COVID-19

Please note that due to the coronavirus we are deferring all appointments for further care. The progression of the virus throughout the region will determine when we can re-start seeing routine patients again. We do hope that we can get the service up and running and soon as possible.

Should you feel that your symptoms are causing you serious concerns or that you feel you cannot wait for further contact please do contact your GP as soon as possible or in an emergency situation please attend your local Accident and Emergency Department.

Once we are in a position to resume the service we will be in touch with patients individually.

Your spine is the centre of your body, helping to keep your body aligned.

A spinal injury or condition can limit your mobility, and our spinal surgeons work to restore flexibility and movement while minimising pain.

Spinal surgery focuses on all areas of the neck and back. Our specialists treat conditions of the lumbar spine and coccyx.

Common conditions of the spine that our spinal surgeons treat are:

  • Lumbar Decompression – surgery to minimise pain and numbness in the legs by removing part of the vertebrae through an incision in the spine
  • Lumbar Microdiscectomy – surgery that removes a herniated disc to eliminate pain
  • Nerve route injections
  • Facet joint injections

Where appropriate, our consultants conduct these procedures using minimally invasive techniques to minimise risk of infection and reduce recovery time.
