Back surgery is my main area of competence. I also treat children with back problems. Challenging scoliosis surgery is another area of special interest. I am also interested in rare skeletal disorders and related orthopaedic problems.
Back pain is a common problem. The term back pain generally refers to lower back pain, which may be localised back pain, pain that radiates to the leg, or pain due to poor back posture. Should you have back pain that is constant, radiates to the limbs or wakes you up at night, visit Orton for an assessment of its cause. We will help you find quick and effective relief for your pain.
