Mr Vindlacheruvu has been an NHS consultant for over 5 years, serving the Essex and North East London population. He undertakes all of the vascular surgery (aneurysms and AVM).  The team approach and expertise makes Queens the top neurovascular unit in London. He has a large volume spinal practice. Excellent results stem from careful patient assessment and well-performed operations. Consultations include demonstration of scans and a careful explanation of treatment options, including aims, risks and benefits.

Surgery is rarely mandatory and he makes judicious use of targeted nerve root injections (performed either under CT guidance or by pain specialists). He does not use gimmicky implants (which are marketed without evidence of durable results). Minimally invasive surgery, also referred to as “keyhole surgery” (typical lumbar microdiscectomy wound of 2cm) means that patients are mobile within hours of surgery, and fit for discharge within 24 hours.

Mr Vindlacheruvu’s aim is to restore people to normal activities. His sporting interests give him insight into exercises appropriate to promote back muscle strength, develop core stability, and restore range of motion. He undertakes a robust audit for all of his surgical procedures.
