On July 27th of this year, Mr. Mo Akmal at the London Spine Unit performed a decompression and stabilization operation to address my 12 years of spinal stenosis degeneration. I am now 7 weeks post operation and virtually pain-free. My posture is normal, I’m able to get a proper nights sleep and I’m walking two miles per day. I honestly feel like it’s been a miracle.
Mr. Akmal treated me holistically in the most caring and professional manner imaginable, with the least invasive approach being applied to my medical condition. Truly remarkable and one-of-a-kind.
I am beyond grateful to Mr. Akmal and the staff at the London Spine Unit for the undivided care I received. A very special thank you to all of you.

Many thanks Mr Moore for your time in writing the review. We are all so pleased with your outcome and are here to continue to provide any ongoing care that youi may require. Best wishes and see you soon for your follow up.
I attended the London Spine Unit and saw Mr Akmal as I had been suffering with sciatica leg pain and lower back pain for 2 years and conventional therapies just didn’t work. Mr Akmal listened to me carefully and patiently, and looked at my MRI scans. I had degenerating facet joints, spinal stenosis and grade 1 spondylolisthesis. He then recommended decompression surgery and the insertion of a dynamic stabilisation device (Coflex) and carefully explained why, and other options I could pursue. I went with the surgery recommendation and it is the best decision I have ever made! Mr Akmal and all his team are patient, caring, highly skilled and friendly, providing excellent nursing, medical and surgical care. The anaesthesia is wonderful – no wooziness or nausea, and the pain management after the op is very effective.
The pain in my back and leg is now hugely reduced and it continues to fade day by day 2 months on from the op. Mr Akmal and his team have changed my life – thank you so much to everyone.
