Consultants – London Spine Specialists

In fact, our doctors discuss the most complex cases at regular multidisciplinary meetings. These meetings involve spine surgeons, radiologists, neurologists, rheumatologists, pain specialists, physiotherapists, and others. The goal is presenting clinical information and imaging, so these specialists can contribute with their valuable point of view.
