Lanka Hospitals completes 50 minimally invasive spinal fusion surgeries

Lanka Hospitals, reached another milestone recently by successfully completing 50 minimally invasive spinal fusion surgeries.

Lanka Hospitals is the only hospital in Sri Lanka to reach this milestone in neurosurgery. The minimally invasive spinal fusion surgery is a state-of-the-art medical procedure carried out for spinal diseases with minimal pain or scarring. The procedure is carried out with the assistance of neuro navigation and neuro monitoring which ensures nearly zero chances of nerve damage during the minimally invasive spinal fusion surgery.

These special features enable an individual undergoing the surgery to recover much faster than when undergoing a traditional surgery. “Lanka Hospitals is the pioneer in minimally invasive spinal fusion surgeries in Sri Lanka and I’m proud to say that we may be one of the few hospitals in South Asia to carry out this procedure at the highest quality standard with the best technology and at the most cost-effective rate. The number of minimally invasive spinal fusion surgeries that we have carried out so far are a testament to the high caliber of neuro surgeons in our team and the state-of-the-art technology that they use at Lanka Hospitals to conduct these procedures,” Lanka Hospitals Group Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Prasad Medawatte stated.

“Lanka Hospitals can be considered South Asia’s most cost-effective option for minimally invasive spinal fusion surgeries. The minimally invasive spinal fusion surgery costs about Rs. half of the cost at Lanka Hospitals, when compared to Singapore and other parts of the world the surgery costs as much as double. We offer the same surgery at the same high standards, which very few are aware of. This factor combined with the MRI scanning technology at the hospital enables us to come to a correct diagnosis prior to conducting surgery,” Consultant Neurological Surgeon, Dr. Prasanna Gunasena stated.

The Lanka Hospitals Neurosurgical Centre offers the services of a specialized team of Neurosurgeons 24 hours, 365 days a year to facilitate neurological emergency services. The Neurosurgical Centre supports imminent neurologists and neuro-electrophysiologists for EEG and EMG tests.

The Neurosurgical Centre also has at its discretion the latest cutting-edge technology such as Neuronavigation system, 32 channel Nerve monitoring system, Microscopes and 3 dimensional C-arm.

It also has the latest imaging devices such as the 3 Tesla MRI and CT for accurate diagnosing of conditions. Lanka Hospitals is the first hospital in Sri Lanka to be awarded some of the most prestigious accreditations in the world for its healthcare service standards including the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation since 2014, and currently holds the world respected Medical Tourism Certification from the Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA).

Furthermore, Lanka Hospitals Diagnostics (LHD) is the only Sri Lankan laboratory to be accredited by the prestigious laboratory accreditation body, The College of American Pathologists (CAP).
