Robert Lovell is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon specialising in spinal procedures. He is highly experienced and has undertaken prestigious fellowship posts, including in Australia. Alongside his NHS work and private practice, Mr Lovell is actively involved with the education of trainee surgeons and other colleagues, lecturing internationally on many aspects of spinal surgery. Further to this, he goes the extra mile in helping patients in his medico-legal and clinical negligence work, as well as talking to patient groups directly to help them.

The decision to have surgery was the best one, and I thank Mr Lovell enormously for a successful outcome as I am now 11 weeks post-op and pain-free from day one post-op.
