Mr Rath was absolutely brilliant, he explained everything that he found from the MRI scan, explained about how surgery would help and that he would be doing the operation, he kept myself and my wife at ease at all times. On the day of the surgery he spent time talking and explaining again what was going to happen, after the operation he phoned my wife to put her at ease, whilst in hospital he kept in regular contact with me.

Mr Rath is extremely professional. The surgery is quite intense and Mr Rath was very informative and with me every step of the way. The surgery completely resolved the issues I was having.

Doctor Rath explained the operation and associated risks fully and in great detail. He answered all questions and left me feeling confident in the chances of success of the operation. He followed up post operation to explain how it had gone and answer any questions I had. There was further contact prior to discharge and overall I was very satisfied with my contact with Dr Rath.

My son is autistic and needed a spinal op, Dr Rath was amazing with him explaining the procedure and showing him diagrams and going over it many times until my son understood . His bed side manner was astounding too, he was very down to earth not like most consultants. He made time for us and checked on him all through surgery , really easy to talk to, had great sense of humour and put us at ease.Mr Rath did the surgery through key hole and is one of very few consultants able to perform this surgery through key hole. I would definately and highly recommend Dr Rath as a surgeon and also someone who cares very much about his patients. My son was at total ease and is at last so pleased to be out of pain. He is so grateful to Dr Rath for his patience and care he showed him. The level of care we had was astounding . Many thanks

Mr Rath was kind enough to assist my chronic back pain with a bilateral medial nerve block. You made a huge difference for a few weeks, but I look forward to talking to you again to repeat the procedure as it was so relieving and gave me my life back for some time. You are warm and friendly and my husband was very grateful that you came to fill him in that everything was okay. You are genuinely a wonderful, compassionate surgeon and I am very grateful to you for your kindness & professionalism.

Earlier this year I started to experience lower back pain which gradually got worse with the pain and numbness moving down my legs to my feet, especially when walking. I decided to go private to get a diagnosis as it was affecting my life. Mr Rath was recommended to my wife as she works at Gwynedd hospital, Bangor. After receiving the diagnosis of herniated disc following MRI Mr Rath explained my options including the consequences of leaving the condition, which made my mind up to have keyhole surgery. I would highly recommend Mr Rath, easy to speak to, professional, efficient and always felt I was in good hands. I had the surgery on the 12th of October and have had little to no pain which feels amazing. I feel so grateful that there are amazing people like him which help make our lives easier to live.
