GSK Spine





Lumbar
The lumbar spine refers to the lower area of the spine between the pelvis and thoracic cage. It is made up of 5 vertebrae (although some people may have 6) that are stacked on top of each other with cushion-like intervertebral discs in between. The lower back is the largest movable segment of the vertebral column and is extremely vulnerable to disorders, making it the source of many pain complaints. We are experienced in treating the many problems that arise from the lumbar spine.

Lumbar Deformity

Spinal deformities usually appear in the form of curves in the spine. They can be a result of a birth defect, trauma or other spine disease such as scoliosis.

Spine Fusion Surgery

Spine fusion is a surgical procedure used to link together vertebrae, often because of a damaged disc. During surgery, bone growth is stimulated and then used to link the vertebrae together to stop the painful movement in the area.
