Mr. Montgomery is a Consultant Spinal Orthopaedic Surgeon who set up the Spinal Unit at the new Bart’s and the Royal London Hospital. He has a large practice in both adult degenerative, major trauma surgery and sports related injuries, treating elite and professional athletes. He has featured recently in both Spine News International and The Evening Standard.
He initially developed his interest in Spinal Surgery working at the National Hospital for Neurosurgery, and at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore) as a Junior Doctor, and at Great Ormond Street, and Bart’s as a Registrar. <>Spinal Fellowships: <>Mr. Montgomery’s first Spinal Fellowships were at Addenbrookes Hospital (Cambridge), Ipswich and The Norfolk and Norwich Hospitals. This included spinal trauma, neurosurgery, degenerative, tumour and complex deformity surgery. He was trained to use a microscope and use minimally invasive surgical techniques.
He followed this with 18 months on a complex Spinal Fellowship in New Zealand. He was trained to use anterior, lateral, and posterior approaches, and worked in a practice which treated top-flight sportsmen. In all his fellowships he was exposed to innovative, evidence based multidisciplinary ways of managing spinal conditions. He has done several visitations to the United States of America as well.
Mr Montgomery has had his research presented nationally as well as in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States of America.
