I have a long history of lower back pain, with a previous discectomy 6 years ago, my disc had deteriorated further and I needed urgent follow on treatment. The initial recommendation was to have some nerve block injections, which were carried out very quickly and provided instant relief of the sciatic leg pains. This gave Mr Aftab and his team time to fully evaluate the best approach for a long lasting resolution. Given my previous history, spine fusion was recommended, (ALIF). This was discussed with me at great length with risks explained very clearly, I also saw another member of the team who would be assisting with the surgery who also explained all possible risks and complications. Once I decided this was the best chance of reducing pain and increasing my mobility the operation was scheduled for late February. The day of the operation my wife accompanied me to the hospital, we saw Mr Aftab in the morning, he again explained the procedure and risks. ALIF is a major procedure, I would require a night in ICU, Mr Aftab offered to call my wife as soon as the surgery was finished, which was such a nice touch. The surgery went to plan, now 6 weeks after the procedure I am no longer taking pain medication, the pain is much reduced and each week I continue to improve. I am very grateful to Mr Aftab and his team for the excellent care I was given throughout the whole process.

He’s brilliant. He did back surgery on my spine six years ago. His demeanour, his positive explanation of the situation and the way it was conveyed made me confident I was in good, safe hands. Bedside manner very reassuring, and any questions were answered clearly and, I believe, honestly. Recommending a surgeon can be fraught with difficulties, as it’s so subjective, but for what it’s worth, I highly recommend Bob Chatterjee to anyone.
