Just a short note to say thank you very much for performing my Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery. You are a remarkable surgeon who has given me a new lease of life. The level of care I received during my four days at the clinic was outstanding and I cannot stress enough on how the team from you the surgeon to the nurses were dedicated 100% to their task and made this procedure a success. I would also like to thank all of the team including the anaesthetist, doctors and surgery nurses and a special mention to the nurses in the Intensive Care Unit Jenny, Jay and Lourdes to name a few who really looked after me. The device was activated on 21 December 2021. Immediately after the procedure even at a low setting I could feel the benefit and I continue to enjoy this incredible improvement in my quality of life. My sincere gratitude

Dear Mr Pereira, I can hardly believe that it is a week since I was lying on the operating table, head locked firmly in place, aware of the hand drill going though the skull, a moment of discomfort, then hands in the air. Counting backwards, speaking gibberish, trying to make sense, then the right hand not shaking and counting again. All good, aware of you and Mike Hart discussing the position of the lesion, good to go. Safe. Reassuring. Before I know it it's all over, I have no tremor on the right side of my body. and that is quite simply amazing. To have normality restored to that side has triggered many small improvements in mobility such as dressing, washing and generally doing things with the right hand. I had a pain in my right side every time I got up from a chair, It's gone. I guess it's going to take the body and the brain some time to adjust. I have a balance issue, not that I can't stand or walk but a general feeling of unsteadiness. My writing is barely legible, my speech is sometime mumbled and if I was being overly pessimistic I'd say that I've lost my sense of rhythm and it takes time to put my thoughts together. But all of this, I feel, will improve and none of it affects the sense of well being that I experience every day since the procedure. For that I have you and your team to thank. For your professionalism, training and confidence in what you are able to do. To you, Mr Pereira, Mike Hart, Consultant Neurosurgeon Dr Frantzais- Neurosurgery SpR, Anaesthetist Dr Tan, and specialist nurse Alison Leake you all have my sincere and grateful thanks. I look forward to seeing you in due course for the follow up post surgery debrief, and if you've got any video footage of the test phase of the procedure I'd love to see it. Yours aye,

I was fortunate to meet Mr Erlick Pereira when I had to undergo emergency surgery on my spine. I was found to be suffering with Cauda Equina Syndrome caused by a prolapsed disc. I was admitted through A&E and was brought in for surgery that following day. He solved the issues and I had follow ups with him under my private healthcare at the London Spine Clinic. As I had two prolapsed discs with many years unfortunately the second disc started to cause me severe pain with sciatica and lower back pain I had to undergo a second surgery two years after the first. I was again looked after by Mr Pereira at the LSC and again he did a fantastic job. He was informative and his work is seamless. My scar is tiny and so neat. I could not be more grateful to him and his team. I'm finally free of severe pain and absolutely sciatica free for the first time in years. Yes there are residual issues but time is a healer and I know for sure with the ongoing visits to LSC for Physio will get me 100%, along with dedication from myself to ensure I do the exercises set out for me.

Mr Pereira has a professional, relaxed ‘bedside manner’. He explained the procedure and all the associated risks very clearly. The surgical outcome has been a success and I am very grateful.

I am most grateful to Mr Pereira for the efficient and prompt treatment I received from himself and his team. As the onset of symptoms were very quick, there was some debate as to what my complaint was, but I am glad that my case was picked up by Mr Pereira and his rapid interception of my treatment I think produced what appears to be a successful outcome for which I am so grateful. This has been an eye-opening experience as I have been fortunate to enjoy good health up to this event and it also served as a good education of the NHS which gave such good support treatment during and after my Hospitalisation period and recovery at home..
