Your treatment

Your consultation appointment will take place at the Nuffield Bristol Hospital where we will keep you informed during every stage of your treatment. Our surgeons have been commended on their ability to talk patients through their condition and to explain the reasons behind the pain and discomfort that you are experiencing.

If appropriate, your surgeon may refer you for a diagnostic scan. The spine centre provides the full range of diagnostic facilities - including digital x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and electromyography (EMG) studies to test the integrity and functionality of nerves.

Once you have had any necessary diagnostic scans, your surgeon will talk these through with you and explain if there are options for treatment.

We address the entire spectrum of spinal disease through both traditional and minimally invasive surgical treatment, and non-surgical treatment options. Degenerative disorders, trauma, tumours, and vascular diseases are treated through a team approach that includes clinical specialists with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal disorders. This includes Radiologists and Physiotherapists.
