About

Mr. Laing was appointed as a Consultant Neurosurgeon with an interest in spinal neurosurgery in 1995. His practice includes both complex spinal neurosurgery and minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery, which can often be performed as day cases. He specializes in the treatment of back pain, leg pain (sciatica), neck pain, arm pain (brachalgia), trauma, tumors, fusion, Chiari malformations, and syringomyelia. In 2000, Mr. Laing was appointed director of higher neurosurgical training for the Eastern Deanery. He was directly involved in neurosurgical training both locally and at the Royal College of Surgeons in London. Mr. Laing has been the secretary of the British Cervical Spine Society and worked to establish the British Association of Spine Surgeons, serving on its Executive. In 2009, he became Clinical Lead for Neurosurgery and in 2013, Clinical Director of Neurosciences. He has overseen many changes within the Neurosurgical centre and introduced key initiatives, including day case spinal surgery. He is a Council member of the Society of British Neurological Surgeons and has been appointed to the Neuroscience clinical commissioning group. Mr. Laing believes that the most important development in spinal surgery over the last few years has been the introduction of minimally invasive surgical techniques, which significantly shorten recovery time. He collaborates with a team of experts, including physiotherapists, sports medicine physicians, neurologists, rheumatologists, and pain specialists. He aspires to achieve the highest standards, audits his work, and publishes his surgical outcomes in peer-reviewed journals.
