"Visit to see Consultant"

Anything else?

I visited North Downs again on the 8thJuly for a caudal epidural & MUA ( spine manipulation under a mild anaesthetic) The procedure was carried out by a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and I have to say he is very experienced and knowledgeable with a number of solutions to deal with the problem before having to go into surgery. He is also a very pleasant and caring person with the patients condition in mind at all times. His team was most kind and considerate as was all the staff at the Hospital.
