Survey of spinal therapeutic procedures in the United Kingdom

, : Survey of spinal therapeutic procedures in the United Kingdom. European Spine Journal 6(5): 294-297

The type and frequency of spinal therapeutic work being undertaken in the United Kingdom (UK) by clinicians with an interest in the surgical treatment of disorders of the spine (primary and secondary subspecialty interest) were evaluated by means of a postal questionnaire. The willingness of respondents to take part in postgraduate spinal training was determined along with issues regarding accessibility of spinal services to non-specialist physicians in the health service in the UK. The results of 450 respondents provided insight into the types of procedures taking place, for example: primary spinal decompression was regularly carried out by 76% of surgeons, while at least 20% of respondents regularly carried out 66% of the procedures surveyed. We found that 10% of surgeons indicated that they were prepared to participate actively in postgraduate spinal surgical training.
