I am very pleased with the level of care I have received from Mr Pushpananthan and the large team of people who dealt with me - I was a (very) short-notice admission, so I've seen more of him after the procedure than before; Mr Pushpananthan both listens and explains clearly using the minimum terminology necessary for clarity. I'm once again impressed with what the NHS provides under difficult circumstances whenever it can - access to some of the very best specialists available anywhere. Thanks to them I'm on the road to recovery. Much appreciated.
My mother had posterolateral fusion and decompression surgery performed by Mr Pushpananthan in 2014. His surgery and care was excellent throughout. We are very happy with the outcome. We would highly recommend Mr Pushpananthan and the neuro-surgical team at the Royal London.
I have only praise for Mr Pushpananthan. From the moment we met, on the day of my operation, I felt safe and in the best hands - he was thorough, caring and took time to explain all details of the procedure. On follow-up appointments, with either Mr Pushpananthan or a member of his team, I have always been satisfied that I have been listened to, and treated with respect and expertise. I feel very lucky to have been in his care.
I am a work experience student and throughout my time observing a variety of doctors throughout many different hospitals, Mr Pushpanathan, was most definitely one of the finest doctors, in my opinion. His work is immaculate and takes great pride in his profession, constantly trying to help his patients. He is one of the very few doctors that I have met who is not dismissive at all and really listens and talks through his though-processes with the patients so they really comprehend the situation that they're in. This kind of personality is very rare and undoubtedly special.
