About Dr Mangattil Rajesh

Consultant Spine Surgeon
Mr Mangattil Rajesh is among the leading Spine Surgeons in the UK.


I am a Consultant Spine Surgeon at The Royal London Hospital & Barts Health NHS Trust in London – a British-trained Spine Surgeon with 3 Spine fellowships from London, Manchester and Middlesborough. I also trained in Endoscopic Spine Surgery at The Bagatel Endoscopic Centre, Bordeaux, France under Professor Destandau.

Your safety is the top priority and all the rest can wait. As the Head of Clinical Governance in Trauma & Orthopaedics, I oversee all aspects of patient safety in their treatment journey.

Here at www.spinesurgeon.london, we put you and your interest first. I consider surgery to be the last resort after carefully considering all the conservative non-surgical options available to us. 

However, if surgery appears to be necessary, I perform Minimally Invasive Surgery for minimal tissue dissection, faster recovery and early return to your normal activities of daily living. 

I believe in giving you the best care possible not only in the management of your condition but also to make long-term pain relief possible!

Please read what my patients say here…

Feel free to reach out to me if you need help with your back pain or neck pain. I will take time to listen and will make sure to be available for you!

Mangattil Rajesh has personal experience of back pain and back surgery himself.

He says….

“I am very keen to explain my personal experience and struggle with back pain. I have the first hand knowledge and experience of back pain with sciatica. I understands what your going thorough at the moment. The mental anguish, dilemma and the lack of information  adds to the stress and pain”.


Awarded an MCh degree for my original work on the “Biomechanical analysis of the stabilisation properties of the Halder Humeral Nail” done under Professor Angus Wallace, Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham. 

Won the “Young Innovator Award” for my unique and simple ‘Torque Testing Rig’ that translated rotatory moments to linear measurements.

Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) – Completed a prospective randomised controlled trial comparing NuNec vs Prestige Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement. This has given me a better understanding on back and neck pain problems. 

I am very obsessed with the quality of care delivered to my patients and to offer them a great and exceptional value. My healthcare initiative ‘Nexus Ortho’ was very successful in delivering quality care for patients, teaching and training young surgeons in India.
