When I first met Mr Rafid Al-Mahfoudh I was at my wits end. My health was deteriating and I was losing mobility and feeling in my hands and arms. Mr Rafid Al-Mahfoudh did not rush into surgery but made sure that all other avenues were tried. Only then did he suggest surgery and explained carefully the potential risks and probable positive outcomes. Mr Rafid Al-Mahfoudh performed a C6 C7 Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion in October last year at Nuffield Haywards Heath. As soon as I can round after surgery, I had better feeling and the pain that I had been in was gone. I went home the following day. Now, almost 6 months on I am fit, have mobility back and am looking forward to getting on with my life. I cannot recommend the surgeon enough.
I recently had microdiscectomy at Nuffield health Brighton by Mr Al Mahfoudh .I rate him as excellent and my surgery as a success and positive experience . He was understanding kind and listened to me throughout my consultations . I would highly recommend him as a kind lovely understanding man and excellent surgeon .I respect and trust his extensive clinical knowledge and would only choose to see him if needed in the future .
I cannot find adequate words to sum up how much I am indebted to Mr Rafid Al-Mahfoudh for operating on my back 2 years ago. This is my best attempt: After 20 years of increasing levels of pain and decreasing levels of mobility (and on my 68th birthday!) he operated for over eight hours at The Royal Sussex Hospital to insert pins and a cage (L4/5 PLIF) to correct L4/5 spondylolisthesis and L4/5 stenosis. It was the best birthday present ever. Now, virtually pain free, fully mobile and back working full time, I have this wonderful surgeon to thank for getting my life back. After my surgery, Mr Al-Mahfoudh kept me fully informed of what he had done, sharing with me the x-rays and MRI results and fully explaining the process and the stages of recovery. He answered all my questions, however dopey they were, exuding genuine excitement when talking about his work and its positive outcomes. I found Mr Al-Mahfoudh to be a phenomenally hard-working and talented surgeon who had researched, updated and developed his surgical practice engaging with me at every stage of my treatment. I know I have been so very fortunate to have been under his care.
Mr Al Mafoudh is a very compassionate and caring surgeon giving comfort at a very scarey time . I would trust him with my life. I cannot thank him enough for his support and the confidence he has given me. He is a great advert for the caring NHS
I have been under the care of Mr Al-Mahfoudh for the past 18 month for a prolapsed disc. After 2 unsuccessful steroid injections I decided to have surgery which Mr Al-Mahfoudh suggested and talked me through. The surgery was carried out by Mr Al-Mahfoudh at Spire hospital in Gatwick. Mr Al-Mahfoudh provided information at every step through my consultation and went through the procedure. I felt very reassured throughout. After the operation I was back up and walking the day after the op and discharged after 2 days. I have now been pain free for 3 months. I would recommend Mr Al-Mahfound to anyone looks for a consultant to discuss back pain. He is professional, thorough and provides excellent care.
