Back support could help allay surgery fears

An estimated 30 per cent of the population suffers from a bad back and yet very few actually get anything done about it.

Now a leading spinal surgeon says that people do not need to suffer in silence.

World-renowned surgeon Manoj Krishna carried out more than 250 spinal operations a year and has run a support group in Teesside for 10 years for people who have spinal problems and are considering surgery. This weekend sees the launch of a similar group in York.

“York doesn’t have a Spinal Surgery Service,” says Mr Krishna, consultant orthopaedic and spinal surgeon at North Tees Hospital.
