Spinal Trauma

Dr Lee Yang is a Gold Coast neurosurgeon and spine surgeon in Queensland who specialises in keyhole/complex spine surgery and advanced neurovascular surgery as well as all aspects of brain, spine and peripheral nerve surgeries.


Dr Yang has completed a Ph.D. study in spinal trauma, published multiple papers in leading journals and received multiple awards for his research in spinal trauma.

Spine trauma is damage to the spine caused from a sudden traumatic injury caused by an accidental fall or any other physical injury. Spinal injuries may occur while playing, performing normal activities, operating heavy machines, lifting heavy objects, driving automobiles, or when you suffer a fall. Injury to spine may cause various conditions including fractures, dislocation, subluxation, disc prolapse, haematoma and partial or complete tears of ligaments.

The most common symptom is pain. Spinal injury causes weakness and sensory loss if the spinal nerves are damaged. Symptoms may proceed to paralysis, limited movement, and immobility. Spinal injuries are diagnosed using spine X-rays and a CT or MRI of the spine.

The treatment will depend entirely on the specific type and location of the injury. You may be treated with pain medications, physiotherapy, brace or surgery.

Surgery is recommended when other treatments are a failure or inappropriate. Surgery for spinal conditions depends on the type and severity of injury.


Surgery is performed to the highest standards. All patients deserve the very best in care, especially when they are dealing with debilitating spinal conditions.

Preoperative CT showed T12/L1 dislocation and L1 fracture with kyphotic deformity. A satisfactory reduction and stabilization performed during the surgery as shown on intraoperative Xray and confirmed on postoperative CT.
