Andrew Law – Neurosurgeon & Spinal Surgeon

Mr Law has been working as a Consultant Neurosurgeon in New Zealand since 1997.
He has performed a significant number of complex operations on brains and spines in both the child and adult age groups and continues a busy public and private workload.

Operations

Spine surgery
Mr Law has focussed his spinal surgery practice to managing conditions of the neck (cervical) and chest level (thoracic) spine. This includes the assessment and if necessary, the surgical management of nerve root compressions – causing arm pains – through to post accident and degenerate conditions of the spine where the structure of the spine has been damaged. Mr law also manages tumours of the spine and spinal cord. Surgery can be performed via both anterior and posterior approaches and may require implanted supports (the insertion of grafts, plates and screws, titanium rods).
