Advanced Surgery

Dr Moloney has always kept up with new and emerging technology for spinal surgery.

He is currently using the Mazor robotic arm at Wollongong Private Hospital for complex spinal surgery.  This allows him to map out the exact place to insert the pedicle screws into a patient's spine and takes a lot of the guesswork out of it making the operation much safer for the patient.  Dr Moloney previously performed the same types of operations, however, with the Mazor robotic arm it means that he can be confident about placing screws in a patient's spine  further up the spine where the pedicles decrease in size and it gets a lot trickier.  This exciting technology is making life easier for the surgeons and decreasing the chance of complications later on for the patient which is great for everyone. 

Dr Moloney operates in some of the most well-equipped hospitals in Australia. His patients benefit from leading-edge technology in the hands of an experienced practitioner.

Dr Google Vs Specialist Spine Surgeon

You’ve hurt your back and you just want to know how bad is it?  So it’s straight to Dr Google you go.  We all do it.  It’s just so easy these days but how accurate is Dr Google?  I think sometimes you can get a bit of an idea of what is going on by comparing notes with other people online.  It’s basically hit and miss though.What Dr Google doesn’t do is ask you the questions about your back pain that to you and me seem not that important and perhaps irrelevant to your problem.  To a specialist spinal surgeon who know exactly what they are looking for it's another story.  If they are good they have probably worked out exactly what the problem is before you get to the end of your story.
