Dr John Albietz
Located on The Wesley Hospital Campus
Dr Albietz is a locally and internationally fellowship
trained spinal surgeon. After completing his Royal Australian College of
Surgeons fellowship in 2005 he travelled to Canada for further spinal surgical
training for eighteen months in Vancouver, British Columbia and then London,
Dr Albietz exclusively consults and operates on spinal
conditions affecting both adults and children. He operates on all spinal
conditions affecting the neck and lower back, from disc prolapses causing
sciatica to complex scoliosis or spinal tumour surgery.
As well as running a very busy private spinal surgery
practice, Dr Albietz holds a position on the Wesley Medical Advisory Committee.
He also works as part of the spinal injury unit at the Princess Alexandra
Hospital and is involved in research and teaching of spine fellows, registrars,
and medical students.
Dr Albietz provides an affordable and individualized
focus towards the management of spinal conditions throughout his experience and
knowledge of the latest surgical techniques. He also recognises the importance
of referral to and works closely with other medical and non-medical spinal
clinicians when non-surgical intervention is indicated.
