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. He also gained a Master of Science at University College London in Trauma and Orthopaedics during his training. 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.

Syed believes that the best outcomes for patients can only be achieved when decisions are carefully considered and works within the framework of a multidisciplinary team which includes other spinal orthopaedic and neurosurgeons, anaesthetists, medical specialists and pain specialists. He is the Clinical Effectiveness Lead for Orthopaedics at the Royal London and is actively involved in teaching other doctors, nurses and allied health professionals. He organizes the ‘Spine Term’ for the Royal London Hospital and Sir Percival Pott Orthopaedic Rotations.

Syed has published widely in a number of peer-reviewed medical journals and is actively involved in research into spinal surgery. He has presented at national and international conferences.
