About me

Mr Montgomery developed his interest in Spinal Surgery working at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, and at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore). As a registrar He trained as a registrar in Spinal surgical departments in Great Ormond Street, Barts and the London Hospital, and North West London Hospital NHS Trust.

Mr Montgomery is a Consultant Spinal and Orthopaedic Surgeon at St Bartholomew's and Royal London teaching hospital and he has set up the Spinal Orthopaedic Unit in the new Hospital. This has included developing new pathways for Spinal Management, as well as obtaining new theatre operating tables and equipment. He has set up various multidisciplinary weekly meetings with physiotherapists, Neurosurgeons, and the spinal pain service for elective surgery, as well as with the Trauma and Intensive Care service for emergencies that come through this tertiary Level One Trauma Centre.
The surgery Alexander performs at the hospital ranges from operations using microscopes and minimally invasive techniques to treat disc prolapses, to lumbar or cervical fusions and complex deformity cases. Work has already begun with colleagues at the Hospital and partners at Queen Mary University, to build a Spinal Research Unit with International collaborations.

Mr Montgomery is also a Clinical lecturer in Musculoskeletal and Sports Injuries, Queen Mary University, London.

Spinal Fellowships and Training:

Mr Montgomery’s first Spinal fellowship was in Addenbrookes Hospital (Cambridge), Ipswich and the Norfolk and Norwich Hospitals. This included Spinal trauma, neurosurgery, degenerative, tumour and complex deformity surgery. He was trained to use a microscope and minimally invasive surgical techniques.
He followed this with 18 months on complex Spinal Fellowship in New Zealand. He was trained to use anterior, lateral, and posterior approaches, and worked in a practice which treated top flight sportsmen. In all his fellowships he was exposed to innovative, evidence based multidisciplinary ways of managing spinal conditions.

Mr Montgomery has had his research presented nationally as well as in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States of America.
