Background : The lack of knowledge about health problem is one of the major problem in developing countries. This condition leads to poor judgement of symptoms and delayed of diagnosis. The needs of advanced diagnostic tools, surgery and medical treatments in spinal pathologies compound those difficulties in achieving the optimal outcome. But  all the problems were not well-documented as an objective data to evaluate the adequacy of the health system.

 

Objectives : To overview the pre-hospitalization, hospitalization, surgery and post-hospitalization problems in a single centre study.

 

Methods : This is the retrospective study with statistical analysis.  We reviewed the records of patients who presented to Neurospine unit of Neurospine Perihperal Nerve and Pain Division,  Neurosurgery Departments Hasan Sadikin General Teaching Hospital, Bandung from 2010 through 2016.

 

Results : There were 590 consecutive patients included in the study who met the inclusion criteria. The data was recorded for the demographics, time of the initial symptoms to diagnosis, surgical procedure, pathology entities, and 12-months follow-up obedience. We described the complicating factors from patient’s history taking and literature review.

 

Conclusion : The good collaboration of the surgeons, medical caregivers, peers and relatives support plays important role to establish the proper data registry that can enhance the development of health system in our centre.
