Spinal Surgery

Spinal Surgery involves the diagnosis and treatment of spinal disorders and conditions when conservative treatment hasn’t resolved the issue. The purpose of spinal surgery is to provide pain relief, improve functionality and avoid permanent impairment.

Neurosurgeons

and

orthopaedic surgeons

who have further specialised can perform spinal surgery. Surgery is performed to take pressure off

compressed nerves

within the

spinal column

. Nerve compression is often caused by

herniated discs

or

spinal stenosis

, which can lead to numbness, tingling and muscle weakness. Surgery can stabilise an unstable spine from conditions such as

Spondylolisthesis

or

spinal fractures

that can lead to

back pain

(lumbar pain),

leg pain

and

pinched nerves

. Spinal surgery is also used to correct spinal deformities such as

scoliosis

and

kyphosis.

Other common conditions that can be treated with spinal surgery include

neck pain

(cervical pain),

sciatica

,

tumours

,

Infections

,

Degenerative disc disease

and

Lumbar degenerative conditions.
