About me

Mr Syed Aftab is a Consultant Spinal Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Royal London (Barts Health NHS Trust). Having completed pre-clinical medicine at Pembroke College, Cambridge University, he went on to Edinburgh University for clinical medicine. He underwent higher surgical training in Orthopaedics and Spinal Surgery on the London NE Thames rotation at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore.

Syed completed his advanced fellowship in Spinal Surgery at the Royal London Hospital and is trained in the management of adult / paediatric deformity, spinal trauma, spinal tumour surgery, spinal infection surgery, minimally invasive spinal surgery and degenerative spinal surgery. Furthermore, he continues to broaden his experience with visitations to international centres of excellence for spinal surgery (Antwerp Belgium, Bordeaux France, Neustadt Germany). He has a strong interest in minimally invasive surgery in trauma and complex degenerative spine.
