Mr Drahoslav Sokol
MUDr (Medicinae Universae Doctor)
I am a fellowship trained consultant neurosurgeon. I was appointed to my current post of consultant neurosurgeon in NHS Lothian in 2013. In private practice I focus on treating cervical disc herniation, lumbar disc herniation, spinal stenosis and other degenerative spine disorders. My expertise however encompasses much broader field of neurosurgery and I can provide consultations in that regard.
