Hey Gil,

There was a member here named Chris G. He had an m6 cervical procedure done by this doctor and he is very happy with the results. Sadly, he has has not posted here since his surgery. I see his updates on facebook and he is skiing... working... very active and happy. It would be good for the doctor and good for the community if he posted his results.

Chris does amazing woodworking. Some of his work is featured here CLGWoodworking on Etsy. I've seen pictures of furniture he's built that's absolutely beautiful.

All the best,

Mark

PS... if you are interested in the M6... consider Dr. Warnke. His pricing is lower than the comptetition. He has a great deal of M6 experience with more than 100 cervical ADR's done and more than 80 of them m6's. I was able to observe him in the OR and he's excellent.

Hi ISpine community.

yes. Nick Boeree is a wonderful surgeon and I am very pleased with my 2 level M6 C cervical operation.

I am back to biking, skiing, kayaking, tuna fishing, and woodworking.

Nick has a wonderful bedside manner and does not overpromise what he can do.

I am thrilled with what he did for me. I had previously had 3 neck surgeries.

Nick put in 2 sizes of the M6 C and the Xray shows they are placed perfectly.

I have my surgery on Tuesday and was walking around London on friday.

best regards- Chris G

I managed to find Mr Boeree after a chance conversation and recommend and this chap has turned my life around. He is what other posts have said...professional, direct (in a good way) and a very nice bloke.

My history says alot because before Mr Boeree things were not looking too good.




Male 42 years old...Five foot eleven, 14 (ish) stone,

1999, I hurt my back at work (manual lifting/twisting) ... sleeping in lay-by's at work more like!
99-01, one cordial / four lumber injections followed by MRI's
01, Discogram as opposed to the more pleasant Discotech!
01, Graf Ligament Stabilisation operation (Stanmore hospital) at L4/L5...no real pain relief. Or come to think of it no actual "Stabilisation"
04 more MRI's
04, Another Discogram.... no need to dress up this time!
05, facet injections
05, bone scan which revealed screws from Graf op had come loose ( I tried to tell them that before the scan but would they believe me would they ****!)
06, screws removed, "Dynesis procedure" attempted (by Mr Boeree) but immediately removed as fixing of screws were impossible after Graf operation screw damage?
07, ADR (artificial disc replacement) at L4/L5 L5/S1 by Nick Boeree at Southampton Hospital
07 October, back at work and driving with lack of feeling in both feet, just hope your not in front of me at the lights!
2011, Feeling great. . . occasional back ache at most, very mild sciatica leg pain ..could be where the nerve was trapped for so long I'm told, I think the ADR operation was/is absolutely successful.

Smile Total Disc Replacement

I had a total disc replacement by Nick Boeree nearly 6 years ago. It was the best thing I ever did. He was fantastic, I have had regular check ups with him since and no problems whatsoever. The man is a genius!!

All the best for the future

I'm so sorry to hear this as from what I've been reading this man was a gifted and wonderful spine surgeon whom I'm sure will be dearly missed by his collegues and his patients as well as family. RIP Mr.Boeree

Grateful wife... thanks so much for letting us know this very sad news. I never met Dr. Boeree but like others have said, I have only heard wonderful things about him. Several of my clients have been to him with great success.

My heart goes out to Dr. Boeree and his family.

Mark
