“Mr. Aylott has an easy going yet very professional approach. His diagnosis and explanation of my problem was put in easily understood terms. He inspired confidence in his ability from our first meeting. It is only six weeks since he perfomed the decompression on my spine which has already greatly reduced the pain that I had suffered for almost a year enabling me to resume something close to my former life. I cannot speak too highly of the treatment I received. I could not have been in better hands.“

    Lower Back Pain Herniated Disc or Slipped Disc
    After many months of lumbar pain at night, the excellent advice and diagnosis I received from Mr. Aylott culminated in steroid injections. These worked extremely well during the following month and then at about 60% effectiveness. I’m delighted with Mr. Aylotts’ approach and successful treatment during the pandemic. I am now able to sleep through the night with no medication.

    Thanks to Mr Aylott and the unique consultation service that he provides. He has diagnosed and recommended courses of treatment for my back problem in a friendly and highly efficient way though the one-stop clinic. This has taken weeks off a standard private consultation. This means my road to recovery is so much faster!

    I especially appreciated the facility of combining a scan with a subsequent consultation. The latter has been unhurried, allowing for full and sympathetic discussion of results and management. This is much appreciated and I would recommend him very highly.

    I first attended the one stop shop at Cheltenham Spine Clinc 6 years ago and have just returned for my third visit. At my initial visit Mr Aylott was able to fully explain my spinal issues and took time to explore with me the probable long term progression of this and the treatment/preventative options available to me. This was followed up by an indepth written report of the consultation, likely prognosis, preventative measures and treatment options. Before seeing Mr Aylott I had been told that surgery would be essential for my scoliosis and was scared and anxious regarding my future. With the information gleaned from my visit I have been able to confidently self manage my physical issues, minimise their impact on my life and agree changes to my working environment to support me. I return to the clinic for reassurance and advice when there are any changes in my symptomology and Mr Aylott has always given me the confidence to continue self management strategies.

    I had an exceptionally positive 'pain management experience' at this clinic yesterday and am extremely glad I took the advice of my physio and made the appointment to see Mr Aylott. Have suffered for 35 years. Am now looking forward to a reduction in pain and an improved physical and mental approach to my 'minor disabilities'. Highly recommend this consultant.

    It was without doubt the best decision I ever made to see Mr Aylott regarding my 10 week severe back problem. If only I had made that decision at the start of my problem then the suffering would have ended 10 weeks earlier. From the initial appointment at 12.40pm on Monday the 10th August 2020 until the final meeting at 3.50pm same day every part of the procedure was without doubt 10 out of 10. To have a clear and concise diagnosis in this excellent one stop consultation was a breath of fresh air. If you have a back problem the only man to see is Mr Aylott.

    From the outset I was put at my ease with a welcoming smile and use of my preferred name. This made me feel I was not “just another patient”. The medical explanation of the scan results was excellent and Mr Aylott took time to answer any of my questions. I left the clinic feeling very positive having started the day In a somewhat desperate frame of mind. The plan for the future was discussed together and gave me real hope. My sincere thanks to all the staff for the care of me on that day.

His overview of my condition was very thorough. Following my scan and X-ray he explained in detail my problem and gave my a comprehensive series of options available to me. I left my meeting with a positive attitude to my condition. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
