In addition to conservative treatment of various spinal conditions the vastly experienced neurosurgeons at Ross Hall Hospital can perform many surgeries to relieve uncomfortable symptoms arising from the spine. They are typically procedures to relieve pressure on the nerves and spinal cord caused by damaged discs, bony spurs, overgrown ligament and other degenerative changes in the spine. Occasionally surgery may be necessary to remove growths and correct malalignment or repair instability.
When you visit a consultant with a neurological or spinal problem including persistent back pain, sciatica or related neurological symptoms, they will be able to make rapid clinical assessment and arrange the appropriate investigations for a fast and accurate diagnosis. The most common test undertaken for investigating brain and spine conditions is an MRI scan, but sometimes CT scan, X-rays and Neurophysiological studies may also be required, which are all readily available at Ross Hall Hospital. Following an accurate diagnosis, the consultant will discuss a management plan tailored to your condition.
Some of the common spinal surgeries performed at Ross Hall Hospital include:
During admission for surgery the professional neuro spinal surgery consultants will ensure you are fully supported throughout the journey along with the experienced multidisciplinary team at Ross Hall Hospital.
They will then perform a comprehensive clinical examination of the relevant area that includes the cranial nerves, motor function, sensory function, reflexes, sensation, mobility, the functional assessment of your limbs etc.
Based on the history and examination, the consultant will often request further investigations which include:
Once these tests have been completed, you will have a follow-up consultation to discuss the results and the best course of action going forward.
If surgery is needed, your consultant will discuss the recommended treatment with you. They will go through any risks and complications and answer any questions you have about the procedure. You’ll then agree on a suitable date for your surgery with your consultant, and the Ross Hall Hospital Team will arrange all of the details for your stay.
The majority of patients admitted to Ross Hall Hospital for neuro spinal surgical procedures are short stay, meaning they are discharged within 24 hours, often requiring an overnight stay. For more complex cases, an extra night or two may be required.
All patients recover in a private room and can enjoy the welcoming, clean, modern and friendly environment as they begin their recovery journey.
All patients following surgery will be able to go through a tailored physiotherapy programme put together by the Ross Hall Hospital physiotherapists following their surgery.
Usually, you’ll have a follow-up appointment with your consultant around 6-8 weeks after the surgery. Your consultant will review your recovery and help create an on-going rehabilitation plan for you to return to regular activities like work or sport. Most patients can be discharged after the first follow-up, but some may need one or two further appointments.
Alongside expert neuro spinal surgeons, you can rest assured that you will have a world-class multidisciplinary team by your side from initial consultation to diagnosis, to surgery and throughout your recovery.
