The Centre for Spinal and Neurosurgery at Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital is the only private centre outside of London that carries out the full range of spinal and neurosurgical procedures, including complex cranial surgery (brain surgery).
Why choose Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital for your spinal or neurosurgical treatment?
We’re based next to one of the largest teaching hospitals and NHS centres for Spinal and Neurosurgery in the country, working with the UK’s top spinal and neurosurgical Consultants.
Our expert team performs over 400 complex spinal and neurosurgical procedures every year with outstanding results. This vast experience is essential when working on complex cases, ensuring we put patient care at the forefront.
As well as the best advice and care during your procedure, we’re committed to your recovery. Our specialist spinal nurse sees all of our adult private spinal patients during their time in hospital and is on the end of the telephone for aftercare advice once you are discharged.
Physiotherapy is included in your treatment at no extra cost, whether you’re an insured patient or paying for yourself. We have the largest national network of physiotherapists outside the NHS, all registered with at least three years’ experience. Find out more about our physiotherapy service.
We have also received an "Outstanding" rating from the health care regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), following an inspection in February 2017. The CQC highlighted the investment in new evidence-based techniques and technologies to support the delivery of high quality care including for spinal and neurosurgery.
