SPINAL SURGERY

Where possible I will try to use a minimal access approach as I find that patients are able to leave hospital sooner and have a less traumatic, more rapid recovery.

In all cases I view spinal surgery as a last resort, to be considered when all other measures have failed, or when symptoms become so severe an operation is indicated.
