Lumbar Discectomy

This operation is to remove protruding disc and decompress lumbar nerves thus relieving sciatica.


Simple Lumbar Fusion

This is the commonest fusion I do - it's as simple as possible but not too simple.


Complex fusion with pedicle screws

Pedicle screws give secure fixation in the spine and give added stability while awaiting fusion.


Far lateral discectomy and decompression

Sometimes discs prolapse out to the side rather than backwards - this requires a different approach



The coccyx, our residual tail, can be painful after a fall, requiring removal.
