My Approach to Spinal Surgery

In the UK fully trained Spinal Surgeons may either be of Orthopaedic or Neurosurgical background with comprehensive training in all aspects of spinal surgery. A spinal fellowship programme at the end of one’s specialist registrar training is mandatory. With a growing elderly population, more and more patients with spinal conditions are being referred and it is important that they and others select the surgeon who is fully trained in all aspects of spinal surgery. For me spinal surgery became of interest during my neurosurgical training as well as my spine fellowship at Nottingham when I trained under some excellent surgeons to gather this interest. As a consultant spinal surgeon in Leeds since 2009, I have established my practice with special interest in certain areas of spinal surgery including minimally invasive spinal surgery, lateral access surgery, degenerative spine and spinal tumours........
