Endoscopic spine surgery is suitable for some kinds of lumbar intervertebral disc problems. I can advise you if such an approach is suitable for your problem, and of the potential benefits and risks of such an approach compared with a standard lumbar microdiscectomy. Both options are now available in my practice, thereby allowing an unbiaised decision to be made on which approach is best suited for your individual case.
If you haven’t any health insurance cover, then spinal surgery in a private hospital can be expensive. My secretary can call the hospitals and get an all-in price for any procedures that I may recommend.
Whilst spinal surgery is expensive, the cost of not being able to work to full capacity is often more financially debilitating.
Yes. I would be very happy to see you and treat you in the public health system also in Tallaght Hospital. An unfortunate result of decades of inadequate resourcing of both the hospital network in general, and spinal surgery specifically, is an admittedly unacceptable long waiting time both to be seen in the outpatients clinic and to be operated on. All patients are seen and operated on on the basis of clinical need.
