At BMI Hendon Hospital in North London, we offer a range of successful spinal treatment options. Our team is dedicated to making you better, faster.

Living with back pain can take a devastating toll on your everyday life, making simple things like getting out of bed an immense challenge. But you don’t have to put up with pain. At BMI Hendon Hospital in North London, our dedicated specialists are experts in delivering tailored spinal treatment for people battling back pain. We’re here to help.

We offer a range of surgical options for back pain and spinal problems, including:

Spinal fusion surgery  

Spinal fusion surgery can effectively treat chronic pain in your lumbar (lower) spine by mimicking the natural healing process of broken bones. The procedure involves fusing together two or more of your vertebrae (the bones that form your spinal cord) using a bone graft. This helps your spine heal as a solid unit, helping reduce pain and restore function to your back.

Lumbar spinal decompression surgery

Lumbar spinal decompression is performed to treat compressed nerves. These happen as a result of a range of spinal issues, for example a spinal injury, or a slipped disc in your back. There are three common forms of this procedure:

Laminectomy: when a section of your bone is removed from one of your vertebrae (spinal bones). This helps alleviate pressure on the affected nerve.

Discectomy: when a section of a damaged disc in your back is removed to alleviate pressure on your nerve(s).

Spinal fusion: when one or more of your vertebrae are fused together to strengthen and stabilise your spine.

Lumbar laminectomy 

During this operation your Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon will remove part or all of the vertebral bone in your spine. The procedure helps ease pressure on your spinal cord and nerve roots, reducing pain and improving your mobility. A lumbar laminectomy may be performed along with spinal fusion to help you spine heal as a solid unit.
