The Holly Private Hospital is home to world-class consultant doctors who are specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of problems affecting the entire spine, from the head (cranium) to the mid-back (thoracic) and lower back (lumbar & sciatic) regions. A posterior excision of disc prolapse (a lumbar decompression) is recommended for people with spinal stenosis, fractures or tissue swelling in the spine, cancer spreading to the spine or for those suffering from spinal stenosis. The procedure is used to improve symptoms such as persistent pain and numbness.
This operation is carried out under general anaesthetic. An incision is made through the back muscles and the lamina (the bone surrounding the spinal cord). At The Holly Hospital, we provide comprehensive care throughout the patient journey. Our team also works side by side with musculoskeletal physiotherapists who can help with rehabilitation to get you back to maximum flexibility and movement in the shortest possible time.
We offer an all-inclusive self-pay package for posterior excision of disk prolapse (1 or 2 levels), with prices starting from £6,650 (T&Cs apply). For more information and eligibility criteria, speak to one of our self-pay advisors by calling
