Professional Biography

Mr Khai Lam is an internationally recognised consultant orthopaedic spinal surgeon with over 25 years experience. He is a leading expert in the treatment of spinal disorders. {{ label }}

He has been a pioneer in the development of innovative spinal surgical procedures, including minimally invasive spine surgery, robotic spine surgery, artificial or total disc replacement surgery (ADR or TDR), sacro-iliac joint (SIJ) fusion surgery and scoliosis surgery.

His broad range of conservative and surgical spinal services are available to help treat both adult and paediatric patients. He helped establish the internationally renowned spinal surgery unit at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital and was the founder and director of the AOSpine Reference Centre at London Bridge Hospital.

He is proficient in minimally invasive spine surgery to treat all forms of degenerative spine disorders, scoliosis and deformities in adults and children. In fact, since 2004 he has performed thousands of these complex spinal procedures.

His specific areas of expertise include: minimally invasive spinal surgery and spinal fusion surgery, computer navigated spine surgery and robotic spine surgery, cervical and lumbar artificial disc replacement (ADR) or total disc replacement (TDR) , and minimally invasive ALIF, LLIF, OLIF and XLIF spine surgeries.

He is currently the Europe and Middle East (EMEA) Director of the Society of Lateral Access Surgery (SOLAS), which helps promote and teach ALIF, LLIF, OLIF and XLIF surgeries.

Mr Lam became the first UK surgeon to be trained on the ExcelsiusGPS Robotic Spine Navigation System and is leading the UK launch of this revolutionary spine system in London. He has since performed numerous of these robotic landmark spine surgeries.

These landmark cases includes the first UK single position lateral (SPL) XLIF, and first European minimally invasive robotic scoliosis spine surgery, single position ALIF (SPAL) spine surgery, and  postero-medial SIJ fusion.

He is recognised for providing high-level professional patient care and state-of-the-art surgical treatment of the utmost quality, as well as his knowledge and research.

Mr Lam is in high demand to lecture internationally, his work is published in many scientific papers, and he frequently presents his clinical research at national and international spine societies.

He is also a reviewer for European Spine Journal, International Journal of Spine Surgery and Spine.
