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.

Bob has operated on me today, administering an injection to treat a prolapsed disc. I met him last week initially so he could examine me and an MRI was conducted. I then returned to the hospital for the procedure. Bob has been sympathetic to my situation and very clear in his explanations of both the problem and the treatment. He also instilled in me a great deal of confidence that I was in safe hands and that he could treat my condition. As I write this, I am back at home, feeling a great deal better than I could possibly imagine that when I met him just 5 days ago. I have no hesitation in recommending Bob very highly.

I had suffered with sciatica down my left side for several years, including cramp, pins and needles and shin/foot pain. I really wasn't keen on undergoing surgery and Mr. Sadek agreed to support me with alternative treatments which may have removed the need for surgery. He prescribed me a course of strong pain killers, which had little effect, followed by a course of physiotherapy, which also had little impact. He fully explained the surgical procedure to me on more than one occasion and the possible associated risks. I had the operation confident that this was the only possible solution to this life impacting condition. Surgery went well and the sciatica and associated pain have now been removed.
