Conditions Treated

I have developed a specialist practice focusing on the traumatic and degenerative aspects of spinal surgery. I offer treatment for a whole variety of spinal problems. In cervical (neck) and conditions-treated-side-imagelumbar (lower back) regions, I treat simple and complex spinal problems with a variety of techniques including microdiscectomy, decompression of the spine, spinal fusion and disc replacements. I also offer the very latest techniques in spinal surgery including minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery, vertebroplasty, and non fusion technology for back pain in order to treat your condition with the least damage to your own tissues. Complimenting my surgical procedures, I offer a wide variety of injection techniques for the treatment of spinal pain.

The philosophy of my treatments are twofold.

I always try to help my patients without surgery where possible. If surgery is required, I use minimally invasive (keyhole) techniques to allow quicker recovery and lessen the discomfort.

Conditions I treat include:
