Spinal surgery

Expert assessment and treatment for spinal concerns.

Living with back pain and other difficult symptoms of spinal problems can have a devastating impact on daily life. It can affect relationships, sleep, your social life and your mental health. But it doesn’t have to be this way. 

You can often manage back pain with non-invasive treatment options such as painkillers, physiotherapy and heat therapy. If these methods do not help reduce your symptoms, you might require surgery. At BMI Werndale Hospital, we offer a range of surgical treatment options to treat spinal pain. 

With us, you’re in safe and caring hands. Our multidisciplinary teams of compassionate healthcare professionals are here to help you recover from pain and discomfort through surgery (if required) and deliver tailored care when and where you need it. 

Beginning your journey to better health with us is easy. You can call us on 01793 814848 or use our simple online booking system to book your initial consultation with a spinal specialist of your choice.

We offer a variety of surgical procedures for back pain, including: 

Spinal fusion surgery starting from £7,200*

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 starting from £9,605*

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

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

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

Spine injection for pain starting from £3,165*

These injections are also known as epidural steroid injections. They 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.
