In this section, I have listed the most common interventional or surgical procedures that I do. Interventions include injection of local anaesthetic and long acting steroid (cortisone injection), manipulations and surgery. Having been referred to a surgeon, one of the expectations you will be offered surgery. However, this is not the case as non-operative treatment options will be considered first if they have not yet been tried.
Generally one gets referred to me after they have had some treatment in the primary care setting. This may include physiotherapy and or injections. However, more often than not, I may repeat the injection before making a final recommendation for further treatment. Sometimes, this will allow me to reassure you or allow me to recommend a more specific physiotherapy or other techniques rather than surgery. It is very important
to understand that the treatment is to be tailored to the individual needs taking into account of your job, expected natural progress of the disease, the risks of any intervention planned, likely outcome in modifying the disease or slowing down its severity along with any medical condition one may have. Risks of any intervention will have to be considered in terms of risk/benefit ration and more importantly risks of progress of disease needs to be considered as well if no intervention is done. Surgery will only be offered if the likely pain relief and improvement of the function that can be gained from surgery outweigh the level of individual needs and risks,. Some of the common procedures done by me are listed below and are considered in a greater detail in subsequent pages.
