Mr James Bourne

I am a consultant trauma & orthopaedic and spinal surgeon. I practice in Lancashire, where I live with my family. I qualified as a doctor in 2001 from Birmingham University Medical School, and after completing basic surgical training, I worked in Dunedin, New Zealand for over 2 years as a trauma & orthopaedic registrar. I returned to the UK, and trained on the North West higher surgical training scheme. I spent a year at Salford Royal Hospital spinal unit as the senior trainee, and then a further year as the senior trainee in spinal surgery at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. I commenced as a consultant in 2017.

Specialises in:

  • Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery

Showed caring compassion. He made me have a life when I nearly lost my life. Fixed my broken neck now I can get on with my life. Rang my wife on the day of surgery and explained everything and reassured my family.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Your comments are very kind. Working in a major trauma centre, is very rewarding. There is a big team effort, starting with the North West Ambulance service, followed by the Emergency Department and Major trauma team, Intensive care team, theatre teams, ward staff, laboratory teams and admin teams. Every single person's role in that is important, I am glad all the cogs of the machine worked, and you are now on the mend.

Mr Bourne did his utmost to make sure my sons surgery went ahead after a wait of 106 weeks whilst under the care of a different surgeon. The surgery was a huge success and has changed my sons life, he is now pain free and looking forward to the future. I would recommend Mr Bourne and his team without reservation as he is very professional, polite and a thoroughly nice man.

Put me really at ease for a fairly serious neck operation. Carried it out successfully. Was very attentive in hospital and at follow-up consultations.

Thanks for your feedback. There are a lot of risks with spinal surgery, and I'm glad I was able to put the risks in perspective with the benefits, and that you have had a good result.
