In February 2017 my 85 year old Father was in so much pain , this once keen fisherman and bowls player was struggling to walk , the back pain was causing him to stoop right over , even with the maximum dose of Tramadol and Pregablin We battled to see Doctors and Consultants , we were told " my fathers back was so bad they would not know were to start ".....In a few words his active life was over Then in August ... By chance, i mentioned this to a German friend who told me her mother was exactly the same , she had an operation and could stand straight within 24 hours and was walking , The operation was done in Aachen , not a big German city With a new sense of purpose I started my research , and found Ankur Saxena..... After an meeting which gave an honest open approach of the risks and rewards , saying he could improve my Father by 70 % but he would walk straight Late September he had the operation , and yes he can walk straight , all those awful tablets gone , apart from paracetamol... certainly a 70 % improvement Yes ...he can now play bowls , plus even fly fish ...This operation gave him his life back What can I say , Ankur Saxena you have made an old man and his son very happy , Thank you ... Please let this sort of operation be available on the NHS ...give more people the chance of a good life not in a wheelchair , which was the way my Father was going Lastly keep trying , never give up Kind regards Simon Williams

I attended Mr Saxeena on my sons recommendation to see if he could anything could be done about a problem I had with severe back pain. I had previously been told by a GP I attended that treatment was not available. Changing that GP I went through a series of Physio and various tablets before being put on the NHS waiting list for examination. After a wait of about 5 months I was told that I had a serious spinal problem. An operation was not recommended if I could manage with medication. Some weeks later the pain went suddenly worse. I was walking bent over to relieve it. I was prescribed Tramadol and Pregabalin to help with the pain. A further consultation suggested an injection which I had but which did not help. At this stage my son did some research and came up with Mr Artur Saxeena' s name and I decide to see him privately. As told earlier in the hospital review he said an operation could give me at least 70% relief. He carried out the op. a few weeks later with the results described above. I can recommend no highly, the way he dealt with the pre op discussion with me. I was fully confident the result would be as he promised.

I had been suffering from the symptoms of a Type 1 Chiari Malformation for approx. 5 years and met with Mr Saxena who suggested that a surgery would stop the problem from worsening and could potentially relieve some of the symptoms I was experiencing. Whilst the idea of Neurosurgery was daunting, I felt the risk/reward was worth undertaking and Mr Saxena explained at length the procedure, the risks and how I should manage my expectations. I had my surgery in April which so far has proved a massive success, I did contract viral meningitis shortly afterwards treated by my local hospital (Whiston), but Mr Saxena (Salford hospital) was in communication with myself and my Wife throughout - A real personal touch from an obviously busy man. All the symptoms I presented pre-op appear to have been relieved, the headaches, difficulty swallowing, the restless legs & arms - all gone. Both my wife & I are eternally grateful for the compassionate and thoroughly professional care we received under both Mr Saxena and Salford Royal. Thank You Barry
