About me

Tim Buxton has over 35 years experience in spinal surgery working in the West Midlands, New Zealand and latterly as a Consult Neurosurgeon in Swansea treating patients across West and South Wales.

Tim has had two lumbar surgeries himself and has considerable empathy with sufferers of pain reaching that point where they need specialist treatment, realising from a personal position the worries that patients have and can offer first hand advise and strategies for care that do not always mean surgery is the first option if it can be avoided. By working with a team of professionally accredited physiotherapists audited results of non invasive therapies show that only 1 patient in 20 seen might need surgery.
