Facet Joint Arthropathy + Minor Bone Endplate Changes

Words are inadequate to illustrate the excellence of the treatment I have received. This time last year I was a very worried man. Unable to walk, sleep or, at times, even get off the bed to go to the lavatory. I fainted with pain several times. Two weeks in and oput of UCL and the National Hosp for Neurology and Neural Surgery by ambulance failed to diagnose or resolve the problem. Five minutes with Mr Akmal and a diagnosis was made. The diagnosis was confirmed following an MRI scan on the same day. Treatment was arranged within a few days and the result can be seen on the returned questionnaire! Wonderful !
