Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Balaji Purushothaman at Spire include:

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon working at Sunderland Royal Hospital. I underwent my orthopaedic training in the northern region, with a special interest in spinal surgery. I then pursued the reputed AO Spine Fellowship at the Princess Alexandra, Mater and Lady Cilento Children’s Hospitals in Brisbane. I am a member of the British Association of Spinal Surgeons and Eurospine.
I enjoy teaching and am a faculty on various courses, and I also convene the FRCS course for trainees. I have been published in both national and international journals.
I specialise in treating patients with neck and back problems. The treatment is tailored to each individual patient, and can range from non-surgical methods such as physiotherapy and injections to surgery, when appropriate. I perform microdiscectomy, decompression surgery, fusion surgery and vertebroplasty.
I consult on Monday afternoon and I am available for choose and book.
