    About

    James Allibone was appointed as a Consultant Spinal Neurosurgeon at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in 2002. He was the Lead Spinal Surgeon at the Hospital. In 2007 he moved his NHS practice to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN). He is currently the Lead Spinal Surgeon at NHNN.

    Mr Allibone graduated from The London Hospital College in 1989 and undertook general surgical training at St Bartholomew's Hospital. He did his neurosurgery training in North London at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

    He has a special interest in degenerative disease of the lumbar, thoracic, cervical spine and spinal tumours. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the conservative and surgical management of these cases.

    Mr Allibone is a member of the National Clinical Reference Group for Spinal Services and Lead Clinician of the Complex Spinal Group at the NHNN. He has led the North London Metastatic Spinal Tumour Group, and he sat on the executive council of the British Association of Spinal Surgeons. Mr Allibone presents at various national and international meetings.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

    The one thing that I really noted and appreciated was the time Dr Allibone gave me. Dr Allibone sat with me, we went through the whole procedure, all questions that I had were answered & explained throughly, it didn’t matter how ridiculous the question it was answered and wasn’t rushed. It’s important for my anxiety that things are explained in the most simplest form to put me at ease. Dr Allibone came to see me the morning of my procedure, reassuring me that everything was going to be okay, he visited me whilst on the ward, I can’t remember much but it was a wonderful feeling of his care & compassion after our journey together. I would highly recommend Dr Allibone, and would like to thank him & his team for everything that they’ve done for me.
