    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.

    Mr Chatterjee operated on my mother, so I cannot comment on the actual surgery, however he called me personally after my mother's spinal surgery to update me on how it had gone and prognosis for recovery. He took time to explain the situation to me in detail to ensure I had fully understood what had been done and what her recovery would entail, which was extremely generous of him. Mr Chatterjee went above and beyond expectations and has been a great source of reassurance for the family throughout.

    Mr Chatterjee was extremely nice, very patient and spent a lot of time showing us exactly what was going on with my spine. When I went into hospital for injections he was very reassuring. At the follow up appointment he once again took the time to explain why the injections hadn't worked, what my options were going forward and gave us the time and space to decide for ourselves what to do next.

    Bob Chaterjee is an excellent specialist. I have not had surgery but my Hausband and Daughter both have and the results have been excellent. I went to see him to see if he could help me but I did not want an operation and he helped me as much as he could. If any one has problems with their back heis theperson to see.

    I only met Mr Chatterjee recently. He's professional, personable, compassionate and caring. He's the first consultant, over many years of chronic back pain, who has taken the time to explain both my past and present scans, and to discuss realistic treatment options. He has a holistic approach to medicine and is keen to discuss both surgical and non-surgical possibilities.
