At the London Spine Unit we specialise in the treatment of Vertebral Compression Fractures using Balloon Kyphoplasty and Vertberoplasty. Using specialist equipment and anaesthetic techniques, our world leading experts use advanced techniques that avoid the removal of too much bone and treat spinal stenosis using innovative surgical techniques. Our patients usually go home on the same day after surgery ie walk in and walk out same day surgery.
About day case surgery
At Harley Street Hospital, we offer day case spinal stenosis surgery performed by a highly qualified team of surgeons. This provides patients with multiple benefits, such as the following:
-Shorter hospital stays. Due to this and to preventive measures, lower risk of contracting COVID-19.
-We apply local anaesthesia, avoiding general anaesthesia and its complications.
-Lower infection rates.
-Fewer post-surgery complications.
-Cheaper than surgery requiring an overnight stay.
