Neurosurgeon Jamil Iskandarov: “In 95-97% of cases, a surgery can have a good result”

One of the most common diseases of the spine is a spinal disc herniation. The disease, known as the Hernia, is found in the neck, chest and back.We often hear that the lack of treatment for this disease is associated with the possibility of needing to surgery. This was the topic of our conversation with Jamil Iskandarov, a famous neurosurgeon, a staff member of the Neurosurgery Department of of Azerbaijan Medical University.


- What are the most common problems associated with the spine today?

- Unfortunately, the most common diseases of the spine are degenerative diseases that are associated with a sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet, and improper organization of the labor process. The most common is herniation of intervertebral discs. If 30-40 patients come to us during the day, more than half of them have a herniated disc of the spine.

Spinal disc herniation is formed in the lumbar spine, cervical, thoracic. The problems of our patients are mainly related to the back. In the case of a herniated disc, the most effective method is surgery. Of course, it is important to correctly diagnose and conduct surgical operations at the right time.


- Is it possible to completely eliminate the problem with the help of surgery?

-In 95-97% of cases, the correct diagnosis and surgery can have a good result. As a result of the surgery, the pain of the patient is reduced, the neurological disorder is eliminated. Very rarely, in 3-5% of cases, preoperative pain continues after surgery. It depends on the postoperative adaptation of the organism.


- Is incisional hernia likely to reappear?

- In rare cases, recurrent hernias can be detected in 2-5% of cases. Such situations are found not only in our country, but throughout the world. And it does not depend on the surgeon at all, but on the patient’s former way of life.

Unfortunately, sometimes surgeons make mistakes, resort to surgery, even when it is not necessary. Since we have a university clinic, patients undergo detailed and accurate examinations. Highly qualified specialists of the Educational-surgical Clinic of AMU are always ready to help patients.
