“I recently had surgery under the care of Mr Malik and am now pain free for the first time in a year. I can not recommend Mr Malik highly enough. The support I received from him and his team was faultless. Would also like to thank Mary, Mr Malik’s PA for the care and time she has spent with me.“

    About

    Mr Irfan Malik is a highly experienced Consultant Neurosurgeon who has a special interest in spinal neurosurgery. He originally completed his neurosurgical training in Pakistan and continued his advanced training here in the UK at The Royal Hallamshire Hospital and the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire between 2001-2006. After this, he was awarded his FRCS(SN) and continued to build on his experience by completing Fellowships in Complex spine and Epilepsy surgery from the University Hospital Coventry and King’s College Hospital, London.

    Mr Malik's interests lie around the diagnosis and management of a wide range of spinal problems from degenerative disease to traumatic and malignant spinal disorders. Mr Malik tackles the conditions from a surgical but also a non-surgical point of view. He is particularly competent at using minimally invasive techniques for surgical procedures such as disk replacement and the treatment of neck pain, back pain and arm pain as well as sciatica. Additionally, he has carried out the most endoscopic spinal surgeries (keyhole surgeries) than any other UK spinal surgeon.

    To complement his clinical work, he trains other UK and international surgeons who wish to learn how to complete the procedure. Together with spinal surgery, Mr Malik also takes a keen interest in the treatment of epilepsy at his private practices.

    From the beginning to end everyone was helpful and kept us up to date. You, secretaries were very helpful regarding places to stay and sending letters on time, even when emails were not working. During the stay in the Harley Street Clinic everyone was very nice and friendly, provided us with information and they told you everything in plain English, explained everything in Layman's terms. Before surgery I was told that it will be a bonus if some symptoms improved and they have now improved, so that is an extra bonus. Thank you very much to Mr Malik and all of the team.

    Mr Malik was very professional, taking the time to explain everything in detail and addressing my questions/concerns. I felt reassured by his expertise and conscientiousness.
