There is no doubt that Bob is an extremely skilled surgeon, you only have to look at his CV to confirm. Of equal importance is the fact that he is also a very, very, nice man and works his fingers to the bone for his patients. He fitted me in for surgery on my lower back at very short notice, just before the coronavirus pandemic hit, and I will always be extremely grateful to him for this. He is completely the opposite of the image we have of surgeons as being rather brusque and stand offish. He is charming and very generous with his time and will make sure that you are clear on what he is communicating to you. I cannot recommend him highly enough and I am really thankful that I was lucky enough to fall under his care. 


FR – April 2020



I have developed a specialist practice focusing on the traumatic and degenerative aspects of spinal surgery. I offer treatment for a whole variety of spinal problems. In cervical (neck) and lumbar (lower back) regions, I treat simple and complex spinal problems with a variety of techniques including microdiscectomy, decompression of the spine, spinal fusion and disc replacements.


I also offer the very latest techniques in spinal surgery including minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery, vertebroplasty, and non fusion technology for back pain in order to treat your condition with the least damage to your own tissues. Complimenting my surgical procedures, I offer a wide variety of injection techniques for the treatment of spinal pain.

The philosophy of my treatments are twofold.  I always try to help my patients without surgery where possible. If surgery is required, I use minimally invasive (keyhole) techniques to allow quicker recovery and lessen the discomfort.
