About me

Mr Lam is a senior Consultant orthopaedic spinal surgeon with over 25 years experience in the treatment of complex spinal disorders. He helped establish the internationally renowned Spinal Unit at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital London. He is now working full time at the London Bridge Hospital (accredited as a world-class AOSpine Unit in June 2016), as well as King Edward VII Hospital, London Clinic and Portland Hospital. He has published and lectured extensively, and is regarded as a pioneer in innovative spinal surgery procedures, especially minimal invasive spine surgery. He continues in both clinical and laboratory research into spinal disorders, and is a reviewer for Spine, and European Spine Journals.

In Nov 2019, Mr Lam performed the first robotic spine surgery in the UK followed by the first robotic scoliosis spine surgery in Europe. He offers his patients a full comprehensive program of conservative treatment, physiotherapy and spinal injections to help treat their spinal disorders. In terms of surgery, he is a key opinion leader in the field of minimally invasive spine surgery, cervical and lumbar disc replacements, paediatric spinal deformities (scoliosis and kyphosis), computer navigated and robotic spine surgery. Over the last 10 years, he regularly performs approximately 300 cases annually of minimally invasive surgeries, i.e. sacro-iliac fusion, TLIF, OLIF, LLIF or XLIF and ALIF.

Mr Lam has been involved in a number of key product developments. He is a consultant for Depuy-Synthes (part of Johnson and Johnson), Medtronic, Nuvasive and Globus. He belongs to the AOSpine (www.aospine.org) national and international teaching faculty. He is a founder member of the International Group for the Advancement in Spinal Science or IGASS (www.igass-spine.org) and is the EMEA Regional Director and on the Board of Directors of the Society of Lateral Access Surgery or SOLAS (www.lateralaccess.org). He has been the surgical training supervisor to over 100 advanced training fellowships for spinal surgeons from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East via IGASS and AOSpine.

In 2009, Mr Lam was the first British recipient of the Gold Medal of Honor presented by Mde Chirac of France, on behalf of the Etoile Européenne du Dévouement Civil et Militaire (EEDCM), for his work in the treatment of children with spinal deformities, and ejectee pilots of the Royal Air Force, US Air Force and NATO. In 2016, HM King Kigeli V of Rwanda honoured him with the Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Order of the Lion for his work in training surgeons across Africa. In 2019, HM King Yuhi VI of Rwanda further honoured him with the Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Order of the Crested Crane.
