Areas of expertise
Mr Quaile is a Consultant Spinal & Orthopaedic Surgeon. For the last fifteen years Mr Quaile's practice has been that of non operative assessment, investigation, treatment and surgery of the spine. The treatments Mr Quaile offers are aimed towards pain control in the first instance ie. caudal epidurals, facet joint blocks, trigger point injections etc. or if appropriate referral for physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic etc. However if conservative treatment fails then the latest surgical techniques can be employed, which are as minimally invasive as possible.
