Our vision is to be
the centre of excellence for spinal surgery

Welcome to Gold Coast Spine

At Gold Coast Spine we are passionate about improving people’s lives by providing the highest quality spine care. What we do to make this happen is based on over 20 years of experience in orthopaedic surgery and the best information available about treating spinal conditions.

Case Studies

Everyone wants to know what to expect when they visit a specialist for the first time. But your spinal condition is unique. This means that your journey with us is not going to be 100% predictable.

We want to help you better understand what to expect. So, we have developed some example patient journeys based on 20 years of patients coming to Gold Coast Spine.

The Case Studies give you a look into some of the different journeys our patients take with us. You’re probably not “Russell the Farmer” or “Maria the College Student” but you may end up sharing parts of their journeys.

Spine surgery does feature in many of these Case Studies because patient questions about surgery are the most frequent. However, the most common treatment advice Dr Scott-Young gives is not surgical. He stresses that elective spine surgery should be considered only when all other non-surgical options are exhausted.

Going through the Case Studies will also help you think of questions you may want to ask Dr Scott-Young and his staff.
