Testimonials

I cannot thank Mr Joshi enough. I was treated quickly & am making a good recovery after spinal surgery. I was given all the information I needed to make an informed decision about surgery. He has given me more information to prevent more surgery.

I would definitely recommend this Doctor.

Mr Joshi is totally focused on patient needs. His motto is not to operate unless absolutely necessary especially with spinal issues At every stage, I felt very safe and involved in my treatment. My life is back on track now due to Mr Josh’s skills.

Absolutely delighted with the outcome of my procedure. Mr Joshi has given me a new lease of life.

I have complete confidence in this surgeon’s abilities

He is an exceptional surgeon. I was apprehensive when told all the things that could go wrong, but he put me at ease, so I went through with the operation. I had no pain whatsoever from the time I woke from the anesthetic and still pain free weeks later.

I found Mr Joshi very down to earth and an incredibly knowledgeable neurosurgeon He outlined succinctly how he would resolve my back issues Performed my planned surgery which was a total success Discharged at 4 weeks with advice to maintain future back health

I genuinely cannot fault my treatment & care from start to finish. Absolutely fantastic

A very professional and friendly gentleman.
