Thanks for the query,
Severe spinal canal
stenosis that doesnot improve with conservative treatment (medicines and physiotherapy
) may need surgical treatment
. How ever, before surgery one must undergo a detailed neurological evaluation particularly to note the presence of neurological deficit. This will help us decide about the surgery. How ever, severe pain
per se is an indication for surgery.
The centres in UK you can visit are King's collge London or queen squre London. UCL institute of Neurology, Queen Squre London. Excellent neurology and neurosurgery facility are available in these institutions.
