Neurosurgical Spine Surgeries

The spine is one of the most important parts of the body responsible for human‘s movement and support. Without a spine, a person could not stand upright, could not walk, stand still. This is the most important supporting part of the human body. However, various spinal illnesses caused by sedentary work, inadequate physical activity, irregular posture, etc. occur more often due to the current lifestyle and work manner.

Tautrimas Aštrauskas Clinic in collaboration with Clinic AGATAS now performs neurosurgical spine surgeries.

Spine surgeries are necessary if leg muscles are developing paralysis – with a “foot drop”, there is a risk of irreversible damage to the nerves. When paralysis of the bladder or rectum sphincter (disruption of urination and bowel movement) occurs, surgery should be performed immediately.

The purpose of the surgery is to remove the damaged part of the intervertebral disc, at the same time freeing the compressed nerve root or their fiber, restoring the blood flow, reducing the swelling, which caused the clinical symptoms.

The choice of the surgical treatment method, the size of the incision and the extent of the surgery are determined by the patient’s age, psychological status, complexity, duration of the disease, size of lesions, special research data and other factors. Before surgery, this will be explained to you in detail by the operating surgeon. During the consultation, the surgeon will evaluate all the positive and negative aspects of the treatment and present them to you.

Part of the skin derivatives are congenital and part of them appear with age. The most commonly occurring skin derivatives are birthmarks, which do not cause a big trouble, because they are usually benign, but even benign birthmarks can become malignant, especially if they are often traumatised or exposed at the sun. Therefore, if you notice the newly emerging or changing (growing, changing colour, swelling, bleeding, etc.) skin derivative, consult your doctor immediately. Removal of benign skin derivatives is performed not only for aesthetic purposes, but also for the prevention of skin oncological diseases.

Skin derivatives can be treated with laser, localised frost, special light and other methods, but the most effective and safest way is surgical. The removed tissue can always be investigated histologically and accurately determine its nature, malignancy and radicalism of surgery.

After the procedure, patients can go home almost immediately. It is recommended not to wet the wounds for three days. For several weeks, active motions that could drain the scar should be avoided.

Labia plastic surgery is an aesthetic plastic surgery. The goal is usual to reduce the size of the small labia (labia minora), but sometimes also the large labia (labia majora) or clitoris. Large labia minora can cause both physical and psychological discomfort for women. Larger labia can mean that women experience insufficient lubrication and therefore endure pain during intercourse. Labia increase also causes discomfort when wearing tight clothes. Aside from the physical concerns, the psychological effect of a disturbance to your sex life caused by loss of self-esteem can greatly affect overall quality of life.

The labia majora can be corrected with liposuction, fat transplantation, or surgical intervention. Labiaplasty can be performed alongside vaginoplasty if necessary. Usually healing continues for several weeks, but patients can resume day-to-day activities within 1-5 days. Sexual intercourse should be avoided for about 1-3 weeks. Once healed, scars are almost invisible.

Vaginoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure for women to narrow and rejuvenate the vaginal canal, and help women to regain the joy of a full-fledged sexual life. Such procedures are recommended for women who have lost tissue elasticity and tone due to childbirth, trauma, congenital pathologies, or vaginal cancer.

Usually healing lasts a few weeks or months. Intercourse should be avoided for 4-6 weeks, and more intense physical activity should be limited for about 1-2 months. After vaginoplasty we recommended that women do not give birth vaginally, but by caesarean surgery. The aesthetic effects of vaginal plastic surgery are long lasting, but tissue tone and elasticity can change over the years, altering the size and shape of the vagina.
