I suffered extreme back pain for many years, however I was very nervous when it came to having a back procedure. I was put at ease from the first appointment to the last one. I would like to say thank you to his secretary, Vino for all your hard work and patience with me. I was pleased with the outcome and I would highly recommend him and his team to anybody.
Having struggled to get treatment under the NHS for a chronic neck problem, I saw Tim privately at Wimbledon Clinics and after an initial consultation and Xray, I was diagnosed quickly and efficiently. Tim operated shortly after and following the surgery I made a full recovery. From start to finish everyone at the clinic was extremely professional, it was a smooth process from booking the appointments to having the surgery. I received the best of care during my stay and overall would thoroughly recommend Wimbledon Clinics and especially Mr Bishop and his team.
Had been having extreme siatic pain and had tried several months of physio which had not help resolve the issue. Via my insurance company had an appointment with Mr Bishop who listened to my symptoms and he advised potential caused but need to confirm so arranged for an MRI. Follow up appointment after MRI and Mr Bishop ran through the results which confirmed his initial thoughts and he explained the options available to me along with details as to risks of them and the chances of success. He explained things in terms I could understand and made sure I understood things so that I could then have a think and make an informed decision. Operation was booked in, on the day Mr Bishop came to check things before going to surgery also the other staff that were involved in the operation. Making sure I was happy and OK. After the operation the pain caused by the disc protruding was gone which was a huge relief. Had a couple of follow up appointments with Mr Bishop to monitor the progress of recovery. All through the process Mr Bishop was excellent explaining things in understandable terms and making sure I was happy and had info to make my own decision.
My back operation was a success - nerve untrapped and the major pain and discomfort in my leg disappeared. Top marks for care before and after the op and at follow-up appointments. Once decided to go ahead with op minimum waiting time. Excellent admin too.
