Mr Naffis Anjarwalla

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

FRCS (Tr & Orth)

I am a Consultant surgeon specialising in spinal surgery. My specialist interests include the management of cervical, thoracic and lumbar degenerative disorders and spinal injury.

Having graduated from Oxford University and finished my medical training at St Thomas’ Hospital in 1993, I continued my surgical training on the Charing Cross Hospital surgical rotation in London and Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge. Subsequently, I completed my postgraduate research gaining an MS at Imperial College. I then completed my orthopaedic training on the North West Thames rotation and undertook a Spinal Fellowship in Adelaide with Professor Robert Fraser. I have been a Consultant Spinal Surgeon at Heatherwood and Wexham Hospitals since 2006.

I believe that not everyone needs to have an operation and can often be managed with treatments that are not invasive. I will see and assess you and ensure that I am able to understand what the problem is and explain this to you. Following discussions you should have a plan for you to improve and treat the problem that you have. I am skilled in a range of spinal treatments including minimally invasive procedures and can treat problems of trapped nerves, disc problems, trauma, worn joints, instability and sport related problems. I will be happy to discuss these in detail with you as I think it is important that you are always fully informed of your treatment and what other treatments are available.

I continue research into the understanding of spinal problems and teach trainee doctors and work as part of a multidisciplinary team aiming to treat peoples back problems.

I have been the President of the Society of Back Pain Research and continue to represent the UK within the European Spine Society.
