We have two theatres that are dedicated to this complex matrix of care, and we offer our surgeons a dedicated team of Operating Room Personnel appertaining to spinal surgery. Both theatres are equipped with laminar flow and state of the art surgical equipment.

Spine surgery undertaken ranges from microsurgical procedures, minimally invasive techniques to major reconstructive and deformity pathology. 

Video transmission of live surgery is a regular occurrence, allowing visiting surgeons from around the globe gain expertise from the complex procedures we undertake. This is always a challenging time but one the Operating Department Personnel team takes on with enthusiasm, and always rises to the occasion with commitment and professionalism. 

We work closely with many members of the multidisciplinary teams across the trust ensuring our patients receive the highest standard of care during their unconscious state. 

The team is always looking to expand its workforce and the team are educated to a high level in this field of surgery and strive to deliver safe and quality patient care within the operating suite.

The team is lead by Sue Corbett, and supported by deputy team leaders Stephanie Brown and Christine Hurdell.

Our daily vision is to enhance our practice by:

  • Forward thinking in our preparation and planning prior to delivery of care.
  • Formulate systems for maintaining high quality and safe standards of practice.
  • Use professional networks to share wisdom in helping each other to address the many challenges unique to each spine patient when they come to our clinical area.
