Addenbrookes Hospital

– Spinal Surgery 

This fellowship provides an excellent training opportunity for post CCT neurosurgical or orthopaedic trainees with an interest in spinal surgery. The fellow will work closely with a team of 8 spinal consultants (6 neurosurgical, 2 orthopaedic), and will gain exposure to a wide range of spinal pathologies and procedures, including cervical, thoracic and lumbar stenosis, trauma, tumour, including intradural and MSCC, and paediatric deformity. The unit has a strong tradition of utilising minimally invasive techniques and navigation. Fellows are encouraged to participate in audit and research activities, with the expectation being that at least one clinical paper will have been prepared and submitted by the end of the year-long fellowship.
