I was diagnosed with a spinal tumour after over a year of pain in my leg at night, through an MRI scan. It was probably a neuroma and I was listed to be operated on by Mr Robert Corns under the NHS. He carried out the op with his team on the 9th of April 2018. He had discussed the small risks of adverse outcomes but had reassured me that the likelihood of them coming to fruition were very small. I went under with a small amount of trepidation and was glad to see that I had very little debilitation post op. Besides the routine pain at the operation site, I had a numb left thigh and weakness in the left leg. I was strong enough to be discharged the very next day!! I put this down to the skill of Mr Corns. 9 days later, my original nocturnal pain has gone and my numbness is improving. The left leg is getting stronger and stronger and I feel it wont be long before I am as close to 100% as one can be. It is all down to the skill with which Mr Corns performed the operation. I dont have sufficeint vocabulary to articulate my gratitude towards him.
mr rob corns is a fantastic surgeon. he removed a cyst and tumour from my brain in may 2017. this man save my life and he will be operating on me again. his manner is so easy and welcoming and actually tells it like it is, i love how he listens to you and talks back to you . his aftercare is brilliant . i cannot say how great this man is and will have no problem when he next operates on me.
A lovely man who explained things in great length and was happy to answer my questions. He is a great surgeon and my scar is so neat, hardly noticeable, which is on my hairline ear to ear . He always has a smile on his face and really puts you at ease at what is a scary worrying time. Highly recommended him
Brilliant surgeon who made me feel completely at ease during a very tricky procedure, the way he puts the patient at ease pre / during and post surgery is commendable. His after care was the envy of every other patient in the same ward as myself and his explanation of the procedures was given in such a way that we knew everything that was going to happen or could happen.
Mr Corns operated on me 2 years ago, he basically saved my life but aside from his surgery skills his follow up care was fantastic. I really trust him and would highly recommend him. He is very honest at the regular checks I now have and was able to put my husband at ease prior to my surgery.
