“Mr. Lam has operated on both of my twin daughters for idiopathic Scoliosis, twice as Lily needed additional surgery for a Distal Add on. We would not have trusted anyone else to carry out the procedure. Mr Lam is incredibly informative and gives you all the information you need to decide on the next step. Mr. Lam put us all as a family at ease, he was conscientious and thoughtful on how the surgery would impact, not just the patient, but the entire family. It was incredibly reassuring to know he understood the enormous decision we were making and never pushed for us to decide one way or another. Mr. Lam consulted with his expert peers before suggesting any course of action for our daughters giving us the confidence that we were making the best-informed choices that we could. Post-surgery Mr. Lam or his anesthetist Mr. Sherry called straight away to let us know all was well (the wait during surgery is brutal) and they were both at the bedside as soon as they could be with post op expectations and advise. Mr. Lam has an incredible team around him and in both hospitals, where we were admitted, he is extremely well regarded by all ward, clinical and surgical professionals. We would recommend Mr. Lam completely. “

Mr Lam was very understanding of the issues I was experiencing with my back. He came up with a plan which resulted in me regaining height, balance and the ability to walk distances which was fantastic. He was very clear and thorough with his explanations of the procedure and what it entailed and with the follow up post operation. I feel very fortunate that I found Mr Lam and would not hesitate to recommend his impressive skills.

I was initially recommended Mr Lam from a colleague who had complicated spinal surgery so at my initial consultation I was already full with confidence in his ability. Taking the decision to have my required surgery was an easy choice and a choice of my own. From suffering from horrendous nerve pain for months I had part of my disc removed in my lower back that was sitting on my sciatic nerve, I walked out of the hospital the same day! Mr Lam carried out the surgery via keyhole which has left me with an extremely neat incision scar of 1-2 cm which I am confident will completely fade in time. My recovery was marvelous, being back on my feet the same day and 100% recovered within the week! I am amazed and grateful how wonderful the procedure was, it completely changed my life, I was in agony, sleep deprived and run down before the surgery, I would highly recommend Mr Lam and speaking to other health care professionals he seems to be a very popular and highly rated surgeon indeed. Thank you again Mr Lam.

Meticulous in his diagnosis and very detailed in explaining the condition and the options available. All very reassuring and what you would want as parents when deciding whether to put your child through surgery. He has a calm nature and was always reassuring pre and post surgery. Our daughter is extremely happy with the improvement in her posture post Scoliosis surgery. This has made a huge difference to her overall well-being. I would certainly recommend Mr. Lam.

We first met Mr Khai Lam during our daughter’s consultation for her scoliosis condition. His unassuming, friendly but professional approach quickly won our trust and we were keen for him to undertake this significant surgery. Preparation for the operation and the surgery itself ran very smoothly. Mr Lam was great in allaying our concerns on the day. We were especially pleased with the speed of our daughter’s recovery as she was back at home after just a few nights in hospital and was walking several kilometres shortly afterwards. We continued to see Mr Lam for several follow-up visits, all of which confirmed the excellent outcome of the operation. Mr Lam is clearly an expert in his field and we have no reservations in recommending him.

I have had injections in both my lower back and neck from Mr Lam - he explaines everything to me beforehand in such a way that I was very confident in him. I would not now see anyone else for such matters - I am feeling much better - greater mobility and out of pain. Many thanks Stephen
