Spinal and neurosurgery

The Spinal and Neurosurgery Unit concentrates exclusively on treating problems of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine for patients. Our fully integrated approach to neck and back problems includes conservative treatment and pain management; scoliosis assessment and treatment; spinal stenosis surgery, spinal fusion and osteoporosis in addition to micro-discectomy. As specialists in the management of spinal disorders, patients are referred to the spinal unit for evaluation and treatment from all over the country.

All patients are fully assessed clinically and with appropriate investigations such as X-ray, CT and MRI scans. Cases will be reviewed by a multidisciplinary team comprising a spine surgeon, pain specialist, specialist nurse and physiotherapist. Treatments include physical therapy, spinal injections and all forms of surgery.

The Circle Bath Spine Unit brings together leading specialists including consultant orthopaedic surgeons Mr Otto von Arx and Mr Priyan Landham,  consultant neurosurgeons Mr Richard Edwards, Mr Greg Fellows, Mr Venkat Iyer, Mr Ian Pople, consultant pain anaesthetists Dr Michael Coupe and Dr Andrew Souter and consultant radiologist Steve Morgan. The multidisciplinary team are supported by clinical specialists Rachel Meakin and Keith Greenfield.

Circle hospitals are recognised centres of excellence for spinal surgery and have some of the most technically advanced diagnostics available today. We offer both non-surgical and surgical solutions in the management of spinal conditions.
