Mr Corns was a breath of fresh air. Realistic and down to earth, said it how it was. At the same time, caring and a good sense of humour. Not many consultants would recognise my wife wandering in the reception area and walk with her to to my bed. His expertise is remarkable and the only reason I will be able to carry on my life as normal. All staff, both medical, nursing and physio were superb. I am very grateful.
All i can ssy Dr Corne is an amazing Dr, who has specialist skills snd abilities helping and saving people. He is a nice person,polite, professional. He is the best person i know. He saved my life and i had major operation in sept 2018 snd saved my life from a grade 1 meningioma on the besin. Overall my life i can live, although changed from the tumour totally removed i am a new me with a thankful life to live. He is the Dr and great.
In August 1919, Mr Corns, Consultant Neuro Surgeon at Leeds General Infirmery (LGI), diagnosed compression on my spinal cord caused by a bulging disk between c6 and c7 vertebrae in my neck causing numbness in my hands which was worsening. If not treated, the prognosis was not good. Fusion surgery was scheduled at The LGI for 16th September, but I was contacted by them to say I could have the operation at The Leeds Nuffield Hospital on 6th september if I was willing. I readily agreed and am pleased to say that, thanks to Mr Corns and his splendid team, the operation went without hitch and I was duly discharged on 7th September. Recovery has been excellent and the operation, which sounded quite challenging, has been by far the least stressful of all the operations I have previously undergone. Mr Corns skill as a Surgeon and his friendly manner cannot be overpraised. Huge thanks to him and his team at The LGI, The Nuffield and of course the dear old NHS.
Mr Corns took great care to explain all aspects with regard to the operation. He gave me the confidence to proceed. The outcome was amazing and all pain from neck to hand was gone. I now have my life back. Thank you so much Mr Corns.
I cannot praise Mr Robert Corns highly enough, not only for his fantastic expertise as a very fine surgeon but for the whole patient experience. Mr Corns is so approachable, friendly, reassuring and a great listener - an abolute pleasure to deal with and a breath of fresh air in that nothing is too much trouble and you can't help but feel that you are in an extremely safe pair of hands, which indeed you are. Mr Corns has successfully treated and fixed (by means of pedicle screw fixation surgery) what was an extremely painful and debilitating spinal problem, emanating from two prolapsed discs and I will always be eternally grateful to him for freeing me up to get on with my life again.
