We understand that having a back problem can be stressful & worrying as well as painful or debilitating. Florence & her team will strive to get you an appointment as soon as practical and, wherever possible, at a time that causes you least disruption. 


We are linked to many of the leading physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths & other allied professionals, and wherever possible we practice conservative or non-operative management for your condition.

We can be involved early on in your problem and would plan to give you an accurate diagnosis & explanation  and then co-ordinate your treatment plan with these other therapists. On the other hand, sometimes we are asked to review you if other treatments have failed and a further opinion is requested. Either way, we are committed to keeping interventions to a minimum and offering surgery only when really required.

As well as providing management of your problem from the outset, Mr Cass is also highly regarded for second opinions on complex problems. He receives requests for case reviews from all over the UK including London & also from abroad.

If you are abroad, it can sometimes be arranged to review your case, and give advice. For details, contact Florence by email info@sussexspinesolutions.co.uk
