Suffering from Spinal Problems?

Also known as the backbone, the spine is the central support structure in the body. Made up of bones, tendons, muscles, and other tissues that reach from the base of the skull to the tailbone, it helps you sit, stand, walk, twist, and bend. As it plays a role in almost everything we do, the spine is put under a great deal of strain on a daily basis. It is therefore an area of the body that is susceptible to issues regardless of age. While many spine problems may be the result of sporting injuries, poor lifting techniques, or bad posture, some conditions may affect an individual from birth or are the product of deterioration over time, so are less preventable.

Even if you’re suffering from a mild issue with your spine, it can have a significant impact on your quality of life. Individuals with spine problems often report feelings of discomfort when carrying out even the simplest of tasks. This can therefore be very debilitating for the sufferer, stopping them from carrying out their normal activities. While back pain will more often than not go away naturally within a few weeks or months, sometimes it doesn’t improve and can even get worse. This is when it is important to seek the opinion of a specialist spine Consultant.

Spine Procedures We Offer

At New Victoria Hospital our renowned spine surgeons use the latest technologies and techniques for the correction of a number of common conditions that affect the spine.

Common spine conditions we treat:

  • Cord or nerve compression
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated disc
  • Sciatica

Types of spine surgery we offer include:

  • Laminectomy: To help ease pressure on the spinal cord or the nerve roots, a portion of the vertebrae, called the lamina, is removed from the spine.
  • Microdiscectomy: Often performed to alleviate the issues associated with a herniated disc, a microdiscectomy relieves the pressure on a spinal nerve root by removing the material that is causing discomfort.
  • Lumbar fusion: During lumbar fusion surgery two or more of the vertebrae are fused together to stop the movement of a painful, unstable spinal joint.

Whatever spine condition you are facing, our multidisciplinary team will put together a coordinated treatment plan, from pre-surgery examination to post-operative follow-up, that will boost the chance of rectifying your spine problem.
