I recently perfromed the first lumbar endoscopic discectomies in Ireland.
A 7mm incision is all that's required now using a very recent advancement in spine surgery. This avoids the necessity for longer incisions and avoids any muscle dissection/bruising.
Ask if this approach is suitable for your lumbar disc herniation.
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.
