      Background Information 
      Professional profile:

      Mr Byrnes qualified from Edinburgh University in 1997 and trained in St George’s, Great Ormond Street and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. His postgraduate Thesis (MD) was awarded by The University of London. The results of his research have been presented around the world and published widely in medical and scientific journals.

      After a Complex Spinal Fellowship in The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore) and NHNN (Queen Square), he worked in St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Hospital, where he specialised in complex spinal neurosurgery including complex degenerative spinal conditions. He now practices wholly privately in Surrey and Berkshire.

      Mr Byrnes is a highly skilled Spinal Neurosurgeon with broad expertise. All procedures are performed with microsurgical and minimally invasive techniques resulting in faster recovery and better outcomes.

      His ethos is “maximum benefit for minimum risk” achieved by careful clinical and neurological assessment and close attention to patients’ expectations.

      Conservative treatment is always considered first and minimally invasive surgery only advised where an expectation of good outcome is assured.
