Back Related Problems
Patients with back-related problems are admitted for acute medical management or surgical interventions, such as:

Example 1: Randall is complaining of lower back pain, left lower extremity pain located at the front aspect of his left leg and outer aspect of the back of his left thigh. The consideration is surgery for a Lumbar Decompression.

Example 2: Mrs. Honu's Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scan reveals ruptured discs at the Cervical Spine levels 4-5-6. She has decided to have surgery and is admitted for an Anterior Cervical Fusion for disc herniation.

Example 3: After exhausting conservative treatment options, Mr. Jonah remains with chronic lower back pain, intermittent numbness and tingling to his right leg. He is admitted for spine surgery which will involve the using the Ray-Threaded Fusion Device for his degenerating disc space condition.

Acute Spinal Cord Injury
The Queen's Medical Center is the main Trauma Center serving the Pacific basin. As part of our efforts to provide high quality patient care, a multidisciplinary Spinal Cord Injury Program is in the process of being developed to ensure provision of highly competent patient care and to maintain continuity of care from intensive to acute care and towards rehabilitation.

Example: Mark is a recent island visitor from the mainland who is eager to go bodysurfing. He goes to Sandy Beach and is slammed head first into the sand by a strong wave. He is rescued but his back is broken and has no feeling from the waist down.
