Mr Langdon qualified from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School (Imperial College), and later undertook his specialist training at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. He subsequently underwent a one-year UK advanced training fellowship in spinal surgery. Mr Langdon is on the GMC specialist register for orthopaedic surgery, and is a member of the British Association of Spinal Surgeons. He is a consultant orthopaedic spinal surgeon at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
Mr Langdon’s main surgical interest is in the use of minimally invasive spinal surgical techniques. He believes that the use of these techniques improves patient outcomes and reduces length of hospital stay. He offers a full range of surgical treatments for degenerative spinal conditions including lumbar microdiscectomy, spinal decompression, minimally invasive spinal fusions, anterior cervical decompression and fusion/disc replacement, and balloon kyphoplasty, as well as spinal injections. Mr Langdon ensures he takes the time to explain things clearly in easy-to-understand terms, enabling patients to make informed decisions about their treatment.
Mr Langdon has published several research papers on trauma and orthopaedic surgery, and has presented this work at both national and international meetings.
