“I came to Mr Taylor with severe Scheuermann's Kyphosis that caused a hunched-over appearance and chronic pain. At the age of 20, it was hardly something I wanted to deal with for the rest of my life. An operation was neededbeforethe curvature which would fuse my spine with rods and screws. I saw several Orthopaedic surgeons prior to Mr Taylor, but not one was as comforting and nor professional. I knew straight away that I could completely trust him. The surgery has been significantly life-improving and Mr Taylor has explained everything perfectly along the way. I would do it all over again if I had to. His secretary Alison also deserves just as much credit! I have never spoken to such a genuinely caring and lovely secretary ever. I could contact her at any point if there were any questions I had, and she would do everything she could to get an answer. She was simply amazing. I wish there were far more Alisons in this world! “
