Mr Crocker treated my teenage son who required extensive spinal surgery. It was an incredibly difficult time for our family, and frankly, the worst time of my life. I think what made it bearable was knowing that we had the services of such an outstanding surgeon as Mr Crocker. We owe Mr Crocker a lot. My son is back to full health, thanks to Mr Crocker’s skill and care. So terribly sad to hear about his passing.

Mr Crocker was recommended to me by a friend who is a Plastic Surgeon, and I also cannot recommend him highly enough - his care of me from the start has been exceptional in every way. I initially saw him privately in September for a second opinion after a diagnosis of facet joint degeneration and spinal stenosis requiring surgery, and I had immediate trust in him. Having confidence in the surgeon who was going to operate on my spine was essential to me - I didn't want any Tom, Dick or Harry having a practice on my back on their first day to see if they were any good at spinal surgery! He took a considerable amount of time discussing the options and risks with me to ensure I understood, and in addition his recommended surgery was discussed at the MDT meeting at St Georges which added a further layer of confidence for me. In the end my symptoms deteriorated quickly and I had a successful emergency lumbar decompression and fusion for cauda equine at St Georges performed by Mr Crocker and his fellow Hassan Raza late at night. Despite the operation not finishing until 2am, Mr Crocker was back at my bedside at 8am the next morning checking on me, and he and Hassan continued with daily (sometimes twice daily) visits throughout my stay in hospital. After discharge he has called me a number of times to check on my progress and I know that this is highly unusual for consultants, but one that was much appreciated - knowing that he was there if I needed advice made a huge difference. I am now 12 weeks (today) post surgery and all of my previous symptoms of nerve, buttock and hip pain have now gone and overall I feel great - it's hard to believe that I had put up with pain and restricted movement for such a long time - so much so that I had normalised it and had resigned myself (due to previous misdiagnosis) that this was normal ageing! With the exception of running and cycling, I am back to my normal life again and I will be eternally grateful to Mr Crocker for helping me to get my life back again.
