“Less than a month ago I was suffering from debilitating Spinal Stenosis diagnosed by Mr Chatterjee. In consultations with him he explained everything, talking me through the MRI images, and the possible ways ahead. At no point did he pressurise me in any way. So it was my decision to go for a spinal decompression operation on 5.1.22. Words cannot express my gratitude to Mr Chatterjee for his care and quite remarkable surgical skills. I marvel at the way in which he has dealt with the stenosis that was inside me and how he has given me a wonderful new lease of life. I can only say to anyone looking for a Spinal Surgeon that I cannot see how you can possibly do any better than to get in touch with Mr Bob Chatterjee.“

    About

    Mr Subhamoy Chatterjee is a Consultant spinal surgeon who practices in both Central London and the North London areas. Affectionately know as 'Bob' to his colleagues, he trained at Guy's & St Thomas' Hospital. He undertook his initial surgical training in Oxford and finally on the Middlesex rotation in London. He went on to gain and complete a Royal College of Surgeons Fellowship at Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals as well as Neurosurgical Spinal Fellowship at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge. This dual training allowed him to develop and hone the latest techniques in spinal surgery.

    He has always held a high regard for the importance of research and in 2003 achieved a distinction in his Master’s Degree at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, where he researched Biomechanics and Skeletal Tissue Degeneration. He maintains this within his current practice sitting on research committees and holds honorary research contracts at the Royal National Orthoapedic Hospital & Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals. 

    Mr Chatterjee is very committed to education and his research is widely published and presented. He lectures and teaches internationally and is a tutor in minimally invasive keyhole surgery. He is the author of numerous book chapters, articles and research papers, as well as the Consultant editor of several medical journals. Mr Chatterjee resides on several medical committees and is a spinal advisor to the NHS. 

    Throughout his practice he strongly believes in ensuring that his patients understand their conditions to help make an informed decision about their health. 

    His wife Lisa is also a trained Orthopaedic surgeon. Bob has varied interests outside of his practice, from fine food and wine to table tennis, but now it his two young daughters with whom he likes to spend his free time.

    I have always found Mr Chatterjee to have an excellent friendly and relaxing manner He has always taken time to be extremely detailed in describing the procedure, without being too technical and has instilled great confidence in me that I am in good hands. I have also never felt rushed when discussing any issues with him. So far, post op I am feeling better than expected!

    I visited Dr. Chatterjee twice in 2021 for some neck issues I had. He did a great job explaining to me the root of my issues and take me through the options I had and pros and cons of the options. He was also very responsive and timely in answering any follow up questions I had through email. I decided not to go for the surgery option as my pain was minimal and occasional.
