Back and spinal treatment at Edinburgh Hospital
Give us a call0131 447 2340
Any of us, at any stage of our lives, can suffer from some kind of back pain or spine problem. This is because we put immense strain on this area of our body every single day. Poor posture, bad lifting techniques and not warming up properly before exercise can all contribute to these problems. Of course, there are also other causes that are less preventable, including rheumatism, bone deterioration, vertebral compression fractures due to osteoporosis and ankylosing spondylitis, which can result in soreness, deformity and incapacity. Similarly, birth conditions like scoliosis (spinal curvature) or pectus excavatum can cause problems.
If you suffer from even a mild condition that affects your back or spine, you know how painful and uncomfortable it can be, but we can help. We can offer comprehensive, fast and specialist diagnosis and treatment for back and spine problems from slipped discs and fractures, to sciatica.
Our highly trained Orthopaedic and Neurosurgeons are renowned in their area of expertise. They can offer reassurance, peace of mind and support throughout diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.
The services available include rapid, point-of-care diagnostic imaging or screening of your back and spine to support an early diagnosis. This may include using the very latest MRI scanning facilities, ultrasound or conventional X-Rays.
Once a diagnosis has been made, our specialists can suggest any follow-up treatment you may need.
Our team also works closely with our physiotherapists to help you get back to maximum flexibility and movement as quickly as possible.
We have two spinal packages available:
- Consultation with a 1 part MRI = £695
- Consultation with a 2 part MRI = £850
