Spinal surgery

Fast access to tailored spinal treatment.

If your back pain has not been alleviated by treatment options such as medication and physiotherapy, you might require surgery. We have a broad range of surgical treatment options to help you tackle back pain. For example:  

Spinal fusion surgery

Spinal fusion surgery can effectively treat chronic pain in your lumbar (lower) spine by mimicking the natural healing process of broken bones. The procedure involves fusing together two or more of your vertebrae (the bones that form your spinal cord) together using a bone graft. This helps your spine heal as a solid unit, helping reduce pain and restore function to your back. 

Lumbar spinal decompression surgery

Lumbar spinal decompression is performed to treat compressed nerves from a range of spinal issues, including spinal injuries and a slipped disc in your back. There are three common forms of this procedure: 

Laminectomy: when a section of your bone is removed from one of your vertebrae (spinal bones). This helps alleviate pressure on the affected nerve. 

Discectomy: when a section of a damaged disc in your back is removed to alleviate pressure on your nerve(s). 

Spinal fusion: as noted above, this happens when one or more of your vertebrae are fused together to strengthen and stabilise your spine. 

Lumbar laminectomy

This is a form of surgery during which your Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon will remove part or all of the vertebral bone in your spine, which helps ease pressure on your spinal cord and nerve roots, reducing pain and improving your mobility. This procedure may be performed along with spinal fusion to help you spine heal as a solid unit. 

Spine injection for pain

These injections are also known as epidural steroid injections. An epidural injection contains a steroid medicine, usually combined with local anaesthetic. Steroid injections help eliminate inflammation around your spinal cord, reducing pain and stiffness in your back in turn.
