Spinal surgery services
Spinal operations (excluding childhood and juvenile scoliosis) provided include cervical, thoracic and lumbar operations for degenerative, disc and neoplastic disorders. Where indicated the procedures will include fixation/fusion, with instrumentation. There is also a specialist interest in the management of patients with trigeminal neuralgia, including micro-vascular decompression via the posterior fossa route.
Sciatica and back pain
Neurological assessment, MRI scanning and treatment of sciatica and back pain. A holistic approach to management embracing physiotherapy, pain relief, and surgery where needed in the case of a slipped disc (microdiscectomy). In a microdiscectomy a small portion of the bone over the nerve and/or disc material from under the nerve is removed to relieve pressure. The pressure on the nerve root can cause severe leg pain, and while it may take months for the nerve root to fully heal and any numbness or weakness to get better, patients normally feel relief from leg pain almost immediately after a microdiscectomy.
