We have a team of expert consultants at West Midlands Hospital who work together to provide a comprehensive spinal service. We have a consultant neurospinal surgeon, a consultant neurosurgeon, a consultant anaesthetist and a consultant orthopaedic surgeon.
So if your back or neck pain has been persisting for six weeks or more, come and see one of our consultants to discuss your pain and the options available to manage it. They can refer you for diagnostic tests and physiotherapy treatment, as well as providing pain relieving injections or spinal surgery if required.
