What is back surgery?

When one or more nerves in your spine are put under pressure they can cause pain; back surgery is usually performed to relieve some of this pressure. The type of back surgery recommended will depend on your individual needs and the source of the pain.

At Spire Cheshire Hospital you can benefit from rapid access to an expert team of highly trained orthopaedic surgeons, pain physicians, rheumatologists, radiologists and physiotherapists who will provide you with the highest quality of personalised care whatever your needs.


When is spinal surgery needed?

Pressure on the spinal nerves causes problems with the traffic of nerve signals to and from the brain. Compressed nerves can also lead to sciatica, which is usually seen with these symptoms:

- pain in the lower back, buttock, leg and foot - pins and needles - muscle weakness and/or wasting - loss of sensation

The type of surgery recommended for you will depend on the source of your back pain, as there are several causes of nerve compression. These include:

- Disc prolapse/herniation – More commonly known as a 'slipped' disc, this occurs when a disc of tissue bulges out between two vertebrae - Spinal stenosis – This happens when the spinal canal becomes narrow due to cartilage in the vertebrae becoming worn or inflamed - Spondylolisthesis – This is the name for when a vertebrae slips out of position

We pride ourselves on our clinical excellence, you'll be looked after by an experienced multi-disciplinary care team.
