“I recently had 2 surgeries, both carried out by Mr Robert Lee. Everything was explained to me in great detail.. my condition, what would happen in each surgery, what to expect post surgery recovery and the aftercare I would need. Mr Lee has done an amazing job, my physiotherapist even mentioned this also. He has helped me so much and literally changed my life for the better. He remained informative and professional throughout my care and is the nicest person! Cannot recommend Mr Robert Lee enough. “

    Mr Robert Lee is a Consultant Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgeon at The Wellington Hospital, working within the hospital’s internationally renowned Spinal Unit. He routinely treats highly complex cases that have been referred from centres around the UK.

    He has extensive experience in complex adult degenerative  disease, deformity (spondylolisthesis and adult scoliosis),  sacroiliac joint fusion, revision cases, infection, tumour  (primary and metastatic) and trauma work. He specialises  in posterior and anterior minimally invasive fusions and  decompressions, with the emphasis on preservation of the  paraspinal musculature and fast rehabilitation.
