Private spinal surgery in Rochdale

Relieve your leg or back pain from compressed spinal nerves with our spinal procedures at The Highfield Hospital in Rochdale.

Spinal surgery can be used to relieve symptoms from compressed nerves in your spine. These include:

  • Pain in your legs, back, buttocks or hips
  • Weakness in your legs
  • Difficulty walking or bending down
  • A numb or tingling sensation in your legs or feet

Your nerves might become compressed following a spinal injury, a tumour (an abnormal growth along your spine) or a narrowing of the space around your spinal cord, which is known as spinal stenosis. A slipped disc (also known as herniated or prolapsed disc) can also cause compressed spinal nerves. It occurs when the inside of a disc that sits between each of your vertebrae (spinal bones) pushes against your surrounding nerves.

At The Highfield Hospital, your Orthopaedic Surgeon will work with other specialists across our hospital – including Radiologists, Spinal Surgeons and Physiotherapists – to diagnose your symptoms and create a customised treatment plan. As part of your treatment with us, you might receive private physiotherapy sessions to encourage movement in your back or legs, spinal injection therapy (a course of steroid injections) to relieve your pain, or be prescribed pain medication. But if your mobility or pain continues to worsen, your Orthopaedic Surgeon could suggest spinal surgery as an alternative treatment option.

Don’t let your pain decide how you live your life. Find fast, effective help for your symptoms by phoning our team on 01706 655121 or booking your appointment online today to receive a consultation with an Orthopaedic Specialist within 48 hours.

At The Highfield Hospital, we perform a variety of spinal surgeries, including:

Lumbar spinal decompression surgery starting from £10,468*

Lumbar spinal decompression surgery is usually performed to treat compressed nerves from a narrowing of your spinal column, also known as spinal stenosis. This surgery will involve carefully removing the parts of your tissue that are putting pressure on your spinal cord and its surrounding nerves.

Lumbar laminectomy starting from £7,828*

During a lumbar laminectomy, your Orthopaedic Surgeon will shift your compressed nerve back to the centre of your spinal column and remove the section of your bone or ligament that is putting pressure on your spinal nerves.

Lumbar microdiscectomy starting from £7,910*

Lumbar microdiscectomy uses an operating microscope to remove the damaged section of your slipped disc (also known as herniated or prolapsed disc) that is putting pressure on the nerves around your spine.

*Prices shown above are a guide price for patients that are paying for their treatment themselves. These prices can vary depending on your diagnosis and recommended treatment. At Highfield Hospital, the cost of your treatment will always be confirmed in writing. Further terms and conditions apply.
