Up to date I am very pleased with my treatment from Mr Shafafy, he has given me my life back after some very dark months, relying on countless painkillers, yet still being in unbearable pain. Many tanks to him and the hospital staff.

I am now ten years post surgery for a disc replacement in my neck and I am so glad I placed my trust in Me Shafafy. Despite being a fairly new procedure at the time the surgery was so successful that I have been pain free and with only minimal numbness in my index finger. I have nothing but praise for the skills and dedication of Mr Shafafy to enable me to continue leading a normal life.
