"Back Surgery"

About: National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery, Queen Square

I had back surgery in February and I must say the staff here are amazing they are supportive and caring above and beyond. I was petrified of my procedure and they assured me they would be there all the way. I had a mishap during my surgery where they knocked my spinal cord and cut it slightly resulting in a drainage in my back and more days on the hospital. Regardless of the surgeons mistake the aftercare and ward staff are amazing. Always on hand to help you and there to put a smile on your face. The beds were comfy the food was good just the lack of technology adaptive equipment such as wifi or free TV. As staying there can be boring I would suggest a book or a little DVD player as reception is low in there :-)
