Roy Chaudhary was a brilliant consultant as he kept myself and my partner informed at all times as to what was happening pre and post op. He also was very considerate about our family commitments and catered the procedures around us. All in all he was a fantastic kind and considerate consultant.
I was weeding and fell over. I was left with a very painful back and left leg. I had an MRI scan and this showed had compression on L4/L5. My doctor treated me pain relief and a visit to a physiotherapist. She examined me and said she was unable to help me, sending me back to my doctor advising my doctor I should see a neurosurgeon. My doctor arranged for me to see Mr Chaudhary at Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. He explained what he could do for me with keyhole surgery and the risks involved, he gave me confidence in him and his team. I had my surgery in February 2017. "The relief !" as up until I had the operation I was in constant pain and walked like a question mark. Mr Chaudhary is an outstanding consultant and surgeon I have no hesitation in recommending him and this team. I am very grateful for what he and his team has done for me. Thank you Chris Holloway
My back problems had become worse over the last year, and after having an MRI scan, I was referred to Mr Chaudhary. After seeing several different doctors, physios, chiropractors, it was a such a relief to be seen by someone who could pinpoint my problem and was able to fix it, AND with keyhole surgery. I had to wait for 3 months on the NHS waiting list, in increasing pain, but I had faith that Mr Chaudrey would operate on my back and sort the problem out. I had decompression surgery, and was lucky enough to be called in a month ahead of my scheduled date of June 22nd this year, and was seen in the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in May 2017. I can't thank him and his team enough as I now can resume a normal life and get back to my pleasures of walking and gardening. I just am so thankful that I was referred to such an understanding and specialist doctor, who listened to me, never rushing me, and thoroughly explaining everything that he was going to do. Although it seemed a long wait, it is amazing how quickly I have returned to my normal life and almost forgotten the pain that had built up over the last year and meant I could do less and less, and even had to cancel 2 holidays. I was only in for 1 night, so it must save the NHS a great deal of money to perform these pioneering operations , doing keyhole surgery as a day case. I will be forever grateful to Mr Chaudhary.

Mr B Roy Chaudhary was my doctor during my fractured neck operation. He made me feel comfortable, and he also made me feel relaxed before and after my operation. Before my operation he met me before to go through what was going to happen, and comforted me, and this really helped because it calmed my nerves, and I knew that he would do a excellent job.
I have seen Mr B Roy Chaudhary twice with regard to clinical/spinal problems. On both occasions my husband and I were extremely impressed by the respect and courtesy he showed me and by his obvious expertise in his specialty. His explanations were clear and helpful. He has an excellent manner and a listening ear. On each of the two occasions mentioned above, he provided a full and detailed report for both my GP and I. I am due to be seeing him again in October 2017 and know that I will receive the best advice regarding my condition. Thank you. Christina Hughes
