At Spire Cardiff Hospital's our Spinal service offers patients with neck and back pain some of the most advanced and up-to-date surgical techniques. Our team of highly trained specialist orthopaedic spinal surgeons, physiotherapists and diagnosticians will look after your individual clinical requirements throughout your treatment.
Three key areas that set us apart - clinical quality, education and research
A number of spinal procedures were performed at Cardiff's premier private hospital during 2007-2008. The procedures undertaken included, facet joint injections for neck and back pain, sciatica, microdiscectomy, discectomy, disc replacement and other minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques.
The spine consists of 33 bones (vertebrae) and forms a channel through which your spinal cord and nerves pass. It's little wonder that spinal surgeons at Spire Cardiff Hospital see patients from all over South Wales to relieve numbness, weakness and both back and leg pain with spinal decompression. The aim is to remove the bone, ligament or disc that is pressing on the nerves and return you to pain-free mobility.
Our highly qualified orthopaedic spinal surgeons perform these procedures in laminar flow theatres which reduce the risk of infection.
Following your procedure, your rehabilitation plan from our expert physiotherapy team and nursing staff aims to have you up about and ready for home in days. To complete your care our specialist physiotherapy unit uses internationally recognised techniques and advanced rehabilitation to aid your recovery.
At Spire Cardiff Hospital our highly skilled spinal surgeons are continuously updating their skills and surgical techniques to ensure we deliver the optimum care to our patients.
