Spinal surgery procedures available


Lumbar disc replacement and anterior cervical disc excision and fusion

Degenerative disc disease is one of the most common causes of lower back pain.  As the discs in the spine age, they can grow thinner and rupture (herniate).  The gel from the disc leaks out and can put pressure on the sciatic nerve or whole spinal cord.  In severe cases this will need to be treated surgically, either by replacing the disc with a metal or plastic one, or by excising part of the disc.


Spinal decompression and microdiscectomy

These are surgical techniques to release trapped nerves.  Spinal nerves can become trapped, leading to back pain, in conditions such as spinal stenosis where a section of the spinal column narrows and places pressure on the nerves inside, and degenerative spondylolisthesis where, as the bones, joints and ligaments become weak as a result of ageing, one vertebra can slip forward over the one below it. 

Microdiscectomy is a specialised decompression procedure for the treatment of herniated discs.


Spinal fusion

It is sometimes necessary to join two or more vertebrae together in order to eliminate the pain caused by degenerative conditions, such as spondylosis (degenerative osteoarthritis of the spine).  Spinal fusion with instrumentation is used in the treatment of back deformities, for example, scoliosis.
