Mr Andreas Demetriades (M.Phil, FRCS)

The Scottish Back Clinic combines the expertise of a Consultant Neurosurgeon and Specialist Spine Surgeon supported by a team of collaborative professionals across hospital and clinic locations in Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth and Stirling.

Our multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of spinal and neurosurgical conditions ranges from conservative management (medical therapy, targeted physiotherapy, steroid or analgesic injections) through to surgical options for spinal conditions including disc prolapse (cervical or thoracic or lumbar spine), spinal stenosis, degenerative spine disease, scoliosis, ankylosing spondylitis and back pain. We routine deal with a large number of patients suffering from the full range of spinal conditions.

We also offer the only privately available interventional treatment in Scotland for trigeminal neuralgia.

Internationally recognised expertise

Our Consultant Neurosurgeon and Spinal Surgeon, Mr Andreas Demetriades FRCS(Neuro.Surg), FEBNS, is a globally recognised expert in the field of complex neurosurgery. He regularly lectures at medical conferences and courses across Europe, North America and South America and is passionate about the highest levels of care and surgical technology and innovation.

Our aim is to assess your conditions, understand the reasons behind the symptoms, and try and find solutions to allow the return to normal lifestyle. We try to avoid surgery where possible, and when needed we can offer a wide range of techniques and technologies, including minimally invasive spine surgery, motion preservation surgery, and complex fusion surgery.

All options are openly discussed and all decisions are taken jointly with our patients and their carers.
