Patient testimonial from Mr JB

I am pleased to report that following the surgery that you recently performed on my lower spine at Nuffield Health Tees Hospital, my sciatica pain has totally disappeared and, as you know, I was discharged the following day.

In fact, it became obvious immediately after the operation that it had been a 100% success in removing the source of my pain.

You had explained in detail that the procedure that you personally used, which was obviously extremely effective in my case and better than the 70% envisaged.

Thank you, your colleagues, and the staff at Nuffield for your care and attention on a job well done. I would recommend anybody with similar spinal problems to your expertise.

Patient testimonial from Mr GB

I referred myself to Nuffield Health Tees Hospital to see Mr Kalyan due to intense spasmodic pain in the lower back region. After an MRI scan, I was advised to undertake lumbar epidural steroid injections by Mr Kalyan.

After a short painless procedure, I found significant instant relief with a marked reduction in pain, a little soreness and slight twinges. This steadily improved to the point whereby, after a fortnight, apart from some early morning twinges and slight aching, I remained pain free. 

Now, after two months, I have the occasional early morning twinge but no pain and good movement throughout the day. I walk up to a mile most days and can remain standing in a stationary position for some time without experiencing any discomfort.

I would thoroughly recommend this treatment, where appropriate, for any person in a similar position to myself. I am now back to being an active 72-year-old male.

Patient testimonial from JM

Turn the clock back over 6 weeks ago and I was struggling to walk, at the point of us meeting for my first consultation. Having decided to opt for spinal surgery, I can honestly say it's one of the best decisions I have made and with such fantastic progress evident in my rehabilitation post operation.  I now begin the journey of working towards normality and enjoying quality time with my family - my recovery is well underway!

I would like to thank you Mr Kalyan for your expertise. I would also like to thank the team (nurses, physio and front of house) for being there when I needed them the most during such a difficult time. 

It's onwards and upwards as my recovery starts right here, as I take each step at a time remembering just how fortunate and lucky, I am to be in this position.
