Retirement from Private Practice

At the beginning of December 2014, Mr Krishna made the decision to retire from private practice. After almost 20 years of working tirelessly to help people suffering with back and neck pain, he felt it was time to slow the pace of his life and pursue other interests which had been put on the back burner for so long.

The coffee mornings and Spinal Support meetings held at the Nuffield Hospitals have now ceased.

Mr Krishna is continuing to work part-time at North Tees University Hospital.

October York Coffee Morning

There is a coffee morning at Nuffield Health York Hospital, Haxby Road, YO31 8TA on Wednesday 15th October from 10am till noon. It is free to attend and you will be made very welcome. Bring a family member or friend for support if you wish. Please email sally@spinalsurgeon.com or phone her on 07714 503395 for more information.

YORK’S AUTUMN SPINAL SUPPORT MEETING

Our next York Spinal Support Meeting will be held on Saturday 4th October 2014 from 10am till noon. It is held at Nuffield Health York Hospital, Haxby Road, York YO31 8TA.
Mr Krishna will be there and we hope to see many familiar faces and some new ones too. If you haven’t been to one for a while, please do come along. It is so lovely to have the opportunity to “catch up”. If you haven’t been to one at all, then don’t be shy, come along and find out what can be done to help you. Bring a family member or a friend for support if you wish.
It is free to attend – if you would like to find out more then email sally@spinalsurgeon.com or phone 07714 503395

Support Meetings

We have had some lovely feedback recently about all of our Support Meetings and Coffee Mornings. If you have not been to one yet, please don’t be shy. Have a look at the dates for the next available one in your area and come along. It is a good idea to bring a family member or friend with you but it is also perfectly fine to come on your own. We also really value the time given by our patients who have undergone procedures and who are able to come along to share their experience with others. It is a lovely way of keeping in touch too and we will always be delighted to see you.

York Coffee Morning

We are holding our monthly coffee morning at York Nuffield Hospital, Haxby Road, York YO31 8TA on Wednesday 16th July from 10am till noon.
If you would like to come, please contact Sally – 07714 503395 or email sally@spinalsurgeon.com to let her know. Please bring someone with you if you wish.

Carlisle Coffee Morning Saturday 24th May – Cancelled

We’ve had two successful coffee mornings this week in Tees and York. It was nice to see familiar faces and some new ones too.

Sadly we have decided to cancel the Carlisle meeting due to lack of support.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. If you would like to talk anything over with our Patient Liaison Sally Howe she can be contacted on 07714 503395 or sally@spinalsurgeon.com

May Up and coming Coffee Mornings

We hold regular coffee mornings to enable patients who are considering spinal treatment the opportunity to meet fellow back pain sufferers, meet the hospital staff and have a look around the facilities.

These informal sessions are open to patients, their friends, families and carers and give you the opportunity to talk to people who have already undergone treatment and share experiences. A member of the Physiotherapy and clinical team is also on hand to answer any questions or queries you may have about what your treatment entails and the aftercare you will receive.

The coffee mornings are open to all, but we do ask that you register your intent to attend (just so we have enough cups of tea!). If you would like to come, please contact Sally Howe on sally@spinalsurgeon.com or call 07714 503 395.
