Consultant Spinal Surgeon

This web site is aimed at providing useful information to patients seeking treatment of a spinal condition and to provide an insight into the treatments offered by Mr Orpen. It may offer some useful information on common spinal conditions and allow the reader to get a better understanding of commonly confusing medical terminology.

Mr Orpen is a fellowship trained consultant spinal surgeon working in conjunction with other allied health professionals all with a specialist interest in the spine and conditions that lead to symptoms such as back pain/sciatica and neuropathic limb pain.

A full range of non-operative and operative therapy can be offered/discussed allowing patients to make their own choice as to the best solution for their condition. There is always a strict adherance to current standards of excellence and an evidence based approach to what treatment to consider.

The British Spine Registry is a national registry allowing the reporting of all procedure outcomes and allowing careful longer term follow-up after patients have been discharged.

If you have had a procedure performed by Mr Orpen, this would have been discussed at the time and spine registry follow-up is monitored by email. This is a vital part of your care and it is very helpful to keep replying to these questionnaires when you have recovered.
