Mr Greg Rudol

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.
