I had spinal surgery in October 2018 Mr Spink was brilliant right from the get go. He explained to me what was going to happen. What I needed done to my spine. What would happen after. I was terrified of having this op but without it I wouldn’t be walking now. I’m so grateful to Mr Spink for doing such a brilliant job on my spine. I owe everything to him for his excellent service and knowledge of what was going on and how to repair it. Thank you so much for making me feel so good a full year later and I’m able to walk freely. Pick the little children up. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Forever grateful
I have recently undergone spinal fusion surgery.Prior to the operation a full explanation was given as to the benefits and possible complications.Mr Spink and his team were excellent.Although I would have reservations about fully recommending Spire Hospital
I cannot praise Mr Spink highly enough in so few words! I was terrified of surgery and worried that my injury could not be fixed. He listened to me and explained very clearly what would happen in a gentle but matter of fact way. He has a very reassuring manner and made me feel like I was in safe hands. I am now 6 weeks post op, (ACDF surgery) and my main symptoms had gone by the time I came round from the anaesthetic & haven’t returned, pain is greatly reduced and manageable and I am preparing to return to work. 100% right decision for me to undergo surgery and so glad I had Mr Spink as my doctor. Would highly recommend.
Mr Spink is one of life’s special people he really cares he listens to what you’re saying discusses all your options explains what he can do to help pros and cons he never talks down to you he just explains so you understand he’s kind and very professional yet you can have a laugh with him I will always be very grateful for all he’s done for me 2 operations now I think of him as a friend someone you can really talk to a clever man who will sit beside you and give you a smile thank you George
A very professional man that you can talk to and he listens, good at his job and I could highly recommend him. Mr Spink came into the hospital on Sunday his day off to see how I was getting on, how many would do that. I am so grateful for getting my life back but still some way to go. I had microdisectomy on my lower back to relieve the sciatic nerve which was giving me unbelievable pain.
