I am an orthopaedic deformity spinal surgeon at “The Walton Centre” Liverpool and have developed satellite service at Countess of Chester to provide care closer to patients home. My initial spinal training at University Hospital of Wales was followed by, higher training at the prestigious Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic hospital Oswestry. I was awarded masters in Trauma Surgery and have been academically very active with multiple international presentations and publications. I am a member and regularly participate with British Association of Spinal Surgeon, British Scoliosis Society, Spine Society of Europe, and British Orthopaedic Association. I am interested in all aspects of spinal surgery and my clinical practice involves spinal disorders including cervical neck pain, myelopathy, radicular pain, sciatica, stenosis, spondylolisthesis and deformity correction. I am very approachable and social person. I like to travel and enjoy hiking with family.
I was referred to Dr Rath by my GP as I had been suffering with serve leg pain due to displaced disks, I met Dr Rath at my appointment and decided on surgery being my best option, this surgery was performed by Dr Rath and his team November 2018. Dr Rath checked on me after my op and today at my 3 month check my wound was nice and neat and healed brilliantly with no infection, all in all great patient care before during and after.
It is pleasure to know that you had a great care. I wish you all the best for future ahead and get in touch if you do need any further assistance. Wishes NKR
Once surgery was decided I had my operation within 3 weeks, I couldn’t of asked for better care from Mr Rath, his secretary and the nursing staff.
Hope you are recovering well. We are always there to provide you any assistance if you do need so. Just let us know. See you soon NKR
I had a multi-level lumbar decompression operation on my spine by Mr Rath done on my birthday - what a present - I am now free of the terrible pain I had been suffering in my legs for a long time. I would recommend Mr Rath to everyone. He explained everything to me very clearly plus what could possibly go wrong. I was quite nervous about the operation but each time I had to see Mr Rath I felt more at ease. The treatment I received before and after the operation has been excellent. I was not very well the first night and the nurses were so kind to me, nothing was too much trouble. Mr Rath's secretary Maureen needs a special thank you as she too reassured me when I needed to ask her a question - or two!! I found all the leaflets and brochures given to me very helpful. The nurse doing the pre-op assessment was very efficient and it was nice to have my husband in the room with me. It was a lovely to surprise when Mr Rath came to the ward twice to see me to make sure I was progressing well. I have never had a follow-up visit from a surgeon before. I felt I could ask him anything as he was so approachable. I have mentioned to my GP that if any of his patients have similar problems to mine that Mr Rath and The Walton Hospital is the best to go to. I did appreciate that I could travel to the Countess of Chester Hospital for my final visit to see Mr Rath as it is a much easier journey for us. It is also good to know that, should I feel I need to speak to Mr Rath about my operation I could phone Maureen and she could help me to either speak to Mr Rath, or see him if necessary. Thank you very much for all that everyone in all the various departments has done for me at The Walton to make my operation such a success, especially Mr Rath.
I am very pleased to know that we have achieved the goal set out during the consultation. Once again I would take the opportunity to remind you that it is still early days and please remember the precautions during your recovery. We are very thankful for for your kind words and recommendation. I would pass it to everyone of the team and wish you speedy recovery. Kind Regards NKR
From day one when I saw him in clinic at the Countess of Chester hospital, I had a good feeling about him, he listened to what I told him, and it went on from there! There were no cutting corners, he was there to help. I arrived home from hospital today,, after an an op, there was not one day he did not come to see me. I met a consultant that was caring and very attentive
