Spine Surgery


We cary out a range of spine surgery for a wide variety of back and spinal problems.


Our leading Neurosurgeon, Mr. Ian Wang is an experienced leader in Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), utilising the latest robotic, CT navigation and implant technologies – although surgery is most often not the solution.

At Keyhole Neurosurgery, we put the patient first and take time to understand each patient, their condition, history of symptoms and goals in order to provide the most appropriate advice ranging from rest, rehabilitation, strength and functional exercises and in some cases, surgery. You will be fully informed of your options, the risks involved in a way in which reflects our motto – primum non nocere : to first do no harm.

Keyhole surgery techniques allow optimal outcomes with minimal tissue damage leading to faster recovery times and a return to normal activities.

Mr. Wang specialises in keyhole techniques, whilst still providing the full list of traditional options including laminectomy and microdiscectomy, cervical fusion, disc replacement, robotic and CT navigation guided MIS lumbar fusion using a combination of anterior, lateral and posterior approaches.

 

Cervical disc replacement – access to the cervical spine occurs through the front of the neck, removing the affected disc to place a mobile disc which acts like a normal disc.

ACDF – access to the cervical spine occurs through the front of the neck, removing the affected disc to place an interbody cage and appropriate fixation to fix the affected level/s.

ALIF – access to the lumbar spine occurs through the front of the abdomen with the assistance of a vascular, removing the affected disc to place an interbody cage and appropriate fixation to fix the affected level/s.

Lateral LIF – access to the lumbar spine is gained to side of the spine through a tubular, heyhole retractor, removing the affected disc to place an interbody cage to fix the affected level/s. This is commonly also combined with posterior Minimally Invasive (MIS) fixation.

Posterior Fusion (PLIF / TLIF) – access to the lumbar spine occurs through a small keyhole incision on your lower back, removing pressures on the affected nerves. The affected level is then fixated using CT navigation guided Minimally Invasive (MIS) pedicle screws and interbody cage/s.
