Mr Jason Bernard is a Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon, he treats a wide range of spinal diseases and back injuries, ranging from the simplest disc problems to complex cancer and scoliosis surgeries. His emphasis is always on exploring the individual’s needs and goals to ensure that orthopaedic treatment plans are personalised.
I have just undergone a Cervical anterior discectomy, I have been in extreme pain for the past 3 months, not able to sleep or sit comfortably, I have been taken numerous pain killers but to no avail, thank god For Mr Bernard, what a wonderful extremely professional and thoughtful surgeon who I owe so much to as I have now had the first of hopefully many to come painless nights & days.
As I mentioned previously, I appreciated Mr Bernard's frank style in analysing the situation and then setting out what needed doing, the risks and the chances for success, both in the short term and long term recovery. No fudging, simple and straightforward that made decision making understandable and easy. Two and a bit weeks after the operation I'm exactly where I expected to be. In eight weeks time I will have an electric review of the nerve. So far, so good.
Mr Bernard was highly professional, easy to talk to and a good listener - and most importantly a fine surgeon. Many have admired the neatness and low visibility of my scar. His secretary Claire was very efficient and friendly and my stay and care in the Wimbledon Clinic was excellent. I would highly recommend Jason Bernard and his team.
At my first appointment, he was very patient to listen to my back history and answer all my questions. He did not present surgery as the first (and only) option. Once the decision was made that I would opt for discectomy, he was available to answer any further questions/concerns I had before the surgery via Clare. He came to visit me before theatre to reassure me and also after to check my progress. Although I was very drowsy, I had no nerve pain. I would recommend Mr Bernard; he is a very caring and dedicated doctor.
Mr. Bernard did a wonderful job, explaining the procedure and all implications of my surgery. I would recommend him to anyone requiring spinal surgery.
