Discover the different types of back surgery and treatments available at Practice Plus Group centres…
Spinal decompression is the relief of pressure on one or many pinched nerves in the spinal column. It can be achieved through surgical and non-surgical techniques.
A surgical procedure, performed using keyhole surgery, during which a portion, or the whole, of a disc in the spinal column is removed to relieve pressure on a spinal nerve.
Epidural steroid injections can temporarily relieve pain caused by inflammation in the spine and improve function.
A lumbar facet joint injection involves injecting a small amount of local anaesthetic (numbing agent) and/or steroid medication, which can anaesthetise the facet joints and block the pain.
An invasive surgical treatment during which a small portion of the arch of a spinal vertebrae is removed to alleviate pressure on a pinched nerve.

This is the best hospital I have ever been in. The care and efficiency were excellent. My operation was conducted by a top class surgeon and anaesthetist who made me feel relaxed and secure. The team in the Kingfisher ward were kind and professional with good bedside manners and sense of humour. There were no delays in the treatment. My stay was made as comfortable as possible and I thank everyone involved. I am now recovering well.
I would recommend Practice Plus Group and would use them again if I need to. So, so grateful to all of them.
I attended [Practice Plus Group Surgical Centre, St Mary’s Portsmouth] Treatment Centre on Sunday with my 7 year old daughter as she had broken her ankle and just wanted to feedback on our experience. The centre was exceptionally busy but every member of staff we encountered was amazing: positive, calm and just absolute stars! The situation could have easily felt really out of control with how busy it was but we were given regular updates to waiting times and to thank us for our patience. We were seen by a lovely woman on triage, the most smiley technician at X-ray and a doctor who took time to explain what was happening to my daughter. I just wanted to say thank you for everything you do.
I can not speak more highly of the staff here. Everybody I dealt with and saw with others were incredible, be it the surgeon or bed chaperones.
Had to attend Practice Plus today and had an amazing experience. Staff are so caring and compassionate I would recommend to anyone. This was as an NHS patient.
