Image Guided Surgery

Keyhole Approach.

Minimally invasive procedures represent a logical evolution of surgical philosophy focussing on patient’s safety and satisfaction. This philosophy is based on three main principles:
– accurate identification of the problem;
– safe access to the pathological area with minimal injury to the surrounding tissues;
– effective but delicate repair of the problematic even deep-lying structures.

Robotic Surgery

Intelligent and Accurate.

Robotic surgery allows accurate planning of the procedure before the patient enters operating theatre and  causes less operative trauma and blood loss, resulting in reduced post-operative pain and scarring. It helps achieving:
– Faster recovery from surgery and less rehabilitation required;
– Reduced chances of post-surgical complications, e.g. infection and deep venous thrombosis;
– Patients are able to return to work and usual activities sooner;<br /> – It can often be performed in difficult clinical scenarios when open surgery is deemed too risky, e.g. in elderly, obese or medically unfit patients;
– Better cosmetic results from smaller skin incisions;
– Diminished reliance on pain medications after surgery



After taking your history and performing examinations, your imaging will be reviewed and discussed with you. Understanding the problem is essential in finding the best possible solution and good quality radiological investigations play an important role in visualising any structural changes and abnormalities.Very often, additional and more detailed radiological investigations will be required. These may include:
– MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) including weight-bearing scans and MR angiography,
– CT (computed tomography),
– SPECT (single-photon emission computed tomography),
– flexion/extension, lateral bending and other specific types of X-Rays,
– EOS imaging (low dose 3D imaging in natural standing position),
– DEXA bone mineral density measurements,
– ultrasound and other studies.
For certain neurological conditions, you may be referred to neurophysiological investigations, including nerve conduction studies, EMG (electromyogram), SSEP (somato-sensory evoked potentials) and MEP (motor evoked potentials).


Treatment Decisions

Once the cause of your problem is identified, we will discuss suitable management options. In most situations, there is more than one option available and surgery will be only the last resort when every other form of conservative treatment fails to improve your condition. In order to help you make the right decision, we will discuss pros and cons of all possible modalities and explain expected outcomes during consultation. You will be provided with detailed information materials relevant to your condition to take home and discuss with your family. A report to your General Practitioner will be dictated at the end of appointment and a copy will be sent to you as well.
Our primary goal would be to avoid operation, and this approach is proven as the safest and most effective in many scenarios. However, there are situations when surgery is the final and necessary step to improve patient’s condition and quality of life. When it comes to surgery, it is naturally not always easy to make this important decision. Understanding the problem and range of available alternatives is very helpful.

    Excellent result. During my first consultation with Mr Aliashkevich I was impressed by his candour when explaining the options … More I had to relieve the considerable discomfort I was experience due to disc and other degeneration of my spine. His obvious knowledge and expertise gave me confidence when making the decision to proceed with the somewhat complicated surgery. Strong stuff for an 81 year old. Thanks to a truly great outcome I have rediscovered the joy of daily walking and now am able to stand straight and tall. The support of his staff and his own gentle presence contributed greatly to my current well being. Many thanks.

    Dr Ales, an amazing surgeon, extremely compassionate and caring with his patients. From my 1st consultation I had a clear … More understanding of what was causing my issues, his explanation was clear and simple. He made himself available when I needed him in emergency and did everything he said he would. Every time he advised he would be there, he was, without leaving me waiting, very caring, approachable and dedicated to make our lives (his patients) get back to being its fullest. His office staff, Mel, is also to be commended with her caring attitude and ease of dealing. Thank you for getting me back to life as normal.

    Dr Ales, an amazing surgeon!
    After being told the incorrect information from another surgeon I was referred to Dr Ales.
    … More When I first contacted Dr Ales rooms both Mel and Christine were very compassionate, understanding, and reassured me I was in best hands with Dr Ales and went above and beyond to schedule me an urgent appointment.
    From my 1st consultation I had a clear understanding of what I had and what would be involved with the surgery. Dr Ales answered all my questions thoroughly. The office ladies Mel and Christine have such a caring attitude and assisted me through out the whole process and always ensured I was recovering well after my surgery. Thank you Dr Ales, Christine & Mel ! Highly recommended
