“I am 85 years old and have never had any surgery. I was terrified of the thought of an operation but my mobility was deteriorating and my pain was almost unbearable even with strong medication. At the first consultation Mr Malik was very understanding and professional and explained in easy to understand language what my operation would entail. He allayed my concerns and anxiety and gave me confidence. The operation took place within weeks of this consultation. When I came round from surgery the excruciating pain that I had been experiencing for years had gone. It is now 9 weeks since surgery and I have been able to come off my pain medication. I saw Mr Malik last week for a post op consultation and cannot praise him enough. He answered all my questions in easy to understand language again and was very kind and politely me. In my opinion Mr Malik is not only a brilliant surgeon but he has integrity too. “

    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.
