If you sustain a spinal fracture, this can cause broken fragments of vertebrae to pinch and cause damage to your spinal nerve or your spinal cord. Depending on the severity of your injury, this can result in pain, difficulty walking, or paralysis. Severe damage to your spine may require surgical intervention.

Our team will work alongside you during your surgery and provide you with rehabilitative advice to ensure a quick and healthy recovery.
