Spinal Surgery

Spinal surgery is used to treat; disc related problems ie disc prolapse, disc degeneration, infection, tumour or deformity. We will nearly always consider surgery as the last option behind the physical therapies, physiotherapy, osteopathy and chiropractic. Non operative pain control or injection techniques such as caudal epidurals and facet joint injections to give a ‘window of opportunity’ to allow further physical therapy are considered next.

The time when spinal surgery is considered before these therapies is when there is a serious pathology such as tumour or infection or when there is serious concern about nerve function such as in cauda equina syndrome. We offer different forms of surgery to treat each patient.
