Spinal trauma

Spinal trauma

Injuries to the vertebral column can be very serious and often require urgent attention. If the spinal column is unstable it may need to be stabilised with surgery. Our spinal surgeons are experienced with vertebral fractures and luxations including the use of a variety of techniques to stabilise the vertebrae.

  • Fracture stabilisation.
    • SOP Plating system.
    • Pins and PMMA techniques.
  • Atlantoaxial subluxation.
  • Traumatic intervertebral disc extrusion.
