I am Mr. Narendra Kumar Rath, a Consultant Spinal Surgeon at The Walton Centre, known for my expertise in spinal pathology. My journey began in the tribal region of Odisha, India, where my parents’ service in the Armed Forces instilled in me discipline and strong interpersonal skills.

I completed my medical education in India before venturing to the UK for advanced surgical training. I achieved a prestigious Completion of Training (CCT) in Trauma and Orthopaedics, solidifying my commitment to the field. My passion for spinal surgery led me to a fellowship at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Hospital, where I specialized in deformity correction and minimally invasive techniques.

My practice covers the full spectrum of spinal care, with a particular emphasis on Endoscopic Spinal Surgery (Keyhole surgery) and deformity correction. At The Walton Centre, a renowned Centre of Excellence in Neurosciences, I’ve had the privilege of broadening my skills to include neurosurgical aspects of spinal surgery.

Beyond my profession, I’m captivated by the rich history and natural beauty of the region. Additionally, my fascination with the legacy of sports in the area, particularly Liverpool Football and Rugby, has always been a source of inspiration. I approach life with an easy-going demeanor, and I’m dedicated to providing the highest level of care to my patients. You can trust me as your choice for top-notch spinal care.
