Mr Gabriel Alo
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
BSc, MB ChB, FRCS, FRCS (Orth)
I am an Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgeon with an active NHS and private practice. I have the UK qualifications of FRCS and FRCS (Orth) and I’m enrolled on the GMC Specialist Register as well as Fellowship trained in Spinal Surgery.
My practice objective is to help people with back pain, sciatica or hip or knee joint problems return to their usual activities of daily living, work or recreation as soon as possible using the most appropriate methods, be it operative or non-operative.
I treat patients with back pain, sciatica or spinal claudication using conservative measures, spinal injections, and neurosurgical or orthopaedic procedures as appropriate for each individual case. I operate only on adults.
I actively participate in the West Midland Regional Spinal Network and related MDT activities. I attend international medical conferences in my areas of special interest.
Although my NHS practice still includes General Orthopaedics and Spinal Surgery, my Independent sector practice is focused on spines as driven by demand and interest. I still offer advice to patients who come to me based on my historic practice of hip and knee surgery but would refer them on to an appropriate colleague who specialises in hip or knee surgery and has specialised advice in those areas.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Gabriel Alo at Spire include:
