Mr Raj Bommireddy
Temperomandibular Joint Surgery,Spinal,Spinal Surgery,
I completed my Orthopaedic training program in London Deanery and trained as a specialist spinal surgeon in London, Liverpool and Nottingham. As a consultant in spinal surgery, I have been practicing in Derby for more than 12 years. I have a special interest in microscopic spinal surgery and minimally invasive spinal surgery to aid speedy recovery. On average I perform 300 spinal surgeries per year. Outcome data in the British Spine Registry for over 400 patients on who I performed lumbar spine surgery showed an improvement in leg and back pain following surgery. I participate in monthly complex spine surgery meetings and mortality morbidity meetings which help me to review my practice. Healthcare evaluation data published for the last five years indicates that my patients' length of hospital stay, re-operation rate and second surgery rate were comparable to Specialists Hospitals mean data. I am the lead clinician for spinal cancer in Derby Hospitals NHS Trust. I regularly teach medical students and orthopaedic trainees. I am actively involved in research and have over 30 publications in various reputed journals.
