I saw Mr Casey in June 2017. Although he was polite and pleasant, he allowed his registrar to examine me who was suspicious of my symptoms and indeed who kept saying, "This doesn't add up." This referred to my extremely weak hand with which I had little function. Fast forward 18 months and I had surgery for neurogenic and vascular thoracic outlet syndrome. It was extremely upsetting being treated in this way. I did mention that I had suspicions that I had vascular thoracic outlet but Mr Casey said he knew nothing about it. With all due respect, I think that a senior spinal surgeon really should know something about this syndrome as many patients are seen who have extreme neck pain and upper body dysfunction - in this way they will often end up seeing a spinal surgeon. Please update your clinical knowledge Mr Casey and do not let your patients be undermined by registrars ( we have all paid our N.I. contributions and do not deserve this.)
I have recently undergone my third surgery under the care of Mr Casey and his team and I cannot fault him or his team for their exceptional surgical expertise. Mr Casey is an incredible surgeon and doctor and he is one in a million. I only wish I had seen him sooner. He is very caring, puts his patients first and explains everything in detail and you feel you are in extremely safe hands and can be reassured by his excellent surgical skills and a sound neurosurgical opinion.
Mr Casey has been my consultant for 9 years, I have several complex back and neck issues. He has a direct approach, he is friendly and I feel safe and trust that he will do his best for me.
I searched the internet to find the best surgeon for my mothers very rare condition. Thank goodness I found Mr Casey. He is an exceptional surgeon and also has a wonderful bedside manner in explaining everything to the patient and family. Mr Casey makes you feel in control of your care and condition, but you feel so safe in his talented hands. I am thankful everyday that we found Mr Casey and could not recommend him more as a talented surgeon.
I have been a patient since 2015 and all I can say is Mr Casey is an exceptional surgeon. Above all he is thorough, kind, and really cares about his patients. He is direct and straight to the point. I trust him implicitly and would recommend him to anyone who requires an outstanding neurosurgical opinion for issues relating to the cervical spine and lumbar spine especially complex issues.
