery due to the confidence shown by both these doctors. The surgery was a 'SUCCESS'. The overall process of the surgery was very smooth and the surgery was done successfully. All this was made possible due to easy connect with Dr Keshav throughout our journey. He has been the biggest support and motivation to my grandmother and to us as family. This team of Doctors including Dr Abhay Nene, Dr Priyank, Dr Keshav and Dr Nishant made it all so seamless, effortless. They all made it possible and made it a success. They also suggested and guided us throughout the post surgery process and guided us to one of the best neuro-physiotherapist and today almost after 3 months of surgery, she walks all alone with the help of a stick and is able to do all her routine chores independently. :) We have never been more happier to see her walk normally.. A great Thanks to Dr Priyank and to Dr Keshav for making us believe in them and making it a success for us. Thanks a ton Doctors!!!!!!

What is Spine Disk Replacement Surgery?

Spine Disk Replacement Surgery, also known as artificial disc replacement (ADR) or total disc replacement, is an advanced surgical procedure aimed at addressing debilitating spinal conditions by replacing damaged or degenerated intervertebral discs. The procedure involves the following key steps:

  • Disc Removal: The surgeon carefully removes the problematic or damaged intervertebral disc, which may be causing chronic back pain or other symptoms.
  • Artificial Disc Implant: A specially designed artificial disc, often used in cutting-edge artificial disc replacement surgery in Mumbai, is then inserted into the vacant disc space. These implants are crafted to mimic the natural function of a healthy disc, providing stability and allowing for controlled motion.
  • Restoring Disc Height: The goal of the surgery is to restore the normal height of the disc, contributing to the proper alignment of the spine and potentially relieving pressure on surrounding nerves.

Benefits of Spine Disk Replacement Surgery include:

  • Preservation of Spine Motion: Unlike traditional spinal fusion surgery, ADR aims to maintain natural spine motion, potentially reducing stress on adjacent discs.
  • Improved Pain Relief: Artificial disc implants, a hallmark of artificial disc replacement treatment in Mumbai, are designed to alleviate pain more effectively, offering enhanced mobility and function compared to some other surgical interventions.
  • Reduced Risks of Adjacent Segment Degeneration: By preserving motion, this surgery may lower the risk of degeneration in the adjacent spinal segments over time.

It is crucial for individuals considering spine disk replacement surgery to consult with a qualified spine specialist. This ensures a comprehensive evaluation of their specific condition, determining whether they are suitable candidates, and understanding the potential risks and benefits associated with the procedure.

  7. Age Considerations: While there isn’t a strict age limit, candidates are generally within an age range where the benefits of the surgery outweigh the potential risks.
  8. Willingness to Follow Post-Operative Instructions: Candidates must be committed to adhering to post-operative care instructions, including rehabilitation exercises and activity restrictions.

For those considering spine disk replacement surgery in Mumbai, consulting with the best doctor is essential. Dr. Priyank M. Patel, a renowned specialist offering artificial disc replacement treatment in Mumbai, stands out for his expertise.

Types of Discs Used in Artificial Disc Replacement

Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR) is an innovative surgical procedure designed to replace damaged or degenerated intervertebral discs in the spine. Several types of artificial discs are utilized in these procedures, each with unique characteristics and materials. The main types include:

  1. Metal-on-Polyethylene Discs: This type of artificial disc consists of a metal ball component that articulates within a polyethylene (plastic) socket. The metal component is often made of alloys like cobalt-chromium or titanium, offering durability and compatibility with the body.
  2. Metal-on-Metal Discs: In this design, both the ball and socket components are made of metal. Metal-on-metal discs are known for their longevity and low wear rates, but concerns have been raised about potential metal ion release and adverse reactions in some patients.
  3. Metal-on-Ceramic Discs: These artificial discs combine a metal ball with a ceramic socket. Ceramic components provide a smooth surface and low friction, reducing wear and tear over time.
  4. Porous-Coated Discs: Some artificial discs feature a porous coating on the metal components. This coating promotes bone growth into the implant, enhancing stability and integration with the surrounding vertebrae.
  5. Elastomeric Discs: Elastomeric discs incorporate flexible materials, often utilizing a combination of metal and high-grade plastic. This design aims to mimic the natural flexibility and shock-absorbing properties of a healthy disc.
  6. Ball-and-Socket Design: Inspired by the natural anatomy of the spine, this design features a metal ball that moves within a concave socket, allowing for controlled motion and flexibility.

For those seeking the best treatment for spine disk replacement surgery in Mumbai, consulting with a specialized spine disk replacement surgery specialist in Mumbai, such as Dr. Priyank M. Patel, ensures personalized care and expertise in artificial disc replacement treatment. The selection of the most suitable artificial disc is a collaborative decision between the patient and the healthcare team, considering individual factors and the desired outcome of the surgery. Advances in materials and design contribute to the success of artificial disc replacement procedures, providing effective solutions for spinal disorders.

Causes of Spine Disk Replacement

Spine disk replacement, also known as artificial disc replacement (ADR), is typically considered a treatment option for individuals experiencing specific spinal conditions. The common causes that may lead to the consideration of spine disk replacement, particularly in Mumbai, include:

  6. Unresponsive to Other Surgeries: In some cases, individuals who have undergone previous spinal surgeries, such as discectomy or laminectomy, and continue to experience persistent symptoms may explore spine disk replacement as an alternative treatment option.
  7. Younger, Active Patients: Spine disk replacement is often considered for younger, more active individuals who may benefit from preserving spinal motion compared to traditional fusion surgeries.

It’s essential for individuals considering spine disk replacement to undergo a thorough evaluation by a qualified spine disk replacement surgeon in Mumbai. The decision for surgery is typically based on a combination of factors, including the specific spinal condition, the individual’s overall health, and the potential benefits and risks associated with the procedure. Open communication with the healthcare team ensures that the chosen treatment aligns with the patient’s unique needs and goals for spinal health.

Diagnosis of Spine Disk Replacement

The diagnosis of spine disk replacement, or artificial disc replacement (ADR), involves a comprehensive assessment by a qualified spine specialist to determine the underlying causes of spinal issues and whether the individual is a suitable candidate for the procedure. The diagnostic process typically includes the following key steps:

  1. Medical History Review: The spine specialist conducts a thorough review of the patient’s medical history, including any previous spinal conditions, surgeries, and a detailed account of current symptoms.
  2. Physical Examination: A physical examination is conducted to assess the patient’s overall spine health, focusing on range of motion, reflexes, strength, and any signs of nerve compression.
  3. Imaging Studies: Advanced imaging studies, such as X-rays, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and CT (Computed Tomography) scans, are essential for visualizing the spine’s structure. These images help identify the specific disc-related issues, such as herniation, degeneration, or other abnormalities.
  4. Discography: In some cases, discography may be performed. This involves injecting a contrast dye into the suspected problematic disc to assess its condition and identify the source of pain.
  5. Neurological Assessment: A neurological examination is conducted to evaluate nerve function, including sensory perception, muscle strength, and reflexes. This helps determine the extent of nerve involvement and any potential impact on daily activities.
  6. Conservative Treatment Assessment: The effectiveness of conservative treatments, such as physical therapy, medications, and injections, is evaluated. If these methods have not provided sufficient relief, spine disk replacement may be considered.
  7. Patient Consultation: The spine specialist discusses the diagnosis, available treatment options, and the potential benefits and risks of spine disk replacement with the patient. This consultation involves addressing any questions or concerns the patient may have.
  8. Pre-Surgical Evaluation: For individuals considering surgery, a pre-surgical evaluation is conducted to assess their overall health and identify any potential risks that may impact the surgical procedure or recovery.

For those in Mumbai considering artificial disc replacement treatment, the diagnostic process is crucial for determining the most effective course of action. Additionally, discussions about the cost of spine disk replacement surgery in Mumbai and consultation with the best doctor for spine disk replacement surgery in Mumbai contribute to informed decision-making and a successful treatment journey.

Spine disk replacement surgery options

Spine disk replacement, also known as artificial disc replacement (ADR), offers various surgical options to address specific spinal conditions. The selection of the most suitable procedure depends on factors such as the location of the affected disc, the extent of degeneration, and the overall health of the patient.
