We are all Consultants who specialise in the treatment of Spinal disorders.
By seeing a specialist you avoid the 'mixed messages' that can sometimes occur with regard to what treatment is likely to help you get back to function.
As spine specialists we all have the ability to diagnose and treat. Some uncommon conditions occur are infrequent so we will sometimes ask another team member to see and traeat you if that would be safest.
Even within spinal disorders there is 'specialisation'.
