Mr Thorpe operated on my spine on 9 October 2014. After the op I was in hospital for nearly 4 weeks and he regularly came to see me. Looking back I feel so grateful that it was him that performed the surgery. The op lasted for 7 hours and I believe that it was an extremely difficult operation and clearly a huge responsibility for him as it was performed so close to my spinal chord. Since then I have made super progress, no longer experiencing horrendous back pain. I can now touch my toes with straight legs. Mr Thorpe came across to me not only as an extremely competent surgeon but as a very kind man, working so hard to provide his patients with the very best treatment, courtesy and compassion. He is a wonderful example of the brilliant staff in Musgrove Hospital and I feel very priviledged that he was my surgeon Ann Adamson

I was in a very difficult place when I first met with Paul Thorpe.I had been in severe pain for nine months, had various unsuccessful interventions and my condition was rapidly deteriorating. From being a very active person I was unable to walk without the aid of a stick and just about able to take care of myself at home. Mr Thorpe took time to explain my condition and gave me a full explanation of the options available. When discussing surgery he explained what to expect, the intended benefits as well as the risks. All was explained in such a kind, caring, reassuring and professional manner, which I so appreciated as I was at an all time low. I decided to go ahead with surgery a degenerative scoliosis correction with instrumental fusion & revision decompression, and this took place three weeks ago. I can't thank Paul Thorpe and his team enough for giving me the best individual care possible. I am now on the road to recovery and quite amazed as to how I am doing. I am aware it is early days yet, but having been given the chance by the amazing skills of Paul Thorpe I will do everything I can to work towards a full recovery.
