Mr Mel Grainger

Orthopaedic Surgeon

MB ChB FRCS (Orth)

I am a full-time Spinal Surgeon at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital. My practice encompasses a wide range of spinal conditions covering all levels of the spine.

I perform fusion and motion preserving procedures for lumbar and cervical problems, as well as managing as many conditions conservatively as possible. I treat sciatica, spinal stenosis, degenerative back pain, arm pain, spinal trauma, tumours and infection.

I carry out my basic spinal training in the West Midlands which was consolidated by a combined Orthopaedic/Neurosurgical Fellowship in Liverpool.
