Mr Dorward is an established leader in the fields of spinal surgery and endoscopic pituitary surgery. With over 15 years consultant experience and recognised expertise in these fields he aims to apply minimally invasive methods as widely as possible.
Mr Dorward's main interest is in the treatment of spinal conditions. In the cervisal spine he treats mainly degenerative conditions and has experience in the use of prosthetic disc replacement to maximise the retained motion and minimise subsequent deterioration. The lumbar spine is not so amenable to reconstruction, sometimes needing fusion surgery.
