Introducing Dr Anand Segar – new Spinal Surgeon operating from Ormiston Hospital and supporting the growing needs of our community.
Ormiston’s population is booming, and so too are the demands for health support. We are pleased to announce we are extending our spinal service at Ormiston Hospital – now including expert and internationally trained spinal surgeon Dr Anand Segar.
Ormiston Hospital is pleased to be able to support the growing needs of our community with a highly sought after spinal surgeon; Dr Segar.
Dr Segar’s approach to patient care is personable, balanced and individualized; “I only recommend surgery when necessary through a shared-decision making process” explains Anand. His focus comprises the full spectrum of spinal care (cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine). Dr Segar always exhausts non-operative treatment before proceeding with discussions about surgery.
Where surgery is the best treatment solution Dr Segar’s patients are in the capable hands of a highly experienced and caring surgeon. Dr Segar specialises in all aspects of adult and paediatric spinal surgery. Having completed his medical education at the University of Auckland he subsequently trained in orthopaedic surgery in New Zealand. He travelled to the UK to further his education and was awarded his Ph.D. from the University of Oxford, U.K.
He has also completed three prestigious, highly competitive, and world-renowned spine surgical fellowships in the United States working under leaders in the field. This has provided him with a unique and comprehensive understanding of spinal problems afflicting patients of all age groups, from birth to the more venerable patients, in any aspect of their spine, all the way from their skull to their tailbone.
Dr Segar’s surgical passion is in minimally invasive spine surgery, spinal deformity, scoliosis, and revision spine surgery but also extends to treatment of:
- Degenerative disc disease (lumbar and cervical)
- Disc herniation (lumbar and cervical)
- Sciatica and radiculopathy
- Spinal instability
- Spinal stenosis (lumbar and cervical)
- Adult spinal deformity
- Paediatric spinal deformity
- Flat back
Dr Segar splits his time between his public position as a paediatric spinal surgeon at Starship Children’s Hospital and adult and paediatric spinal surgeon in private practice. As well as being highly trained, he has received numerous awards for his research and serves as a Deputy Editor for the journal Clinical Spine Surgery.
When not at work, he enjoys spending time with his family, a good run with his dog, and reading.
