Where can I find private spinal surgery and back treatments in Basingstoke?
Based at BMI Hampshire Clinic in Basingstoke, SpineWorks is a multidisciplinary team of spinal and back specialists led by Consultant Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgeon, Mr Andrew Quaile. A satellite clinic is available at BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital, Guildford, Surrey, and Mr Quaile is also available for consultation at 9 Harley Street, London.
SpineWorks - a team approach to back problems
Mr Quaile, a highly experienced spinal surgeon, works
with an expert team of back specialists, including a consultant
musculoskeletal physician, a consultant neuroradiologist and two
consultants in acute and chronic pain management, to provide
non-surgical treatments for back problems in the first instance. Where
there is no alternative to surgery, he strives to use the least invasive
surgical technique available for a particular condition.
Non-surgical treatments for sciatica and lower back pain
The most common causes of sciatica and lower back pain are damage or degeneration of the discs in the spine, narrowing of the spinal canal trapping the nerves (spinal stenosis), and degenerative and inflammatory changes to the facet joints of the spine. These types of pain can often be treated conservatively using nerve block injections of anaesthetic and cortisone. Where nerve blocks fail to relieve pain due to damaged facet joints, a procedure to interrupt the nerve using a radiofrequency machine is often used. Spinal manipulations under anaesthetic also prove effective for some people with back pain and sciatica.
The team at SpineWorks works on the principle that keeping on the move is essential in the treatment of any back problem, and prescribes a range of drug therapies to maximise a person's mobility.
Expert spinal surgery at SpineWorks
In cases where conservative back treatments fail to make an impact, and in other spinal conditions such as spondylolithesis, scoliosis, spinal fractures and spinal tumours, Mr Quaile is able to provide the full range of spinal surgical procedures, including:
- Cervical and lumbar discectomy - to remove material from a herniated disc that is pressing on a nerve or the spinal cord
- Microdiscectomy - a discectomy performed using a special microscope, allowing the surgeon to use a smaller incision
AxiaLiF procedure - a minimally invasive technique to treat a slipped disc and create fusion at L5/S1
- Spinal fusion - to stabilise the spine, often used for fractures, scoliosis and spondylolisthesis
- Anterior spinal surgery and stabilisation of tumours or fractures
- Spinal stabilisation without fusion
