What our Clients Say
I was in severe back pain, for two years. I never endured such back and leg pain in my whole life before. All that changed like a miracle with my first encounter with Spine Surgeon Mr Mangattil Rajesh. And even though I have recovered fully from my Spine Surgery, he still keeps eye on me and I appreciate this kind gesture.
I consider myself very fortunate to have met Spine Surgeon Mr Rajesh. I had been suffering with a deteriorating severe back pain affecting both my mobility. From my very first consultation, I felt I was being listened to very attentively. He gave me the confidence for spine surgery and cared for me well beyond the ‘Statutory Duty of Care’.
