Mr George Spink
26th August 2020
I met Mr Spink after previously having seen two other Neurosurgeons. I had been left feeling very unsure and not confident in the other consultants, my experience with Mr Spink was totally different. I found him very easy to talk to and more importantly he actually listened, this is hugely important when you are making such serious decisions. I had been given two different opinions of what surgery I needed, Mr Spinks was different again but I felt confident with his diagnosis and what he suggested was my best option, ACDF surgery. I was told that the surgery might not be successful as I had suffered from a compressed nerve in my spine for a long time. I was also advised that unfortunately the surgery would not help with my chronic neck pain. I had my surgery at H.R.I in Feb 2020. The care by the staff at this hospital was the best I have ever experienced, unfortunately for me I have been in a number of hospitals. My surgery was successful, unfortunately my arm problems have not gone as the nerve had been compressed for so long. Having seen Mr Spink recently I was given reassurance that given time my arm problem could still improve. My neck pain is greatly improved. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Spink or to see him myself again if the need arises.
