Life changing spine surgery

 Microdiscectomy

I first herniated a disc in January 2018 and was recommended to Mr Ibrahim by AXA. We tried to fix it with physio and injections.  However, in July 2018 I pulled my back again and herniated L4 & L5 vertebrae.  This time it was much worse.  I was in excruciating pain. I couldn’t walk, sit or stand comfortably or lift anything. I felt like an old man. I saw Mr Ibrahim and he advised that I have an operation asap.

The care I received from Mr Ibrahim was ‘top notch’ – absolutely perfect. Right from the start I felt I could trust him.  He told me everything I needed to know and made me feel I was in a safe pair of hands. I felt that he was really interested in me, and wanted to make sure I received the best possible treatment.  He was very caring and personable.  He even took the trouble to phone me a short time after the operation, when I had a bit of a scare and he reassured me that everything was ok.

The operation was a real success. I was walking the very next day.  Overall, I feel pretty fantastic. It will be 6 months before I’m fully recovered and I’ve got lots of rehab to do with my physio, but I’m feeling so much better and I’m seeing improvement all the time.

I would have no hesitation about recommending Mr Ibrahim to other patients
