Dr Greg Finch is an orthopaedic surgeon at Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. He is trained in all aspects of spinal surgery. He however has a special interest in minimally invasive spine surgery, adult deformity and cervical spine surgery including disc replacement.
Dr Greg Finch studied at the university of Auckland where he obtained a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). After practicing for some time, Dr Greg Finch gained a FRACS (Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons). He then spent two years working with world leaders in the USA, UK and Germany. He found that he had a particular interest in minimally invasive spine surgery.
Spine surgery is usually performed as an open surgery traditionally. This involves opening the operative site with a long incision so the surgeon can view and access the anatomy of the spine. Dr Greg Finch however was interested in the advanced technology where more spine conditions can be treated with minimally invasive techniques. Minimally invasive spine surgery does not involve long incisions therefore open manipulation of the muscle the tissues that surround the spine are avoided. This leads to shorter operative time and reduces interoperative manipulation of soft tissues, resulting in less postoperative pain and a quick recovery.
