About me

Mr Amjad Shad is a Consultant Neurosurgeon with a well-established private practice at The BMI Meriden Hospital in Coventry, Nuffield Warwick and BMI Three Shires Hospital in Northampton. He has been a Consultant Neurosurgeon at the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust since 2004. In 2012 Mr Shad established the Coventry Brain and Spine Service to offer healthcare providers and patients information on the modern approaches available to treat brain and spine disorders and neck and back pain.

During his training in Edinburgh, Oxford and the USA he gained extensive experience in spinal conditions, including complex spinal problems and pain relief. Through his research Mr Shad has developed a new technique to treat cervical disc problems. This offers patients an alternative to the traditional method of harvesting graft from the hip bone, which can be painful. This new technique has improved post-operative recovery rates in most patients. Through the Coventry Brain and Spine Service he also provides general spinal care services to help patients suffering with back, leg and neck pain.

Where possible Mr Shad performs disc replacement surgery rather than disc fusion, a procedure used to alleviate the symptoms caused by damaged discs. This surgical procedure uses a new medical device designed to replace the disc which sits between the spinal vertebrae. The disc, which is damaged or diseased, is surgically removed and replaced by an artificial disc prosthesis which features a ball and socket design to preserve motion.

Throughout his career Mr Shad has embraced new techniques within the neurosurgery field and has been involved in some ground breaking surgeries. This includes the removal of a golf-ball size brain tumour through a patient’s nose. The tumour, a meningioma, was squashing the brainstem in the cerebellopontine angle tucked behind the main arteries supplying blood to the brain. It also had vital nerves that were exiting the brain stretched around its periphery making the surgery challenging. He has also used pin-hole surgery to treat a Tarlov cyst, which had been causing lower back and leg pain to the patient for over 18 years.
