Lanka Hospitals reached another milestone recently by successfully completing 140 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 the least 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’ Group Chief Executive Officer, Deepthi Lokuarachchi said, “Lanka Hospitals is the pioneer in performing minimally invasive spinal fusion surgeries in Sri Lanka and we are one of the few hospitals in South Asia to carry out this procedure with the highest quality standards using the best technology and at the most cost-effective rate.”
