Antony Field - Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon

Private Service

Description

After training as an orthopaedic surgeon in New Zealand I completed two years of international fellowship in Surgery of the Spine in Australia and England, working with leading surgeons in all areas of surgery of the spinal column.
  
My training has covered all areas of Spinal Surgery in adults and in children and, because of the highly specialised nature of Spinal Surgery, I now confine my specialist orthopaedic practice to the surgical and non-surgical management of all conditions of the spine. In this way I am able to devote all my energy to maintaining the highest standards in my treatment of the spine. 
 
I consult mainly from Ascot Central but also visit Silverdale; see location details on the right.
I operate mostly at Ascot Hospital but sometimes also at Mercy Hospital.
 

What is Orthopaedics?
This is an area that deals with conditions of the musculoskeletal system (disorders of bones and joints of the limbs and spine). The specialty covers a range of different types of conditions starting with congenital (conditions which children are born with) through to degenerative (conditions relating to the wearing out of joints). The field of orthopaedics covers trauma where bones are broken or injuries are sustained to limbs.
Other conditions that sit under the spectrum of orthopaedics are metabolic conditions, neurological and inflammatory conditions.
