Some orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons specialise in disorders of the spine and back. They deal with conditions such as cervical and lumbar disc problems, scoliosis, lower back pain and sciatica, and traumatic injury to the spine. The operations and treatments that spine and back specialists offer include spinal fusion, disc removal (discectomy), minimally invasive cervical and lumbar disc surgery.
There is a professional association for orthopaedic surgeons in the UK who have a special interest in spine surgery and treatment - the British Association of Spinal Surgeons (BASS). The Society of British Neurosurgeons is the professional association for nuerosurgeons in the UK.
