Darren Lui

Mr Darren F. Lui is fellowship trained in complex spinal surgery and works in London, UK. He deals with simple spinal problems such as back and leg pain (sciatica) as well as neck and arm pain (brachalgia/radiculopathy). He also deals with the entire breadth of complex spinal problems including deformity, trauma and cancer.


He trained on 3 International Spinal Fellowships: Adelaide and Meath Hospital, Dublin Ireland; Duchess of Kent Children’s Hospital and Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong; Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, London.


He has expertise to approach the spine in 360 degrees from anterior, lateral, oblique and posteriorly. This allows MIS techniques (Navigation and Robotics) to be optimally used to plan bespoke surgery to the patient’s sagittal & coronal parameters.


He specializes in adolescent & paediatric deformity surgery such as scoliosis and kyphosis/Scheuremann’s Disease.


He is an expert in surgical and non-surgical management. He works closely with specialist dealing with conservative management such as Schroth, SEAS and SSPE techniques. He also utilizes bracing where possible in the growing child.


He has a special interest in adult scoliosis, failed back syndrome and revision spinal surgery. One of his sub speciality interests are patients who have had previous surgery who may require very complex revisions. These are the most challenging cases, requiring extensive diagnostic testing, and often multiple revision surgeries but more importantly understanding when nothing further should be done. He works closely with his allied healthcare team to provide the correct rehabilitation.


He has a keen interest in spinal oncology and offers the very most up to date techniques in spinal cancer oligometastatic surgery.


As a surgeon at a Level 1 Trauma Centre he has expertise in severe polytrauma, including spinal fractures, as well as spinal cord injury. He uses the latest technology including spinal navigation for MIS percutaneous surgery as well as Mechanical Kyphoplasty. 


His adult practice also incorporates those with back pain or neck pain which can be associated with radicular arm or leg pain. Many of these cases are amenable to minimally invasive or microscopic spinal surgery.


He is very interested in Medical Research and Teaching. He has a large research team at St. George’s Hospital and is an Honorary Senior Lecturer. He has a Masters Degree in Surgery and supervised 4 other Masters Degrees in Science and Surgery. He has 40 Peer Reviewed Publications, authored 167 podium publications and authored 46 posters. Teaching and research allow constant learning.
