Spinal Surgery

Spinal Surgery at Pinehill Hospital

What is spinal surgery?

Spinal surgery is a surgical treatment to manage a range of problems associated with your spine.  It diagnoses and treats spinal disorders and conditions to provide pain relief, improve functionality, and avoid permanent impairment.

Spinal surgery is used to treat:

  • Herniated or ruptured discs – where one or more of the discs that cushion your spine bones are damaged.
  • Spinal stenosis – is a narrowing of your spinal column that puts pressure on your spinal cord and nerves.
  • Spondylolisthesis - where one or more bones in your spine slip out of place.
  • Vertebral fractures - caused by osteoporosis or injury to your spinal bones.
  • Degenerative disc disease or spinal disc damage - can happen as you get older.

Neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons who specialise in spinal surgery perform back surgery.

Back surgery is considered when conservative treatments have not worked and your pain remains persistent and is impacting the quality of your life. It involves decompressing, moving, fixing, and replacing vertebral structures to relieve back pain.
