“I found Mr Bullock incredibly reassuring, explaining everything in detail with a very clear treatment plan. My surgery went very well and the care was exceptional. Mr Bullock visited me daily whilst I was recovering on the Hospital ward & I kept me well informed at all times of my progress. I can’t thank Mr Bullock enough, as well as his team and the staff that looked after me so well.“

Following his innovative work and research, Mr Bullock was appointed a Consultant Neurosurgeon at King’s College Hospital before travelling to North America to visit leading centres such as Toronto and Chicago.

He specialises in both intracranial and spinal surgical operations such as intradural tumours, lumbar disc prolapse and lumbar canal stenosis.

    Slow growing pineal tumour. Pineal Tumours
    My wife underwent major surgery with Mr Bullock to remove a rare pineal tumour that was slowly growing. We researched extensively (including other countries) to identify a top consultant neurosurgeon who specialises in pineal tumours. We are so happy to have found Mr Bullock. His specialist experience in pineal tumours and effusive peer recommendation (from other top neurosurgeons) were the principal reasons for initially consulting him. From our first call, we felt relieved and comfortable, albeit anxious at the prospect of such intricate surgery and consequent potential risks. We will forever be grateful for Mr Bullock’s meticulous expertise and perseverance to fully excise the tumour without any collateral damage. The end-to-end experience under was of the utmost professionalism. His support team are also superb. The warm, personal attention and kind approach provided by Dr George Donaldson throughout Mimi’s admission period was extremely welcome and made such a difference. The ICU team and all staff on the Ward were also highly professional, attentive and very much appreciated. Within days, my wife’s recovery was well underway, thankfully free of any neurological symptoms, progressing slowly but surely toward a return to full normalcy. We will always be eternally grateful to Mr Bullock, who we have no hesitation in highly recommending.

    Mr Bullock was exceptional. From dealing with me (and my family) once the condition was diagnosed, through to on-going explanation of the condition pre-operation, to the operation and bedside manner and dealing with my family and then all follow ups.
