MISS – A REVOLUTION IN SPINAL SURGERY
A new beginning
The Spinal Foundation has successfully treated over 10,000 patients, many of whom were told ‘the pain is all in your head’ or ‘you’ll just have to live with it’. Our robust audited techniques are used by over 650 spinal surgeons world-wide and have helped thousands of people return to a fuller, more active life.
Finding the real causes of pain
Today’s lifestyles cause weak back muscles and malposture so problems and pain arise from the nerves as well as the discs. Our work involves: clearing the nerves from irritation by ligaments and scarring; overgrowth of bones and joints; and compression by disc bulging and inflammation.
Improving your lifestyle
We can address the problems of arthritis, narrowing of the spine, scarring, infected abscesses, tumours and large disc protrusions, bone spikes digging into nerves and so-called ‘instability’. Our techniques can help the elderly and the infirm, as well as younger people, to return to a healthier life style.
Protecting your future
Our aim is to preserve your options for future treatment should your spine continue to degenerate so that you can take advantage of evolving surgical techniques. For your further information, please refer to the following information about conditions and treatment. (see also Glossary of Terms)
