Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

“In 2004 I had a major bone cancer operation on my leg. Almost instantly, I began suffering from sharp leg pain. It was awful! It affected me in many ways. Not only was I in physical pain but it was beginning to affect my mood and the way I interacted with other people. More recently I have developed lower back pain.

“I tried pain killers but they never did the job. I went to the local doctors and they referred me to Spire Elland Hospital. They mentioned Dr Gorelov, in particular, would be able to help. When I came to see Dr Gorelov I couldn’t have been happier with the way he treated me. He is a lovely and polite man, very caring! He treated my back pain with radiofrequency denervation. On a separate occasion, for my post-surgical pain in the leg, he performed a sympathetic block with an excellent result.

“After my treatment, I was pain-free instantly. I only had to be sedated too which reassured me. The staff at the hospital were very nice; they couldn’t do enough to help you.

“Now I feel great! I didn’t have to wait to recover, nothing. At my follow-up (appointment), Dr Gorelov was very happy with my result. Since then I’ve been able to do things I couldn’t before. I can walk further and I recently went dancing for the first time in years! It’s really nice when my friends say they can see that I’m not in any physical pain, complimenting me that I look happier than I have done for a long time.

“If you get the chance to see Dr Gorelov, go for it!”
