    Sheila Werry

    TV Make-Up Artist

    Problem:Incapacitating back and leg pains
    Diagnosis:Lumbar stenosis and adult degenerative scoliosis
    Treatment:Lumbar decompression, osteotomies and thoracolumbarsacral instrumentation fusion

    "The combined result of both operations is nothing short of a miracle. Thanks to Mr Jackowski and his team I'm no longer in pain, I can stand upright and I don't lean to one side - things we all take for granted. When I saw his name in the Sunday Times list of 'Britain's Top Surgeons' I wasn't in the least surprised. He has richly earned that accolade and on behalf of all of his many patients to whom he's handed back their active life I can only say a heartfelt, but totally inadequate 'Thank You'. If this testimonial appears to be over-the-top, trust me - it isn't. He is a truly remarkable man and I can't believe my luck that we found him.."

    Robert McCracken

    Former British and Commonwealth Middleweight boxing champion and Team GB Olympic boxing coach.

    Problem:Severe neck pain and left arm pain
    Diagnosis:Cervical disc prolapse with nerve root compression
    Treatment:Anterolateral foraminotomy

    "I consider myself very lucky to have met Mr Jackowski. In those days not many people came back from an injury like I had. I not only came back but also had a crack at a world title. It also enabled me to gather the ring experience I needed to then move into training. "There is a lot of confidence in the camp and we could be picking up a fair share of medals. I hope Mr Jackowski will be keeping his eye on developments - if we do win a gold I'll be sending him a bottle of Champagne as my own little thank you present."

    Christopher Mintern

    Company Director

    Problem:Severe neck pain and left arm pain
    Diagnosis:Acute cervical disc prolapse
    Treatment:Anterolateral foraminotomy

    "I can honestly say that as soon as I opened my eyes after the operation the pain I had endured in previous weeks had completely gone. There was some slight soreness of my neck where the incision had been made - but this was absolutely nothing in comparison to what I had been experiencing. I was scheduled to stay in hospital for 2 nights - but my recovery was considered good enough to allow me home the very next day. I would wholeheartedly recommend any person in a similar situation to contact Mr Andre Jackowski at The Birmingham Spinal Clinic."

    Dion Dublin

    Famous English footballer who was capped four times for England

    Problem:Broken neck from a tackle
    Diagnosis:Crush fracture of fifth cervical vertebra
    Treatment:Bone grafting to spine and titanium plate fixation

    "At the age of 29 I broke my neck during a match. The support I had at the time from those around me was amazing. If I hadn't had the help from family, friends, my physio Jim Walker, Dr Barry Smith and my surgeon Mr Andre Jackowski, I can't imagine where I would be now. Mr Jackowski told me Dion, you've broken your neck. I'm just going home to have something to eat and I'll come back and put you right. He was so confident. I thought he was being blase but I now know he's an amazing person. He told me I'd be playing again in three-and-a-half months. Almost exactly to the day, I was back on the pitch."

    Consultant Physician

    Problem:Rheumatoid arthritis and impending paralysis
    Diagnosis:Severe deformity of neck with spinal cord compression
    Treatment:Combined anterior and posterior complex spine surgery

    "I am pleased and relieved that I do not suffer from neck and muscle pain any more and have fully recovered. My family sees Mr. Jackowski as no less than the almighty and I do not have the right words to thank and praise this great surgeon who has a unique blend of kindness, professionalism, modesty but with confidence, expertise and excellent surgical skills and as medic I would certainly want to take a leaf out of his book !"

I have had excellent treatment and I would most definitely recommend Mr Jackowski"
