Herniated disc surgery

Treatment: Slipped disc surgery
Provider: Brussels Neurosurgical Center
Date: Mar 2010

Mr S. from Scotland contacted the Centre Neurochirurgical de Bruxelles through the Private Healthcare UK website seeking treatment for left leg radicular pain he had been experiencing.  He had waited months to be seen by a physiotherapist in the UK, and for a lumbar CT spine scan to rule out a disk herniation.  Centre Neurochirurgical arranged hospital admission within 15 days in order to have a lumbar MRI scan done.  This demonstrated a voluminous left L4-L5 disk herniation, and he was operated on the very next day by Dr Frederic Collignon.

The surgical procedure went well and the patient could walk without pain the day after the surgery.  He came to Brussels by plane, stayed four days in the hospital, with his wife, and the overall cost was 5,230 euros.
