    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.

    From Sept 2020. Bob really took time to explain everything to me and the entire process from diagnosis through to post surgery was exactly as he described including the recovery time and pain management. I couldn't have asked for more.

    Mr Chatterjee has taken the time to explain my condition, suggest various treatments and made arrangements for scans etc at my convenience. I have found him to be reassuring and I feel in very safe hands. I have a spinal operation coming up and I'm glad that Mr Chatterjee will be performing the surgery.
