Mr Robert Dunsmuir
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
BSc MB ChB FRCS FRCS
I am a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in spinal surgery. At Spire Leeds Hospital, I treat patients requiring spinal surgery of the lumbar spine. This may be necessitated through conditions such as lumbar back pain, disc prolapse, stenosis and spondylolithesis. I also have an interest in non-operative treatment of spinal conditions.
I trained on the West of Scotland HST programme in orthopaedics and developed an early interest in spinal surgery following a training period with Professor Gordon Waddell.
Further training in spinal surgery in Glasgow was followed by a period as national spine fellow in St James's Hospital Leeds and Leeds General Infirmary.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Robert Dunsmuir at Spire include:
