“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.“

I had excrutiating pain for a long time, from my hip going down my leg on the left hand side of my body. I was unable to sit or walk for any length of time. I put off seeing anyone as I was very frightened of surgery. As soon as I met Mr Chatterjee, he was very open and put me at ease straight away. I was sent for an MRI, which showed the problem. He then patiently spent a long time expaining in great detail what showed up on the scan, and answering my questions and concerns. He suggested having an injection in the first instance for the pain, but although this helped a little bit it didn't work for me. After going through all the pros and cons with Mr Chatterjee, I decided to go ahead and have surgery three and a half weeks ago. I am absolutely delighted with the results, my pain has gone, and I can sit and walk again. I really wish I would have done it sooner!

Mr Chattterjee was a credit to himself and the profession he works in. My overall understanding of my condition was quite limited until Mr Chatterjee explained everything in full. He made me totally aware of any risks involved in surgery and was professional until the end. I would highly recommend Mr Chatterjee

Mr Chatterjee is every patient's ideal doctor, if you made an impossible wish list of an expert professional to deliver the very best of care then Mr Chatterjee would exceed such a list. This started with the first consultation where the patient is put first and a very detailed explanation of what the medical problem is and the treatment options made available. There was a thorough discussion on optimal treatments and the associated medical/surgical risks. The care I have received from Mr Chatterjee could not be improved! First class, exemplary care and a bedside manner to put anyone at ease! I am indebted to his skill and craftsmanship as Surgeon.

I have just met Dr Chatterjee online because I live abroad. We had an internet consultation which on a medical level I expected to be quite daunting. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The explanation of my issues and his entire aura of competence is quite honestly in my opinion outstandingly professional. I sincerely look forward to the next appointment, when I will be able to return to London for a visit face to face. I feel very hopeful that this very charming and highly skilled and capable gentleman can in fact help me to recover my mobility…and I have no hesitation in putting my trust in his capabilities. I know that with his help I have more of a fighting chance to recover my mobility and therefore a better life. Whatever the result, I know he will have done his best for me. That means a lot.

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.

I consulted with Mr Chatterjee many times over a period of three years. During this time he was always engaging and confident of his diagnosis of the various conditions that I was dealing with. I found this reassuring.. In particular he diagnosed a severe pain in my chest as Costochondritis, where this had not been identified by another and was able to offer treatment advice. A year ago when I suffered a spinal compression, he immediately made appropriate arrangements for me to have the best outcome possible. I am extremely grateful to him.
