I'm in awe of Doctor Barrie White and all the staff at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham. If you don't know Queens it is a huge hospital complex near Notttingham University. It is five years since (2012) I had an urgent operation to remove an intradural meningioma (benign tumour) from T2 on my spine. I had excellent care and Doctor White was amazing. What is the follow up like at Queens? Excellent and I have had annual MRI scans since July 2012. I had a very, very unexpected panic attack in the MRI scanner in 2017 but have received a letter from Doctor White with alternative solutions so I feel confidant I can do the (hopefull) final MRI scan in due course. How is my health now? Excellent thanks to my care at Queens. The NHS is wonderful. Dorothy Parker
I was a patient in September 2015 I had a Sah the care I received by Mr White and his team were brilliant can't thank him enough
I was referred to Mr Barrie White as an NHS patient by a consultant orthopaedic surgeon Mr David Bromage at Kettering General Hospital, because of worsening back and leg pains caused by degeneration of my lumber spine, and complicated by the presence of an intraspinal benign tumour (lipoma) pressing on my spinal cord , which Mr Bromage said he wasn't able to operate on himself. Mr White spent almost an hour with me and my wife. He examined me, looked at the scan in great detail from several different angles and explained exactly what the situation was, and also what problems there could be if and when he operated on me. More importantly he told both of us what complications and possible outcomes there. might be. I have no doubt whatsoever that I am now in the best possible hands. Eric C
My husband had a cervical spinal operation to remove 12 tumours from his c1/c2/c3 and C4. My husband has been under Mr Barrie White for many years. It was time for my husband to have his operation as he was loosing some body functions. Under his care the operation took nine hours and it was a life threatening operation, which he could of been paralysed from the neck down or died. Mr White told us at the time he has only done 10 of these operations like mine because my condition is rare. From the start to the finish Mr White and his team were excellent and caring beyond duty. Anytime my husband needs to see Mr White he is happy to do this. From the start to the finish he kept me and my children informed. I would trust him with mine and my children's life.

2013 I was diagnosed with a benign tumour on my spine, at the time I wasn't in too much pain, roll on 4 years I was falling over legs & side burning in pain all of the time. Mr White did another MRI and phoned with the results saying the tumor had grown and was pressing on my spinal cord, the following week I went to pre op & was told the date & risks of my operation. If I didn't have the operation I would be paralysed from the chest down I had the operation on a Wednesday & can walk! I cannot thank Mr white enough, he is a amazing surgeon. I would like to say thank you to Laurie for your support you really helped me, Lizzie in recovery & all the staff in pre op & D10. Hopefully I will be going home on Monday to recovery at home.
