Information about Spina bifida
Spina was an Etruscan port city, established by the end of the 6th century BCE, on the Adriatic at the ancient mouth of the Po, south of the lagoon which would become the site of Venice.
The London Spine unit at The Harley Street Hospital we specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of Spina bifida. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Spina bifida. Xrays cannot often diagnose the problem and the best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Spina bifida.
If you have been diagnosed with Spina bifida or you have been advised to have surgery on your spine including your Thoracic Spine then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Spina bifida can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.

Information about London
London is the capital and largest city of England and the United Kingdom. The city stands on the River Thames in the south-east of England, at the head of its 50-mile (80 km) estuary leading to the North Sea. London has been a major settlement for two millennia. Londinium was founded by the Romans. The City of London, London’s ancient core and financial centre − an area of just 1.12 square miles (2.9 km2) and colloquially known as the Square Mile − retains boundaries that closely follow its medieval limits.[note 1] The adjacent City of Westminster is an Inner London borough and has for centuries been the location of much of the national government. Thirty one additional boroughs north and south of the river also comprise modern London. London is governed by the mayor of London and the London Assembly.[note 2]
London is one of the world’s most important global cities and has been called the world’s most powerful, most desirable, most influential, most visited, most expensive, sustainable, most investment-friendly, and most-popular-for-work city. It exerts a considerable impact upon the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transportation. London ranks 26th out of 300 major cities for economic performance. It is one of the largest financial centres and has either the fifth- or sixth-largest metropolitan area GDP.
