My GP swears by Dr Pope and I had no reason to doubt that trust. My lower back pain and sciatica was affecting me terribly. Nothing was working and I was in trouble. Dr Pope saw me 3 times and fusion from the front seemed logical. He explained the options and I wanted more info on the fusion. He was clear and the whole process was easy to follow. I am now 3 months after the op and sm doing really well. He guided me to some trusted physios and I could not be happier. He has been just as my GP said.

I am very pleased with the ALIF fusion at L5/S1 for my back and leg pain. I was home 3 days after surgery and my pain is gone. The whole experience was first class and I was very confident I knew all the facts before signing up.

Saw Dr Pope for a bulging disc in my neck with severe left arm pain to my hand. Very disabled and tried all sorts of other treatment before being referred by my concerned GP. Dr Pope gave me a number of options of treatment including surgical ones and I had my questions answered. After some time, it was obvious that surgery was needed and he performed a disc replacement procedure. This cured me of all neck and arm pain almost immediately and I was home the next morning. I am still pain free and have full strength in my arm 6 months later and cannot state how grateful I am for Dr Pope's help. He was patient and kind and let me decide what suited me. I recommend him to everyone who asks.

Referred by my GP with disc bulge and back and leg pain. Tried all the physio, pain killers, cortisone shots and not better. He gave me options and then surgery was one and I had the keyhole disc removal and was out the same day! Feeling great and Dr Pope explained things so well and let me decide in my own time. The whole experience was good and his staff were very helpful. I cannot thank what he has done for me to get my life back. Highly recommended.
