Mr Leach was my Surgeon, I was diagnosed with an ependymoma and large cystic mass in my spinal cord. Surgery was my only option otherwise I would of been paralysed. He was thorough and straight to the point and explained the surgery was very risky, however he had to tell me this. I basically had to trust him and go with it. Surgery was carried out 18th Nov 20 I was under 5.5 hours, he ended up amputating part of spinal cord due to the tumour being entwined. I am here to tell the tale, was back driving within a week walked following day. Feeling better than I did prior to the Surgery, I know its going to be continual monitoring etc but alive and kicking. I totally felt at ease and trusted him, when you actually speak to him he is straight down the line, which I prefer. He is a true Professional and is very knowledgeable in this area of medicine. I would highly recommend Mr. John Leach, if you are unluckily diagnosed with similar conditions to mine.
