Bedside Manner
After years of low back spasms both my ability and willingness to endure the pain ran out. I went to see Dr Mo Akmal who told me I had a nasty problem with a relatively simple solution. It was 10 weeks ago to the day I had the surgery to deal with 2 bulging discs, one of which was pushing significantly into the nerve. I feel physically and mentally transformed and I'm still within what would be considered the recovery period. Everyone I've dealt with at the London Spine Unit - be it on the phone or in person - have been good natured and good humoured and as a result I have absolutely no reservation in recommending them as professionals and all round good people.

I work closely with Mr Akmal and he has always been an approachable and conscientious surgeon. He takes a genuine interest in his patients and I have always heard patients singing his praises, particularly for the relief of back pain after his innovative and skilled spinal injections. He always seems to make time for both colleagues and patients.
