Surgical Treatment

Surgery is recommended for a small percentage of patients with spinal disorders, and should not be looked upon as a “cure” for back and neck pain.

The success of surgery can not be guaranteed, and in many cases surgery is not feasible or practical in the treatment of extensive degenerative disease.

Surgery is performed at New Hall Hospital for private and NHS patients.
