About me

Mr Montgomery is Clinical Lead for Spinal Surgery at The Royal London Hospital (Barts Health) where he has lead the department since 2012, and set up the Spinal Unit at the new Hospital. It is the largest spinal trauma unit in the UK, and covers a population of two million people for elective surgery. Mr Montgomery's team at The Royal London was the first in the UK to use the robotic assisted arm in spinal surgery.

The surgery Mr Montgomery performs involves using microscopes, and minimally invasive techniques. He performs anterior, posterior and lateral minimal access approaches for lumbar surgery, anterior and posterior cervical surgery, and complex deformity cases.

He regularly treats city workers, as well as amateur and elite athletes. He has treated Olympic gold medalists, professional boxing champions, international rugby players, team sky cyclists, as well as patients with degenerative and complex conditions.

Mr Montgomery is honorary senior lecturer at Queen Mary University, and has presented across the globe from the USA to Europe and Australasia. He has regularly been faculty for AO Spine Middle East, and chaired a conference on minimal access surgery in Kuwait. He won the best presentation poster at the International Society for Study of the Lumbar Spine, and has featured in Spine News International. He was recently invited to the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia to present two spinal studies in a global symposium. He has had three systematic reviews in spinal surgery accepted for publication this year.
