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