Had my Lumbar Fusion on the 11 March 2020, a very difficult time for the Hospital, but I had the best of care. I am glad I had the operation as I am pleased with the result as I am now out of pain and can move more easily. Mr Rudol explained the procedure beforehand all the advantages and disadvantages so I was prepared for all eventualities. I would like to thank the staff and Mr Rudol for giving me my life back

I had severe back pain and excruciating sciatic pain shooting down my leg which came on in early November 2020, my local GP prescribed various medication such as Tramadol, and Gabapentin, diagnosing me with a suspected slipped disc without a scan. Thankfully I was able to take advantage of our Private Medical Insurance and was over the moon to meet with Greg Rudol, who listened to my issues, and explained the possibilities and outcomes clearly, he arranged a scan and was able to carry out a phone consultation with my results in the week between Christmas and New Year which confirmed a prolapse disc and trapped nerve on the 1st sacrel, and was able to offer me a cortisone injection to help control the pain. I was extremely grateful for this suggestion as I was very limited with my mobility, unable to bend, stretch or lift items without being in absolute agony, and in addition I could not find a comfortable sleeping position so was barely sleeping. I am over the moon to report following my procedure, I no longer have sciatic pain, and I am no longer on any medication, I am sleeping normally pain free, and have now got back to walking daily. I feel like it was a miracle that has improved not only my physical pain, but my mental health too, I would not hesitate to contact Mr Greg Rudol again should any issue with my back arise again in the future, I would also recommend him to anyone with back issues.

I'd never had any type of surgery previously but knew that i could not carry on with the pain i was experiencing with my back having been given painkillers from my GP that were not helping. Following the consultation and scans Mr Rudol gave expert advice and explained the cause of my pain and the available treatments. I chose to have the surgery as i knew i was in good hands with Mr Rudol and he explained everything clearly and with a lot of knowledge. I'm now 6 weeks post surgery and feeling great. Mr Rudol's follow up appointments have been helpful and i'm really glad that i can now get back to work and leading a normal life.

Greg Rudol, what a legend ! From my first consultation he put me at ease and explain all the ins and outs of the procedure which he was going to perform. I had a spinal fusion on the 23rd of March 2020, when I came back from surgery I didn’t think the operation had been carried out I was in no pain for the first time in four years. I was able to stand and transfer from one bed to another straight away. The following morning we went for a walk down the corridor and up and down 2 flights of stairs it was amazing to be able to walk with no pain at all. I was discharged from the Spires hospital the same day. The follow up care has been first class. In my case I had little to no pain and only took pain relief tablets for about one week on a lesser dosage than prescribed. After 3 days I was able to walk 5km pain free and feeling great. My advise to anyone who is in need of this operation is to grab the opportunity with both hands and to quote the adage “Beyond fear is freedom” Today is the 1st of February 2021 and have had my last consultation with Greg, he has now confirmed that the operation has been a total success and my spine has fully fused I can not speak highly enough of the service I received from the Spires Hospital and Mr Greg Rudol in particular.

Mr Rudol undertook spinal surgery on my neck last year in December 2019. Before the surgery I had been in a lot of pain and discomfort. Mr Rudol explained all aspects of the ACDF surgery and put me at ease. One year on from my surgery and I am back to full health. The operation performed by Mr Rudol gave me back a good quality of life and I am once again able to be active. I enjoy walking and cycling something that had become increasingly more difficult before the operation. I cannot praise Mr Rudol enough. He is caring and compassionate and his down to earth approach put me at ease as naturally I had been anxious before my. Surgery.
