Hi! I have a few friends who have been treated at the Nuffield and one very good friend who is under Mr Fairbanks. She thinks he's brilliant :)

If you would like to talk to her and other UK people, and don't mind joining another site too, please come and join us at www.scoliosis-support.org - we are a UK-based site and half of our members are from the UK.

I hope that the mods here don't mind us mentioning our site; a lot of us post here too, and we often send US-based members over here if we can't help them with their enquiries :) The same goes for Spinekids, which is a brilliant site for teenagers with scoli.

I had my surgery done by Dr. Bowden in January of this year. The operation was carried out at the Nuffield, but I stayed in the Oxford Clinic for Specialist Surgery. My surgery went very well, and I cannot fault any aspect of the care I was given -- except for the food! You'll be in good hands if you have your surgery done at the Nuffield.
