Mr Knight has retired from endoscopic spinal surgery. Mr Knight continues to see patients to provide an experienced and thorough assessment of their spinal problems.

He now offers patients, treatment using Innovative interventional Pain Management procedures including Cluneal Nerve Trigger Point Radiofrequency Ablation and referral to colleagues as necessary.

The purpose of this web site is to educate patients to make them aware that there are alternatives to open conventional spine surgery.



Offering successful results based upon an unparalleled experience since 1990 of focused pioneering dedicated treatment using Endoscopic Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, The Spinal Foundation has enabled over 10,000 people to enjoy a fuller, more active life.

We can help those deemed too elderly or infirm for surgery, those undergoing pain management or behavioural therapy - even if you were told ‘the pain is in your head’ or ‘you’ll just have to live with it’ or you have "Memory Pain" or “it is just wear and tear” by conventional doctors and surgeons. We are at the cutting edge - seeking means to rebuild your discs, and ways to restore your love for life.
