About This Website

 C Ulbricht

Welcome to LondonSpine.co.uk!

This website has been designed for patients with spinal conditions. It aims to give information about a variety of common spinal conditions, investigations and treatment options. The information reflects my personal views and experience based on available medical evidence to my best knowledge. It does not, however, give information about specific individual cases and conditions can vary from patient to patient. I would advise patients always to discuss their individual case and treatment options with their treating doctor or therapist.

I trained as  a neurosurgeon but have a special interest in the assessment and treatment of spinal conditions including spine surgery. My elective operative work is almost exclusively spinal and I see more than 1500 new patients per year with spinal conditions from simple low back pain to complex spinal tumours. I do not, however perform any surgery on children or for scoliosis.

In the drop down menu at the top and left hand side of the screen you can find various categories or pages. A single left ‘click’ on the mouse will open the introduction page of this category and explain the content. If you just move your mouse over the category at the top, a drop-down menu will open and show you the sub-categories. A further single ‘click’ will open the page.

If you do not find the topic you are looking for immediately, you can enter the word into the search box on the right side of the screen and press ‘return’ on your keyboard. If the topic is covered on this website, it will take you automatically to it.

Some terms/words you find are explained elsewhere on the website. These terms are in Italic blue and will turn red when moving the arrow over it. A simple left ‘click’ will take you to the page where it is explained. It will open the new page in the same or a new window.  To go back to the page where you read the term, ‘click’ on the arrow pointing to the left in the top bar of the screen or simply close the new window.
